Payday is a case featured in Criminal Case: Pheadmouth. It is the ninth case in the city of Pheadmouth and the third one take place in the Italian Street district.


Leo invited Aiden and the player to the most popular pizza restaurant, Pizzadise. However, when the team got there, they found the body of food critic Ana Conte, who was cut in half in front of the restaurant's entrance.

Due to Ned, Rosamund and Christian being unavailable, Leo had to be the player's partner in the case while Aiden took the body to autopsy. Mid-investigation, Trent tracked the victim's movements before she was killed and found out that the last place she had visited was the Pheadmouth supermarket. Later, a crowd of Pizzadise customers demanded that the team had to finish the murder investigation so that they could eat pizza again. After collecting enough evidence, Leo and the player incarcerated Pizzadise's owner Sara Mancini for Ana's murder.

Admitting to the murder, Sara told the team that Ana had ruined her parents life. Twenty years ago, Sara's parents were the owners of Pizzadise, which was very popular at that time, while Ana was also a restaurant owner, which was not really popular. Jealous of Pizzadise, Ana started to badmouth other customers that Pizzadise was a secret prostitution area. Being exhausted by Ana's rumours, Sara's parents had to close Pizzadise and committed suicide, leaving Sara alone, who had to work to be a pizza chef so that she could reopen Pizzadise again. Eighteen years later, by Sara's hard work, she finally reopened Pizzadise and became the owner. However, Ana still came and badmouthed the restaurant. Being too angry, Sara decided to kill Ana by cutting her in half by a chainsaw. Judge Park sentenced her to 15 years in prison.

Post-trial, chef assistant Adolfo Arias' boyfriend, Oscar Thompson, came to Rosamund and the player, reporting that his boyfriend had gone missing. After finding Adolfo's tablet in Pizzadise's kitchen, the team sent it to Trent, who managed to identify Adolfo's whereabouts. The team, along with Oscar, then headed to the town park, where they found Adolfo preparing for his five-year anniversary picnic with Oscar. The two then shared a kiss and enjoyed their picnic.

Meanwhile, Santorini family member Sofia Santorini asked the player and Ned to solve a coded paper, which was inside her handbag. After finding the handbag in the supermarket, the team found the coded paper and sent it to Trent, who told the team that it leaded to Santorini mansion's big clock. The team with Sofia got there, where they found an envelope inside the clock, which was a letter from the late Francesco Santorini. The letter told that after Francesco's death, all of his fortune would be left to one of his four children, including Sofia, Artemio, Vitto and museum owner Riccardo Santorini. However, Ned then discovered that Vitto had eavesdropped them behind the door. After being asked, Vitto said that he just came and asked the team to find his missing handkerchief, which was found by the team in Pizzadise's entrance.

After all the events, the team suspected that Vitto was hiding something. However, Chief Vinh then told the team to take a break for new year. Rosamund and the player then decided to visit Pizzadise once again and asked Adolfo for help cooking the food for the station's new year party, to which he completely agreed. The team (along with Adolfo's help) then had an extremely happy new year party. And finally....
