Fashion Victim is a case featured in Criminal Case, appearing as the fourteenth case of the game as well as in the city of Grimsborough. It takes place in the Financial Center, a district based in Grimsborough.

Plot

After a murder was reported in the shopping mall, the player and Jones went there to discover the body of fashion store owner Lucy Campbell strangled with a hanger and impaled on a mannequin stand.

The detectives had to deal with solving the case with clashing testimonies from bar owner Nina Hunt and sales representative Joey Manzano about the victim's last hours before her death. With Ramirez and mall security guard Biff Wellington's assistance in the investigation, the detectives arrested mall cleaner Odell Toole for the gruesome murder.

Odell then admitted that he killed Lucy with the intention of getting caught so that everyone would remember him forever. Since Odell was just a mall cleaner working for the mall, no one gave him as much credit as he wanted them to. So he wanted to change it by doing something unthinkable, which prompted Judge Hall to sentence Odell to 20 years in jail for the premeditated murder.

After the trial, the detectives were informed of complaints in Nina's bar, the Golden Thimble, however after finding proof, they ticketed Nina on illegally selling absinthe. They also helped Biff recover his MP3 player and the victim's girlfriend Kim Aoki pay tribute to Lucy by finding Lucy's last fashion sketch.
