Case Transcription-Icon Transcript General

The Murder of Mrs Stanbury is a case exclusive to Criminal Case: Mysteries of the Past, where it serves strictly as an introductory tutorial.


After a young woman was reported dead at Liberty Island, Maddie and the player headed there to retrieve the dead body of Victoria Stanbury, who was found with her throat slashed. After gaining enough evidence from a lab analysis, a witness testimony, and a left-behind clue, the team arrested her husband, Percy Stanbury, for the murder.
