Giovanni Costa, appearing as an unseen minor character in Criminal Case, was mentioned during the events of In the Name of the Father (Case #6 of Mysteries of the Past) and Blood Bath (Case #29 of Mysteries of the Past).


Little is known about Giovanni, except that he was a prominent member of the Italian gang and that he was the father of thug Vinnie Costa.

Events of Criminal Case

Maddie and the player found a puzzle box with a message inside promising vengeance along with a string of numbers. According to Evie, the string of numbers referred to a police file detailing Giovanni's murder, which was committed by Father Donovan. The two then talked to Vinnie Costa.

Vinnie said that in a fight between the Italian gang and the Irish gang, Giovanni, a leader in the Italian community, was shot by an Irish thug, Aengus Donovan. The only thing that was left to Vinnie was the puzzle box where he left that message.
