A guide for L.A. Noire case The Fallen Idol. Follow this guide to find all the clues, answer all the questions correctly, and get a five-star rating.
This is your third and last Traffic Desk case. Head over to the Crash Site to get started.
At the Crash Site, the attending officer tells you what happened. Then it’s time to find some clues. Go down to the actual crash site, which is located below the cliff where you talk to the first officer. To get down there, you just have to follow the path on the east side of the cliff.
The coroner will have some evidence presented for you on the trunk of the car. You will find the clue: Underwear, and the clue: Letter from mother is in the purse next to underwear. You can take a look inside the car and at the license plate on the ground, but they don’t give you any clues. Go ahead and talk to the coroner, and he will give you the clue: Prop shrunken head. That’s all down here; it’s time to get some more information from the victim.
Head back up the hill and find victim June Ballard sitting in the back of an ambulance. Start asking questions:
- Doping allegation >> Choose “Doubt.” She’ll drop the name Mark Bishop.
- Injured female passenger >> Choose “Lie,” and use the clue: Underwear as evidence.
- Fake shrunken head >> Choose “Doubt.”
- Suspect ‘Mark Bishop’ >> Choose “Doubt.”
After finishing your questions, there’s not anything else to be found or learned at the Crash Site. Head over to the hospital to visit the other victim.
Central Receiving Hospital
Walk up to the receptionist at the Central Receiving Hospital, and she will tell you which room the girl is in. Before you go into the room, you can talk to the doctor in the hall to get the clue: Evidence of abuse. Then go into the girl’s room. You can update the clue: Evidence of abuse by looking at her chart at the foot of her bed. Then you can start to question the girl:
- Crash incident report >> Choose “Lie” and use the clue: Underwear as evidence.
- Contact with parents >> Choose “Lie” and use the clue: Letter from mother as evidence.
- Association with Bishop >> Choose “Doubt.”
- Evidence of criminal abuse >> Choose “Truth.” This will give you the clue: Mermaid.
After you question Jessica, walk out of the room, and there will be a brief cut-scene and you will need to tail June Ballard. Follow her car from a distance; if you get too close, you’ll blow your cover. Her car will pull up at a cafe. Use cover to hide by the door until she’s not looking around anymore. Then go sit at the booth with the newspaper to eavesdrop on her phone conversation. [If you successfully avoid detection during this part of the case, you should unlock the L.A. Noire The Shadow Achievement.]
This will give you the address to Bishop’s apartment. When she leaves, head out of the cafe and over to Bishop’s apartment.
