Events of Criminal Case

Ellie became a suspect after Jack and the player found the painting she had given to the victim. When asked about the victim, she told the team that they were going to be megastars in artist Sandy Lemko's new film, "Rubbish". Jack then told Ellie that Billy had been murdered, shocking her.

Ellie was spoken to again about her romantic relationship with Billy. She told the team that she wanted to be in a relationship with him, although he did not feel the same way. Despite her making her intentions clear, he rejected her.

In the end, it was proven that Ellie was Billy's killer. Ellie admitted to the murder, saying that she was Lemko's favorite artist until Billy rejected her advances. Soon after Billy blew her off, the whole scene began ignoring her as well. Desperate to get back in the spotlight, Ellie used an ice pick to stab Billy in the hip and left him to bleed out. The team then handed her to the courts, where she would possibly get sentenced to 20 years in prison.
