—Case Teaser

Skin of My Teeth is a case featured in Criminal Case, it appears as the ninth case in Rusthollow and the sixty-third overall. It takes place in Emerald Lagoon appearing as the third case in the district.


The player and Faith received word that a body had been found in a fight club in town. Upon arrival the scene, fighter Terry Topolo was found without blood leaking from his mouth and his face partially skinned.

During the first chapter, professional fighter Aiden Addams was interrogated along with the victim's girlfriend Natalie Rein and creepy fan Blaine Handel. The second chapter saw private investigator Jackson Sharp and landowner Erik Cosgove interrogated.

It was soon discovered that Jackson was investigating the fight club and Terry was his informant. A devastated Natalie also revealed that Terry used to be violent towards her and would often not allow her out of the house. Blaine was revealed to have been creating creepy posters and shrines for Terry and Erik was angered after Terry lost a fight he had placed bets on, causing him to lose a large amount of money. Erik was soon arrested for the brutal murder.

Erik confessed quickly and explained that Terry had only lost the fight he placed money on because he was high on drugs. Enraged at Terry, he snuck into the fight club at night and smashed his teeth out with an ashtray as payback. Realising that Terry could press charges for assault, he knocked him out and skinned his face. Disgusted by the psychopathic killer, Judge Price sentenced Erik to life imprisonment with no chance of parole.

After the trial, the team received word that someone had attempted to light the park on fire before fleeing the scene. Upon searching the area, Jayden and the player found a gasoline canister. Per Shane, it was discovered that the symbol found on the side of the canister was worn by employees of a new restaurant named "The Lagoon Creature". The duo then proceeded to confront Percy Matthews, owner of the restaurant, who explained he knew nothing of an arsonist group.

Aiden also entered the station battered and bruised wanting to file a complaint against one of the workers. When asked what had happened, he explained that Sean had beaten up in the fight club. Eventually, the pair found Sean who confessed that Aiden had challenged him to a fight and was sure he would win until Sean beat him up. Warren was furious at Sean for beating someone up and told him he was dismissed for the time being. After calming down he ordered the player to go "The Lagoon Creature" and investigate further.
