The Death of a Hero is a case featured in Criminal Case as the one-hundred and eightieth case of the game. It is the sixty-fifth and the penultimate case of The Mystery, as well as the seventh case in Horizon Station.


After discovering more on the Gaulstone Cult’s plans to weaken the city, Diana and the player headed out to stop The Beast and The Wind. However, as Diana and the player wandered through a quiet woodland, the duo was horrified to discover the body of army soldier and Major’s cousin Justin Redmoon, crushed under a boulder and his head bashed in. Ethan then revealed that the killer had crushed Justin’s legs first, before bashing his head in. Diana and the player then investigated, discovering clues to add army sergeant Gustavo Vargas, elderly lady Celestine Riddington (who insisted on giving Major a cookie) and the victim’s girlfriend, nurse Fleur Barton in the murder. They were then looking over the case when a bruised Diego told them that he had found a bunker. When Diana asked him about the bruises, he then confessed that he had found Kendra inside the bunker and knocked her out in a fight.

After Major and the player arrived at the bunker with Diana and Diego, an awakened Kendra suddenly attacked Major with a concealed blade stained with blood before Diego helped his brother to overpower their aunt. The brother duo then successfully handcuffed her before adding her as a suspect as well as Maxwell’s fiancé, investigative reporter Joseph Marlow and historian Mathis Pat to the roster. They then discovered that Gustavo had told the victim that his kindness would get him killed in a war and that, while drunk once, Justin had tried to get Fleur into bed without her full approval, which he wouldn’t stop apologizing for due to his guilt and remorse. Later at the station, they were informed that one of their suspects weren’t who they seemed to be.

Erika then revealed that Celestine was a secret agent who worked for the FBI in the early 1970s up to the late 1990s before retiring. Celestine then revealed that she had been assigned to investigate criminal affairs related to criminal syndicates before the player and Diana continued their investigation. They then reinvestigated the secret bunker, discovering that Kendra had disowned her son after he refused to help her following her arrest. They also found out that Mathis had a brief debate about military history with the victim, which caused Joseph to feel like he was being pulled apart by the unnecessary debate. However, Joseph confessed that Mathis and Justin had reconciled the day before the murder. In the end, the player and Diana finally found enough evidence to incriminate the hero’s killer as Joseph.

After they discovered Joseph guilty of the homicide, a disbelieving Diana then confronted Joseph with the player, demanding him to answer why he would betray the team and his husband. Joseph denied the accusations against him, telling them that he wouldn’t commit murder. However, after Diana confronted Joseph with the evidence against him, the journalist then sighed as tears started to leak from his eyes, before he then admitted to the murder. He then revealed that he was the Wind and that he only helped the cult to create a better world. However, he started to feel guilt after seeing what the cult was doing to innocent people, as seen in José Luis Gaspar’s arrest, and he attempted to step out of the Cult. However, the Alpha told him that if he tried to quit, they would expose him to the police as a traitor. Not wanting to hurt his husband’s feelings, the journalist then continued to be the Alpha’s puppet, helping them with their plans for Rosenoque. When Diana confronted him about the Alpha’s identity, Joseph told them that he couldn’t say, for Maxwell’s safety, before he pulled out a remote and pressed a button, causing an explosion. He then triggered a smoke bomb and fled the scene, before Diana and the player headed to the scene of the explosion, where they found Maxwell injured, next to Kendra’s blasted cell. Diana then got Maxwell to the hospital, while Chief Tempest swore that they would find Joseph and Kendra, and bring them to justice.

