—Case Teaser

Steal One's Thunder is a case featured in Criminal Case as the fifteenth case of the season. It is featured as the third case set in the Utopian Peaks district of Aurelia.


The player and Silvano were in the offices one day when Silvano suggested that they go out for a walk to the glass domes they had in a corner of the city. However as the duo walked by TechLife’s glass dome, they heard an agonizing screech, which led them to find entrepreneur Angelica Zzas electrocuted to death. They then went to suspect hippie Andy Burke, food seller Sylvia McDonald and fellow entrepreneur Gertrude Scott. It wasn’t long before Callum reported that someone broke into TechLife’s technical electronic laboratory, where they talked to bodyguard Jason Ashton. They also suspected rapper Michelangelo before finding out that Gertrude was the one who assembled and owned the murder weapon, an electric charge weapon. They later learned that Cal got burned after being attacked by the killer with a taser. Despite the trouble, the killer was revealed as Andy Burke.

Andy confessed to the crime, explaining that he needed to murder Angelina before she could reveal the truth. Confused, Andy was asked what he meant by that. The hippie confessed that one night he had drugged Angelina’s drink, causing her to fall unconscious. He then proceeded to take advantage of the unconscious woman. In order to shut her up so she wouldn’t tell anyone, he electrocuted her to death. Horrified, the duo sent him to trial. He was sentenced to life imprisonment with mandatory counselling sessions by Evelyn Rodriguez.

After the trial, Silvano and the player returned to see Jason Ashton, who told them that he found a bracelet that belonged to one of the victims. They soon found it and determined that someone was indeed kidnapping people around the district. They reported to Florence who told them to keep an eye out for any leads. After the team helped Gertrude retrieve her torn blueprints, the team then continued to scour for any further clues.
