"The Limbless Man's successor is on the loose and a young girl pays the price as her body is found in an abandoned warehouse. Only you can catch the killer and stop this madness!"

Red-Handed is the twelfth case in Starlight Shores and the sixth one situated in the Central City district.


At the end of the last case, a warning had been sent out all over Starlight Shores, saying a serial killer is loose in the city (this serial killer being branded the 'Imitator'). While figuring out their next move, the SSPD receive coordinates from an anonymous source leading to an abandoned warehouse. After arriving on the scene, Linda and the player discover the mutilated body of Sadie Saunders, tied up with her hands brutally severed off.

Afterword Very good case, I like it a lot! I'm sure the district finale will be awesome. PetersCorporal (talk) 21:08, May 2, 2017 (UTC)

During the investigation five people were flagged as suspects: property developer, Isaac Holmes (his business card was found at the murder scene), stage hand Claudia Adaji (she proposed to Sadie but was rejected), Chinese mobster Dayiu (she sent a katana to the victim with 'I'll slice you with my sword' engraved in it), tour guide Brian Kolinsky (he had made notes on the 'Imitator's' killings) and finally athlete Deming Takakachi (he was seen photographed with Sadie).

Your hands will be mine.

—The threat Linda recieved

At the end of Chapter 1, Linda and the player are going over the case when a piece of paper blew onto Linda's face. After looking at the paper Linda was horrified as it was a picture of her, all scratched with a threat written on the side. After the paper was analysed by Adam Russ, he could confirm it was a clear threat sent to Linda from the Imitator and that the Chief wanted to remove her from the case.

After another twist which was Claudia threatening to jump off a bridge the team finally indicated Brian Kolinsky as Sadie's killer and the "imitator". At first denying it, Brian finally cracked given the overwhelming evidence against him and admitted to killing Sadie and them other three girls. When asked why he explained that it was his father who caught the original Limbless Man but people only remember Frederick Maragway. He then said he killed them girls so he could be remembered and live on in people's memory. After Chief Ramone told him he would be going to jail for a long time, Brian laughed saying that didn't matter as his legacy will live on forever.

At the trial Judge Donovan was disgusted at Brian. He sentenced Brian to life imprisonment. Brian then pulled out a small, concealable dagger. He grabbed Eloise Donovan, the judge's daughter, and put the knife to her throat. Brian fled the court taking Eloise at knifepoint with him.

Later on in the investigation, Chief Ramone came with the player to investigate Brian's whereabouts by searching Central City Park while Linda went to see Isaac Holmes about a problem.

Isaac Holmes reveals that he was the one who sent the coordinates to Alice so he could report the body but not be suspected. He also says he found a memory stick but lost it when he found the body. After finding the memory stick and having it analysed Alice says there were documents about a safe house to flee to if caught. Alice then stated this safe house was located in the Slums. At the end of the case, ignoring the Chief's warning, Linda decided to head to the Slums herself without informing anybody so she could apprehend Brian.
