Pushing Up Daisies is a case featured in Criminal Case, appearing as the introductory case of the game. It is the first case set in the Necrina Heights district of Carpathia.


Kenna Cyrus and Liam Winters greeted the player at the Carpathia Airport. On their way to their Headquarters, Liam saw a silhouette of someone stabbing a woman to death. After informing the Chief, she requested Liam to go with the player to the place where he saw the murder. They headed to the cemetery only to find a woman being buried alive. The detective chased the person who's doing the act but unfortunately, he wasn't able to capture the murderer.

Liam realized that they're in trouble after he identified the victim as Maria Dempsey, the daughter of a millionaire. After identifying the victim, they headed back to their Headquarters and helped the player to do hands-on police work such as fixing damaged things and unlocking secured items. The duo sent the victim's body to Robin Conroy for autopsy, in which the coroner found out that the murderer stabbed the woman in the chest using a sharp object and buried her alive after doing it.

During the investigation, the team flagged five suspects: Justin Atkins, who is the gravedigger of the cemetery; Sister Cruz, a nun who met Maria a few hours ago before the murder; Pamela Dempsey, the victim's mother who had a fight with her daughter a few days ago; Udele Clarita, a friend of Maria who believes in superstition and ghosts; and Ronald Mills, the owner of the cemetery who practices witchcraft. At the end, the team gathered enough evidence to catch the sister guilty of intentional homicide.

During her arrest, the nun successfully escaped from the team by going to the basement of the church. When they headed there, they discovered a videotape instead of Sister Cruz. They returned at the nave only to find out that the top of the church has been strung up with interlaced wooden dolls and totems.

Sister Cruz revealed that she is the daughter of the Shadow, and she believes that her father is still alive. She knew that Maria has a connection with her father. To make sure no one knows anything about the serial killer, she brought her to the cemetery and buried her alive. After a few moments, the nun points at the wall of the church, where a tall man is decorating the blood spattered walls with a spray painted "M", which stands for Maria. Liam is terrified by his vision. The nun laughs and points at the wall again, where he discovered that the letter is now gone. Due to these events, Liam arrested Sister Cruz and shipped her off the court.

Henry Logan, who currently serves as the city's judge, expressed his thoughts about the murder and was shocked upon hearing the events that happened in the church. Because of this, he sentenced Sister Cruz to 35 years in jail.

Following the trial, Pamela approached the team terrified, asking for help. She claims that she has seen a group of men roaming her house earlier. When the team headed there, they found out that the kitchen knives are impaling the kitchen's high ceiling. The team gets one of the knives and sends it for an analysis. Jaymie Navarro, the Lab Chief of the department, discovered that the blood on the knives came from people who was murdered by The Shadow. The team informed Pamela about this and told her to be safe at all times.

Meanwhile, Mike Smith have analyzed the video tape they found earlier. In the footage, a woman is being killed by a creature who has the head of a pig and the body of a man. They were shocked to discover that the woman is Udele Clarita, who is a suspect in Maria's murder. Mike found out that the video was recorded in the abandoned forest of Necrina Heights. Without hesitation, the Chief told everyone that they should head to the forest as soon as possible.
