Go to the Crime Scene to get started on the case. When you arrive, a brief cut-scene will introduce you to the crime scene. Go talk to the coroner to get more information. Then investigate the body to get clues. Investigate the head to get the clue: Blunt force trauma. Investigate the victim’s left hand to get the clue: Missing jewelry.

Look around the crime scene for other clues. Behind the body, at marker C, you will find the clue: Size 8 shoe prints. Leaving marker C, to the right of the victim at marker A, you will find the victim’s purse and the clue: Lipstick. Moving counter-clockwise to marker B, you find an object that looks like a globe.

This is the last clue at the crime scene and the only lead you have. Go to the Bamba Club to continue the case.
The Bamba Club

- Suspect seen with victim >> Choose “Truth.” McColl will give you the clue: License Plate 2B 8899. This will unlock the L.A. Noire Round Heels Achievement.
- Ring stolen from victim >> Choose “Doubt.”
- Knowledge of husband >> Choose “Doubt,” and you’ll get the clue: Husband’s alibi.
The Henry Residence
When you arrive at the Henry residence, you discover that no one is home and it looks like someone has “creeped the joint.” After the cut-scene, go inside and start looking for clues. Almost as soon as you walk in the door there is a newspaper on the floor. In the dinning room you by the window you find the clue: Female shoe. From there, walk to the back of the house to the broken window to find the clue: Forced entry. Behind you on the refrigerator is a note. It won’t give you a clue, but it gives you a new objective to investigate Jacob Henry’s Apartment. After you share some words with your partner, you get the objective to canvas the neighbors, but you’ll want to investigate the bedroom first. The bedroom is on the opposite side of the house from the kitchen. Look on the dresser to find an empty ring box which will update the clue: Missing jewelry. That’s all you’ll find inside the house.
Head outside to talk to the neighbor. She should be close to the stone fence between the Henry Residence and the neighbor’s house, kind of towards the back. You will talk with her for a minute, and she will give you the clue: Marital problems. That’s the last clue at the Henry Residence. Now head over to Jacob Henry’s Apartment.
