Events of Criminal Case
Howard found himself in trouble after Amy and the player found an Aztec statue with a note affixed with the message, "If I'm dead, ask that damn professor!" written on it. Digital intervention courtesy of Hannah was required before Howard was sent to questioning for the first time, but not without notating about a feud Dr. Haggard had with Burt prior to the interrogation.
All Howard wanted was to keep the Aztec statue out of Burt's reach, but Amy told the professor that the player found the Aztec statue in the temple, but before Amy informed Howard that the statue would be held as evidence, Howard stated that the statue was a sign of an apocalypse, much to Amy's disbelief. Knowing Aztec, Howard believed that anyone tampering the statue will bring upon Earth's apocalypse in spite of Burt's beliefs of the Aztec statue being valuable treasure and was meant to be left in the Aztec temple, something Amy was not willing to take.
Howard would be interrogated a second time after Amy and the player found sticks of dynamite intended to blow up the Aztec temple, in which the player could not help but notice hair on the dynamite sticks. Yann had to go through the trouble of confirming the hairs to be Howard's before Amy and the player interrogated the mad professor a second time, in which Amy was unsure as to why a professor would detonate an ancient temple.
Amy thought Dr. Haggard was crazy for attempting to blow up an ancient temple but he had to use dynamite to stop Burt from retrieving the Aztec statue. Burt retaliated by threatening to revoke his PhD from his credentials if he did not stop following the archaeologist, but in spite of Howard being a strong suspect, he was found innocent.
