Events of Criminal Case

Dead Space

Astrid was brought into the investigation when the player and Amy found a picture of her and the victim. She and the victim grew up together sharing similar interest about proving the existence in aliens. Astrid believed that Tom's expedition to Mars would have proven that aliens existed. When the picture was brought up, she said that she was not a threat to the victim, but to the army because she believed in the existence of aliens.

Astrid was questioned again after the team found an article about the victim saying life on Mars is impossible. She wrote on the article saying that he does not deserve to go to space. When presented with it, Astrid admitted to being mad at the victim. They both trained to be astronauts but she ended up quitting because the army and PASA kept denying the existence of aliens. When Amy suspected her, Astrid replied saying she regrets sending that message and that she was not responsible for his death.

Astrid was later proven innocent when Brad Raybury was indicted for grand homicide and unauthorized use of military property.

No Place Like Home

The team ended up finding Astrid's keychain with her fingerprints on the scene where Randolph was murdered. She was shocked to hear about Randolph's murder, she remembered that she left the keychain at the fairground when she last saw Randolph. She was convinced that Randolph was an alien and all she wanted to do was help him return to his home planet.

Astrid was due for another interrogation after finding her diary saying that it felt bad to be human after what happened to Randolph. She explained that she wrote it not because she killed him, but because of what he went through at the military base. After learning about what Randolph was put through she was ashamed to feel human.

She was proven innocent for the second time after the team incarcerated Dr. Jarvis Donne for autopsying Randolph.
