The Mystery of North Woods (Case #2) is the second fanmade case as well as being the second case of Campbell City and the Big Rock district by Tuttifruttichaitea.

Case Background

The team was told on the phone that there was a corpse at the North Woods High School, founded by Brendan Horton. Since Reena's vacation at Palm Beach had ended, the Chief wanted them to partner up for a case.

The victim's ID proved that the victim was a certain Johanna Black, who was a historian. Later in the case, with the help of a notorious hacker going by the name of Dominic Gardiner, the team learned that she was secretly also a professional hacker. 

Johanna's killer was later revealed to be one of the descendants of Brendan Horton and the victim's psychiatrist, Aria Horton. At first, Aria said that she never killed Johanna, but once Reena and the player showed the evidence, in which through that act, Aria confessed to the crime.

Johanna would hack everyone she knew, and Aria was an unfortunate victim of the hacker. In a shocking twist of events, Aria said that she was the illegitimate child of the Man Behind the Mask's brother and knew who the infamous serial killer was. She even tried to get the victim to use a pill prescription that caused memory loss, depression, and thoughts of suicide. Johanna was shockingly able to figure who the serial killer was, and to protect her relative, she beat up and strangled Johanna with a piano wire from her condominium.

The Honorable Montgomery said that doctors were supposed to make their patients' lives better, not to slay their patients. The judge gave Aria one final chance to reveal the identity of the serial killer she vouched for was, but again she refused, giving her a sentence of life in jail with no chance of parole and her psychiatrist license being removed. 

The team was able to arrest two members of the Soul Stealers. By finding, a bomb in the Brendan Horton High School, the serial number was used by the team to incriminate the victim's neighbor, Garrett Merriweather, as the one who had burned the high school down. They were also able to determine that the businessman of a phone company and the victim's lover was a Soul Stealer by a hefty sum he paid for "arson supplies", who happened to be named Ryan Cassidy

The team also met a historian named Courtney Sandler. From Courtney, Reena and the player learned that the notorious murderer known as "The Man Behind the Mask" removed random body parts from people and Courtney said she was determined to find out why, even if she had to hang out with shadier people like the aforementioned hacker, Dominic Gardiner.

Reena then said she was overjoyed to have completed her first case with the player. She then revealed that she and the player would soon enjoy a picnic at one of Big Rock's most beautiful lakes, which led to the events of the next case.
