Cross A Heart

Valentine's Gifts is a case featured in Criminal Case, appearing as the sixty-seventh case of the game. It is the eleventh case of Smart City and the first to take place in the Chinese City district.


The player was promoted to Inner City, where a feud between the Russian community and the Chinese community was ensuing. Laura, Evie and the player went to the main street and spotted the body of Lucrezia Devani hanging from a street banner and with her heart missing.

During the investigation, Giulietta Capecchi vandalized a Russian bar in retribution for the murder. Afterwards, the team discovered that Ling had married a Russian man called Peter Devani. The team gathered enough evidence to arrest politician Ivana Devani, Peter's sister, for the murder.

After blaming the Chinese for the murder, Ivana admitted to the crime. Ivana found out about her brother's wedding with Lucrezia. Unable to tolerate having Chinese blood in her family, she stabbed Ling with a Chinese dagger, removed her heart and claimed it as a trophy. Judge Takakura sentenced her to 20 years in jail.

After the trial, Anna told the player to keep an eye on Giulietta Capecchi. He said that Russians had been placing their propaganda all over the street. They found a poster depicting Ling's murder and encouraging readers to join Inner Chaos' fight to stop the feud. When told about the poster, Wei said that Inner Chaos was an anarchist organization that ceased to operate and then jumped back into activity.

After Evie and the player helped Giulietta Capecchi with her immigration incident with Dolores Clark, Andrea told the player to stay alert for Inner Chaos.
