Hopefully Skyline97 doesn't mind me reviving their old case rewriting game that I was a big fan of. As before, for each case the previous poster assigns, you'll flip the case to where the killer is now the vicitim and the victim is now the killer. However, for this iteration, you won't have to go all out and rewrite the arrest dialogue. Instead, summarize why and how the new killer committed their crime and how they're punished afterwards (if applicable)
Rewriting dialogue isn't required in this variation.
Now on to A Tudor Murder:
Catherine of Aragon is confronted by Nebet and the player for killing Agnes Manners. After initially denying it and threatening to have Nebet and the player executed by her husband Henry VIII before finally confessing to Agnes' murder. When Nebet admonished Catherine for killing a woman just for not liking her tavern, Catherine proclaimed that she wasn't that petty and that her actions had been motivated by Agnes learning a "shameful secret" of hers.
When pushed, Catherine confessed that while at the Mangy Lion, she became intoxicated and shared a drunken kiss with Alexandre Devereaux. Agnes confronted her with having witnessed the kiss and began blackmailing Catherine, threatening to tell Henry if she didn't pay her regularly. After finally growing tired of being "under the thumb of some lowly peasant" (her words), Catherine lured Agnes to the throne room while she was delivering cross buns, claiming to be giving her a valuable piece of jewelry for her latest payment. Instead, Catherine took a morning star mace and struck Agnes dead. When taken before Henry, Catherine was admonished by her husband for her murderous deed and demeaned as a "harlot" when she confessed to her kiss with Alexandre. While initially set to have Catherine and Alexandre beheaded, Henry was convinced by the player and Nebet that a more suitable punishment would be to have Catherine banished from the kingdom--but not before Henry had her publicly shamed for her dalliance.

In response, Wendall refused to leave and threatened to harm Roxanne Vega (who Wendall had learned was Ronnie's mother via eavesdropping) if Ronnie didn't back down. Enraged at the threat against his mother, Ronnie strangled Wendall to death. After his confession, Ronnie was brought to the police for Wendall's murder, with the team concealing the fact that Wendall was a wendigo from the authorities before Ronnie was sentenced to 25 years of prison.

But once he received a fruit cake from Jorge, he took it as a sign that he did return his feelings, but was too scared to be public about it.
But as Agwe learned after eating two slices of cake, it was laced with laxatives, which left Agwe unable to work for almost a week. Upset, Agwe confronted Jorge on the beach, where Jorge told Agwe to leave him alone and insulted him for his homosexuality. In a blind rage, Agwe grabbed a nearby glass bottle and bashed it against Jorge's head, killing him. After being brought before Mary, the captain sympathized with how hurt Agwe was by Jorge's rejection, but still admonished him for turning to murder as a result. As such, Mary sentenced Agwe to stay on the island and await the voodooo gods' punishment.

Byte the Dust:
Ash Bison is revealed to have killed his girlfriend Joy Schneider. Ash arrogantly tried to deny responsibility, even attempting to point a finger at Troy Cassidy. But after being cornered by all the evidence, Ash scowled and confessed, cursing the player for figuring him out. When demanded for a motive by David, Ash recounted how his daughter Kaitlyn Flynn had come to him and revealed who she was, only for Ash to reject her and claim she was lying to get his money.

Alfie also confessed to another secret: he had secretly been continuing his career as as jewel thief, but now had resorted to breaking into people's homes to steal jewelry to pawn at various shops (citing it was less risky than the jobs he pulled with Grace). While Alfie turned down Grace's jewelry store heist, he decided he would kill Grace before breaking into her house to steal whatever she got from the heist.
While Grace was playing a game of cards at his table, Alfie left Grace a message on the shrimp plate, claiming he wanted to make the heist up to Grace by including her in a big-time heist he had planned. But after meeting Grace outside the casino, Alfie casually asked Grace where she'd stored the gains from the jewelry store heist before stabbing her in the eye with his croupier stick. At his trial, Alfie tried to argue he'd done the world a favor getting rid of Grace, calling her a "reckless, foolish criminal", with Judge Dante arguing that Alfie was not one to pass judgement before sentencing him to 30 years in prison for both Grace's murder and mutliple counts of burgulary.

Upon being confronted with the evidence, Michelle immediately confessed and revealed how, while she was giving the team information as X, she began researching her former clients for SOMBRA ties. After some digging, she discovered Arsenio's status as SOMBRA's current leader. But believing Arsenio to be dead and the title of El Rey to have been passed on to someone else, Michelle thought the information irrelevant.
But then Michelle ran into Arsenio while making a grocery run while the team was in Colombia, with Michelle fleeing as Arsenio attempted to kill her for betraying SOMBRA. After taking refuge in the bell tower, Michelle heard as Arsenio blasted Michelle for her betrayal and revealed how he'd had SOMBRA members keeping tabs on her and the team.

While skipping class a few days back, Tyler overheard Bryan talk about how the @rtist was a menace to Grimsborough University and how he was going to find out who they were and have them expelled from campus.

Later, Gail grabbed a book made by Irina later, and read it, wanting to compliment her back about her book, but found out that she just plagiarized her book, just changing a few stuff. This made Gail mad and she asked Irina about it, who said that her book sounded kind of like her story of working for Derek Molina, so she "borrowed" the plot.
Gail was angry about this, so at a party, she pinned Irina's hands behind her back and forced her into an empty room, where she forced Irina to snort cocaine. Irina later passed out, and Gail dragged her unconcious body into the construction site, where she later turned on a concrete mixer, encasing Irina in concrete, killing her.

But after Leopold's arrest, Sandra was heartbroken and became enraged at Larry for letting his father take the fall for his crime. Sandra confronted Larry after summoning him to her study and ordered him to tell the truth, only for him to scoff and declare that he owned her and that she would be out of a job if she went against him. As Larry mocked his father for taking the fall for him, however, Sandra went into a rage and strangled Larry to death. Sandra then fled the scene, promising the player she wasn't the one who cut out Larry's heart before going to trial.

Infuriated, Dan decided to kill Fred to stop his blackmail.
