Clara Burns, appearing as a minor character in Criminal Case, was mentioned during the events of Game, Set, Murder (Case #40 of The Conspiracy).


Clara was the deceased ex-wife of Gunnar Burns, currently the landscaper for the Grimsborough University. She had been murdered over 20 years ago.

Events of Criminal Case

Over 20 years ago, Clara had divorced Gunnar, taking everything from him in the process. Angered, Gunnar bashed Clara's head in with a brick and buried her body in the backyard, eventually getting away with the murder. However, the local council started working on an underground Internet connection past his backyard, urging him to relocate the body to avoid detection. Gunnar took the remains to the university tennis courts and buried them there under the guise of resurfacing, but was caught in the act by Stephanie Griff. Gunnar then killed Stephanie while torturing her to find out what she had discovered.
