First appeared Case #25: Leap of Death (s2)

Anjulie Cruz was the victim in Leap of Death (Case #25 of Pacific Bay).


Anjulie was a popular ski jumper until her demise at the first ever Woman's Ski Jump event in the Frosty Cup. She had long brown hair, brown eyes, and wore a purple jumpsuit with a pit of yellow below her chest.

Murder details

Amy's enjoyment of the Frosty Cup was ruined after the player witnessed Anjulie sliced in half as she jumped off the ski ramp, grounds for the team to treat the murder as being premeditated. The player did not hesitate to send Anjulie to Roxie for autopsy.

After tedious hours of autopsy, Roxie took account of Anjulie's speed and as such stated that only a wire would be a plausible weapon given that Anjulie was sliced to death at the end of the ramp. The player did not see the wire while they were watching Anjulie jump as Amy deduced the killer pulled the wire from the scene following Anjulie's death. Besides that, Roxie could not help but notice a unique substance where Anjulie was pried in half: highly refined oil. This oil was used to make vehicles resistant to extreme temperatures, in which snow mobiles came to Roxie's mind. Roxie deduced that the killer used snow mobile oil to grease the wire on the ski ramp to make it virtually invisible. Roxie's finding suggested that the killer owned a snow mobile.

On the second visit to the ski ramp, Amy and the player found a barbed wire inside a box of merchandise, but Amy was not sure if that was the wire used for the premeditated murder, so it was given to Roxie for a second opinion. Roxie did not have a difficult time confirming as she noticed that the killer wiped the blood off the wire to cover their tracks, but managed to catch traces of snow mobile oil shared with the victim, registering the wire as the murder weapon.

Killer and motives

The killer turned out to be International Skiing Association president Sven Blattner.

Amy informed Sven about the apparatus he used to seal Anjulie's fate, much to Amy's beliefs of females having an equal chance for a medal in the Frosty Cup. Sven made it clear that he's a sexist and that he hated the idea of women being in ski jumping as he recalled during his time ski jumping and the Frosty Cup were serious sports for men only before he was forced to include a women's segment of the sporting event. Sven competed in the Frosty Cup when he was younger but failed to garnish a medal, and as such, allowing women to land a medal in the Frosty Cup would be out of the question on his watch. Amy and the player turned Sven to face trial before Judge Dante.

Sven told the court that winter sports were meant for males for centuries as a true test of heroism but stood tall with his two feet during his testimony. Sven hated the fact he had to make ski ramps safer to accommodate women, which he believed would be a waste in the ISA's budget, causing Sven to believe that there's no more glory in winter sports. What drove Sven to murder was that Anjulie threatened to sue the ISA for alleged sexism unless he allowed women in the Frosty Cup, but Judge Dante told Sven that gender discrimination does not pay under any circumstances. Sven was thus sentenced to 25 years in jail for the premeditated murder of Anjulie and promoting sexism in winter sports.
