The Crime Scene
After the introduction cut-scene, go the crime scene with your partner. When you walk up to the house, you will be greeted by the coroner who asks you to follow him in. There will then be a brief cut-scene explaining briefly what has happened and giving you the following information:
- POI: Morelli family
- Clue: Bodies moved
- Location: Morelli House Fire
Now it’s time to look for some clues on your own. You can investigate the bodies, but there is no clue to be found. Directly behind you at marker B, you will find the clue: Family photograph. After finding this clue, there will be another little cut-scene, after which Biggs runs outside. Go outside to talk to Biggs.
While talking with Biggs, you decide to start canvassing the neighbors, but before you do, go ahead and get some more clues. In the front yard on the right is a newspaper for you to collect. After collecting the newspaper, move along the right side of the house to marker C to find a new clue: Water heater.
Head towards the neighbor to ask him some questions, but investigate his yard before you get to him. There are two clues by the tree in his front yard: Cigarette butts and Boot prints. Head over to talk to the neighbor. When you first start talking to him, you’ll get two pieces of information:
- POI: Dudley Forman
- Clue: Weekend away
Now it’s time for some questions.
- Morelli fire witness report >> Choose “Doubt” to get the clue “Houses being demolished”
- Suspicious activity >> Choose “Doubt” to get POI “Smoking man”
- Planned Demolitions >> Choose “Doubt” (new POI “Monroe?”)
- Promotional travel contest >> Choose “Truth.”
After your questions, your partner comes up to talk to you. He brings you the clue: Origami crane. Unfold the crane to get this information:
- Clue: Elysian Fields flyers
- Location: Elysian Fields?
Dudley comes out and shows you the same flyer.
After the cut-scene, go over to the phone to find out information on Elysian Fields Developments. You get the address but then have to talk to your commander who disapproves of your investigation of Elysian Fields, so you and your partner decide to investigate Rancho Escondido instead.
