—Case Teaser

The Evil In Me is a case featured in Criminal Case as the ninety-third case of the game. It is the thirty-ninth case of Berrini and the third case in Maple Highs.


While Astrid and the player were talking about how Luke seemed to feel better after the events of Shadow Corner, they were informed about the report of gunshots being heard from a cabin. There, the duo soon found the body of local hunter Frederiko Mackenzie, two bullet wounds in his chest. Per Beatriz, the killer shot him point blank, not in the heart, but in the lung which caused him to slowly bleed out to death. They first suspected fellow hunter Alexandro Tentron after it was discovered that he had sent a death threat to the victim. They also added the victim's sister, Rachel Mackenzie, as her brother had ruined her marriage by bringing a gun and nearly killing her fiancé. To the team's surprise, they also had to add Luke's recently arrived father, businessman Florent Leon-Mathieu, as it was discovered that Frederiko had tried to put him in jail by selling him several illegal items.

Later, Mei came to them to explain that a fight had broke out in a nearby village between Nikolai and a villager. After stopping the consultant from getting himself into trouble, the duo added the town mayor Samuel Huberton as the mayor had found out that the victim was in fact illegally hunting on illegal lands. They also suspected criminologist Dan Mackellar who couldn't believe the man was ignoring everyone's advice to not shoot every moving thing, which led to Dan nearly being shot on a walk in the woods. Later on, someone reported explosions coming from the town square which were revealed to be Rachel igniting some firecrackers. After stopping her from causing panic, the player found enough evidence to arrest Alexandro for the murder.

Upon being accused, Alexandro refused to admit to the murder as he told them that he hadn't done it. But when Astrid asked him if he killed the victim for some land, he snapped and said that Frederiko should have never dishonored the deceased. The hunter then admitted to the murder and explained that Frederiko was a manipulating liar and had used his own friends to hunt down a bear from an old hunter's legend. When Astrid asked why he killed Frederiko, Alexandro said that their three friends had died and that one of them was his younger brother. When the victim found them and their dead bodies, he just took the dead bear's head and left the bodies to rot. After having seen the whole scene hidden behind a tree, Alexandro decided that he would take revenge. A few days later, he took action and killed Frederiko for his crimes. After being sent to trial, Judge Marrakchi sentenced him to 45 years in prison.

After the trial, a off-duty Luke came to the station and asked the duo if it was true that they had met his father, which Astrid confirmed. Understanding, the worried senior detective told the player and Astrid that his father had dropped a strange briefcase at the town square saying that it was for an anonymous client from another. Although it was clear Luke knew nothing about the transaction, he came with them to the town where they found the locked briefcase. When unlocked, they found it filled with maple syrup samples that (per Edward) was revealed to contain drugs that would make the consumers addicted. Horrified, Luke told them that his father had just left town for a business and that he would be back in at least a week! Although Chief Crosby would have wanted Luke to stay out of the investigation, Luke said that he could go see his father and see if he could find out more about his father's business, which the team agreed. Luke then wished them luck and left the station to prepare for his trip.

Meanwhile, Raj informed the player that Dan wanted to see them. After seeing him, the criminologist explained that he had brought files about the Cedar family as he had noticed strange behavior from them. However he had lost them in the woods due to a group of kids and their prank on him. Soon Raj and the player found the faded files that revealed information on multiple members of the family. Raj concluded that whatever the family was connected to, it wasn't good at all due to the fact some of them had completely changed their routines. After thanking Dan for his help, the duo went to inform the chief about their recent discoveries.

Later on, the team bidded Luke farewell on his trip before he departed to spend time with his father. Then Jordan Charleston informed the team that he had found some kind of signal from an underground building in a forest of maple trees. This led them to decide that they would investigate the maple forests to find any evidence of this supposed secret place.
