The Spooktober Heads Up

Secrets Inside the Rose Mansion is a case featured in Criminal Case: Pheadmouth. It is the fifth case in the city of Pheadmouth and also the fifth one to take place in the Irish Valley district.


Christian and the player headed to the famous rose mansion of James O'Brian after receiving reports about a murder there. They then went inside a room full of red roses and found James' body with a cross in his heart.

Mid-investigation, the team found out that the red roses in the crime scene were bought by James' killer from Javier Morales' flower shop. Later, they saw Javier and his sister, fashion designer Jenna Morales, arguing at the shop as Javier didn't want to give Jenna his roses for free. After gaining enough evidence, the team incarcerated James' wife, Monica O'Brian, for the murder.

Admitting to the murder, Monica revealed that James had some secrets hidden inside the rose mansion that he didn't want Monica to know about. One day, Monica followed James and found him with another mysterious woman, prompting Monica to think that James had cheated on her. Angry at James, Monica had bought a lot of roses from Javier's flower shop and filled the room with them, she then called James to the room, chloroformed him and stabbed him in the chest with a cross. Judge Park sentenced Monica to 25 years in prison.

Post-trial, Ned and the player headed to the morgue to protect James' body in case it was cut by "The Collector", since his killer was sentenced to 25 years in prison. However, they were late as James' body part from his chest downwards was cut. The team then found a bloody ribbon next to the rest of James' body, which turned out to be Javier's flower shop's gift ribbon. They then investigated the flower shop and found a locked diary. After unlocking the diary and found out that it was real estate buyer Amru el-Ismail's one, the team got it to Amelie, who discovered that Amru was "The Collector"'s accomplice who helped them cut James' body. However, Amru refused to tell the team who "The Collector" was as well as the place where the victims' body parts were hidden. The team then locked Amru up.

Meanwhile, the team talked to Monica in prison, asking her to explain further about the mysterious woman she had seen. There, Monica told the team that she had taken a photo of her, however, the picture was so blurry that she had torn it and left it in the rose room's trash can. After finding the picture, the team was able to identify the woman as Jenna Morales. The team then asked Jenna, who said that it was a misunderstanding, as she just wanted to talk to James about borrowing his rose mansion for her latest fashion album's background.

While searching the rose room, the team also found a note, on which (per Amelie) James had written to the rose mansion's gardener Andre Doyle about the real secrets in the rose garden, prompting the team to ask him. When being asked about what the secrets were, Andre was embarrassed and told the team it was nothing. However, after investigating the rose garden, the team found several bags of drug, meaning that James was a drug dealer and Andre had helped him hide the drug bags inside the roses so that everyone couldn't recognize. In the end, the team arrested Andre for his drug dealing.

After all the events, Rosamund informed the team that Amru had escaped and left a sheet of paper to the team, which said "Go to this place and I will tell you all about "The Collector".". After getting it to Trent, the team found out that Amru wanted to meet the team at an abandoned house near the railway station. Leo then came to the police station, saying that Aiden had disappeared.
