Murder-Go-Round is a case featured in Criminal Case, appearing as the seventy-first case of the game and the fifteenth case of Pacific Bay. It takes place in Inner City, a district based in Pacific Bay.
During the investigation, Nikolai's son, Andrew, was kidnapped. Blaming the Chinese community for the abduction, Nikolai held Sue Xiong at gunpoint and threatened to kill her, but was arrested in time. Meanwhile, Russell deduced that Odette's killer and Andrew's kidnapper were the same person. The team found enough evidence to arrest Tammy Baker, Andrew's nanny.
After denying involvement, Tammy admitted to the accusations. Odette resented Andrew for the end of her ballet career, and as such, she neglected his health. When she found out that Odette refused to vaccinate Andrew, Tammy slipped a big dose of blood thinner in her coffee. After confirming her death, Tammy took Andrew to her apartment to keep him safe. The team found Andrew and then arrested Tammy, who was sentenced to life in jail by Judge Dante.
Post-trial, someone reported an incident in Nikolai's house. As Nikolai refused to say a word, the team investigated the house to find a picture which proved that Nikolai and Sue were friends at high school.
Meanwhile, Hannah was told that some Inner Chaos members were seen at the playground, which they investigated to find a phone. Per Hannah, the phone proved that Inner Chaos and Sergei Yablokov, Nikolai's second in command, were doing business. Sergei said that the organization contacted him but he was not interested in them.
