The Tiger in the Fire is the second case in the city of Arlington Heights, created by DiebytheSword. As a result, it is also the second case in the first district, Poinsettia Point.

Case Background

As of the last case, the team found out that they had to go to the zoo. When they went to the zoo, they found the local tiger, Le Tigre, burning in his glass exhibition. After the firefighters came to the rescue, they unfortunately found the tiger dead. Soon, the murder weapon was revealed to be gasoline, and not too long after that, his killer was shockingly revealed to be the owner of the zoo, Travis Kramer.

When Travis was confronted, he confessed immediately that he burnt down the tiger for the tiger's sake. He said that people would often smoke near the tiger and that the area near it was polluted. The tiger was to die soon. Travis had often tried to relocate the poor feline. However, no place would take it in. Travis tried once more, only to be threatened that he would be fired if he tried to relocate it. Sympathizing for the tiger, a person called "the Red Petal" emailed Travis, telling him that burning the tiger would be the best for it. Travis listened to this person. Darren, shocked sent the zoo owner to Judge Richter. The judge angry due to animal abuse, knew that Travis was somehow manipulated, sentencing him to 15 years of jail.

After his arrest, not much had happened. The team talked to Holden Kavanaugh, botanist, again about the serial killer called "the Red Petal". Holden had told the two investigators that the serial killer would often slay people who were affiliated with plants and botany. Because of that, the team offered Holden protection. They also talked to baker Karen Dixon about graffiti from aforementioned the serial killer. Karen was happy to have received the team's help.

The chief of the Arlington Heights Police Department, Shirley Hartnell, informed the player that there a robbery had taken place at the bank near te Poinsettia Plaza. Shirley told the player to drive to the bank, where they would meet Shannon Davenport, who would help the player place the thief behind bars.
