Events of Criminal Case

Clyde became a suspect after Jones and the player identified him as the victim's brother. After being told about the murder, Clyde recalled how Doris had been the one to get him a job at S.A.R.A..

Clyde was spoken to again about his grudge against the victim. He explained that Doris often micromanaged him and constantly bossed him about. He then elaborated on the history of strife between the two of them, branding Doris as unsupportive.

In the end, it was proven that Clyde was Doris's killer. Upon admitting to the murder, Clyde said that he found out that Doris had talked the S.A.R.A. heads out of promoting him to the team that moved the meteorite. Doris tried telling her brother that she knew that the meteorite was bad news and wanted him far away from it. Convinced that it was his sister once again trying to micromanage him, Clyde lost control and got into a fight, ending with him strangling her with the belt of her own apron. Judge Powell sentenced Clyde to 15 years in prison.


  • As Clyde turns out to be the killer of his sister at the climax of her murder investigation, he is one of the killers in The Conspiracy to commit domestic homicide.
