Murder on the Dance Floor is a case featured in Criminal Case as the fifteenth case of The Conspiracy (Season 5) and the two-hundred forty-sixth case overall. It takes place in The Greens district of Grimsborough.
Mid-investigation, Cathy discovered that Kalua had been at Magical Mystery Records shortly before her death. Later, Gabriel got high on the designer drug Scrappy Snacks. The team was then able to find partygoer Robyn Ash guilty of the murder.
Upon admitting to the murder, Robyn explained that when she had hired Kalua to play at her 21st birthday party, she made her promise not to use strobe lighting during the party because her little sister, Piper, suffered from epilepsy. During the party, however, Kalua broke her promise, inducing a fatal seizure from Piper. With her sister's death being ruled as an accident and without money to file a case against Kalua, Robyn decided to exact revenge by killing her instead. She snuck into the nightclub during Kalua's rehearsals and shocked her with a high-voltage stun gun. Judge Powell sentenced Robyn to 7 years in prison.
Post-trial, Jones and the player went back to the nightclub to investigate Marconi and found a restricted access card inside a bag of one of Marconi's employees in Hawk Eye Security. Per Cathy, the card proved that Hawk Eye Security was guarding the satellite crash site. Upon interrogation, Marconi told the team that DreamLife had hired his company, reminding Jones that the satellite belonged to DreamLife. Furthermore, Marconi said that DreamLife was secretive about the entire affair. The cops then talked to DreamLife founder Rozetta Pierre, who said that she had hired Hawk Eye Security knowing that they were the best despite Marconi's background and that the satellite was part of a failed communications project.
Meanwhile, Amir and the player searched for Rupert, who had failed to show up at his meeting with Amir. They then discovered that Rupert was preoccupied with playing DreamLife's virtual reality game. After they met up with him in the lab, Rupert promised not to let the game carry him away. After all the events, Chief Parker advised the team to stay alert on DreamLife's activities.
