—Case Teaser

Spill Your Guts is a case featured in Criminal Case, it appears as the forty-eighth case in Explore the World and the one hundred and sixty-second overall. It takes place in Africa appearing as the first case in the region.


Following Anastasia's murder, the team headed to Abuja as they had reason to believe The Zodiac were continuing Project Enigma there. Connor sent Riya and the player to patrol the city and report anything suspicious. While doing so, the pair heard screaming and rushed to where they sound was coming from, only to find stagehand Philipp Wilder disembowelled and dismembered aboard a rowboat. Nia confirmed that the killer first cut Philipp's throat before dismembering and disembowelling him. They first questioned The Divine Purpose member Keanu Lahela, oarsman Edosio Adebayo, and local woman Akuada Eze before Anya told the team that he'd been able to retrieve the victim's hotel room keys.

After searching the hotel room and finding the murder weapon, they suspected GPA medic Raphael Thornton and tribal leader Adaeze Okafor. They also learned from Imran and Anthony that the killer used chalk. They then received reports that Edosio was attempting to flee the city, prompting the pair to quickly confront him by the Jabi Lake and place him in a holding cell. Finally, they unveiled Akuada as the killer.

Akuada insisted her innocence but once the pair presented the evidence, she confessed, saying Philipp needed to die for his disrespect. Akuada confessed that she welcomed Philipp into the city during his holiday but soon discovered that Philipp was ridiculing Nigerian culture and had been vandalizing sacred objects. The local confessed that a rage like nothing she'd ever felt before came over her and she followed Philipp after nightfall. When his back was turned, she angrily attacked him, slitting his throat. Blinded by fury, Akuada then cut Philipp's dead body open and apart, dumping him in the rowboat and sending him off across the lake. In court, Akuada swore that she had no restraint and that she couldn't control her actions. For the brutal nature of the murder, Akuada was sentenced to thirty-five years in prison by Amanda Prince, as Judge Armstrong had requested some time off.

Post-trial, Spencer told the player and Bradley that Akuada's actions didn't fit her psychological profile, asking the pair to help him retrieve the file he lost. After finding it and analysing it, Spencer decided to organize a brain scan for Akuada. Upon getting her consent, they held the brain scan, discovering that Akuada's brain showed abnormal behaviour in her dorsolateral prefrontal cortex, the part of the brain which controls self-control and restraint. They then asked Akuada if she had done anything out of the normal recently, prompting her to reveal she went for a vaccine injection in Kinshasa.

Meanwhile, Connor requested the player and Riya's help in meeting his boyfriend's, Tristan Wilson, son Steven. After successfully constructing a toy robot with Takagi's help, Connor greeted Steven. Afterwards, Penelope told Connor that they should organize a playdate for Oscar and Steven. Finally, the team reconvened aboard the plane. Concerned that the Zodiac were responsible for Akuada's abnormal behaviour, they set a course to Kinshasa to find out more.
