Events of Criminal Case

Waldo became a suspect after Gloria and the player identified him from a photobooth strip as the victim's son. When informed of the murder, he was initially reluctant to believe them, but after accepting the claim, told them how much of a workaholic the victim was and expressed his disbelief over the murder.

Waldo was spoken to again about his birthday voucher, on which the victim had gotten his son's birthdate wrong. He revealed that he was used to his father's carelessness, but told them that it allowed him to discover his own interests.

In the end, however, Waldo was found guilty of Paul's murder. Admitting to the crime, Waldo said that after he had dropped out of college, his father had forced him to train for a job at iPear, stating that he needed to take over his legacy. Wanting the freedom to choose what he was to do in his life, Waldo had injected raccoon poison into a pear and left it in a fruit basket in the store for his father to eat. Judge Powell sentenced him to 15 years in prison.


  • As Waldo turns out to be the killer of his own father at the climax of his murder investigation, he is one of the killers in The Conspiracy to commit domestic homicide.
  • Per the birthday voucher given to him by Paul, Waldo's birthday falls on April 20.
