The Storm of Evil is a case featured in Criminal Case as the sixty-eighth case of the game. It is the fourteenth case of Berrini and the second case in Radar Hill.

Plot

As the storm raged, Chief Crosby received a call from a local electrician about a murder. He immediately sent the player and Astrid to the house where they discovered the electrocuted body of weather reporter Helena Samuels. They first suspected electrician Cornelius Slade who hated the victim because she accused him of having raped his own wife. They also added the victim’s mother Daisy Samuels who had an argument with the victim because Helena didn’t come to her father’s funeral as well as weather reporter Eliot Ryker who made a viral video of the victim getting angry that nobody told her that her green dress was invisible on the previous week's TV broadcast.

The duo later learned that the victim was seen near a damaged house between the weather new station and the electrician’s office. There, they found clues to add mysterious gentleman Dan Mackellar as it was discovered that he was the victim’s ex-boyfriend due to him having caught her cheating on him multiple times despite all his love for her. They also added Edward’s sister, social worker Ruth Chandler-Jameson as the victim wasted her time by always asking her about everything, annoying the social worker. The team later learned that the damaged house was on the edge of breaking down which would result in evidence being destroyed. After finding enough clues, the duo arrested Eliot for the murder.

Soon after the detectives showed him the evidence, Eliot admitted to the murder saying that the victim had it coming. Eliot then explained that he and the victim were rival reporters in the past. One day she stole one of his news reports and made it her own which made her famous and resulted in Eliot getting fired for not being able to provide a story because of the victim's thievery. When Helena went to visit the electrician for a interview, he followed her. When he realized that Cornelius wasn’t around, he confronted and shoved her into the nearby fusebox and watched as she was being electrocuted. He then had told Helena that she should have never messed around with the incredible Eliot Ryker, weatherman extraordinaire. Faced with the remorseless and egocentric killer, Judge Marrakchi sentenced him to 50 years in prison.

After the trial, Jordan came to the player and asked if he could come with him to the electrician’s office as he wanted to find a way to make a robot work. Cornelius explained that he would teach the tech expert if they would help him find his voltmeter. Soon the duo found a box of equipment, where they found the voltmeter. After giving it back to the electrician, he thanked them and accepted to help Jordan with the robot.

Meanwhile, a panicked Dan came to the station and reported that someone with a Union Army uniform had put a gun to his head near the damaged house. He then explained how he hit the man with a bottle before fleeing to the police station. Luke and the player soon found the broken bottle with traces of blood on it. After analyzing the blood, they discovered it was from a man called Will Fernandez. Upon interrogation, he explained that he didn’t have to say anything to the enemy as it would betray his country. Confused and with no answers, they headed back to the station.

Later, Luke and the player informed the chief of what they have discovered. Worried and intrigued, the chief decided to send them to a known battlefield to try to figure out what was happening in the district.
