The Glaze on the Roll is a case featured in Criminal Case as the eighth of the game. It is the second set in the Jumble Hollow district of New Cresthill.


Mona and the player were taking a break when someone called the police station. The woman on the phone informed them that a murder occurred inside the new Jumble Hollow immigration shelter. The duo left everything and went immediately to the building. When they arrived, they found Alexa Falcon, an Ecuadorian cinnamon roll seller, with her mouth liquefied and bleeding.

Thai restaurant owner, Malee Boonyakiat, taster, Bowen Rice, and Colombian photographer, Jack Warren were considered suspects. Then, while Mona and the player were inspecting the shelter, Rogelio called them with new information related to the victim.

Minow found that Alexa used to sell her pastries in the pocket park near to Mrs. Boonyakiat's restaurant. Luxembourgish dentist, Peyton Brenneis, and Mona's ex-husband, mystery writer Skipper Romanazzi were also added to the suspects' list. Soon, they found out that Bowen suggested to Alexa to spend the night with him receiving money as a lady of the night and that Malee made a flower pot shaped like Falcon's face with malformations because she was technically stealing her ingredients. At the end of the chapter, Officer Tavera arrived at the station demanding explanations about the not-closed shelter.

After a little argument between Mona and Fiona, the duo returned to the shelter to continue with the investigation. They learned that Peyton's clients thought that she and Alexa were working together, so instead of stop eating cinnamon rolls, they changed of dentist because of her bad image. In addition, Jack was mad with her because she left Colombia with his life savings, leaving him heartbroken and indebted; at the same time, Skipper insulted her because he refused to pay her for the interview and a future book based on her immigrating experience. After getting enough evidence, the team arrested Bowen Rice for Alexa Falcon's murder.

He tried to deny his crime, coming to the point that he faked an amnesia attack without succeeding. Alexa accepted Bowen's advances, developing a business relationship. However, the night before the crime, Bowen felt asleep before their intimate moment and when he woke up, his financial advisor called him explaining that all of his money was taken from the bank. Deducing that the responsible was Alexa, he went to confront her in the shelter, she begged him to stay in silence because all of his money was going for her family in Ecuador. In a rage attack, he picked a hand blender, liquefied her mouth and escaped before Malee could discover the corpse. Judge Fraire sentenced him to 50 years in prison.

In the aftermath, the team investigated the shelter, just to found out that Fiona already did it. She rescued several expedients but she left them at the Thai restaurant. One of them was Jack's, which was falsified, so he was taken into custody to avoid a possible escape. On the other side, Skipper asked for help to find his lucky pen, which Evan took advantage to make him speak with Maxwell's help. They discovered that a company was contracting a high number of immigrants, granting them a longer stay, but he only knew that 'The Emperor' was the one in charge. By Nicholas, they learned that Ian Butler was called like that in the fashion world, so the Chief decided to investigate his company to verify the rumors.
