Peace and Dead Quiet is a case featured in Criminal Case as the one-hundred and thirty-eighth case of the game. It is the twenty-third case of the game's World Edition (Season 3) and also the fifth case to take place in South Asia.
Previously, Elliot had successfully tracked down Guru Om Padmasana in Bhutan. Chief Ripley sent Carmen and the player to the Tiger’s Nest Monastery—Padmasana's last location. Before reaching the temple, they found local monk Lam Ugyen with his arm chopped off at the cliffside.
During the investigation, Ingrid demanded the team to head to the Tsechu festival when Lam was supposed to preside there. Soon after, Ingrid informed them that the victim's adoptive daughter Deki was causing a disturbance at the festival. Eventually, the cops gathered enough evidence to arrest wandering musician Tashi for the murder.
Tashi was going through a three-year trial to acquire the hand of Lam's adoptive daughter. When he discovered that Lam Ugyen had married Deki against her will, he wanted to save her by all means possible. In impulse, he axed Lam Ugyen's arm off. Understanding his motive, Judge Adaku sentenced Tashi to 10 years in jail for the murder.
Post-trial, Marina wanted to interrogate Padmasana because of his unusual transactions with a firm called One Mother Milk, but interrogated yogini Averly Worthington instead after she insisted on Padmasana's innocence. She said that she did not question the guru's finances because she trusted him. The cops then decided to look around the monastery. There, they found a flyer of One Mother Milk. The flyer said that the charity was supplying baby formula to families throughout Asia and that it was owned by O.M. MediLab, so they sent it to Elliot for analysis.
Through the flyer, Elliot discovered that Padmasana was funding SOMBRA through the charity. Carmen and the player wanted to get more information from Averly, but she refused to say anything about Padmasana other than the fact that he had left the temple without telling his followers of his destination. Assuming Averly was going to follow the guru, Carmen had Elliot to track her movements.
After Druk had helped Lars and Angela renew their wedding vows and Marina agreeing to talk to Jonah about the day he tried to kill her, Elliot said that Averly was going to Tibet. The cops took a flight to the plateau to confront Padmasana once and for all.
