Notable events of Criminal Case

Season 1

Main article: Grimsborough

A new beginning

The player made their debut in solving a murder at the entrance of town. They were introduced to the rest of the team, the last of them being Ramirez, who met the player while informing that a victim's mother was ready for questioning. Partnered with Jones, the team would arrest the department's detective Harry Landry for the murder of his partner Ed Dunkin.

After arresting Italian mobster Tony Marconi for Vipers gang leader Salvador Cordero's murder, Mayor Howard Johnson was impressed by the player's performance, thus promoting the team to the Financial Center. There, they arrested businessman Alden Greene for the murder of a journalist, in which Alden exposed General James Marsh as his accomplice, penetrating through the politics of the Mayor. Realizing the player's tenacity, the Mayor promoted the player to the Historical Center.

Unmasking a serial killer

After securing the annual Dog Pageant by arresting its participant Margaret Littlewood for poisoning the local dogs (with Jones being poisoned in the process), the Mayor moved the team to the University. There, the team would investigate a serial killer, "The Rorschach Reaper", who hypnotized three people to commit murders. During the University Prom Ball, the prom queen Madison Springer's tiara was exploded, killing her. The team would unmask psychology student Tess Goodwin as the Rorschach Reaper – all orchestrated to manipulate Jones into killing the player. While hypnotized, Jones pointed his gun at the player, resulting in Ramirez hitting him and the player arresting her. As such, the Mayor promoted the team to Maple Heights.

On the other hand, Chief King's granddaughter, Cathy (under the alias "The @rtist"), started assisting the team in their investigations, much to his disapproval.

Chief King's betrayal and bringing down the Crimson Order

During the mayoral election day, they found socialite Adam Bentley shot to death, arresting Chief King for his murder. Unfortunately, he committed suicide before the team could ask him about his motive. After attending his funeral, Stuart Huckabee, the Chief's old friend, asked the team to go to the natural harbor and dig the truth behind the murders happening in the city, only to be found murdered hours later.

After arresting Stuart's killer, the team found out that Chief King was a member of The Crimson Order, a secret society.
