Events of Criminal Case

Jacinta became a suspect after Jones and the player learned that she was friends with the victim. She revealed that they had been best friends for forty years and had travelled around Europe in the past. She told the team that they did everything together and was visibly upset about the murder.

Jacinta was spoken to again about the victim evicting her from her house. She revealed that she was frenemies with the victim, who had a competitive streak. Jacinta's house had made the cover of House & Castle, making the victim jealous and sparking an argument between the two.

In the end, it was proven that Jacinta was Cora's killer. Admitting to the murder, Jacinta said that her family had gone broke after a series of bad investments. She then borrowed Cora for money, which she gladly gave. However, jealous that the Linares mansion was featured on the cover of House & Castle, Cora demanded the money back from Jacinta. Not having money to repay the debt yet and realizing that their friendship was contingent on Cora's feeling of superiority over her, Jacinta knocked her out with an ashtray during an argument and shoved her face into a wine barrel. Judge Powell then sentenced her to 37 years in prison.
