Pave the Way is a case featured in Criminal Case, appearing as the thirty-third case of the game. It is the thirty-third case set in the city of Crimsonden and also the fourth one to take place in the Church Roads district.

Plot

The manhunt started for Gale Summerfield, so the team could find him, before the Irish gang could. After a few hours, Malcolm reported back saying the manhunt had been a success, but Gale had been found dead. Elijah and the player went to the scene of the crime, to find Gale poisoned, and Malcolm remarked that he had been poisoned for atleast 24 hours already, since his face was completely green, so this was before the bounty for Gale was announced. The team started investigating and suspected Bianca Royle, a gambler well known in Church Roads. The team also suspected a gardener they had suspected before named Griffin Woods, who said that he had not known the victim. The team also suspected a butcher called Gabriel Lakes who said that Gale often bought meat from him, and the bounty on him was unfortunate. The team also learned that the killer ate figs, and sang sea shanties, before Christian burst in demanding they bring Gale's killer to him.

Christian said that somebody killing Gale before he ordered was a disgrace before Elijah punched him saying that he was a dumbass, and could die and nobody would care. The team decided to search the gang headquarters to suspect gang member and priest Crofton Watson. The team also learned that the killer did gardening, and also learned that Bianca had the victim had a falling out because the victim was being selfish towards her regarding loaned money. The team also learned that Griffin and the victim had a falling out because of the victim's sexist tendencies, before learning that the victim's home was vacant for a while, and that somebody was moving into it.

The team found Christian in Gale's old home, and Christian said that Gale had bought the home with a loan with help of Christian, so Christian could use the home. Elijah said that logic made no sense, and forced Christian out. The team also found out that Gale had once seen Gabriel and his girlfriend, Tiana together, and freaked out, but Gabriel said that the age gap was way too much, and Tiana was like a daughter to him. The team also questioned Crofton after learning that the victim was planning to expose him for being a gang member. After finding the motives behind the murders, the team finally arrested the butcher Gabriel Lakes for the murder.

Elijah confronted Gabriel about the murder asking why of all people, he killed Gale secretly. Gabriel refused the accusations saying that somebody else killed him, before giving into the pressure, and confessing. He said that Christian had his child in custody, and that he wanted to play a sick game with Gale after Gale tried to leave the gang. He pressured Gabriel into murdering Gale, and Gabriel made the murder painless with the arsenic. Then Christian announced his sick game, and returned Gabriel's child. Elijah mentioned how this was not the first time the gang had used a child as blackmail, and they needed to take Christian down. Judge Cross said that he could have informed the police, instead of going along with the sick game, before sentencing Gabriel to 15 years in prison.

Miranda Gardner then came to the station slightly shyly saying that she had lost something of hers in the gang headquarters. Elijah eyerolled and the team went to the HQ to look for the missing thing, and they found a torn spreadsheet by the woods. Corinne pointed out how the spreadsheet was of the police station. Joel's analysis revealed how somebody was planning to arson the building, and the team confronted Maria. Maria said no, and then Allison slapped her saying she was a liar, before she told that she would find her stuff herself and that she hated the police station.

The team also found Rosalyn running and covered with mud. The team calmed her down and she said that Christian had found out. The team went to face Christian, where he angrily screamed at the team, and Rosalyn said that she was down with him. She said that he was a horrible brother, and a gang leader, and that if he died, she wouldn't care. Elijah then said that he killed innocent people like Rose Reynolds and Harry Gardner and the team shot Christian in the arm to stop his activities for a few weeks.

A drug dealer then came to the station, saying that he had hid plans in Gale's home. When the team asked for the plans he said that he had lost them in the home, and that they could take Christian down. The team searched Gale's home and found the plans for drugs being hidden at an innocent tea parlor. The team decided to rush to the before the drugs could be distributed, and Rosalyn and Malcolm accomponied the team.
