What the Heart Wants is the twenty-first case of Criminal Case and the twenty-first case of Warrenville. It takes place in Stardust Junction, appearing as the eighth case of the district.


With info from Lydia Maddox, the team had a lead on the black market as one of their drug dealers was found dealing at the set of a TV sitcom. With everything that has happened since the main actor was found taking drugs, Chief Armstrong sent the player alongside Josiah and Giovanni to investigate. But when they got there, they found mechanic turned repairman Wayne Sparks, dead and smoking from electricity.

Later on, Kenny informed the team that the victim was last spotted at the local police department. Soon afterwards the team was confronted by Osgood Medina telling them they have to leave the district, but they're able to stay due to the fact they're investigating a murder. Eventually the killer was revealed to be local police officer Maxwell Hardy.

With all the evidence, Maxwell confessed that not only he killed Wayne, but he was a member of the black market as well. He went undercover in the police force, and manipulated Osgood into wanting the team out of the district. However, the team didn't leave, causing Maxwell to try and push harder. As for Wayne Sparks, the leader of the market's operations in the district wanted revenge on him for informing the public of their actions. So Maxwell confronted Wayne and threatened him, but when he threatened Maxwell in turn to go to the proper authorities, Maxwell electrocuted him. For his actions and betrayal to the law, Judge Blackwell sentenced him to life in prison.

After the trial, the team needed to work with the local police to track Maxwell's movements, hoping it would lead them to the mastermind of the market's operations in Stardust Junction. The player worked with Josiah first off to look at Maxwell's belongings. There they found a journal detailing the market's operations, enough to make Maxwell out to be the leader. Though he denied it, he eventually had to confess, and fingered the leader to be The Great Horatio, and even said there was proof at the crime scene. One of Horatio's magic trunks was left there, with orders from Horatio himself telling Maxwell to kill Wayne Sparks.

Osgood also assisted the player and informed the team he saw someone that reminded him of Horatio. With all this proof, the team confronted Horatio, who cracked under the pressure and confessed. It was mostly done as vengeance against the people for shunning him after Reus' first murder, confirming that Reus was not working with the black market. So he felt he should try to monopolize the Artist of the Stars ceremony in the black market's favor, having worked with them ever since the incident. However, before the team could arrest him, Reus appeared wanting revenge against the police for taking his kill away a few cases ago. Knowing Horatio's actions, Reus doesn't want him taking his spotlight, and said they'll see him as an artist amongst the stars, leading them to believe he'll be at the ceremony. A few hours later, Osgood himself comes by and reports that Horatio's body was found in front of the theater the ceremony will be held.
