Appears in Criminal Case
First appeared Case #34: Speak, Friend, and Die (s3)

Jackson Peters was the victim in Speak, Friend, and Die (Case #34 of World Edition).


Jackson was the director for the film septology "The Ringed Lord". He had brown hair and facial hair, and was wearing a tartan flannel shirt with a black coat and a director's cap at the time of his death.

Murder details

Jackson was found on the set of his new film with severe head trauma. While autopsying his body, Angela discovered a shark tooth embedded in Jackson's scalp. Jonah jumped in saying the murder weapon could be a maripi (a Maori tool used to cut flesh). The tooth had traces of pavlova, which meant the killer ate pavlova.

On the Rotorua geyser, the team found the maripi, which was filed as the murder weapon. The maripi had a white substance that, accoding to Lars' analysis, came from a special sunscreen designed to protect tattoos. This proved the killer had a tattoo.

Killer and motives

The killer turned out to be a rugby player named Jermaine Waaka.

After denying involvement, Jermaine admitted he killed Jackson. Jackson had filmed him taking steroids and used the footage to blackmail him into staying in the movie. Afraid of losing his career as a sportsman if the footage was leaked, Jermaine bashed Jackson’s head with a maripi. Judge Adaku sentenced him to 25 years in jail.
