First appeared Case #10: I Spy a Mummy (s3)

Afif Wahab (Arab: عفيف وهاب) was the victim in I Spy a Mummy (Case #10 of World Edition).


Afif was a hitman going undercover as a fruit vendor. He had short black hair, brown eyes, and a mustache. At the time of his death, he was wearing a light blue shirt.

Murder details

Afif was found in an Egyptian tomb mummified with fresh blood coming from his nose. According to Angela, the victim died due to mummification, where his brain was pulled out through his nose with a hook, while still alive. She told the player and Jack to keep an eye out for an ancient metal hook, as that may be the murder weapon. She also found traces of cyanoglucosides, which was transferred from pickled turnips through pink brine on the victim. This meant that the killer ate pickled turnips.

After a second investigation of the 1002 Nights hookah bar, they managed to find a metal hook covered in blood. A red substance from the hook was extracted and sent to Lars, and he confirmed it was red lipstick. Jack suspected the killer kissed the hook for good luck, which meant that Afif's killer wore lipstick.

Killer and motives

The killer turned out to be the minister of antiquities named Zarah Salah.

Denying the evidence at first, Zarah claimed that she simply wanted to catch the victim red-handed for stealing artifacts; however, Jack lambasted her by revealing that she had tracked the victim and lured him to the pyramid with a hookah pipe. When the elite force agent finished his summary of the evidence he and the player had collected, Zarah admitted to the crime, but she claimed that she had to do it because she had exposed herself as a thief. She continued to tell the player that no one knew what kinds of artifacts were in the tombs, and if she were to steal them, no one would miss them either. Zarah tried to bribe him with money, but Afif would not leave and clung to his fruit vending persona. With that said, Jack shipped Zarah to trial.

Judge Adaku believed that Zarah had abused her power as the Minister of antiquities to smuggle the artifacts out of the tomb. With the pleasure of locking up a corrupted government official, he sentenced Zarah to 50 years in prison for the attempted mummification and successful murder of Afif Wahab as well as for the theft of precious artifacts.
