Events of Criminal Case
Johan was first interrogated after the player and Carmen found a storybook with his and the victim's names in it. He was shocked to hear of Hans' death and said that they were friends when they were younger. They last saw each other 15 years ago since Hans was becoming a movie star and Johan had military training to do. Carmen was surprised that Johan still held on to that book, but Johan said it had some good stories, then proceeded to mention the story about the Black Forest. According to the legend, those who enter the Black Forest are never seen again. Carmen took that as a potential threat and warned Johan not to make another one.
Johan was spoken to again regarding an incident that occurred involving the disappearance of his brother, Christophe. According to Dupont, it was Christophe's sudden vanishing that spawned the legend of the Black Forest. Johan asked how the story was relevant to the murder investigation, to which Carmen replied saying that the victim was with him and his brother on the day in question. Johan said the three of them used to go hunting together and Johan left to grab his radio, but when he returned his brother was gone. He and the victim searched high and low, but they could not find him. He blamed Hans for the death of his brother as it was his job to protect Christophe, but he ran off to hunt a buck.
In the end, the evidence pointed to Johan as the culprit behind Hans' murder. Johan believed that true friends keep secrets locked within, but when Hans opted to tell Mayor Nagel the truth before Bierburg, he was not too thrilled about what Hans planned for Oktoberfest. Johan's secret was that his brother was murdered years before Hans became a famous movie star--to which Johan claimed he killed him by accident. Johan buried his brother, and Hans promised not to tell anyone albeit he lied in front of Johan. Johan had to silence Hans before he had a chance to spill the beans at the Bierburg Oktoberfest. Carmen told Johan that the town should not be afraid of a legend; they should be afraid of him. The player shipped Schnee to Judge Adaku for trial.
Johan told Judge Adaku that the Promethians had told him that Hans was going to reveal his secret, so he had no choice but to kill him. Johan got 25 years in jail with no parole for homicide, but like the last case and the case before, an audit was necessary.
The local authorities requested that they have help finding the body of Johan's brother, Christophe. Johan went through the whole story and said that his brother was buried in an old well in the Black Forest. A body was found, and Angela confirmed that the body belonged to Christophe. However, she managed to discover that Johan did not kill his brother. The impact wound and angle of the arrow showed he was shot by a left-handed archer, and Johan is right-handed. She looked into Hans' records and discovered that he was left-handed, and she also found traces of his DNA on the tip of the arrow, proving that Hans killed Christophe, not Johan. He was infuriated learning that Hans tricked him like that, but was happy to know he was innocent of his brother's murder. Carmen reminded him that he was still responsible for killing Hans, but that did not matter to him.
