—Case Teaser

Road Rage is a case featured in Criminal Case as the eighth case of The Mystery Continues. It is the second case set in the Crimson Banks district of Concordia.

Plot

While Maddie told the player about her mother, Eileen, over a cup of coffee, they received word from Commissioner Ramirez that a body had been found on Crimson Bridge, prompting the pair to head there. At the scene, they found the body of taxicab driver Kirk Salieri tied to his taxicab, the top of his head removed and bleeding. Dick confirmed that Kirk was killed after someone drove his taxicab with his head connected to the road, resulting in the road removing the top of Kirk's head. The pair first question Italian gang leader Franca Capecchi, potato vendor Sean Flynn and grocer Margot Petree before hearing from George that the victim's mother wanted to see them.

Kirk's mother, Kendra Salieri, requested they catch the killer quickly and invited them to search their house for any more leads. There, they found reason to suspect fellow taxicab driver Mark Sitwell. They then went on and continued the investigation, discovering several motives. Giulietta then informed the pair that Kendra had died. Giulietta confessed that the police had found her poisoned body in her house, prompting the pair to search the Salieri house once more. They soon were able to piece the clues together, revealing the killer to be the victim's late mother, Kendra.

Following the revelation, the pair headed back to the Salieri house where they found a suicide letter from Kendra. The letter revealed that Kendra had killed her son after discovering he planned to kill her in order to gain his inheritance quicker. When she found out, she was furious and confronted him. Kirk denied it, causing Kendra to snap and knock him out. She then tied him up and killed him with the taxicab as revenge. When she realized what she had done, she panicked and fled back home. After a while, the guilt engulfed her, prompting her to poison herself as she didn't want to live without Kirk. With this new information, the pair were able to close the case.

After the killer was revealed, Giulietta's friend Enzo Jonas requested to speak with the player. He admitted that Giulietta had recently been worried about the conflict between the two communities and asked the player to help him find a way to cheer her up. The pair then went to the marketplace and found a necklace to gift Giulietta. Enzo then met Giulietta and gave her the necklace, cheering her up.

Meanwhile, Franca demanded the player and Isaac go to the Crimson Bridge as she had discovered a body. On the bridge, the pair found the body of Irish gangster Paddy O'Neill with a large gash in his chest. Richard confirmed that Paddy was killed after a sharp weapon, most likely an axe, was thrust into his chest. The autopsy also revealed a torn note in Paddy's pocket which the pair fixed. The note revealed that Paddy along with Sean, who had recently joined the Irish gang, planned to attack the Italian side of the river as payback for the Italians accusing the Irish of murder. They then returned to Sean's stand in the marketplace to find and arrest him for plotting an attack. When they arrived, however, Margot informed the pair that Sean had ran away from the marketplace a few minutes ago. At the end of the case, the team prepared to head onto the Italian side of the river to stop Sean's attack.
