Continuing the investigation at Nicholson Electroplating
Head back under the I-beam where you found the first clue, and take the other side of the fork that you passed earlier. Follow the path around to the right, and an officer will call out for you. Investigate the object he’s looking at for another puzzle.
The prop spinner puzzle is a lot simpler than the last one. Simply line up the letters on the spinner. Your controller will vibrate when you are in the right position, and you’ll have to try to hold it still on the position for a few seconds to solve it. The words will spell out: P&W WASP MAJOR R-4360. This will give you the clue: Airplane part, and it will unlock the L.A. Noire The Nose Knows Achievement.
Take the path back out to where the cars are parked, then continue on towards the entrance of the building to find the owner Fred Nicholson. He will introduce himself, and then you have some questions:
- Nicholson plant explosion >> Choose Doubt.
- Whereabouts of Okamoto >> Choose “Lie,” and use the clue: Spy camera as evidence.
- Whereabouts of McLellan >> Choose Doubt.
After you question Fred Nicholson, get in your car and go use the telephone at the corner of Hobart Boulevard and Oakwood Avenue to find the address of Superior Laundry Services. After you get the address, head over to the Deciphered Address.
When you arrive at the Deciphered Address, look at the mailboxes to find that Tomoko Okamoto is in apartment 1. Go upstairs, and it is your first door on the right. Enter the apartment to see that it has been ransacked, and then start looking for clues. Find all the clues in Okamoto’s apartment to unlock the L.A. Noire Skeletons In The Icebox Achievement.
Open the refrigerator to find a dead body. It will fall out on the floor for you to investigate. Investigate the head and move it to the right to get the new POI: John Doe. Investigate the body’s left arm to get the clue: Wristwatch. Investigate the right arm for the clue: ring. That’s all on the body.
Walk around to the fireplace. There is a shiny, gold object on the hearth; investigate it to find the clue: Tie pin. Walk towards the bedroom door, and you can investigate the blood stain on the wall and floor, but it doesn’t give you a clue. Continue into the bedroom. Walk past the bed, and on a shelf, you will find another earring. Phelps discovers that it matches the one he found at the explosion site, and puts them together to give you the clue: Microfilm. This will also unlock the Skeletons In The Icebox Achievement. After you find all the clues, head to Superior Laundry Services to continue the case.
