Events of Criminal Case

Bad Vibes

After arresting Rainee Day's killer, Felix and the player asked Ben about Chief Arrow's foul mood, which had started ever since they arrived in Saguaro, Arizona. Ben revealed that Saguaro held memories for the chief as he had honeymooned there with his late wife. Ben suggested that they helped remind the chief of the good times and pointed them in the direction of the crystal caves as Chief Arrow had gone there with his wife.

Hashtag Murder

After arresting Marigold Carson's killer, Ben and the player demanded answers from José Carvallo about Tiffany being an enchanted doll. After José explained how Tiffany came into existence, Ben and the player left him. Ben then started to reminisce about his dad, Michael Shepherd. Ben decided to send his dad a present. After they found some coffee beans, they sent them to Priya for analysis. Priya determined that while the coffee beans were strong, they were safe to drink. The player then accompanied Ben as he called his dad, who assumed that Ben was on a tour of duty. Ben informed Michael that he was sending him some fresh coffee beans, who tried to get Ben to tell him where he was. Ben and Michael then said their goodbyes.


As the Medic of the Supernatural Hunters, Ben's responsibilities center around carefully examining and analyzing each murdered corpse and informing the team of such results after a certain amount of time or a speed-up process using Criminal Case Cash. His task-wait rates vary depending on the difficulty of the task, but they all cost 1 Criminal Case Cash per 30 minutes.
