—Case Teaser

Welcome to Aurelia! is a case featured in Criminal Case as the first case of the season. It is the first case set in the Grim Harbour district of Aurelia.


Following the closure of their first case, the player met their first partner of the ALEA, Silvano Macerno, in the city's airport on the border of the crime-ridden district of Grim Harbour. However, before Silvano could do anything, they heard an agonizing scream from a flight attendant named Annalise Stewart, who reported her discovery of a body inside a plane's cockpit. The victim then was identified as a pilot named Jerome Mortimer with a black substance leaking from his open mouth.

Coroner Dominic Fletcher was able to determine that the victim choked on the oil that the killer poured down the victim's throat. He later determined that the oil came from a local gas station. Later on, the victim's father Richard Mortimer had an argument with gas station owner Tony Estelle, accusing him of the murder. Eventually, Julian was incriminated as the killer.

Initially denying involvement, Julian finally admitted to committing the murder, explaining that the victim was cruel and unforgiving. He said that several months before, Jerome was involved in a tragic plane crash that killed almost all the survivors but him and a rare few. Since his brother died in the same crash, Julian plotted against him. When he saw the pilot on his flight, he went to take a can of oil from Tony's gas station and poured it down Jerome's throat, suffocating him. Silvano then arrested him, sending him to face Judge Rodriguez, who decided that Julian was stricken with grief and ordered a 20 year sentence with psychological therapy for the murderer.

After the trial, Chief Florence Aleiso congratulated the duo on their first investigation, However she told them that their newest detective, Lydia Striker, had also arrived. She also noted that Tony needed help at the gas station. When Silvano and the player went to the gas station, they soon found a spray paint can, which with a saliva sample, they were able to figure the owner as Asher Woolf. He told them that the Scorpions were a gang in the district.

The player then met Lydia, who wanted to check up on the airport following the murder. Annalise explained that she was packing up Jerome's belongings for his father, but was missing his graduation roll. After the duo found the roll, they then gave it back to Richard, who thanked them. Finally, the three detectives reported back to Chief Aleiso, who applauded their work and then dismissed them for the day. The player then left the station knowing that there was a number of crimes yet to be stopped in the city of Aurelia...
