Teresa Turing née Meduse (1981-2015) was a suspect in the murder investigation of her husband, CEO Ernest Turing, in Smart Money (Case #46 of Pacific Bay). She was then murdered in Immortal Sin (Case #49 of Pacific Bay).
Teresa was born Teresa Meduse and was 34 years of age at the time of her death. She was initially Ernest's "trophy wife" who succeeded him as the CEO of Meteor Systems after her husband died. Teresa had blonde hair and wore lipstick. She wore a green dress and had a necklace and a bracelet. It is known that Teresa practiced yoga. Teresa was survived by her mother, Greta Meduse.
Events of Criminal Case
Teresa was first interrogated after Amy and the player found a last minute first class plane ticket with her name on it. Ernest told her she was spending too much of his money, so she purchased that ticket to show she could do whatever she wanted. Ernest was mad at first, but because of his wife's appearance, he instantly forgave her. When Amy asked if Teresa returned that same affection, she replied saying she did not care about love and all she wanted was the money.
She was eventually interrogated again after the team found a robotic head that looked similar to her. Teresa was infuriated that her husband was going to replace her with a robotic look-alike. At first, she thought he was making it as a dedication to her beauty, but then the victim told her it was going to replace her and not spend all his money. He also told her that as soon as the robot was completed that he would leave her penniless. When Amy began suspecting her for killing her husband, Teresa said that something like that would not be worth her time.
Teresa was found innocent of the crime of killing her husband after Per-Sephone was found guilty for the murder. However, the team managed to find a will written by the victim, and it said that his wife was going to inherit his company, Meteor Systems. When they told her this, she was mad at first but then realized the benefits that would come because of it. She was happy since now people would have to listen to her and not treat her like some brainless bimbo.
Chief Marquez ordered Amy and the player to patrol a new underwater lab recently opened by Meteor Systems, only to find Teresa stung to death by jellyfish, which was immediately filed as the murder weapon. Amy thought that the CEO position was a very dangerous position to have, and the player was smart enough to ship Teresa's body to Roxie for autopsy.
Amy and the player were smart to file the jellyfish as the murder weapon as Roxie confirmed the death was caused by multiple jellyfish stings sustained underwater. Roxie also noticed a hexagonal mark on her forehead, which meant Teresa was knocked out before being released to the water. The shape of the mark suggested it was made with hand weights-- meaning the killer trained with some of them.
Killer and motives
The killer turned out to be her own mother, Greta.
Amy was stunned when the player found out that Greta killed her own daughter. Greta felt that Teresa was obligated to share the youth with her, Teresa kept her immortality experiments to herself, something Greta hated since she did not tolerate her daughter keeping secrets. Amy informed Greta about Teresa's terminal disease (Yann had found out about this during the investigation). This had motivated Teresa to start her dangerous immortality experiment), something Greta never knew, and felt that the terminal disease was something Teresa should not have hidden at all. The player had enough of Greta, so they shipped Greta to face Judge Dante.
Judge Dante deduced the murder method monstrous but Greta defended herself by telling the Judge that Teresa hid her terminal disease from her. Judge Dante felt Greta took punishment to unacceptable levels, and in spite of what Greta said, Judge Dante made it clear that he was the one holding the judge's gavel, allowing him to sentence Greta to 20 years in jail.
- Teresa's death at the hands of her own mother is one of the instances of domestic homicide in Pacific Bay.
