Events of Criminal Case

When Jones and the player were investigating the crime scene of where Alan Cardwell was found dead, they found a piece of paper mentioning Joshua. They investigated his shop and found a trash can which showed that Alan and Curtis Newman had an argument a few days prior. Joshua was then found near the Church which was a crime scene. He explained that he was visiting Samantha Warner who lived across the street. The team thought that Joshua was seeing Samantha as Alan, Curtis and Paul Oaster all were as well, but Joshua dismissed this saying that he did home appointments.
