Upon further investigation, the player managed to gather two more suspects: Cathy Richards and Natalie Shaw, two women that held a serious grudge against the victim. Later, when all evidence had been analysed, the team got a call from the killer saying that another person would die if they don't catch him in 1 hour and that he had stolen the rare flower from the underground lab  so Madeline and the player rushed to the previous crime scenes and managed to collect enough evidence to arrest Underwood's killer who turned out to be Cathy Richards.

As the team were approaching Cathy, she could be seen with a twisted smile knowing that she was caught. When they asked her for her motives, Cathy told the team that her plan all along was to become the new ruler of Vindigo Quarry by killing the two people that had more power in the region than her: Nicolas and Lord Underwood. She also said that she wanted to use the radioactive properties of the flower to construct a massive bomb that would destroy the city and afterwards she would be the one to reborn the city from the ashes. She admited asking Conrad to kill Nicolas as she wanted to be the one killing Lord Underwood. When asked why she chose Conrad she informed the team that they dated for years and that Conrad was obsessed with her so he would do anything she asked him to do. The team then ordered Cathy to return the rare flower but she admited that she had already shipped the flower to the person that was gonna build her the bomb, so Madeline asked to know the name of the person but Cathy refused. In court, Judge Cook sentenced her to life in prison.

Afterwards, the team reunited to celebrate their win over Cathy when their car broke down so the team asked Raul for help fixing the cars. In the meantime, the team discovered that Dixie was helping Lord Underwood in his drug operation, so the team ended up arresting her. 

In the end, as the Chief was congratulating the team Mayor Newman entered the room and asked to speak to the player, where he gave the team an invitation for the High Lands Gala that was happening in a couple of weeks. The chief felt it was apropriated as he was about to promote the player to the High Lands .
