Mary Goodwin, acting as a minor character in Criminal Case, appeared in multiple flashbacks during the events of Ashes to Ashes (Case #55 of Grimsborough).


Mary was a Pilgrim woman who lived in the 1600s as amongst the first of the Goodwins who settled in what is Grimsborough as we know today. Mary wore a female Pilgrim outfit and a white Pilgrim bonnet. According to Morgan Goodwin, witchcraftery runs in the Goodwins, as Mary was a practitioner of witchcraft.

Events of Criminal Case

Sometime in 1649, Mary gathered information about the Crimson Order’s illicit activities and wanted to out the information to the public, but the Order could not let Mary get away with it. The Crimson Order cornered Mary and as authorities, arrested and tried Mary for witchcraftery, but in reality, the Crimson Order obstructed justice by using an excuse to prevent Mary from outing a criminal endeavor during the age of the Colonial Pilgrims.

Mary asked Claire Bell to hand out evidence of the Order’s guilt when the time was right moments before she was executed. She was then executed in November 1649, tied up to a pole and placed in a bonfire that killed her. The cause of Mary perishing was the excessive amount of harmful chemicals Mary inhaled for a prolonged period of time.

Over 300 years later, after her descendant's murder seemed to be related to the Crimson Order once again, Jones and the player deduced that Mary's execution and Tess's murder were linked. They eventually asked Constance Bell, Claire's descendant, for the documents that Mary had given Claire over 300 years ago.


  • Mary was executed in 1649, but the execution order in which Constance willfully gives to Jones and the player states the execution order was issued in 1648. This is most likely a developer oversight.
