Case Background


Velma Harrison, the chief's mother, tries to give information about the Congregation, only to be shot in the head by a crossbow in the process.

The chief of police, Ronald Harrison, went with the player to interrogate his mother, Velma Harrison. Velma decided to give her son and the player some intel about the Congregation, the agency that was secretly the base of Campbell City that wrongly ran the city on graves and blood. She starts by telling the two the leader, only to be shot in the head by a crossbow in the process.

Due to the team's starting of digging deeper into the Congregation, all hell started to break loose and the Dark Era of Campbell City started. In a rather shocking twist of events, the chief and the player were able to incriminate fourth-time suspect and an ex-convict who bailed himself out of jail going by the name of Marshall Cardwell as the murderer of Velma Harrison.

When the chief came to handcuff the leader of a now-broken gang, Marshall refused to go down without a fight. However, he bowed down to the chief when he drowned the ex-convict with proof that he was the murderer. He shockingly revealed that the Soul Stealers, a gang that caused graffiti and arson, were a subsidiary of the Congregation.

He said that ever since the Soul Stealers were dismantled by the player and Everett Winston, he had held a vendetta against the police department of Campbell City. He then decided that he would fulfill his revenge, and that he would do something he had never done: murder. Ever since he was placed in the Campbell City Penitentiary, he had started plotting a murder. He decided that the murder would have to affect someone important of the team. He decided that the magnate for his plot would be the head of the agency, Chief Ronald Harrison.

He knew that the chief's mother, Velma Harrison, was a member of the Congregation, so he chose her as his assassination target. The chief, horrified, wanted to see the disgraced ex-auctioneer be given his just desserts, resulting in him accompanying the player to ship him off to court.

The Honorable Montgomery was shocked to see the ex-CEO of Cardwell Auctioneering put to trial for the third time. The judge then said that he was ready once more to put shame to a murderer with only words and a gavel. He decided that the murder of the mother of the chief of police was justifiable by life in jail with no chance of parole. Judge Montgomery also said that his previous crimes also quantified the victim to be placed in solitary confinement, totaling the verdict to life in jail with solitary confinement and no chance of parole.

After the incarceration of the murderer, nothing too large happened, and not many details were discovered. However, the team gained a new ally, prison warden Arnold Baskin, who said he would help the Campbell City Police Department in their work of unveiling the mask of the Congregation. They were also helped by the father of the chief of police, Blake Harrison, who said he'd look into his wife's work and try to help his son as much as possible from here on out.

Suddenly, a novelist residing in Sandy Hollow named Ross Cummings called the player, saying he knew of a theft to happen in the town. He told the player to come call them if they wanted to learn more. In result, the player went with junior officer Reena Hollingsworth to meet the author for information about the theft.
