—Case Teaser

Tastes Like Chicken is a case featured in Criminal Case where it appears as the forty-fourth case in Sinner's Enigma. It takes place as the second case in the Sin Capitol district of Evergrace.


On a bright day, Katelyn and the player were discussing the assassin using others to commit crimes before they received a call from a local restaurant. They then headed to a local restaurant and entered the kitchen to find a rotisserie with the body of Irish businessman Gabriel O'Callaghan roasted and half-eaten. They then suspected the cook of the kitchen, Ciara Murphy, the owner of the restaurant and community leader Tyler O'Sharp, local homeless man and homeless camp leader Judd Garant and the grieving daughter of the late Mayor Dave Whiston, Alissa Whiston, in the murder. Jason had mysteriously not appeared that morning, so Seamus and Sophia carried on the autopsy, telling the detectives that the victim's heart was missing and confirming that the victim was eaten by a cannibal murderer. They then recapped their investigation before Alissa came in screaming, telling them that she was sure someone slipped a human heart into her purse!

They investigated the local butcher to find the still beating heart in her purse, where Seamus confirmed that the heart was mangled and forcefully torn out of by a butcher's cleaver. Katelyn and the player investigated the deli where they discover Jason's glasses, ultimately forcing the team to suspect him. However, Jason denied to inform us of his whereabouts before the murder, feeling embarrassed he let the team down. They also discovered a photo of an unfamiliar gothic woman. Through further analysis, the team suspected Nicole Ashworth, the previously suspected hotel owner from Vexation Woods. While discussing their new discoveries, Ciara telegraphed the player, saying that Jason was trying to vandalize the deli. They then confronted Jason, who confessed that he was looking for a prized possession that the victim had stolen from him in the deli. They also discover a sack of coals that were used to roast the victim alive before they then discovered motives and evidence to incriminate Judd as the killer.

They then confronted the homeless man about the crime, in which Judd denied the accusations against him before he cracked and confessed to the murder. He then told them that he was angry at the victim for being irresponsible and careless, saying that the victim stopped helping the homeless community after Mayor Monaco's rise to power. He and the other homeless campers then started to starve and plead to others for food to nourish their starving bodies. However when Judd saw the victim walking into the restaurant, he followed Gabriel to find it alone, except for his and the victim's presences. He then confronted the businessman, who told the homeless man that he couldn't afford it anymore, which only angered Judd more. Judd then explained how his subconscious snapped and he attacked the victim, knocking him unconscious before he dragged the victim's body to the kitchen. Hungry and full of rage, he then roasted Gabriel over an open fire before eating the businessman alive. Disgusted by the heinous crime, Katelyn then told Judd that the victim was indeed unable to afford taking care of the homeless community due to a collapse in the economy before arresting him for his crimes. Judge Dosett then sentenced Judd to a lifetime sentence in Blackwater Asylum in solitary confinement with mandatory psychological counselling. Soon after, Katelyn told the player she wanted to look into how the city was affected since the Mayor's rise to power.

Soon after, Jason came to inform that Alissa had been shot at the town square and that he had taken her to his office to tend to her injuries. The player and Cameron then headed to the town square, where they found a bullet inside some bloodstained bushes and sent it to Camilla, who confirmed that the bullet was the same used in the former Chief's attempted assassination, meaning the same attacker could've attacked Alissa. They then questioned Alissa, who told them that she recently got a threatening message. They then returned to the town square and found the threatening message with a heptagram etched at the top. They then discovered that the message said that not all sinners deserved freedom and salvation in a new world. They then informed Chief Sinnett that there could be an assassin working to murder public officials and well known people connected to sins in a way.

Meanwhile, Katelyn and the player went to see Tyler and asked him more about how Mayor Monaco's rule was affecting the city and its economy. Tyler then told them that ever since the mayor took his place following his predecessor's passing, the economy started to decline and the stock markets started to collapse. Convinced it was from the Mayor's doing in order to make the city bend to his rule, he had started compiling a series of papers to prove his beliefs. They then headed back to the butcher and collected the papers from Tyler's briefcase before they sent it to Skylar, who confirmed Tyler's evidence. She then told them that she had reluctantly connected to her aunt, Isabel Lannuzzi and asked her to help the team do a private investigation into the Mayor's affairs without Jay knowing. Isabel then told them that she would help them, but they needed to investigate into Jay's past, starting at the local courthouse.

With an assassin on the loose and a plan to investigate the Mayor's past, Chief Sinnett then tasked Cameron and the player to head to the local courthouse to compile evidence on the Mayor's possible intentions to take over Evergrace under an iron fist.
