Spineless is a case featured in Criminal Case, appearing as the seventieth case of the game and the fourteenth case of Pacific Bay. It takes place in Inner City, a district based in Pacific Bay.


Frank and the player attended to the Saint Patrick parade. There, they found the body of Irish priest Angus O'Brian strung by balloons and floating in the air with his spine missing.

Mid-investigation, Hannah found out that Angus was also a bare-knuckle fighter. Later, Inner Chaos leader Fredo Mancini attempted to burn the church, but was detained in time. The team found enough evidence to arrest Shelly Dulard for the murder.

Although she denied involvement, Shelly admitted to the crime. Angus flirted with Shelly to obtain an intimate picture of her, which he later divulged to humilliate her. With her spirit broken, Shelly lost a fight with Angus. Feeling cheated on, Shelly strangled Angus with a jump rope and then filled him with helium, exploding his lungs. Judge Dante sentenced her to 20 years in jail.

After the trial, the team interrogated Fredo in jail. He implied that his men would be vandalizing the church, which they investigated to find, attached to a wall, Hannah's only written manifesto. After the team concluded that the Inner Chaos placed the manifesto to attract Hannah back, she made clear to Fredo that she would never join them again.

Meanwhile, Ramirez requested the team's help to find his notebook, which contained his investigation about Mark McKenzie. After they found the notebook, Hannah confirmed that Mark received big sums of money from criminals. Mark said that he offered surgeries to suspicious people in order to fund his medicine studies.
