First appeared Case #37: The Ship of Dreams (s2)

Fabrizio Gallardo was the victim in The Ship of Dreams (Case #37 of Pacific Bay).


Fabrizio was an artist of blue-collar standing with black hair and dark brown eyes. It is known that he knew Morse code.

Murder details

Fabrizio was found dead, floating in a pool with a flare shoved inside his right eye. The killer was reckless enough to leave the murder weapon (a flare gun) next to the corpse as Frank and the player managed to find it in no time. This registered the flare gun as the murder weapon although the player could not help but notice a blackish substance on the its hilt.

The player shipped the corpse to coroner Roxie for autopsy, but at the self-same instant, took samples of black grains to Yann for physical analysis. While Frank and the player waited for Roxie to finish her task, Yann was able to determine that the killer ate caviar before grabbing the flare gun to kill Fabrizio.

Roxie was able to determine that the flare punctured and melted Fabrizio's eyeball, causing the heat to reach his brain and killing him almost instantly. Also, she could not help but notice the amount of germs placed on the victim. It seemed that, although Fabrizio was healthy at the time of his death, the killer sneezed on him. Frank was wise to determine that the killer sustained a cold.

Killer and motives

The killer turned out to be actress Lizzie Dion.

As Frank and the player confronted Lizzie, she pretended that a false arrest was being made; however, after Frank stated out the killer's trail very cleverly, the actress confessed her guilt before claiming that she committed the crime only in revenge for Fabrizio impregnating her prior to the events of this case. She then proceeded to add details to her statement. Both Lizzie and Fabrizio loved each other, but the latter's low financial status – which was the reason as to why it took him months to buy plane tickets to Florence for the couple – made Lizzie regret for pretending that she could escape with Fabrizio in the first place. However, the wake-up call was when she found out about the couple's baby in her womb. Realizing that she had to do something to save her career, not to mention her engagement to Tyler Snakes, Lizzie killed Fabrizio to preserve her values. After the statement, Frank took some time to loathe Lizzie's disgusting act since her child would grow up an orphan now. Nonetheless, the player shipped the actress to trial right away.

In court, Lizzie stated before Judge Dante that her career in Ivywood was far more important than a getaway to Italy with Fabrizio. This prompted Dante to ask Lizzie if those third class tickets were the driving force behind her decision to kill Fabrizio, to which the actress replied that she had higher standards in spite of the artist impressing her with tickets to Italy. The motive seemed deceiving, but to conclude, Judge Dante simply issued a 20-year jail sentence for Lizzie.


  • Fabrizio may be an allusion to Jack Dawson from the 1997 film Titanic, which revolves around a fictionalized account of the sinking of the RMS Titanic. This is possible because, interestingly enough, the Gigantic liner featured in this case is itself a parody of the RMS Titanic.
    • He may also be an allusion to Jack Dawson's Italian companion in Titanic, also called Fabrizio.
