Events of Criminal Case
Darren first became a suspect after Carmen and the player found a notepad that revealed that he and the victim had a rather late meeting. He was shocked that Constance was dead and said that their late meetings were regular for them. He felt her death was a tragedy for the company, wondering what they were going to do now that Constance was dead. Darren had to cut the interrogation short, saying he needed to alert the rest of Lion Dot Holdings of Constance's death.
Darren had to be interrogated again about the victim's reward that he defaced. He admitted he drank too much and wrote his name on the award because he felt it should have been his. He wanted to be the head of the victim's company, saying he worked more than the victim. When Carmen proposed he killed Constance to become CEO, Darren said that was not how it worked in the business world, but felt the company would go in the right direction with him at the helm.
Darren was later revealed to be innocent after the team incarcerated Anbu Devanesan for Constance's murder.
