Plot

The team headed to Kingston to investigate José Gutiérrez's warehouse and scientific supplies shipment. Upon arrival, the player and Bradley raced to the warehouse where they found the bruised and bloody body of Jaliqai, Mongol tribe chieftain's wife who Riya and the player helped get a job as a truck driver back in Mongolia. The pair quickly figured out that Jaliqai must have been driving the truck delivering the shipment, noting that the truck containing the supplies had been taken, likely during the murder. Nia confirmed that Jaliqai had been killed after sustaining injuries to the neck and skull. They first suspected José Gutiérrez on the murder before questioning seamstress Rosemarie Schnell and warehouse supervisor Edwin Grant. Takagi then told the team that Jaliqai's truck had been dumped in the Cross Roads neighbourhood shortly after the murder.

The pair quickly headed to the neighbourhood where they found the truck crashed into a tree. There, they suspected reggae musician Sid Campbell and lawyer Amanda Prince, as well as discovering that Edwin was in love with the victim and that Jaliqai accidentally ruined a dress Rosemarie had been working on. They then leaned that José was clearing out his warehouse. After they confronted José and stopped the clear-out, along with discovering Jaliqai was working with Amanda to bring José's drug empire down, they found reason to arrest Edwin for the murder.

Edwin initially denied involvement before confessing, insisting that he had no choice and needed to kill her. Edwin told the duo that while snooping inside Jaliqai's truck, he'd discovered that Jaliqai was informing Amanda of José's criminal activities, including details on how he had been helping store the drugs. Worried that Jaliqai would get him arrested, he equipped himself with the knuckle dusters. When Jaliqai got out of the truck, he beat her until she died. In a mad panic, he drove the truck away and crashed it to dispose of the evidence. In court, Edwin pleaded for a light sentence, prompting Judge Armstrong to sentence him to thirty-five years in prison for murder and assisting criminal activities.

Post-trial, the player and Riya spoke to Amanda about working with Jaliqai to bring down José's drug empire. Amanda told the duo that Jaliqai had been building up evidence and had hidden it in the city, with plans to tell Amanda it's location on the day of the murder. They then searched her truck and found he location of the box, sending it to Anya for analysis. Anya then told them that the box contained concrete proof of José's drug dealings, as well as revealing Jaliqai had compiled information on The Zodiac. Anya then revealed that José was a member of the Zodiac, under the codename Libra, saying that his purpose in the Zodiac was to gather supplies for the society. With concrete proof of José's crimes, they raced back to the warehouse to arrest him, only to find he'd vanished.

The pair searched through the warehouse to find out where José had gone, only to find a burner phone inside a carboard box. Takagi confirmed that the burner phone belonged to Edwin Grant and contained messages about José lying low in an undisclosed location. They then confronted Edwin about the messages who confessed that José had fled to his estate in Caracas to lie low following Jaliqai's discoveries, handing them the coordinates of the estate.

After helping Spencer arrange the flowers for his wedding to Aurora, the team held an urgent meeting aboard the plane to discuss the Zodiac. Knowing that José had fled to Caracas, the team set a course to Venezuela to apprehend José once and for all...
