Events of Criminal Case

Corpse Chic

After arresting Elise Marx's killer, Enzo enlisted the player's help in persuading Émile to sign himself up for online dating. Despite initial resistance, Émile allowed Enzo to follow through with his plan. They asked photographer Lola du Maurier to take photos of Enzo for his dating profile. After they found and repaired Lola's camera flash, Enzo told Émile that a bottle of vintage Château Megot in his profile picture would make him look more refined. After finding a bottle at Café Le Froufrou, Émile, Enzo and the player met Lola at Pont Alexandre III for the photoshoot. After the shoot, Lola commended Émile for looking adorable and told him that the girls on the dating app would be begging for his number in no time.
