After the end of the last case, the player and Linda attempt to find Theo. You head up to where the festival preparations are taking place. Linda decides to investigate Theo's tent. After you investigate the scene you find Theo Ryans dead, lying on a wooden table, a stab wound to his chest. At first Linda starts tearing up but pulls herself together to solve his murder. Theo's autopsy shows he was killed by a single stab to the abdomen and then died of blood loss.

In Chapter 1, three people were suspected of murder: Deliah Vertuna after a picture of her with Theo was found, Mayor Elisa Chiles after it was discovered she was paying Theo large sums of money and Oliver Salberto because he wrote a threat letter to Theo. At the end of Chapter 1 Chief Ramone announced that Linda was not allowed to work on this case and the player would be partnered with Malcolm Hia.


Elisa Chiles' office entrance

During Chapter 2, two new suspects were discovered them being Lupita Sinclair (she had attended the festival) and Christian Henderson (a pack of his cigarettes was found on the crime scene).

The killer turned out to be Oliver Salberto. He killed Theo as he he had discovered Oliver was going to use the festival as a cover to sell illegal weapons to a crime gang of Starlight Shores so he could earn some money. Theo was going to tell Linda at their lunch date but was killed before he could arrive. Oliver was sentenced to 50 years in prison with no chance of parole.

In the Additional Investigation, Lupita Sinclair came forward and said she had a bad feeling about where all the money she raised was going. She told the team that she pays the charity money to Elisa Chiles, who then forwards it to various charities around the world. The team went to look at Mayor Chiles' office and they discovered her secretaries computer. Alice then confirmed that Elisa and Lily Kelly were stealing government money to spend for themselves. The player and Linda arrested both of them for corruption.

At the end of the case, Chief Ramone announced that you and Linda would be relocated to a new district, Central City. The Chief said that after Mayor Chiles was arrested a new election would be taking place in Central City and he wants the player to oversee it runs smoothly. The player was then told to meet mayoral candidate Vivienne Bird's head of security at the Starlight Shores railway.
