A Deadly Game (Case #20) is the twentieth case of the game.

Case Background

The victim was a man called Steve Wood. The killer was the twin of Harper McAlister (Jezabela's vassal), Tyler McAlister.

Tyler was a psychopath and wanted to kill someone. He knew that Steve lived in a homeless camp in Cooperville and that he had recently got out of prison, and therefore, Tyler took full advantage of it. He told Steve that he would help him to get back on his feet. The two met and Tyler took Steve to a creepy basement, where he tortured the victim, cut off his fingers, ripped out and ate his liver, and finally killed him using an iron maiden, an old torture instrument. He then spread the fingers in different locations before the team found Steve's body (for Nathan to autopsy) in the torture basement in the last minute.

Tyler's manner of manslaughter horrified Grimsborough anew, and the Judge sentenced him to life imprisonment with no chance for parole.
