The Death of Rosa Wolf is a case featured in Criminal Case, appearing as the introductory case of the game. It is the first case set in the city of Grimsborough and also the first one to take place in the Industrial Area district.


A teenager named Rosa Wolf was reported dead at the entrance of town with her throat slashed. After gaining enough evidence, the Grimsborough PD's intel suggested that Matt Barry and Ash Bison were suspected of murder, in which Matt was found guilty of grand homicide.

Matt's motive for killing Rosa was never stated as he was given an automatic lifetime jail sentence without Judge Hall's intervention. The player was then permitted to move on to the next case (with the option to interrogate Ash Bison later on) as gratitude for completing the case.
