Events of Criminal Case

Season 1

Main article: Grimsborough


In The Grim Butcher, Ramirez came in to inform the player that suspect Vanessa Carter was ready for questioning, and handed the victim's backpack to the player for examination purposes. Later on, he found out the foot sizes of some of the suspects in the case. Finding out attributes for the player's investigation would later be his niche.

The Ghost of Grimsborough

Ramirez got frightened and started believing that The Mad Pilgrim's (a painting) ghost had killed Wilhelm Moss. He kept on acting weird and started to believe that there really was a ghost in Grimsborough. To calm him down and make him relax, Chief King sent Ramirez on a vacation. Ramirez then returned from his holiday in The Summoning.

Dog Eat Dog

Ramirez filled in as the player's partner from Chapter 3 up until the end of the Additional Investigation after Jones was incapacitated, due to being poisoned by a rigged cupcake that he ate.

The Rorschach Reaper

After Madison Springer's tiara exploded and killed her, Ramirez tried to ensure that nobody would escape from the crime scene. Later on, he went back and hit Jones's head with a frying pan during Tess Goodwin's arrest as the hypnotized Jones was getting ready to kill the player.

Burying the Hatchet

Ramirez was held captive by Keanu Ashokan at the Aloki Settlement. Ramirez started panicking and somehow managed to give a phone call to the team which indicated them to go to the trailer park. The team soon arrived at the Aloki Settlement and there, they saw Keanu holding Ramirez in a headlock and pointing a gun to his head. The team then warned Keanu, who still did not want to drop the gun since Ramirez wanted to send him to a juvenile offenders' home. However, he did not kill Ramirez, but just fired a bullet through his hat and fled. He did this so that he could distract the team and run away. The team then approached Ramirez, who was holding Keanu's Grim Gas employee badge which he had ripped off from Keanu's clothes during the struggle.

There Will Be Blood

Ramirez crying much

Ramirez crying in sorrow during the player's farewell.

Ramirez played a short but major role in putting an end to The Crimson Order and saving the player's life when the team was finally arresting the secret society's leader, Milton Grimmes. After completing his boasting about how he could declare himself a dictator and a God, Milton attempted to kill the player with his handgun. Fortunately, Ramirez intervened by hitting Milton with his frying pan—mirroring the saving move he demonstrated back when the team arrested Tess Goodwin. Few days after the closure of this case, the team threw a farewell party for the player as the player was leaving for Pacific Bay after accepting a promotion to its police force. Ramirez could not bear the fact that the player had to leave them all, and thus cried in sorrow a few many times but at last happily and proudly bade goodbye to the player.

Eastern Promises

Private Detective Ramirez

Ramirez, moments after reuniting with the player.

Not too long after closing the case, Frank and the player came across Ramirez, disguised as a giant pineapple, while helping out a 12-year-old pickpocket named Ahmet. Ramirez promptly unmasked himself, before asking in excitement if the player remembered him. He went on to clarify that he was not part of the Grimsborough Police anymore, saying Grimsborough did not feel the same to him without the player, which prompted him to move to Pacific Bay as soon as he got the opportunity. He then took out a badge to reveal that he was now a private detective, offering to provide the player with help anytime he was called up.


Ramirez came to Frank and the player to seek help in finding his lost notebook at the Saint Patrick's Day parade. He explained that he had been hired by a big hospital to run a background check on Dr. Mark McKenzie, a crooked surgeon, and that the notebook contained vital information relating to Dr. McKenzie. After recovering the notebook for him from a pile of leftovers, the player shipped the notebook to Hannah for analysis. Hannah managed to confirm that Dr. McKenzie was guilty of harvesting illicit money to meet his ends.

Under the Skin

Mid-investigation, Ramirez came into the police station to inform Frank and the player that he was on an undercover mission at the Chinese festival when he got lost in a back alley which led him to an illegal operating room filled with human organs. His discovery of the operating room ultimately led the team to solve the case.

The White Peaks Project

Ramirez was on an undercover mission before being interrupted by Frank and the player, who wanted to ask him if he could find out which of their suspects demonstrated dependence on sleeping pills, which happened to be one of the killer's attributes. He agreed to help, and would eventually assist the team in bringing forth the killer to justice.


Ramirez, now hired to investigate relics and antiques trafficking in Pacific Bay, helped the team retrieve a stolen rare diamond, which would ultimately lead to the arrest of Rico Damascus and Velma Bannister for plotting the theft.

Deadly Legacy

Amy asked for Ramirez's help in finding out which of their suspects used bath salts, which happened to be a tricky piece of the killer's profile. Ramirez had to rely on a lion's suit to fulfill Amy's request, which somehow worked.

Death by Martini

Ramirez was arrested for trespassing mid-investigation, but cooperated with Frank and the player stating that evidence might be lost during the clean-up of the wedding chapel where a couple was recently married. Therefore, the player and Frank took Ramirez's advice for granted.

Season 5

Main article: The Conspiracy

Snake in the Grass

While reconvening in the middle of the investigation into the murder of Nathan, Jones suddenly felt the presence of someone watching them. Ramirez appeared from behind the newspaper and greeted the player, saying he wanted to surprise them. Jones said that Ramirez had come back from his stint in Pacific Bay as a private investigator and had since helped as the Grimsborough Police Department's consultant. Ramirez expressed pride at his honed skills and asked the team to let him know if he could be of any help.


As the Consultant of the Grimsborough Police Department, Ramirez has the responsibility of analyzing handwritings, messages and photographs that do not require digital, physical, clinical, anatomic, technical or psychological analysis, and to inform the team of such results after a certain amount of time or a speed-up process using Criminal Case Cash. His task-wait rates vary depending on the difficulty of the task, but they all cost 1 Criminal Case Cash per 30 minutes.

Below is the list of analyses Ramirez performs throughout the course of the game:

Case #1: Snake in the Grass

  • Old Photo (09:00:00)
  • Nathan's Diary (06:00:00)

Case #2: Hell Is Other People

  • Envelope (12:00:00)

Case #5: Too Cruel for School

  • Legal Letter (09:00:00)


The player may choose Ramirez to join the investigation of each crime scene (in any case in Grimsborough or The Conspiracy) and provide hint bonuses. He is available as a 2-hint partner. (This feature is only available in the mobile variant of Criminal Case.)
