Events of Criminal Case

The Grim Butcher

Jones and the player met Sam after investigating the homeless camp he currently lived in: Cooperville. They questioned him about Jennifer's relationship with Raphael Soza. Sam claimed to know Raphael and told Jones he could not be capable of doing such a thing.

Sam's knife

Sam's knife was found during the investigation.

Sam was flagged as a suspect once again when the team questioned him about being at the scene of the murder. Although Sam looked suspicious of the murder, he was ultimately revealed to be innocent when Tony Marconi was incarcerated for manslaughter.

During the Additional Investigation of the case, the team managed to find a knife in the sewer outlet; they ran it through the system and found out it belonged to an ex-army man named Samuel Bennett. Finding a picture of Samuel, they realized that it was in fact One-Tooth Sam before he became homeless.

The picture of Sam before he was homeless reminded him that he wanted to become Samuel Bennett again. He then enlisted the team's help and sent them into the sewers to find a metal box for him. Breaking the lock, the team managed to find a jewel and some more treasure, and then shipped the jewel to Grace in order to make sure it really belonged to Sam. After analyzing the jewel, Grace confirmed that it did belong to Sam and stated that the jewel could easily make him one of the richest men in Grimsborough.

Sam would go on to become one of the richest men in Grimsborough.

When the team returned the jewel back to him, Sam revealed that he had originally bought the jewel for his late wife, Lily Bennett. He also stated that when she was sick, even all the money in the world could not save her. And when she died, suddenly the sight of money made him sick so he got rid of it all. However, that jewel was the only thing he could not bring himself to throw away. He now decided that he was going to spend every last cent of his money on Cooperville and the Industrial Area, realizing that even if money failed him, it could save others.
