—Case Teaser

Unfair Play is a case featured in Criminal Case as the fourth case of the season. It is featured as the fourth case set in the Bliss Beach district of Aetherbourne. It was released on June 29, 2018


Along with Vivienne, we proceed to the volleyball match to keep a lookout on 'The Bliss Breaker' after killing two of the Stone Brothers. Herbert Stone is the coach of the team that would represent Bliss Beach. Before the match begins, we arrive very early to scrutinize the scene before people tamper with it. There, we see a bloody blanket only to unveil the body of volleyball player Sydney Samson, almost unrecognizable due to the injuries.

We first talk to the team captain, Gabrielle Dubois, who we met before in her fiance's murder. Then, we go talk to David Chrysler who claims that the victim was a frequent customer in his store. Lastly, we interrogate Herbert Stone, the coach, and he states that the victim was a frequent MVP for their team.

In the next chapter, we talk to Christine Samson, the victim's mother, who claims that her daughter was a sweet young lady that would not easily make enemies. We also interrogate Claire Faivre, the victim's best friend, about the murder which she states that she and the victim were there for each other through thick and thin. Then, we learn that Chrysler had been sexually harassing the victim online and had shared inappropriate information with her. Suddenly, Claire Faivre breaks down in the court which we go to immediately.

Calming Claire down, we learn that the victim had many problems, most of which can be learned by looking through the victim's locker. We learn that Christine and the victim did not always have a good relationship. Next, we learn that Gabrielle had doubts about the victim saying that she was not yet ready and has beginner's luck. After all that, we look through the crime scene once again to find a trash bag and a wing bucket. Both are significant in apprehending Herbert Stone for the brutal murder.

Soon after defying our claims, he finally confessed that he had truly murdered the young woman. He states that the victim was a whore and actually had interaction with him. After that episode, he had thought that all that was the end. Apparently, the victim had spread the photo throughout the university and it had him fired. He blamed the victim for everything but was fired anyway since the victim was a student. So he formed the barbed bat and relentlessly bashed the victim in the face without having second thoughts. After realizing what he had done, he covered the body in remorse. Due to little signs of regret and heinous actions, Judge Arceneaux sentenced him to 40 years in a high protection facility since 'The Bliss Breaker' was still on the loose.

After the trial, we help Desiree in finding out what her sister was actually up to. Viewing her phone, we see that she had been taking notes about 'The Bliss Breaker'. She states that we must remain vigilant and that the police might need extra help. We then inform Roxanne, her mother, about her daughters doings. Doing so allowed Claire to be grounded since they cannot risk that she die out there.

Then, we go talk to Herbert from the cell that claims he could not have done it alone. As we check his files, we realize that David Chrysler was the brains behind the operation. We then arrest the store owner who claims that the victim also shared intimate photos and videos. These would have caused him to go out of business. After all that is settled, we go to the Blissful Luau to take some time off investigation.
