This victim reminds me of someone... Ah oui, he looks like my date from last Tuesday! What a body!
—Martine Meunier

Martine Meunier is a main character featured in Season 5 of Criminal Case, where she served as the Chief Medical Examiner (Coroner) of the Grimsborough Police Department.

After resigning from the GBPD, she became a suspect in the murder investigation of journalist Sébastien Lefebvre in Murder à la Mode (Case #2 of City of Romance).


Hailing from France, Martine is 29 years old and worked as a model prior to her tenure to the department. She has green eyes, chin-length blonde hair with side bangs that is held neatly by a large carmine red headband, a small gap between her front teeth, and a beauty mark a bit beneath her right eye. She wears pink lipstick, carmine nail polish, black eyeshadow, a golden V necklace, and a white lab coat with a pocket that holds a pencil and a scalpel over a carmine red blouse with a sheer, black rim. She also has a tattoo of a moth on her chest that says “Death is nothing” in French underneath.

An aloof woman, Martine is especially interested in high fashion and men, the latter being the reason of her flirtatious and coy manner. She has a strange interest for the macabre, but is intolerant of impertinence.

In her suspect appearance in Murder à la Mode, Martine is 31 years old. She has her hair tied back in a bun and wears a black bra under a sheer black blouse with polka dots. It is known that Martine smokes Laval cigarettes, is left-handed, drinks Libertine cocktails and uses embalming powder.

Season 5

Hell Is Other People

After arresting Elaine Seabrook's killer, Martine told Gloria and the player that her colleague from the emergency department had informed her of an unknown fatality at the steakhouse. While there was no sign of foul play, there was something off about it, so she was called to help. She, Gloria, and the player then went to the steakhouse to collect the body.

After Martine conducted the autopsy on the body, she found out that the man had died of a sudden cardiac arrest caused by an overdose of the blood pressure amlodipine. Prior to that, a shipment of amlodipine had been reported missing. However, Martine said that the high amount of amlodipine would not have killed the man alone; she said that the man needed to have ingested (most likely drunk) something that would multiply the drug's potency. Gloria and the player then left to find out more about the victim.

Later, Martine analyzed a sample of the Rocket Cow the man (identified as David O'Connell) drank from. Martine confirmed that the Rocket Cow was the activating agent, more specifically, the caffeine. However, she could not rule out the possibility of a suicide instead of a murder. When she reported her findings to Chief Parker, the chief reassigned the case to another precinct.

The Saddest of All Keys

Soon after investigating the death of Ian Devine, David's murder would turn out to be just the first reported of a string of deaths caused by the amlodipine-Rocket Cow mix, causing Martine to conclude that a serial killer was on the loose.


After arresting Greg Gibbs's killer, Jasper Everett and the player came to Martine to ask her to treat an injury that Amir had sustained in the aftershock. After telling them that her stocks had been depleted by the earthquake, she suggested that they searched Dr. Gibbs's clinic for a stock of medication. Martine was then able to treat Amir with the medication that Jasper and the player had recovered.

Writer's Blocked

After arresting Reggie Liotta's killer, Gabriel and the player sought Martine's fashion advice so that Gabriel could pass as an affluent jet-setter to infiltrate The Higher Truth. She gave Gabriel some clothes and accessories to disguise him, which allowed him to infiltrate the cult.

Dead Men Tell No Tales

Shortly before the investigation, Martine suggested the team go diving underwater in order to find out who released the Demon Fish into Grimsborough waters. However, when the team started to go diving through a flooded street to reach a Xerdan cave so that they could investigate the Demon Fish, they came across the body of Joshua Gibson.

Mid-investigation, when Martine decided to go back diving underwater to explore more about the fish, one of the Demon Fish bit Martine and infected her with the neurotoxin, putting her at risk of death.

