Case Background

After being promoted to the Cultural Center, the team remembered Elena Smith's story. Alan Smith's wife had burnt herself to death after his birthday ten years prior to the current storyline. This was the reason behind the Chief's sadness every year on his birthday. Some days passed and Alan's birthday finally arrived. He didn't want to talk about Elena so he asked the player and Evan Day to make sure everything was ok at the museum where Artclan's art exposition was being held.

At the museum, a woman called Tiffany Granell said that she'd seen a painting with stains of blood. The team investigated this issue, and it traced them to a mystery of a broken sculpture also bloodstained. It was all about a murder case, with a man called Simon Dualdare as the victim. A musician called Kate Lynn told the team that if they wanted to claim justice, they shouldn't talk to Bryan Stefode to avoid getting in danger.

The true killer was arrested and it turned out to be a tourist called Dennis Holghe. He killed Simon because he had cheated on him by giving him a fake check pretending he was lending him money. Dennis was sentenced to 30 years in jail without a chance for parole.

The day after the case, one of the suspects who is also the CEO of a company called Right Art (Roger Ment), said he needed help to find a note he had lost at the museum. Evan and the player found it and on it, there was a name and two phone numbers. The name was "Czsef Pfogubt", which made Evan wonder if he was foreign or if it was even a real name. He called Lindsey Vain and she said that there was nobody called Czsef Pfogubt in their database, and that the two phone numbers didn't exist either. This made the team wonder who was this Czsef man and what was Roger going to do with him, though he said he just wanted to buy some goods from him for his factory.

Exactly four days later after that, Chief Smith appeared and asked the player to solve Elena's suicide case from ten years ago.
