Events of Criminal Case


Nelson's book, "The Human Burger Theory".

Whilst investigating the creepy basement where Steve Wood was tortured to death, Jones and the player found a torn cover. Restoring it, the team learned that the cover was of a book named The Human Burger Theory, written by anthropologist Nelson Campbell. As such, the team had to interrogate Nelson.

The team, later on, found a torn card in Cooperville, a homeless camp where Steve lived until his demise. The player did not hesitate to restore the card, thus identifying it as a business card belonging to Nelson--prompting the team to interrogate Nelson for the second time. Nelson stated that he had given the card to a trader named Tyler McAlister, and concluded that Tyler was very interested in his book (The Human Burger Theory) and wanted some more details.
