Events of Criminal Case

Simone became a suspect after she approached Jack and the player at the scene of the crime and identified the victim. She revealed that the victim was a lawyer and an auctioneer acting on behalf of King Louis XV of France. She said that she had been honored to have the auction held at her estate and proceeded to direct the team to the victim's bedchamber.

Simone was spoken to again about her message to the victim. She told the team that she used to work for the victim and described him as a horrible employer. She informed them that she agreed to host the auction because she wanted to show the victim how far a person could come up in the world without being cruel to others.

In the end, it was proven that Simone was Pelletier's killer. Simone said that she and her family used to be slaves in Pelletier's plantation. When Pelletier sold off her parents to another plantation, she and her sister tried to escape. Unfortunately, her sister was caught and so Simone watched as he personally whipped her sister to death. When Pelletier returned to the estate for the auction, Simone used the knowledge on explosives that she gained from her late husband by giving her former master an explosive-laced cigar that blew up as soon as he lit it. The team handed Simone over to the Tortugan authorities.
