This victim reminds me of someone... Ah oui, he looks like my date from last Tuesday! What a body!
—Martine Meunier

Martine Meunier is a main character featured in Season 5 of Criminal Case, where she serves as the Chief Medical Examiner (Coroner) of the Grimsborough Police Department.

Profile

Hailing from France, Martine is 29 years old and worked as a model prior to her tenure to the department. She has green eyes, chin-length blonde hair with side bangs that is held neatly by a large carmine red headband, a small gap between her front teeth, and a beauty mark a bit beneath her right eye. She wears pink lipstick, carmine nail polish, black eyeshadow, a golden V necklace, and a white lab coat with a pocket that holds a pencil and a scalpel over a carmine red blouse with a sheer, black rim. She also has a tattoo of a moth on her chest that says “Death is nothing” in French underneath.

An aloof woman, Martine is especially interested in high fashion and men, the latter being the reason of her flirtatious and coy manner. She has a strange interest for the macabre, but is intolerant of impertinence.

Events of Criminal Case

Hell Is Other People

After arresting Elaine Seabrook's killer, Martine told Gloria and the player that her colleague from the emergency department had informed her of an unknown fatality at the steakhouse. While there was no sign of foul play, there was something off about it, so she was called to help. She, Gloria, and the player then went to the steakhouse to collect the body.

After Martine conducted the autopsy on the body, she found out that the man had died of a sudden cardiac arrest caused by an overdose of the blood pressure amlodipine. Prior to that, a shipment of amlodipine had been reported missing. However, Martine said that the high amount of amlodipine would not have killed the man alone; she said that the man needed to have ingested (most likely drunk) something that would multiply the drug's potency. Gloria and the player then left to find out more about the victim.

Later, Martine analyzed a sample of the Rocket Cow the man (identified as David O'Connell) drank from. Martine confirmed that the Rocket Cow was the activating agent, more specifically, the caffeine. However, she could not rule out the possibility of a suicide instead of a murder. When she reported her findings to Chief Parker, the chief reassigned the case to another precinct.

The Saddest of All Keys

Soon after investigating the death of Ian Devine, David's murder would turn out to be just the first reported of a string of deaths caused by the amlodipine-Rocket Cow mix, causing Martine to conclude that a serial killer was on the loose.

Flatline

After arresting Greg Gibbs's killer, Jasper Everett and the player came to Martine to ask her to treat an injury that Amir had sustained in the aftershock. After telling them that her stocks had been depleted by the earthquake, she suggested that they searched Dr. Gibbs's clinic for a stock of medication. Martine was then able to treat Amir with the medication that Jasper and the player had recovered.

Writer's Blocked

After arresting Reggie Liotta's killer, Gabriel and the player sought Martine's fashion advice so that Gabriel could pass as an affluent jet-setter to infiltrate The Higher Truth. She gave Gabriel some clothes and accessories to disguise him, which allowed him to infiltrate the cult.

Dead Men Tell No Tales

Shortly before the investigation, Martine suggested the team go diving underwater in order to find out who released the Demon Fish into Grimsborough waters. However, when the team started to go diving through a flooded street to reach a Xerdan cave so that they could investigate the Demon Fish, they came across the body of Joshua Gibson.

Mid-investigation, when Martine decided to go back diving underwater to explore more about the fish, one of the Demon Fish bit Martine and infected her with the neurotoxin, putting her at risk of death.

After arresting Joshua's killer, Rupert told the team that Martine's condition was rapidly deteriorating and she would die if he couldn't find a cure to the fish's neurotoxin. However, with the help of scientist Ernest Emerson and animal control agent Benjamin Fetcher, Rupert finished producing a cure to the fish's neutoroxin and then immediately administered the antidote to Martine. Luckily, Martine recovered and thanked Rupert and the player for saving her life. After that, Martine revealed that when she swam into the Xerdan cave, she saw Chief Parker's husband, Ray Parker, diving underwater. Martine then said that when Ray saw her, he swam away, and when she tried to swim after him, she was bitten by the Demon Fish. Chief Parker and the player then decided to come to ask Ray about this.

Final Cut

After arresting Cindy McMinn's killer, Martine accompanied the player to talk to Professor Luke Harris about Butcher Lake, the horror film in which Cindy was acting. Later, she and the player found the hard drive containing all the footage of the film, which (per Alex) showed that the crew just needed to film the final scene. The team then met student Sally Hooper and gave back her the hard drive. There, Sally suggested Martine to replace Cindy's role as she and Cindy shared some similarities. After agreeing to replace Cindy's role, Martine and the player headed to the makeup trailer to find the fake blood bags which served the film. Later, Gloria and the player came to the movie set to see Martine and Sally filming the final scene of the film.

Analyses

As the Chief Medical Examiner (Coroner) of the Grimsborough Police Department, Martine has the responsibility of carefully examining and analyzing each murdered corpse, and to inform the team of such results after a certain amount of time or a speed-up process using Criminal Case Cash. Her task-wait rates vary depending on the difficulty of the task, but they all cost 1 Criminal Case Cash per 30 minutes.
