—Case Teaser

Party Till One Drops is a case featured in Criminal Case as the second case of the game. It is the second case set in the Bayside Avenue district of Rosenoque.


The player, on a night shift with Leigh Tempest, was called to a scene of a murder by a local club. When they got to the crime, they found a battered corpse known as a partygoer Clare Rivke. Ethan September told the detectives that Clare had died via being pushed to death from the local lighthouse's tower despite being found in the club.

They suspected the victim's friend, Danica Quincy, after she was exposed to be stalking the victim for her suspicious intents behind something in Bayside. They also suspected Abdul Carla, Janice's brother and DJ after the victim stole his discs, resulting in him losing several gigs at a number of clubs. They marked party girl Gloria Uppington after she had stolen the victim's ticket for an exclusive show. They soon found out that lighthouse owner Nathan Wistan had a feud with her as well as Major's friend and victim's boyfriend Anthony Wolf being rejected after he tried to propose to her. Despite all of the motives, the correct evidence was put together to determine the killer to be Nathan Wistan.

At first, he denied the accusation, but quickly admitted to the murder. Nathan, annoyed by Clare, was getting tired of her trying to make him do a ‘’better’’ job at owning the lighthouse. She was so annoying that she even tried to make people think she was the beautiful owner of the place. Nathan confronted her at the lighthouse’s peak, on which she said that he was too old to own a wondrous place like the lighthouse and its view. Enraged, he pushed her off, thinking she wouldn’t die so easily. He was sentenced to 20 years.

Suspicious of Anthony, Leigh and the player checked up on him. To prove innocence as a mere friend of Major's, they checked the boardwalk where they found a torn photo of a young Major and Anthony. They then talked to Major, who believed that his friend was innocent as well but agreed to checking the party club to ensure the truth. However fingerprints on a small number of test tubes raised suspicion on Anthony, who claimed he had nothing to do with the test tubes.

After talking to Abdul about his stolen phone, the team got invited to a party on a local yacht.
