Leap of Death is a case featured in Criminal Case, appearing as the eighty-first case of the game. It is the twenty-fifth case of Pacific Bay and the first one to take place in the White Peaks district.
Previously on Criminal Case, Chief Marquez transferred the team to White Peaks which reported escalating crime rates. Amy wanted to tour the player around her hometown by to taking them to the Frosty Cup. The sports event was stopped when ski jumper Anjulie Cruz was sliced in half after she jumped off a ramp to start the first ever Women's Ski Jump event. Roxie said that a taut wire was added to the end of the ramp. When Anjulie jumped off, the wire sliced her in half.
After the cops gathered enough evidence and Amy interrogated her ex-lover Bobby Prince, they were able to incriminate International Skiing Association president Sven Blattner for the murder. Sven said that he killed Anjulie to stop the Women's Ski Jump event because he did not want women to participate in the sport event. Sven told Judge Dante that he took a stand for athletics as a true act of heroism intended for men only and that the victim had threatened to sue him. The judge sentenced Sven to 25 years in jail.
Post-indictment, Amy introduced the player to her wheelchair-bound brother Duncan Young, who was a former police officer. Amy and the player also checked up on Sharon White who claimed that someone was harassing her. Sharon complained that the Night Walker was her harasser. With Sharon's goggles, they were able to pinpoint Claire Cambridge, a fellow skier, to be the one who was sabotaging Sharon. However, Claire denied stalking Sharon and using the guise of the Night Walker, so the team decided to keep their eyes out for the Night Walker.
