Plot

The team raced to Cayden Markman's antique shop to confront him about the fingerprints on the stolen jewels. Upon arrival at the shop, Jayden and the player found the body of town local Tara Thompson, sliced in the chest. Per Melissa, it was confirmed that Tara was sliced with a long, sharp object which was later revealed as a sword. The team labelled Cayden as a suspect along with aristocrat Philomena Quill and bellboy Murray Moore before they were told by Sean that somebody was planning to jump off the nearby bridge. After stopping Murray from jumping off the bridge due to Tara's death, the team interrogated and added wilderness survival expert Alaina Wright and Jayden's father Jacob Chase to the suspect list. Soon, they arrested Alaina for the murder.

Alaina confessed to the crime, explaining that she never meant to kill Tara. She explained that she knew Tara had been stealing from the antique shop and on the day of the murder she caught her stealing the sword. In an attempt to stop her, Alaina and Tara got into a scuffle resulting in Alaina slicing Tara open with the sword. Panicked, Alaina fled the scene. Alaina was sentenced to 10 years in prison by Judge Price.

After the trial, Jayden and the player went to interrogate Cayden about his fingerprints on the jewels. The antiquities dealer explained that someone came into his shop, trying to sell the jewels. When asked who it was, Cayden explained that he didn't know as they covered their face. The duo decided to search the shop for anymore evidence into the serial thief and discovered a map with the highway circled. The player and Jayden then went to inform Chief Warren about the next attack's location.

Meanwhile, Shane asked for the player's help in setting up a date for him and his boyfriend, Johnathon Sanderson. He explained that he had hardly seen Jonathon recently due to his hard work at the space station in Southern Savannah. The pair eventually found Shane's plans for the date and accompanied him in inviting Johnathon to the date. At the end of the case, Warren decided that they had to stop "The Highwayman" before anyone else was hurt or worse, telling the player to head to the highway where the next attack was planned.
