Events of Criminal Case
Mitchell was first interrogated when Jones and the player found his lip prints on a whiskey glass in Jerry's club, The Livingstone Club. Mitchell told the team that the Livingstone Club was like a second home to him as he often frequent Jerry's club to discuss trade secrets to those he trusted. Later on, Mitchell was interrogated again, as while he was assigned to sit on the same table that had the cake which killed Jerry, he was not seated at the time of the murder since he had to put sunscreen on, which meant that Mitchell used sunscreen.
At the climax of the investigation, all evidences proved Mitchell as the transgressor. To arrest Mitchell, Jones disguised himself as Jerry and approached Mitchell at the Garden Party by surprise. Mitchell was shocked and spilled out the truth. He said that he killed Jerry because Jerry got him drunk one night, making him reveal that his family was broke, while Jerry recorded him saying that. Mitchell did not want his family name to get spoiled as the people in Maple Heights would have regarded him with disdain if they had known the truth, and he said that murder was a lesser crime in this district. Mitchell wanted to administer Jerry the truth serum because he wanted access to Jerry's safe in the Livingstone Club, but failed as Jerry would tell the truth behind the Westvilles anyway. To preserve the Westville name, Mitchell opted to kill Jerry by rigging a cake with razor blades. Jones then revealed his true self to allow the player to make the arrest.
In court, Mitchell told Judge Hall that the families of Maple Heights existed for centuries, and had been the most respected people of Grimsborough, but Judge Hall countered that all Mitchell did was add murder to the Westville name. In spite of Mitchell's words, the court deduced that a murder, no matter the details of and the motives behind the occurrence, was a punishable offense even though the slaying was justified which were grounds for a lifetime jail sentence for Mitchell.
