Plot

While the team was continuing their search for Luke, Kenny came by with more news saying the yeti was last spotted by some ice caverns. After searching for a while, the player, Zoya and Josiah stumbled across Esmerelda Sanchez, found dead with her eyes gouged out and multiple stab wounds.

The team first began suspecting Isabel's brother and store clerk Palomo Bryant, her step-father business owner Umberto Bryant, and her sister Lucia Bryant. Later on, Isabel herself approached the others, saying she had been in contact with the victim shortly before her death.

Alongside suspecting Isabel, they also suspected her mother, store manager Yara Bryant. Soon afterwards Giovanni and Daisy returned to the station, saying someone opened fire on them. Eventually the team revealed Umberto to be Esmerelda's killer.

At first he simply tried to shrug it off as the police harassing him. But when all the evidence came together, he simply congratulated them. He confirmed he killed Esmerelda, and even fired at the police to keep them away, but refused to go into why. However Isabel then came in, claiming she found drugs in her step-father's office, which confirmed he was moving drugs for the black market. Umberto had no other choice but to confirm it, and when Esmerelda got too close, he slashed at her with the ice ax. As for the whereabouts of Luke, Umberto said he wasn't aware of that, and he refused to say who's running the operation. For his crimes, Judge Blackwell sentenced Umberto to life in prison.

Following the trial, Isabel went with the player to confront her step-father on the market's actions. Like before, he refused to talk, but he ended up letting slip there was important info in his safe. A quick examination of the shop revealed he had details of their drug trading routes. Yara was saddened at her husband's actions, hoping it wouldn't tear her family apart, and she swore she wouldn't bother the police ever again.

After passing the last of the victim's info to her associate, Samuel Woods, the team needed to put their efforts into finding Luke and rescuing him from the Warrenville Yeti, before anyone else gets taken or hurt.
