The Red Lipstick Murder

(Page Top)

___________
|Crime Scene|
_______________________________________________________________________________


Clue- Size 8 shoe prints
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
There are shoe prints all over the place. You'll notice one of them has some
white stuff around it. A cast has been made of it. Examine it and you'll find
that the prints were caused by a size 8 men's shoe.

Clue- Blunt force trauma
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Examine the victim's head. Turn it so you can see the right side and you'll
gather this clue.

Clue- Missing jewelry
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Examine the victim's left hand. Turn it and you'll notice a ring has been
violently ripped off.

Clue- Writing on body
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Examine the victim's stomach. The writing, in lipstick, says "Fuck you BD" and
"Tex".

Clue- Lipstick
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Find the handbag laying on the ground near the victim. It's next to a
hairbrush. Open it and further examine the lipstick inside. It hasn't been
used, which means the killer must've brought some of his own.

Clue- Bamba Club lighter
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Look on the ground closer to the bench. You'll find a globe. Move the pieces
around so that they make North and South America. The globe will open,
revealing a lighter and the Bamba Club marking/address.

Newspaper
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
On the ground in front of the cabinet just after you enter.

Clue- Female shoe
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
On the floor in the dining room. Tilt it and you'll find that it's a size 9
shoe.

Clue- Missing jewelry
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
More of an update to the same clue. Look on the dresser in the bedroom for
a ring box. Open it up. There's nothing inside. You can also look at the
picture next to it. It's not a clue, but it gives you a good look at the ring.
It's pretty distinct.

Location- Jacob Henry's apartment
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Look at the note on the refrigerator.

Clue- Forced entry
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Check the window next do the back door. It's been broken.

Clue- Marital problems
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Clue- Death threat note
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Look on the cabinet in the kitchen with the phone on it for a notepad. You can
use the pencil to shade the paper, revealing what was written on top of it.

Clue- Size 11 shoes
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
In the bedroom, look in the open suitcase on the bed. Tilt the shoe to get a
look at the size on the bottom. Not a match to the shoe prints at the crime
scene, that's for sure.

Jacob Henry
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Movements of victim- Lie; Use the Bamba Club lighter to prove the lie.

Last contact with victim- Truth

Motive for murder- Lie; Use the death threat note to prove the lie.

Henry puts up a fight after the questioning. Punch him a few times to subdue
him. Use the phone to get some people to pick up the Henry. You'll also hear
from the coroner, who lets you know that a socket wrench was used to bash
Celine Henry's skull in. She was also sexually abused. Finally, you get a new
P.O.I., Alonzo Mendez, the owner of the vehicle that the victim got into.

Mendez is in apartment 16. It's the very last door on the top floor.

Clue- Size 8 shoes
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Look in the bedroom. There's a shoe laying by the bed. It's a size 8, same
size as the shoe prints at the crime scene.

Clue- Used lipstick
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Look in the box on the bedroom floor with all the blood in it. The lipstick
has definitely been worn down, and with force.

Clue- Socket wrench
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Laying in the box next to the lipstick.

Mendez will come into the apartment after you examine these items. Chase him
out of the window onto the rooftops. Once he gets back on the ground, he'll
get into a car. Drive after him. Try to get on his left side and your partner
will try to shoot out his tires, making it a whole lot easier to stop him.
Catch him to close this case up.




 

The Golden Butterfly

(Page Top)


___________
|Crime Scene|
_______________________________________________________________________________


Clue- Small men's footprints
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Check the footprints leading up to the victim.

P.O.I.- Deidre Moller
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Check the victim's handbag. It's laying by the tree. Inside you'll find her

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Check the victim's head. Tilt it to the side and you'll get a good look at a
distinct rope pattern around her neck.

Clue- Size 8 work boots

Look in the parent's bedroom, on the floor by the window.

Clue- Bloody shoes
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Check the incinerator. You'll see a bloody shoe in there, size 8.



______________
|Central Morgue|
_______________________________________________________________________________


Talk to the coroner. He'll direct you to some pieces of rope on the counter.
Compare each piece of rope to the picture of the rope imprint on the victim.
The last piece is a match.

