Events of Criminal Case

Beatrice was the wife of the late Opera director, Roland Vane.

Beatrice was the Opera employee who informed Jones and the player about the murder in the Opera, specifically in the dressing room. After Roland's corpse was sent for autopsy, Beatrice told the team that neither herself nor Roland should have moved to Grimsborough as she thought the city was bad luck. The Vanes were in Grimsborough for only six months, never made any friends, and the murder was evidence that the Vanes already made enemies. Beatrice wanted to ask Roland about her performance for "Madama Serpent" but was locked from the outside, so she was forced to look at the scene in which Roland was killed by the giant boa. This meant that the killer had to be an Opera employee otherwise the murder would not ensue.

The team wanted to talk to Beatrice inside the dressing room, and wondered whether or not Roland relied on sleeping pills as they found traces of sleeping pill medication on Roland's tea, in which Beatrice said that he was against sleeping pills. Beatrice even told the team about the stress Opera workers had to put up with day and night, felt that the Opera was her life, but was in a lot of pain due to her husband being murdered on Opera grounds.

At the climax of the investigation, it was proven that Annabel Stewart was the one who conducted the murder. Although it may seem that Roland's choice to star Beatrice was an act of nepotism at first, it was an act of impatience that drove Annabel to murder the husband of Beatrice Vane. With Annabel caught for the murder, Beatrice was found innocent, although the police wanted to make sure Beatrice was OK. In the hours following Annabel's detainment, Gerald Riverton was found by the police to have tampered with Beatrice's harpsichord and wondered if Beatrice wanted to press charges against Gerald. Beatrice said not to do so as there were bigger fishes to fry.
