A guide for L.A. Noire case Buyer Beware. This is your first case where you learn how to ask questions. Follow this L.A. Noire Buyer Beware Guide to get all of the questions correct and collect all the clues.
The case starts out with Phelps as first responder to a murder on the street close to his beat. This is your first opportunity to investigate a crime scene with an actual body (don’t worry; there will be many more).
Crime Scene at Nunn Bush Shoes
Look around the crime scene at Nunn Bush Shoes for clues. The first clue is on the body of the “vic.” Investigate his jacket pocket to find the clue: Layaway voucher. You can investigate his arms and head like the game suggestion says, but there aren’t any clues to be earned from it.
The next clue is in the trash can by the street. Walk over to it and investigate it to find the clue: FN Browning handgun. This will also add the location: Eagleson’s Gun Store.
About halfway between the body and the trash can, you can find the third clue: .32 shell casings.
After you find the three clues, your partner Ralph tells you to talk to an eye-witness. He refers you to a woman in the store. Go talk to her, and it’s time to get some practice with questions. When you first start speaking, you’ll get two new POI: the victim Everett Gage and the witness Clovis Galletta.
Question Clovis like this:
- Eyewitness account >> Choose “Lie” and use the clue “Layaway voucher” as evidence.
- Possible murder suspects >> Choose “Doubt.”
- Details of shooting >> Choose “Truth.”
After this interview, you should have these clues: Shooting, Layaway voucher, FN Browning handgun, .32 shell casings, Suspect positively identified, and Possible religious motive. You should have these POI: Everett Gage, Clovis Galletta, and Edgar Kalou. You should have these locations: Nunn Bush Shoes, Eagleson’s Gun Store, and Hartfield’s Jewelry Store. It’s time to move on. You can go to Eagleson’s Gun Store for more information about the weapon, but I’ve heard of some people going straight to the Jewelry Store to get Kalou. I’ll provide information about the Gun Store in case you are interested.
