A Crime Like No Udder is a case featured in Criminal Case as the forty-fourth case of The Conspiracy (Season 5) and the two-hundred seventy-fifth case overall. It takes place in the Spring Fields district of Grimsborough.

Plot

Jones and the player went to the cattle farm early to investigate the two agriculture companies GrimFoods and AgriMeadows, only to find the body of cheesemaker Debby Gideon with her skull shattered and her chest branded.

Mid-investigation, the team had to evacuate the GrimFoods cheesemaking facility with CEO Fabian Roland-Tavin after an explosion occurred. Later, cattle farmer Joey Beaty rescued the team from a cow stampede. However in the end, they found enough clues to incriminate fellow cheesemaker Tallulah Shropshire for the murder.

Admitting to the murder, Tallulah said that she had a crush on Father Paul Sheppard, but knew it could not be because of his vow of celibacy. However, when she noticed that Paul was starting to have desires for Debby, Tallulah remembered how Debby had stolen her boyfriend from her in their youth. Thinking of Debby as a "man-stealing cow", Tallulah shattered her skull with a cattle bolt and branded her like a cattle. Judge Powell sentenced her to 37 years in prison.

Post-trial, Mia Loukas recommended to player and Gloria to visit Father Sheppard, who told the team that Fabian had contacted him to ask for a briefcase he had left behind in the church. The team found the briefcase, which (per Cathy) contained files detailing a strategy wherein they would burn down the corn crops and sell a stock of corn seedlings at a lower price in order to create a monopoly on the corn in the district. The team confronted Fabian, who claimed that GrimFoods had acquired the files from AgriMeadows, meaning that AgriMeadows wanted to monopolize the corn supply and thus was allied with "Fornax".

Meanwhile, the player helped Rita give Martine an Eiffel tower sculpted out of cheese (with help from Amir and Jasper Everett) before accompanying Rita and Martine to the rodeo per Martine's request for an American birthday celebration. After all the events, the team resolved to go to the AgriMeadows offices and demand answers from their CEO.
