First appeared Case #47: Uncivil Rights (s2)

Mayor Annette Arbor was the victim in Uncivil Rights (Case #47 of Pacific Bay).


Annette was the mayor of Innovation Valley after winning the election against Howard Boehner. She had blonde hair and green eyes, and she wore a beige dress with a presidential sash on it. Additionally, she wore gold earrings and a robot necklace of the same color. She was also the mother of Colbie Arbor.

Murder details

Annette was found in the android graveyard crushed into a cube. The player and Frank came to the conclusion that she was crushed by her killer in the graveyard's car crusher. After sending her to Roxie, she managed to find a coin in the victim's mouth. Further analysis from Russell revealed the killer deliberately left it there and that both sides were the same. He managed to reveal a message from the killer saying, "You gambled and you lost". From there, the team managed to reveal the killer was a gambler.

Killer and motives

The killer turned out to be unemployed mechanic Larry Newark.

Mayor Arbor promised Larry a job to bail him out of unemployment, but her procrastination angered the mechanic as he expected promptness in his living situation. Larry tried to defend himself by claiming he never touched the Mayor, but Hannah was too good for Larry to defend himself. Confessing that he killed Mayor Arbor, he hated the fact that Mayor Arbor planned to have robots become citizens in which he believed was the last straw for the humans of Innovation Valley, as the Robot Act will only force humans out of the job and to allow robots the benefit of a doubt. Larry joined the Anti-Robot League to plead with Mayor Arbor to stand down on her pro-robot endeavor politically but the ARL virtually did nothing, so he had to do something to ensure Mayor Arbor wasn't ruining the lives of the humans--Larry grabbed a robotic arm, knocked Mayor Arbor down with it, fed the Mayor to the car crusher, and allowed the compactor to do the fatal job. Frank was sick and disgusted about Larry's choice of bloodshed, so the player shipped the unemployed mechanic to trial.

Judge Dante was curious as to why Larry killed Annette, in which he proclaimed that humans can't kill other humans as all humans have reason. Judge Dante didn't want to talk anymore, so originally he sentenced Larry to 25 years in prison, but increased it to 40 years at Larry's request.
