—Case Teaser

Taking An Action is a case featured in Criminal Case as the forty-fourth case of the game. It is the forty-fourth case of Rosenoque and also the fifth case in Capitol Valley.


Soon, an excited Jordan Brown was about to head to the pride parade when Thomas Ernest told Major Lucas and the player of a murder that took place inside the town hall, which irritated Jordan. There the two detectives found the body of the mayor's chief of staff Ryan Mason dead with a letter opener puncturing his throat. They soon suspected investigator Akira Hayashi, transgender rights protestant Justin Rashad and civil rights defendant, as well Daniel's girlfriend, Jessica Montana. After they found the protest HQ for the pride rights protesters, they suspected gay foreign officer Michael McKenzie-Petrov and gay rights protestor Tyler Hopkins. After they found out that Michael had attempted to arrest Jessica after she had accidentally thrown a piece of cake in his face. Soon the killer was revealed as transgender rights protester Justin Rashad.

Justin explained that the victim had made him fall in love with him before Ryan had told him that he disliked gay people, transgender people and especially traggots, a slang for gay transgenders. Realizing that he had fallen for a guy who hated him much more than loved, Justin took his regrets and grievances out on Ryan by going to Town Hall and puncturing his throat with Ryan's own letter opener. He explained that he regretted it soon after but he knew that no one would have been hurt by the victim's feelings ever again. Judge Brighton comforted the murderer and then gave him a 10 year sentence with a chance for parole in 5 years.

In the aftermath, Jessica told Major and Jordan that Daniel had broke up to her. Jessica then asked for help finding her locket that Daniel had gifted her. They helped her by finding it and restoring it to mint condition. She thanked them and then went to attend the pride festival. Meanwhile Jordan asked for help so he could set up something to make Daniel feel better after the breakup. After the player helped Jordan, they found Daniel, who thanked Jordan and the player but said that he needed more time to recover before dating again. A heartbroken Jordan then accepted the truth and left his gifts in Daniel's hands.

After the events, Major excitedly told the player that Mayor Oakley recently announced a statue burning ceremony for the following week to celebrate Halloween.