After Joseph had evaded arrest following his assistance in breaking the Beast out of custody, Diego then came to Major and the player, vowing to help them find Kendra. The trio then headed to the forest clearing to search for Kendra. They then found her pen blade in the bushes, meaning she was nearby. After Joshua confirmed that the pen blade was Kendra’s and that she could hiding out at the temple where Marcus was brutally murdered, they then confronted her at the temple. After Kendra saw them, she belittled them on betraying their own flesh and blood, telling them that they would have been perfect members if they simply accepted their gift. As Diego was about to open his mouth, Major suddenly snapped and told their murderous aunt that if the cult was a family, then he wished he would never have joined it. He continued saying how it simply broke their family apart and brought layers of horrors upon horrors, staining the Redmoon family legacy forever. A smirking Kendra then told them that what she was going to do, was that she would make sure it never happened as she pulled out a gun, trying to shoot her nephews.

As the gun fight amplified further with Major and Diego shooting at their aunt only to miss, they suddenly heard some kind of cannon fire as a metal plate flew by, injuring the twisted woman. With Kendra distracted, Major quickly sneaked closer as the player were able to see Janice, Jacob and Joshua using one of Jacob’s compressed weapons to shoot objects to distract the Beast. As soon as Major went behind her to strike, she quickly turned around and blocked his attack, smirking evily as she took a blade and started attacking the senior detective. Diego then quickly ran to them before he was also blocked by Kendra who started fighting both of them at the same time with no way to injure her. Janice, who wanted to take revenge on the twisted woman for her brother’s demise, quickly inserted a chess piece in the device and shot, hitting her target in the arm. With their aunt distracted and injured, the Redmoon siblings quickly apprehended her and handcuffed her more tightly than any other criminal they had arrested. The brother duo then told her that this time, it was over before they told her if she would to try and escape, they wouldn’t hesitate to shoot her down.

After Kendra was finally arrested, hopefully for good, they then took her to Judge Brighton, who declared that Kendra was to be put in a padded cell in solitary confinement for the time being until the Alpha was taken down. The detectives then headed to Kendra’s secret bunker, where they were able to discover a hologram that showed a map of the city. Erika then revealed that the hologram had confirmed geographical coordinates of the Gaulstone Cult’s headquarters which was revealed to be a glimmering dome laboratory, where the Alpha was most likely hiding out with their ultimate plan to control Rosenoque.

Meanwhile, Fleur came to the player and Diana, telling them that she had been tending to Maxwell and that she remembered that Justin was looking into rumors that had sparked up following the “Jordan Brown being alive” theories, due to Tristan Flanders murdering convict Noah Wilton. She then told them that she wanted them to put an end to Justin’s final investigation and stop the Jordan Brown rumours, and allowed them to investigate their residence to do so. Diana and the player then headed to the Redmoon-Barton residence, where they were able to find Justin’s faded notes. They then dusted the notes, soon discovering that there was an incomplete DNA test of Jordan Brown in his notes. They then sent the incomplete DNA test to Janice, who told them that she had a theory that she investigated and she was able to confirm to them that Tristan and Jordan Brown were related genetically as brothers. They then confronted Tristan, who confessed that he had discovered his relationship to Jordan a couple years ago. He then met the convict in prison, where they quickly bonded and built a relationship, sharing their belief that the city and the world deserved to be under control of a powerful regime, with improved living and zero crime rates. Tristan then followed his brother’s schemes, helping him find Francisco’s old connections to the Gaulstone Cult and putting it together, like a big puzzle. He then discovered that, following the death of Jordan, that their brother had turned on them. Tristan then followed Noah for months, before the Cult asked him to use the cowboy for killing Woody. Tristan then told them how he did so, before murdering the traitor under Jordan’s aliases to frighten the team.

After all the events, Diego and Major were discussing the last day of chaotic events when Jacob came to them, telling them that Diana had fled the station and gone missing after she heard about Tristan’s connections to her ex-boyfriend. With their knowledge of where the Alpha’s grand dome laboratory was, Diego then told the player and his friends on the team that they were close to the end and that he was prepared to face the end, to save Rosenoque from the nightmare that was created by his family. With those motivating words at heart, Major and the player then headed to the Gaulstone Cult’s dome laboratory, determined to put an end to the Gaulstone Cult, once and for all...
