Wrong Side of the Tracks is a case featured in Criminal Case as the seventh case of The Mystery Continues. It is the first case set in the Crimson Banks district of Concordia.

Plot

Following the Concordian Flying Squad's relocation to Crimson Banks, Arthur Wright informed the player and Isaac that a body had been found by the train station. There, they found the body of local woman Mathilda Steele sliced into pieces on the train tracks. Erica Dupri explained that she was departing the station with the train when a masked figure threw Mathilda onto the tracks and as Erica couldn't slow the train in time, the body collided with the train. The duo then continued investigating, labelling potato vendor Sean Flynn and butcher Kristopher Jacksons as suspects. While the pair recapped the investigation, Evie and Greta informed them that Mathilda worked in a local boutique.

After searching the boutique, the pair suspected young thief Tina Ryder and boutique owner Faith Ambridge while also discovering the killer had read Thus Spoke Zarathustra. Mid-investigation, the pair were informed that Mathilda had been dating Faith's late brother. Eventually, the pair were able to arrest Faith for the crime.

Faith quickly told them that they had gotten it wrong and told them to look elsewhere, prompting Isaac to start presenting the incriminating evidence to her. Eventually, Faith snapped and insisted that Mathilda deserved to die for what she had done. Before she could continue, Faith quickly shut her mouth and refused to say anything more. They then arrested her and sent her to court. Due to her refusal to explain her motivations, Faith was sentenced to thirty years in prison by Alexandria Oakley. Following the trial, Arthur told the pair to head back out into the district to uncover the truth behind the murder.

The duo first spoke to Tina as she had stolen Mathilda's bag and asked if she saw anything in the bag. Tina confessed that she threw the bag away by the train tracks prompting them to go there and find it. Inside the bag, the duo found a safe key which led them back to the boutique where they searched through the safe's contents. There, they found a threatening letter from Faith telling Mathilda to keep quiet over her late brother's death. With this new evidence, Isaac and the player confronted Faith in prison who confessed that she had killed her brother after he stole her life savings to pay off gambling debts. When Mathilda found out, she threatened to go to the police which caused Faith to kill her as well. The duo then left the prison and closed the case.

Meanwhile, Giulietta informed the player that she had murmurs of conflicts between the Irish and Italian communities while waiting for a train in the station and suggested they look into it. There, they found a jacket with an Italian flag sewn into it which they quickly looked through. After finding a card and sending it Evie, they discovered the card was the driver's license of Italian gang member Mario Lorenzo who was recently found murdered on the Irish side of river. Evie then suggested they talk to the head of the Italian gang, Giulietta's mother, Franca Capecchi who had recently been released from prison following a series of attacks three years ago. Franca confessed her belief that the Irish were responsible for Mario's death but further explained that she had no intention to retaliate, assuring the pair that prison had changed her and that she wasn't looking to start another gang war. Back at the airship, Giulietta told the team that Franca couldn't be trusted and that they should look into her further.
