—Case Teaser

The Wicked Witch of the East is a case featured in Criminal Case as the twenty-first case of the game. It is the twenty-first case of Rosenoque and also the first case in Gaulstone.


Arriving in Gaulstone, following the disappearance of many furries, including Major Lucas's brother Diego Redmoon, Leigh Tempest and the player decided to head to the town square. There the detectives found the poisoned body of museum owner Ashley Auburn slumped on a statue pedestal. Later they got lost in a fog, only to discover a herbalist's hut. Later they found out one of their suspects, historian Thomas Lawson, were lying about their identity. They then found the killer who was revealed to be mad woman Sandra Ortega.

Sandra madly denied involvement but when Leigh gave evidence against her, she was forced to confess. Sandra had said that the victim believed that she was cursed with herbalist Augustine Blake's "witchy knowledge". Despite ignorance about the victim's taunts, she snapped when she realized that the victim was her long lost daughter. She then decided to kill her daughter via a poisonous plant, in hopes that Augustine would be blamed. Sandra then blinded Leigh by throwing ashes in her face and attempted to flee. Major then caught her in the forest before sending Sandra to trial. Judge Brighton was disgusted at Sandra's crime, but knowing her clear insanity, she ordered a life sentence in a psychological hospital for the criminally insane.

Shortly after the trial, Major then had found the furries. He then said that his brother was nowhere to be seen. However, Chief Ernest insisted that Major should not be involved in Diego's case, making Jordan take over as he was suspicious of Diego's sudden actions. After obtaining information and ingredients from Augustine and her apprentice Darina Lombardi, they were be able to, with Janice's assistance, make a cure and convince Penelope Stone to let them help the furries.

Meanwhile, Jordan and the player found Diego's wallet in the town square. They found a damaged photo that Jordan restored to reveal a photo of a satanic cult's symbol etched into a tree trunk. They then asked Armand about the cult, who told them that the cult believed in supernaturalism, sacrifice and often made deals in exchange for allegiance. Jordan then joined Major to update him on their findings. Major said that he had not realized that things had changed since he left to join the police department.

With Summer's chapter ending and Major's chapter now opening with his brother's disappearance, Chief Ernest suggested they take a break by visiting the local zoo.
