Events of Criminal Case

Ying became a suspect after the player and Jack found the victim's scrap book, which mentioned her. The minute she heard her mother's death, she burst into tears. She cried saying she knew they never should have come to Sichuan, which despite how great her mother said it would be, it ended with her dying.

Ying was interrogated again about a photo of her mother, which called her "the world's worst mother". Despite trying to get out of it, she said that her mother was constantly caring more about orphans than her. The victim was never there for her, and only brought her along on the trip because she momentarily remembered that she had a daughter. Ying said she was not sorry that she was dead, and would get to inherit her money because of it.

Despite her anger, Ying was found to be innocent after the team incarcerated Ellen Morowitz for Jun's murder. However, she had to be interrogated again about her mother's notes on missing orphans. Ying simply told them that she was at the restaurant all the time surrounded by papers. This prompted Jack and the player to search the restaurant again for the notes.
