One Wedding and a Funeral is a case featured in Criminal Case, appearing as the forty-seventh case of the game as well as the city of Grimsborough. It takes place in Maple Heights, a district based in Grimsborough.
The victim was a famous pilot called Walter Fairbanks, who was engaged to marry Lola Vallez. He was found dead after crashing his plane on the way to his wedding party. The killer turned out to be Lola's brother, Esteban Vallez.
Esteban profited from Lola's diva fame to keep himself afloat, but when she met Walter, he sort of opened her eyes regarding her brother and asked her to stop giving him money, which she did. Esteban was furious that Lola discontinued funding him with Walter in the picture, and therefore decided to kill him.
In court, Esteban claimed that Walter treated people like a joke and only cared what people could bring him as if Walter always wanted something larger than the last, assuming that Walter would be bored with Lola in a short amount of period of time resulting in a premature divorce (like Walter did to Molly Mocard), but Judge Hall countered that money was the real motive for the murder. Esteban was found guilty of premeditating a plane crash that killed Walter and was sentenced to 20 years in jail, and Lola even told Esteban after his indictment that he ruined her life by just killing Walter and for preventing her from marrying one of Maple Heights's affluent personalities.
