Appears in Criminal Case
First appeared Case #26: Dead in the Water (s3)

Lǐ Jūn (Chn: 黎君) was the victim in Dead in the Water (Case #26 of World Edition).


Jun was a worker for an adoption agency. She had black hair, brown eyes, and wore an olive green shirt and a black skirt at the time of her death. It is known that she had a daughter named Li Ying.

Murder details

Jun was found at the lotus bridge with her body floating in the river. According to Angela, the body showed signs of fighting shortly before her death. But what caused her instantaneous death was a blow to the head with a blunt object. It was dumped into the river afterward by the killer, who probably thought it would flow the body away. She managed to find traces of soot and animal glue on the victim's collar, which are ingredients in calligraphy ink. This meant that the killer practiced calligraphy.

After the player and Jack investigated a restaurant the victim visited often, they came across a jade vase covered in blood. Lars confirmed the blood belonged to the victim, which meant the vase was the murder weapon. He also managed to find germ-inflicted droplets on it, meaning that the killer sneezed on it. This meant the killer had a cold.

Killer and motives

The killer turned out to be an American artist named Ellen Morowitz.

Ellen denied involvement but admitted to the crime when Jack pointed all evidence towards her. Jun had denied Ellen’s adoption application in the past as she considered her unstable, ruining her desires of being a mother. Ellen was pushed to her limit when she met Jun in Sichuan and the latter did not even remember her.

On the court, Judge Adaku issued Ellen a 20 year jail sentence for murdering Jun and showing no remorse about it.
