Events of Criminal Case

Crispin became a suspect after Gloria and the player found his nametag inside a seafood platter in the Glitz Hotel's mermaid ballroom. The team then talked to Crispin about the murder. Crispin revealed that he was an acting student and was hoping that Celine's big night might get him his first break and help him meet famous Ivywood stars. However, after Celine's death, he said that nobody would care about a waiter like him. Crispin also denied seeing or hearing anything suspicious relating to the victim.

Crispin was spoken to again after beat cop Mia Loukas told the team that Crispin filed a restraining order against the victim. After being asked about this, Crispin revealed that Celine kept throwing herself at him all night, she even forced him to eat oysters while trying to grope his unmentionables. Crispin then decided to file a restraining order against Celine and said that it was the least the victim deserved.

Crispin was found innocent after the team incarcerated Cliff Montgomery for Celine's murder.


  • Crispin's name is a pun on "crisp and rough", alluding to Celine's burning.
