Role in cases
- The Murdered Milker, Case #1 in Townville:
The team headed to DiGiappo farm after Rico's cousin, Cecilia DiGiappo, reported her brother (Facondo) was dead. The killer turned out to be their very cousin, Rico Marchi. Rico killed Facondo with a hammer at the farm after he left his hut because Facondo was about to reveal some truth.
The team was told to find out what the truth behind Facondo's murder was, and it was discovered that Rico's company was selling drugs to DiGiappo farm to make people addicted to their milk. Rico was already in jail but Cecilia was arrested for this, though she wasn't incarcerated.
- Murder Behind Bars, Case #11 in Townville:
Shockingly for the team, Rico was found dead in his cell at Townville's Prison Center. His death was very painful as he was smashed against the jail bars repeatedly. His cellmate was Steve Zasts, who had killed Cecilia, Rico's cousin. Steve's psychologist said that both Rico and Steve hated each other. The team also found out that he had kind of a relationship with Octavius Keys, a police officer who would eventually join their team. The killer was in fact Rico's cellmate, Steve. He wanted to be free and by pretending to be crazy by killing Rico, they couldn't try him for his crimes, but his plan failed and he was sent to a psychiatric institution for criminals.
