Characters Introduced

Case Background

The victim was Herman Yoth. He was found his skull smashed in the perfume shop of a shopping mall called Newville I, where he owned a candy shop. The team happened to be there before 6:00 a.m. as the Chief told them to go there because a thief had tried to break in.

The killer was an employee of the perfume shop called Valerie Bade. When all the shops were closing, Herman was trying to seduce Valerie. She didn't want to be with him, so she was trying to protect herself. Herman was still pretending her to kiss him, but Valerie hit him in the head with a cash register. As a result, he died. As she wasn't expecting that to happen, she carried him to her shop and left him there. She got back home and then the team discovered the body. Valerie said that Herman didn't love her and only stalked her. She had carried the cash register to hit him in case he needed to defend herself, but her intentions never were to kill him.

At the trial, Judge Gonzalez said that she'd acted in self-defense, but there was no need to hit him in the head with such an object. She also carried the corpse with her and hid the murder weapon. For her crimes, she was sentenced to 10 years and 6 months in jail with parole in 5 years.