Clue- Size 8 footprints
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
More of an update. Examine the footprint casts next to the piece of rope for
some more insight. After this, go over to the body and examine it. You'll just
make a remark, but looking at it stops the investigation music, so you might
as well.

Get on the phone after you're done here. The victim's car has turned up in the
parking lot of the Belmont High School. Another reason to head over there
right now.



___________________
|Belmont High School|
_______________________________________________________________________________


Shortly after arriving you'll have to chase down the local pedophile, Eli
Rooney. After you catch him you find out that he's holding the butterfly
brooch belonging to the victim.

Check the trunk of the car for the bloody rope.

Victim's vehicle recovered- Lie; Use the overalls with H.M. to prove the lie.

At this point you can charge either of the suspects. Your partner seems to
think Mr. Moller is the killer, but putting a child molester behind bars is
never a bad thing. Either way, it's up to you. Charge someone to close this
case.




 

The Silk Stocking Murder

(Page Top)


___________
|Crime Scene|
_______________________________________________________________________________


At the crime scene, examine the body. You don't get any clues, but you do
get some insight. She was strangled, again, and her ring was ripped off of
her finger...again. She's also holding half of a library card in her right
hand. There's also writing on her body in lipstick. Again. The coroner fills
you in on other stuff after you examine the body.

Follow the blood trail. You'll come across a key with the number 5 on it
hanging from a pipe.

Clue- Dot pattern note
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Follow the blood trail. Shortly after the key, you'll find this note on the
ground. It has 2 dots, then 5 dots, then 3 dots. Examine the blood trail
when you get to the fire escape and you'll see that you have to go up, onto
the rooftop. Up here, follow the blood trail to some kind of pigeon coop.
There's an envelope inside labeled A. Maldonado. There's no letter in the
envelope though. Hop to the next rooftop and keep an eye out on the ground
along the blood trail for some make-up. Climb the pipe at the end and you'll
come across the victim's ring hanging on the next rooftop. Keep going and
you will come across a bucket of blood with a paint brush laying next to it.

Clue- Library card
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
At the end of the blood trail you find the victim's handbag. Look inside to
find the other half of the library card.

brother.

letter from the Black Dahlia killer has turned up.

Clem Feeney
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Distinctive necklace- Doubt

Contact with victim- Doubt

Movements of victim- Truth

After talking with Clem, go through the green doors to your left. Look on
the desk in here for a wooden box. You'll notice three dice coming out of it.
They act like a combination. You'll have to rotate them until each reads the
right number. This should be familiar. Pull out the dot pattern note you
found at the crime scene. The combination is 2, 5, 3. Inside you'll find the
disassembled charm bracelet.

Clue- Scalpel
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Look on the other desk in the back room for the bloody scalpel.

After finding the scalpel you'll have to chase Clem down in your car. Remember
to get on his left side so your partner can shoot out his tires. Once you
catch him, this case is closed.

but there are some concerns about the rising body count. It also turns out
that Theresa Teraldsen, your victim from the previous case, did have a message

The Quarter Moon Murders

(Page Top)



______________________
|Central Police Station|
_______________________________________________________________________________


Clue- Black Dahlia letter; Clue- Shelley excerpt
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
You start in the bottom floor, looking at more Dahlia letters. The poem book
and the Dahlia letter itself are both ultimately pointless, but the poem
excerpt is what you need to familiarize yourself with. You'll come across a
series of these excerpts and each one points to the next. The first one points
to Pershing Square.



_______________
|Pershing Square|
_______________________________________________________________________________


Clue- Social Security card; Clue- Second excerpt
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Climb the fountain and you'll find Elizabeth Short's social security card.
Short is famous for being the Black Dahlia murder. You'll also find the
second Shelley excerpt. The "curved roof" portion is your most obvious clue-
it points to a domed roof. The mountain's frozen tears/long diamond spires
thing is pretty telling as well. Go to your main map and hover over landmarks
that you've found. Ones you haven't found but that are relevant will now show
up as question marks, so you shouldn't have to go running around searching for
them. Keep looking at the descriptions until you find something that matches.



