...I'm Alex! But you can call me the Digital God if you want to.
—Alex Turner

Alex Turner, first appearing as a main character—and the Tech Expert of the Grimsborough Police Department—in Season 1 of Criminal Case, is a recurring character in Season 5.

Appearance

At 29 years of age, Alex has neck-length brown hair, dark brown eyes, and a five o'clock shadow. He is seen wearing a pair of headphones around his neck, and a blue T-shirt reading "BEST DAD".

During his time in the police force, Alex would don a gray hoodie with a white pixel art on the right and a breast pocket—consisting of three pens and a USB stick—on the left.

Events of Criminal Case

Season 1

Main article: Grimsborough

In The Reaper and the Geek, Jones allowed Alex to partner with the player mid-investigation due to him holding a high-interest in sci-fi and geeky topics.

In Marked for Death, Alex went on a date with Chief King's granddaughter, Cathy King, much to the Chief's disapproval. The date did not go well, however; Alex accidentally spilled wine all over Cathy's laptop at dinner and then nearly drove over her cat when he dropped her home.

CathyAlexKissing

Alex and Cathy sharing a kiss.

In There Will Be Blood, Cathy had to be detained until the end of the investigation when Jones and the player found traces of her hair in the victim's scalp. Alex's mutual affection for Cathy made him condemn her arrest as he firmly believed that she was and should be innocent. Cathy, however, remained calm and agreed to be taken away and locked up until her innocence could be proven, but not before the two shared an impromptu kiss.

After arresting Milton Grimmes for the murder, the player accepted a position into the Pacific Bay Police Department, but not before accepting a farewell party thrown by Cathy and fellow members of the Grimsborough Police. Alex thanked the player, commenting on how he never would have met Cathy if it were not for the player.

Season 5

Main article: The Conspiracy

Snake in the Grass

Some time after the player left for Pacific Bay, Cathy and Alex married. Cathy also gave birth to their son, Sammy Turner. Cathy also applied for the position of tech expert in the police department and with her on the job, Alex resigned to take care of Sammy at home.

When the player returned to the police department, Cathy and Alex were one of the first to welcome the player back to Grimsborough.

The Saddest of All Keys

As Alex was a big fan of The Henge, he became disheartened when Cathy informed him of Ian Devine's death. Later, after Ian's killer was arrested, Cathy and the player took Alex with them before going to the airport so he could meet the band's bassist, Boris Chiswick. Alex was speechless, but later was able to say that Boris was his inspiration to make music. Boris later gave him an autograph.

Analyses

Season 1

As the (now-former) Tech Expert of the Grimsborough Police Department, Alex had the responsibility of taking care of all the necessary technical analyses, and to inform the team of such results after a certain amount of time or a speed-up process using Criminal Case Cash. His task-wait rates varied depending on the difficulty of the task, but they would all cost 1 Criminal Case Cash per 30 minutes.
