—Case Teaser

Walk the Plank is a case featured in Criminal Case as the third case of the season. It is the third case set in the Grim Harbour district of Aurelia.


The player went with Silvano Macerno to the shipwreck where there was something with the Scorpions gang was hiding. However when they got there, they found the cadaver of young woman Cassandra Georges found tied to the wreck's bowsprit. Dominic's examination of the body proved that the victim was strangled to death, and then the killer sewn her legs together to form a mermaid tail and then tied her corpse to the bowsprit. Later, the victim's estranged son, Jack Reacher came to the station to reveal himself, but later, Jack was caught looting the victim's belongings. Despite Jack's inference with the case, the team were able to incriminate Henri LaFayette as the killer.

Henri denied involvement until confessing that he had murdered Cassandra. He explained that he'd been stalking the victim and had even stole a lock of her hair once. Henri confessed that she discovered what he'd been doing so Henri strangled her and decided to display her like the "beautiful mermaid" he believed her to be. Evelyn Rodriguez was disgusted by the murderous stalker's actions in court, and sentenced Henri to life imprisonment in a mental institution.

After the trial, Chief Aleiso told the player and a hungover Lydia to go speak to Eduardo about why the Scorpions were on the shipwreck. The duo soon found a map which led to a key that was believed to have been taken by pirate Yvonne Malstaire. Lydia and the player spoke to Yvonne who told them she had hidden the key away in Cassandra's house due to her ship running aground. The pair finally found the key and opened the safe which Eduardo and the Scorpions wanted. It was revealed that inside the safe was a large amount of gold which the Scorpions wanted to fund their illegal actions. Lydia then asked if she and the player could inform Rebecca Fletcher, Dominic's sister to gloat about their victory. Chief Aleiso told her department to be on the lookout for anything suspicious and decided that it was time to go to the Scorpions seedy headquarters which Asher had told them about previously.
