Good Girls Don't Die is a case featured in Criminal Case, appearing as the forty-eighth case of the game as well as the city of Grimsborough. It takes place in Maple Heights, a district based in Grimsborough.
Although the player was hailed for keeping Maple Heights safe, Chief King ordered Jones to go on filing duty since his name kept on popping up in complaints, as his tactless manner (rudeness) was frowned upon by the district, forcing Jones to remain in the sidelines for the entire case.
On the other hand, Grace requested the player to help her out at the beauty parlor due to a bloodcurdling scream at the treatment rooms. An angry Martha Price demanded the player to investigate the treatment room as her daughter, Abigail Price, was inside it. Once in the treatment room, Abigail was found burned to death in a beauty salon during a beauty appointment (with a hole showing her exposed rib cage), confirming Abigail to be the victim. In shock, Martha fainted and was rushed to the hospital. After confirming Abigail to be the victim, Grace filled-in as the player's partner in Jones's place for this case.
The killer turned out to be Abigail's best friend, Sabrina Kingston. Sabrina testified that she believed she was on drugs because Veronica Johnson sold them to her, though Grace countered that the "drugs" Veronica sold were actually a mixture of caffeine and talc. Sabrina needed Abigail's help to give her a urine sample as all top colleges (including Harvard and the University of Grimsborough) enforced applicant drug tests and Sabrina was afraid of having her test come up positive. But Abigail refused to help and Sabrina got mad, as she had kept it a a secret that Abigail had had an abortion to protect her mother's political career.
During a beauty appointment of Abigail's, Sabrina crept into the treatment room to intimidate her by pointing a hair removal laser on her and thought that if she threatened to kill Abigail, she would give her a urine sample for her to pass the university's drugs checking mechanism. But accidentally, the hair removal laser fired a laser beam at Abigail's chest by itself thus burning a hole through Abigail's chest, which contributed to the murder being linked to a crumpled friendship due to excessive differences.
In the court, Sabrina pleaded guilty to first-degree murder and claimed to have lost herself, but Judge Hall countered that there was nothing worth killing a friendship over. Sabrina was sentenced to 20 years in jail with a chance for parole in 10 years, and although she was not told that she would be tried as an adult, the sentence Sabrina had to serve made it obvious that she was tried as an adult.
