Murder on Campus Dead Man Running

Killing Me Softly is a case featured in Criminal Case, appearing as the thirty-third case of the game as well as the city of Grimsborough. It takes place at the University, a district based in Grimsborough.

Plot

The victim was the lead singer of Lone Roses, Olly Oliver, who was poisoned with strychnine, and was found dead, encased in a drum on the concert stage with a sardonic grin on his face. The killer turned out to be the band's groupie, Mary Lou Hong.

Olly had promised Mary Lou, who kept herself as his secret admirer, that he would leave the Lone Roses and that they would form a musical band as a duo. Mary Lou had also written a few songs for the duo, but then one day, when she revealed herself as Olly's secret admirer, the victim rejected and mocked her. Olly then stole her song and performed it on stage with the Lone Roses. Mary Lou could not bear it and poisoned her former idol with strychnine and stuffed him inside the band's drum after the concert ended. After killing Olly, Mary Lou photographed the victim's dead body and kept the photo with herself so that she could always remember what she did.

Mary Lou was sentenced to 35 years in jail with no chance of parole. Following the closure of the case, Jones says that he has tickets for a football game next week between the Grimsborough Quails and the Wippeka Armadillos.
