Sargassum Slaying is the ninth case in PetersCorporal's second season, Blue Coasts, as well as the second one in the South Coast district.

Case Background

Nora MacMillon, in a failed attempt to be friendly, talked about her past and revealed that when she was 29 she had been the runner-up for Miss Blue Coasts. The conversation was interrupted by George Nearnight, who was there to assign the player and Nora to a new investigation. A dead body had been reported at Sargassum Lake by a chef, Nathan Deers. When they got there, they saw that it was not only a death but that also the dead man, Bill Hawks, had been kidnapped before being left alone and tied up on a boat in the lake. However, the kidnapping circumstances were unusual: no ransom was asked for, the victim didn't show signs of fighting, he hadn't been drugged and he was for some reason left lying on a boat in a lake.

During the case, Megan Staples revealed that her daughter Susana Staples was not her biological child. She said that the context in which she adopted her child made her a very brave person and that she was proud of it, but did not say what that context was.

The team discovered that Bill was the owner of FladyWear, a company sponsoring Miss Blue Coast's event. They went to his office and mysteriously found some wakizashi with Nora's DNA on it. She said it had to be from the time she picked the evidence but seemed to be a bit frightened after seeing the sword and Kyle Montgomery actually confirmed that her DNA had been there for years. Nora did not say anything but Salma Harrison (who had apparently befriended Kyle) was there and said that even though she wouldn't speak about what she had heard from her secret microphone, she might tell them that Bill Hawks must have bought the wakizashi from Abraham Senna, a collector and seller of knives and swords. Nora asked Abraham where he'd gotten the wakizashi from, but he said he did not remember.

In the dead of the night, somebody broke into the Evergreengate Complex (where the team had just investigated Bill's office) and at first the team couldn't determine what was missing but managed to find out that Bill may have been buying bladed weapons from Abraham Senna to resell them, which was most probably an illegal business of his. Abraham claimed to be unaware of what Bill did with the weapons he bought from him.

The killer and kidnapper turned out to be Julia Hawks, Bill's wife. They both had agreed to stage the kidnapping to get out of financial troubles with the help of her brother, Alex Jackman. The Court sentenced her to 25 years in jail with parole in 10 for the charges of extortion attempt, obstruction of justice and voluntary manslaughter.

The next day, the player also had to interrogate Julep Montgomery since they thought that Salma had learnt about Abraham Senna from her and the secret microphone. She said she knew more or less what Senna was doing and that something was hiding behind Miss Blue Coasts and that she was trying to uncover it. What they ended up with, was the fact that some of the pageant's sponsors were involved in some monkey business about weapons. Moreover, thanks to Takeshi Meuro, the team was able to put together that Elizabeth Perkins had been the lover of Reuben Thacks, which explained why her murder was relevant in the cold case investigation.
