Events of Criminal Case

William became a suspect after Jones and the player found the watch that he had given to the victim. He revealed that his son was the sweetest and most talented boy that they could imagine, and burst into tears when he wondered what he would do without his son.

William was spoken to again about his identity as the victim's adoptive father. He confessed that the victim was trying to find his biological father, which he did not understand. He then wondered how his son could do that to him.

William was found to be innocent after the team incarcerated Haruki Kato for Marcus' murder.
