Mid-investigation, Chief Marquez told the team of reports of someone fitting Becky's profile running away from the Little Mermaid nightclub after racking up a $1005 bill. Later, Hannah discovered a picture Becky took of Derek selling drugs in her Friendnet account, but Derek said the picture was not enough proof without an eyewitness. The team, however, gathered enough proof to arrest Derek for the murder.
Upon admitting to the murder, Derek said that the people in Ocean Shore were willing to turn a blind eye to his lucrative drug-selling business, except Becky. Reasoning that she "did not belong" and because of the picture she took of his drug-dealing, Derek tracked Becky down with a GPS and froze her to death with a liquid nitrogen canister (playing loud electronic music in the process, explaining the broken frozen bits of her body). The Honorable Dante sentenced him to life in prison.
After the trial, Frank and the player helped bartender Eva Sanchez retrieve her (adult) film contract and solved a "mugging" case involving lifeguard Zack Taylor and a monkey belonging to street performer Lenny Spitfire. Afterwards, Chief Marquez decided to relocate the team to Bayou Bleu, much to Frank's dismay.

- Move on to a new crime (in Bayou Bleu)! (No stars)
- All suspects with the exception of Eva Sanchez appeared previously in Ocean Shore's previous cases.
- This is the first Pacific Bay case (albeit one of the cases in the game overall) not to require stars to advance in-between chapters and cases.
- There are two Easter eggs in this case's crime scenes featuring Grimsborough PD members:
- After unlocking the portable printer, it prints a picture of Eva's face swapped with the popular meme face known as "trollface".
- In the crime scene "Campfire", you can find a cigarette box marked "Pretty Lights", which is an obvious reference to Pretty Simple. This cigarette brand was also mentioned during the events of Good Cop Dead Cop.
