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.
