—Case Teaser

To Push Up the Daisies is a case featured in Criminal Case as the forty-ninth case of Stonemoor and the one-hundred and ninth overall. It is featured as the first case set in Granite Meadow.


After the team found out about the criminal kingpin that was operating from the shadows in the city of Stonemoor, Chief Flanagan told Spencer and the player to investigate further into the criminal kingpin. After the duo walked through the meadow, they found the body of animal ranger Angeline Sebring, who was suffocated to death. Alexandre was able to confirm that the victim was suffocated by dirt that was force-fed into her throat, causing asphyxiation. They then suspected animal ranger and community leader Alexandro Moon in the murder before they found clues to suspect florist Cynthia McLaughlin and chemical control officer Michael McKenzie-Romanov. They then learned of a disturbance in the steakhouse from Valentina, who insisted that a fight had erupted.

Spencer and the player hurried to the steakhouse to stop the fight, only for Spencer to be hit in the face by a steak. They then confronted the steak thrower, cyclist Kiki Chamberlain, who insisted she was letting out her anger after being told she couldn't cycle through the woods anymore by Angeline as she was disturbing the wildlife. They also questioned hunter Samson Mortaxe who Angeline had fined for hunting wild animals. Emilio then informed the team that Fleur had slipped off the riverbanks and was being washed down stream. The team rushed to the stream and rescued Fleur, who thanked the team before heading back to the precinct with Todrick. After uncovering the remaining motives, they arrested Cynthia in the murder.

After they discovered Cynthia to be guilty of the murder, they then confronted the florist in the murder. She then denied the accusations till she cracked and confessed to the murder. She then revealed that she hated Angeline for being an animal murderer, which prompted Spencer to ask her what the murderer meant. Cynthia then explained that the victim was not a true animal ranger and that she had found proof that Angeline was killing animals in Granite Meadow in order to sell what she could sell off the animal corpses. Wanting the bloodshed to stop and keep the harmony of Granite Meadow beautiful and wondrous, Cynthia then confronted Angeline, who attempted to attack her to silence her about the animal killings. However Cynthia defended herself and struck the victim with a rock before force feeding the victim with dirt, killing her. Cynthia then was sent to trial where she was given a 25 year sentence in prison for the murder by Judge South.

After the trial, the player and April were informed by Samson that he had discovered a dead body in the same meadow where Angeline was killed. They then hurried to the meadow where they found a dead man who was shot in the heart. They then sent the body to Alexandre, who told them that the victim was shot point blank in the heart and he found a broken card in the man's pocket. The player then restored the card which revealed the man to be a steakhouse worker named Deklan Tremaine. They then investigated the steakhouse where they found the victim's phone inside the victim's work apron and discovered that there was missed calls from his sister, Aurora Tremaine. They then informed Deklan's sister about the murder, where she then burst into tears and pleaded the detectives to find out who killed him.

Meanwhile, Spencer asked the player to help him as he wanted to renew vows with his wife, Valerie Ashworth, as they were in Granite Meadow. He and the player then headed to the steakhouse and found Spencer's take out order in the kitchen before they headed to the meadow river to set up the picnic. Soon after, Spencer realized that he had lost his ring before the player found his ring in a bunch of reeds. Soon after, Valerie arrived to eat with Spencer before they both renewed their vows, Spencer promising to be there for her every day and Valerie promising to be the support behind him every day. After all the events, Chief Flanagan told them that they would need to investigate Granite Meadow for the assassin that killed Deklan Tremaine and the criminal kingpin who was behind Daniel Hartmann's kidnapping.
