The Dockyard Killer is a case featured in Criminal Case, appearing as the fourth case of the game as well as the city of Grimsborough. It takes place in the Industrial Area, a district based in Grimsborough.


A barge driver named James Smith reported the police as he found a dead body in the docks. There, Jones and the player collected the body of Dan Broke, who was found dead bleeding from a stomach-wound. The killer turned out to be a drug dealer named Bulldog.

Dan once bought drugs from Bulldog and owed him $2,000; however, the latter lost his patience waiting for the former to pay him back. As a result, Bulldog stabbed Dan in the stomach with a pocket knife at Oakville Valley (where Dan worked), dumped the victim on the docks and left him to bleed to death.

Judge Hall sentenced Bulldog to a 20-year minimum jail term for grand manslaughter.

After the arrest, the police would assist James in finding a delivery address, as well police informant Bart Williams with finding his wallet and the victim's girlfriend Sally Stone in finding her antidepressants.
