—Case Teaser

The Weight of Justice is a case featured in Criminal Case as the eleventh case of the season. It is featured as the fifth case set in the Cascade Cove district of Aurelia.


On the search for Eddie Jenkins around a series of ancient ruins, the player and Silvano heard a heavy crash coming from below. When they discovered a hidden hideout underground, they soon discovered Eddie crushed beneath a pillar. Dominic immediately confirmed the stone pillar was used to crush Eddie, fracturing his spine in the process. They then suspected victim’s friend Abner Bramwell, street performer Stu the Spectacular and Italian cafe owner Adelaisa Grimaldi. Cal then helped them by giving them a new scene to investigate as the victim often went to the local gym, where they suspected athlete Rocky Harpness. They also interrogated Ricky Harris before they found out the victim was about to head out on his trip when he was interrupted by the killer.

Despite the team’s suspicions on Ricky, thief Abner Bramwell was arrested for the murder. Abner confessed to crushing Eddie under a pillar since he discovered the truth about Eddie. Confused, Silvano questioned the killer to which he explained that he had discovered that Eddie planned to steal the fortune all for himself when they found it. Abner explained that he needed the money to pay for his mother’s medical bills and that he had no choice but to kill Eddie. He told the duo how he waited until Eddie was standing in front of the pillar before pushing it over and killing him within seconds. Judge Rodriguez then gave Abner 21 years in prison for the premeditated murder.

After the trial, the player spoke to Abner again, who said that Eddie left behind a box at the hideout, where they found a key with a tag noting a location of a locked storage box that the key was for on the coastal boulevard. Inside the storage box they found the map and had it analysed by Ruth. Following the end of the case, Florence informed the rest of the team that the map had been stolen, presumably by one of the two pirate crews and they needed to get to the lost treasure's location immediately before bloodshed begun.
