When you arrive at Rancho Escondido, the site of another fire, a short cut-scene plays, and you then must pacify the brawlers. This is a good place to get the L.A. Noire Keep a Lid On Achievement if you don’t have it already.
After the brawl, it’s time to start looking for clues. Approach the burnt house directly front of you, and a little to the right you will a clue: Poor cement quality. That’s the only clue at Rancho Escondido, and you decide to head to Elysian Fields.
When you arrive at Elysian Fields, enter the building and talk with the receptionist at the first desk. Then head up the stairs and speak with the second receptionist. While you are speaking with the second receptionist, Monroe comes out and invites you into his office. In Monroe’s office, you can look at the displays, but there is no clue. Go to Monroe‘s desk to start questioning him.
- Elysian linked to arsons >> Choose “Doubt”
- Promotional travel contest >> Choose “Lie” and use the clue “Elysian Fields flyers”
- Local land acquisitions >> Choose “Doubt”
- Rancho Escondido fire >> Choose “Lie” and use the clue “Poor cement quality”
This line of questioning will unlock the L.A. Noire Huckster achievement.
After questioning Monroe, go back towards the desk in front of you and investigate the information there. A list of names will be displayed. Choose Herbert Chapman to get a new POI: Herbert Chapman and a new clue: List of contractors. Go downstairs and use the phone. After a cut-scene, you are alerted of Chapman’s address.
Go to Chapman’s Apartment. After the neighbor tells you he’s not there, investigate the trunk of Chapman’s car. In the trunk you will find two clues: Mosquito coils and .45 caliber ammunition.
After you find the clues, you spot Chapman leaving the laundromat. He sees you, too, and hijacks a trolley. Chase the trolly down, and when it stops, get out of your car and shoot Chapman. A few cut-scenes later and the case is closed.
