Events of Criminal Case

Lupita became a suspect after the player and Jack found the mask she gave to the victim on the crime scene. She confirmed inviting Cindy to the parade, deciding to extend an olive branch despite her being unpopular. When informed of her murder, she was surprised saying its one thing to dislike someone, and something else entirely to kill them. Though Lupita said that not many people liked the victim, she could not think of anyone willing to go far enough to kill her.

Lupita was interrogated again about a photo showing that she was mad at the victim. She explained that the victim sat on memorial altar, drank the offering water, and lit a cigarette using one of the memorial candles, all of which made her mad. Even though she went to bury the hatchet, the victim simply laughed at her. When Jack pointed out that she was at the crime scene where Cindy was murdered, Lupita said she had nothing to do with her death.

Lupita was found to be innocent after the team incarcerated Madena Cuervo for Cindy's murder.