After arresting Joshua's killer, Rupert told the team that Martine's condition was rapidly deteriorating and she would die if he couldn't find a cure to the fish's neurotoxin. However, with the help of scientist Ernest Emerson and animal control agent Benjamin Fetcher, Rupert finished producing a cure to the fish's neutoroxin and then immediately administered the antidote to Martine. Luckily, Martine recovered and thanked Rupert and the player for saving her life. After that, Martine revealed that when she swam into the Xerdan cave, she saw Chief Parker's husband, Ray Parker, diving underwater. Martine then said that when Ray saw her, he swam away, and when she tried to swim after him, she was bitten by the Demon Fish. Chief Parker and the player then decided to come to ask Ray about this.

Final Cut

After arresting Cindy McMinn's killer, Martine accompanied the player to talk to Professor Luke Harris about Butcher Lake, the horror film in which Cindy was acting. Later, she and the player found the hard drive containing all the footage of the film, which (per Alex) showed that the crew just needed to film the final scene. The team then met student Sally Hooper and gave back her the hard drive. There, Sally suggested Martine to replace Cindy's role as she and Cindy shared some similarities. After agreeing to replace Cindy's role, Martine and the player headed to the makeup trailer to find the fake blood bags which served the film. Later, Gloria and the player came to the movie set to see Martine and Sally filming the final scene of the film.

A Crime Like No Udder

After arresting Debby Gideon's killer, Rita and the player gave Martine a cheese sculpture of the Eiffel Tower for her birthday. She thanked them for the gift and added that she had always wanted to do something "typically American" for her birthday. This prompted them to find Martine tickets for the rodeo show. After finding some tickets, they brought Martine to the rodeo show. After enjoying themselves at the rodeo, Martine thanked the others for the best birthday evening she had ever had.

Blaze of Glory

In order to defeat Otto Kessel and the rest of the invincible neohumans, Amir concocted a supercharged serum that imparted upon its taker incredible power over the course of a couple of hours before killing them. When Rita volunteered to sacrifice herself and take the serum, Martine tried to talk her out of it, saying that she was her best friend and her sister. However, Rita's mind was made up, leading to Martine breaking down in tears and hugging her best friend for the last time. After Rita faced off against the neohumans and died in order to take them down, Martine was one of the most affected, still grieving for Rita five months after her death. Additionally, Martine took it upon herself to take care of Rita's dog, Hector.

Murder à la Mode

Martine became a suspect after she ran into Carrie and the player at the crime scene and identified the victim as one of her star journalists. She told the team that she drank with Sébastien every Tuesday to relax, but when she arrived late at the bistro, she found his body. She said that Sébastien was very opinionated, but she did not know of anyone who would have killed him over something he wrote. She then pointed the team in the direction of Flamme office.

Mid-investigation, Carrie and the player learned (per Stacy's CEO Howard Stacy) that Martine used to work as a coroner in the United States. Carrie made a point to remember that detail for when they next spoke to Martine.

Martine was spoken to again about her embalming powder on the DVD for "Lefebvre Fashion Advice Pilot". She explained that she had used the powder to remove a stain on her antique fur coat. When asked about Sébastien's pilot, she revealed that she was against him branching out as she needed him at Flamme. The two argued over the matter, resulting in Sébastien backing down.

Martine was found to be innocent after the team incarcerated Juliette Segal for Sébastien's murder. Later, Martine asked Carrie and the player to find Juliette's tablet and unlock it for her as it contained important information for Flamme's coverage on the upcoming Chior fashion show. In exchange for their help, Martine gifted the player a Parisian outfit.

After finding and unlocking the tablet, Carrie and the player sent it to Émile to search for traces of criminal activity. After discovering that there were voice chats logged with Eleonora Macaron, daughter of mob boss Antoine Macaron, Carrie and the player gave the tablet back to Martine. After being asked about the Macarons, Martine explained that Antoine was a legitimate business partner of Flamme magazine. She then suggested that they went to the bistro if they wanted to talk to Eleonora.


As the (now-former) Chief Medical Examiner (Coroner) of the Grimsborough Police Department, Martine has the responsibility of carefully examining and analyzing each murdered corpse, and to inform the team of such results after a certain amount of time or a speed-up process using Criminal Case Cash. Her task-wait rates vary depending on the difficulty of the task, but they all cost 1 Criminal Case Cash per 30 minutes.
