Events of Criminal Case
Christy was first interrogated after Jack and the player identified her on a picture with the victim. She was saddened at hearing the victim's death, and said they dated for a while but broke up. She felt she needed to concentrate on her studies as that was the reason why she was in Morocco in the first place. When Jack asked if they met up after that, she did say they would meet up at the souk, but it became awkward when they tried to talk to each other.
Jack and the player had to talk with Christy again after finding a ring engraved to her in a tagine dish at the souk. She did not bring it up because she did not think it was such a big deal, but Jack brought up how it was found in a tagine dish. Christy said that she and Adam were having a fight in the souk, so she took off the ring and threw it. When Jack asked what they were fighting about, Christy said she found out that Adam slept with other women, and it broke her heart.
In the end, the evidence pointed to Christy as the one who killed Adam. At first, Christy had denied killing Adam, but then, she confessed to committing his murder when Jack told her she was a main suspect in Chief Ripley's murder. However, Christy told the team that she had only killed Adam, not the chief. She explained that she had heard of the dart and tried to lead the team to believe that both murders were a connection to the same killer. When asked why she killed Adam, Christy replied that Adam not only cheated on her, but he had also gotten drunk and told her he would remind her why they were good together when they dated. Christy refused to let her ex-boyfriend go through with that, and Adam left as if nothing had happened. Feeling sorry for the foreign student, Jack sent her to trial.
Christy pleaded guilty for the murder of Adam, saying he deserved it; she had explained that Adam would have continued to get away with his actions due to his diplomatic immunity. As a violation in that manner is vile and would be duly punished, but also due to the trauma the student had experienced, Judge Adaku sentenced Christy to 10 years in prison.
With Adam’s murder solved, Ingrid told the team to focus on Ripley’s murder. The administrative assistant ordered Jack and the player to interrogate Christy in order to figure out how she got the idea for using the dart. Christy explained that the dart and the pipe had just appeared inside her bag as she came home from a class one afternoon. She claimed that she had never put the darts in the bag and thought that someone else had dropped them in the bag while she was shopping at the souk. Christy further explained to Jack that there was a note inside the bag, saying “What kills a chief, kills an ex, and no one will be the wiser.” However, the student threw the note out. Jack and the player were prompted to investigate the souk again to find a ripped package of the poisoned darts, the same darts used to kill Adam and Ripley.
- Christy is one of the killers who are interrogated once more during the Additional Investigation.
