Events of Criminal Case
Vanessa was Jennifer Carter's mother who went through a rough time throughout the case.
Vanessa permitted Jones and the player investigate her home and later on broke down because the killer had sold Jennifer's heart to her. She knew Jennifer was dating Raphael Soza in Cooperville, but she did not like that because she thought there were just perverts and killers and she wanted to protect her daughter.
She was seen again in the Additional Investigation because she wanted to bury Jennifer's baptism token in her grave but lost it. When the player succeeded to repair it, she said she did not know if it was Jennifer's one or her unknown elder daughter's because the birth date was not legible. Vanessa was very thankful the team were able to decode Jennifer's date of birth following the player's code cracking antics.
