Pageant of the Decade is a case featured in Criminal Case, appearing as the sixteenth case of the game. It is the sixteenth case set in the city of Crimsonden and also the first one to take place in the Spanish City district.

Plot

Louis and the player went into the Spanish City district, only for Chief Carpenter to tell them that they needed to patrol a fashion pageant. Asking why they needed to patrol the fashion pageant, Eleanor replied that it was a regular event in Spanish City, and the perfect place for the Tinted Trader to spread their influence. The team went to the fashion show, and took their seats to see the show. The team learned that the front runner Tiana Crowford wasn't in the stage, and the show continued, before one girl was crowned the winner. The sponsor of Tiana, Lizzie Paul jumped up saying that it wasn't fair that they did not wait for Tiana, before the team started suspecting something and gone awry. Louis and the player got up, and went to Tiana's makeup room, and knocked, before getting no response, and then barged in, seeing Tiana stabbed by a shard of glass. The team suspected Lizzie, the sponsor as she was the last person to see Tiana. The team also suspected Allen Roberts, a fashion designer, who judged the victim in her earlier rounds, and he said in a sad tone that the city had lost a bright star. The team also suspected the winner of the contest Jayne Granger who looked shocked saying Tiana was her friend and that she was saddened by her death. Analysis revealed that the killer drank energy drinks, and ate corn, before learning that the after-contest party had been turned into a memorial for the victim.

Louis and the player went to the memorial, where most people were saying nice things about the victim, and how her future was completely cut short due to the killer. The team decided to search the area and found enough evidence to suspect Gale Summerfield, the victim's boyfriend who seemed to be wanting revenge against the killer very badly and Imogen Wheelclock, the runner up after Jayne, who said that the victim was a worthy competition to face off against. The team also found out that the killer ate chocolate after finding it on a cushion which the killer used to wipe off Tiana's blood. The team also found out that Lizzie had thought of taking back her sponsor because she had concerns about Tiana's win, and that Allen had gone with everybody's opinion that Tiana was the best model, but secretly he thought that she was not versatile in her answers, before learning that somebody was searching through the audience seats.

The team found Malcolm looking through the audience seats, and he said that he thought the drugs might have been hidden in the audience seat, as that was the easy way to consume them, but Louis said that that the criminal conspiracy wasn't a simple one, before learning that Jayne had thought of dropping out of the contest, as she feared Tiana's win, and that Imogen had accidentally ruined Tiana's dress for one of the rounds as she was being careless with her drink. The team also finally learned that Gale and the victim had an argument when he wanted the victim to quit fashion, and the victim gave him an ultimatum, stop with the "quit fashion" requests, or she would break up with him. Finally the killer was revealed to be Jayne.

The player and Louis confronted Jayne about murdering Tiana, to which Jayne said that she was practically forced into it. She told the team that Allen had privately told Tiana that she lacked confidence, while explaining her fashion choices and Tiana had started to worry that her front-running spot was slipping away. She continued saying that she saw Tiana take a packet of drugs from somebody, desperate to win. She said that she went to confront Tiana to which Tiana just got up coldly and picked up the glass shard. Jayne understood that Tiana was going to kill her to win, so she wrestled with Tiana to get the glass shard away from her, and stabbed Tiana. Judge Cross said that she should have informed the judges, and not killed Tiana before sentencing Jayne to 10 years in prison.

The team then regrouped and discussed how they needed to take down The Tinted Trader as soon as possible before they became a larger threat. The team decided to ask Evelyn Harmon for help against the trader, and Rosalyn also called James Clarke. The team and Evelyn discussed about their plans, and Evelyn said that she would employ her informants as soon as possible, and that they would be hearing of the crime rate soon enough. The team went to the memorial square for Tiana, where Evelyn and the player found a packet of drugs. Evelyn sent off half of the drugs to Ian, and said she needed the other half. Ian analyzing the drugs, said that they increased somebody's wants, such as Tiana's want to win the pageant, which was increased by a lot, so that even murder would be enough for her goals. Ian remarked that he was noticing something weird, that earlier the conspiracy wanted Ronald and Colton to take over the Swift lands, but after the drug, they wanted Sybil's takeover, saying that Sybil's wants to take over Colton's position was extremely high, and that the conspiracy could have used Sybil as a "puppet" after the drug production was finished. The team informed Evelyn of all this, and she said that her informants were in the district.

On the other hand, Gale came to the station to file a complaint against Eleanor. Gale said that Eleanor was an angry woman, who didn't deserve the job she had, and that he had compiled the documents in the audience seats. The team went to the audience seats to collect Gale's file, which Rosalyn analyzed. Rosalyn said that Gale was a misogynist who couldn't stand a woman chief in power, but that she had noticed something suspicious in the file, marked as the "Gardner incident". The team asked Eleanor what was the Gardner incident, and Eleanor shut her mouth, saying that they didn't need to know, and as soon Ian asked if it had to do with Ansel Gardner, Eleanor's eyes filled with rage, and told the team to leave, saying that they didn't need to know before saying that Ansel knew, and that was enough for her.

Allison and the player also went to the makeup room, to take the microphone from the floor of the room. Allison said that the microphone used to monitor the contestants might have captured a few voices at least about the identity of the person who gave Tiana the drugs. Allison and the player sent the unlocked microphone to Joel, who said that he identified the voice as an inventor of the district, called Lana O'Malley. The team interrogated Lana about the drugs, and Lana said that she had just been instructed to give the drugs to a client, and that she didn't even know Tiana by name. She said that if the team was willing to pay her, she would change her allegiance. Eleanor begrudgingly paid her and she revealed that the drugs were sent to a party on the beach, and that the team needed to go there....

Two days later..., A figure stood in a burning building. Their reign over Spanish City was slipping. They needed to make a statement to show who was the boss in the district. The mayor might have the upper hand now, but soon they will learn. And their puppet... he was slipping very badly... The figure soon was greeted by another figure, but as soon the second figure entered, the flames rose... And a figure escaped through a tunnel...
