Events of Criminal Case

Snake in the Grass

Shortly after arresting Nathan Pandit's killer, the player met up with Gloria, who was also on her first day in the police force. She introduced herself, saying she was from Chicago and was excited for a smaller town like Grimsborough. She also mentioned that she moved in order to get closer to her son Carter, who Gloria's recently divorced husband and Grimsborough resident Jake Hayes had custody over. She then asked the player if they could accompany her in finding a birthday gift for Carter in the zoo's gift shop.

While there, Gloria and the player found a DVD of CCN's "Grimsborough: A Year in Review". From the DVD, they found out that a satellite had crashed into Grimsborough a year ago, but fortunately, nobody was harmed. Having just found out about the incident, and shocked by it, Gloria turned to Jones, who clarified that a commercial satellite had suffered a technical difficulty and crashed into the empty forest. He also said that people had mostly forgotten about it by now.

Too Cruel for School

After arresting Vicky Lopez's killer, Gloria and Carter engaged in a fake fight outside of Fairview High School in order to lure out the Rocket Cow Killer. Gloria, equipped with a panic button and a wireless tracker, was then kidnapped by the Rocket Cow Killer at the drive-in theater.

Hear My Cry

Gloria became a suspect after she was rescued by Jones and the player at the scene of Edward Ramis's murder. When Jones questioned her, she told them that after she was attacked at the drive-in theater, she woke up in the forest, tied up, next to Edward's body. She then told them that if they needed any field work to be done, she would be glad to do it as she wanted to help catch the killer.

Gloria was spoken to again about a newspaper article which revealed that she had once killed a police suspect. She told them that, during a robbery in Chicago, the suspect had a gun and shot her partner's ear off. She then shot the robber in self-defense, which is why it was expunged off her police records. Jones was dismayed by Gloria keeping it a secret from the team and told her that they couldn't use her help in the investigation.

Gloria was found to be innocent after the team incarcerated Rosamund Wilcox for Edward's murder and the eleven other murders she had committed as the Rocket Cow Killer.
