—Case Teaser

Out for the Count is a case featured in Criminal Case, it appears as the fifty-first case in Explore the World and the one hundred and sixty-fifth overall. It takes place in Africa appearing as the fourth case in the region.


Following the discovery that Lawrence had paid poacher Arno Adhiambo to clear out the medical facility where Drug Ares was stored, Connor instructed the player and Bradley to head to his camp in Maputo to arrest him for helping Lawrence's schemes. The pair soon arrived at the camp, only to find Arno impaled on ivory tusks. The player and Bradley soon started the investigation, labelling tribal leader Adaeze Okafor as a suspect along with safari guide Zubaida Ghaniyah and tusk collector Xadreque Cleyton. As the pair recapped the investigation in the camp, they spotted something silver in the dirt, Nia's necklace.

Shocked by the discovery, they questioned Nia, who confessed that she dropped her necklace when she went to confront Arno and his poachers on what they were doing to the animals a while back. Afterwards, they continued the investigation, labelling the victim's son Shakil Adhiambo as a suspect. Mid-investigation, Anya and Takagi told the pair that they'd looked into Arno's payments, discovering that Arno had been under the Zodiac's employment for a while. With this news, they headed back to Arno's tent, discovering that Nia quarreled with the victim as she was the head of an anti-poaching foundation. Finally, they found reason to arrest Shakil for the murder.

Shakil confessed to killing his father, insisting that he didn't know what came over him. Shakil sighed, admitting that his father had been pressuring him to join the poaching business despite his protests and one day, Arno took Shakil out hunting. When they came across an elephant, Arno demanded that Shakil kill it, prompting Shakil to refuse. Realizing that he could never take over Arno's empire, he tried to flee the camp, where he was approached by a suited man who told him to stand up to his father. When he came back to the camp, he insisted that he lost all control and attacked his father, impaling him. Shakil started crying, swearing that he never wanted to do that to his father. In court, Judge Armstrong and the team realized that Shakil had been drugged by the Zodiac to commit the crime, likely so the Zodiac could tie up loose ends, thus remanding Shakil in custody pending a psychiatric evaluation.

Post-trial, the team realized that the Zodiac were still dealing Drug Ares out, prompting Connor to instruct Riya and Anthony to investigate alongside the player. They first spoke to Shakil who confessed that he was taking antibiotics to treat an infection. The trio then headed to Shakil's tent where they found the antibiotics, sending them to Anthony for analysis. Anthony confirmed that the antibiotics were laced with the Zodiac's drug, as well as revealing that Takagi was able to trace the antibiotics back to The Divine Purpose, meaning someone in the group was dealing Drug Ares. They then spoke to Spencer about it, who insisted that his group would never do that, telling them to visit an open house they were hosting in Antananarivo for proof.

Meanwhile, Nia requested the player and Bradley's help in dismantling Arno's poaching business. They first spoke to Zubaida about Arno's poaching, who directed them to her safari lodge where she kept evidence of Arno's crimes. The trio searched through the lodge and found Zubaida's documents, revealing proof of Xadreque and Arno's dealings. With the proof in hand, they confronted Xadreque about the illegal poaching, fining him for his crimes. Nia then thanked the pair for their help, insisting that she would be able to shut down Arno's operation for good.

Finally, the team discussed the discovery that a member of The Divine Purpose was dealing the Zodiac's drug. Despite Spencer insisting that his group were innocent, Connor told the team that they needed to attend the open house to learn more.
