Events of Criminal Case

Dolly became a suspect after the player and Isaac found her business card in the lighthouse from where the victim was pushed to her death. She was saddened to hear of Lucrezia's death, saying she would mourn her loss more than even her family. Though Isaac doubted that, Dolly insisted that saying she saw it from the victim herself while she was doing charity work.

Dolly was spoken to again about a moving picture of her and the victim, the latter of whom was acting and appeared to not be enjoying it. Dolly was just as unhappy, saying the victim had terrible acting skills and was only employed because of her burn scars. Despite that, she had to scrap her entire project because of the victim's bad acting, calling it a waste of her time.


The belt used by Dolly to give Lucrezia an electric shock.

In the end, Dolly was found to be innocent after the team incarcerated Jordan Wilson for Lucrezia's murder. But Dolly was spoken to again about a belt belonging to her, which according to Charlie, is designed to give the wearer an electric shock. She admitted she was using it on her actors, saying it was the only thing that gave any of her actors authenticity as their performances were horrible. Maddie informed her that while she walked free for now, an officer would be there to investigate her studio.