_______________
|Hall of Records|
_______________________________________________________________________________


You'll find this just up and to the right of the Central Police Station on
your map.

Clue- Deidre Moller's watch; Clue- Third excerpt
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Follow your partner up to the top floor and into the maintenance room.
Climb the ladder and walk across the line to get onto the chandelier. You'll
have to maintain your balance on this line, though if you don't, you'll still
catch yourself and you can just pull yourself back up. Once you're on the
chandelier, you'll find the watch and the next excerpt. Before you can read too
much of it, the chandelier will start to collapse. Swing it back and forth
until Cole jumps off of it. Now you can read the excerpt. "Man's eye and ear
roofed over Sculpture and Poesy" is something you need to take literally.
"Where science bedews his daedal wings" is another telling hint.



______________
|Public Library|
_______________________________________________________________________________


This Library is on 5th Street, between Flower and Grand.

Clue- Antonia's Medallion; Clue- Fourth excerpt
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
You'll have to do a lot of climbing to get up to the top of the library.
There's also some balancing acts involved. Once up there though, you'll find
the medallion and the next excerpt. This whole excerpt deals with death and
destruction. The death part is something to remember. "Jammed in the hard,
black deep" is a pretty telling clue.



_________________
|Westlake Tar Pits|
_______________________________________________________________________________


On your map, from the Library, keep going left. You should notice there's a
vertical line where the roads stop going diagonally and start going
horizontally. The Tar Pits are at the bottom of that vertical line, below 9th
Street.

Clue- Theresa Taraldsen's shoe; Clue- Fifth excerpt
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
You'll have to do some walking around in the tar to get to the island in the
center. The platforms surrounded by posts are stable, but the others will sink
when you step on them, so don't take your time. When you get to the island
you'll find the shoe and the next excerpt. The main clue here is the sphere.
It's a sphere, but light and music pass right through it. The landmark is
really close to you, if it helps.



______________________
|L.A. County Art Museum|
_______________________________________________________________________________


Just above the Westlake Tar Pits.

Clue- Celine Henry's Garnet Ring; Clue- Sixth excerpt
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
You'll have to make your way through a hedge maze for this. At the first
intersection go right. Turn right at the second intersection and then
immediately left. Keep going straight all the way to the center of the maze.
You'll find the ring and another excerpt. "Thrones, altars, judgement-seats,
and prisons" and "sceptres, tiaras, swords, and chains" both point to the
setting of the next place. "The ghosts of a no-more-remembered fame" may also
be helpful.

From the Museum, follow 9th Street back down into Central L.A. until you see
Francisco Street. The set is here, between 8th and 9th.

Clue- Evelyn Summers' ring; Clue- Seventh excerpt
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
You'll have to get up to the throne. Use the staircase in the back. You'll
eventually jump onto a platform that falls apart and you'll have to balance it
while your partner finds a way off. When he drops the plank, move the platform
forward and Cole will automatically jump off. Use the ladders to get down to
the throne, where you'll find the ring and the final excerpt. "Thorn-wounded
brow" and "So thy sick throes shake not that crucifix" are two pretty obvious
hints for the final location. After you put it back, the set starts to
collapse, so get out of there.

|Christ Crown of Thorns|

From the Intolerance Set, look down and to the left and you'll see this
landmark. Enter the church and you'll be confronted by the Black Dahlia Killer,
who turns out to be Garret Mason, the temp bartender from "The Red Lipstick
Murder". He escapes when you move forward, so head into the house next to the
church. You'll find Mason's own personal torture chamber in here. Head down
into the tunnels and be careful. Mason likes to wait for you to come around a
corner, then blind fire with his shotgun from the next corner. Keep chasing
him. Chances are you won't be able to take him down until he reaches the end
of the tunnel or gets outside. It empties out into the cemetery, so he'll
take cover behind a tombstone. Put him down to close this and so many other
cases. You'll be promoted to Vice.
