Death by Commute is the second case of the "Metropolitan District."

Case BackgroundEdit

The victim is an employee of a company named Leland SciCorp, Jason Blackwood, who was found dead in the train of Milkovich Railway Express with a sack covering his head. The killer was his co-worker, Arnold Flameheart.

Arnold, Victoria, Harlen and Jason were college friends but after graduation they all got seperated. They then reunited in Shawn's company but one day in one of their science fair, an incident happened and caused the company a bad name. So Arnold investigated and found out that Jason ruined the fair so he could show that Shawn is a corrput man but just only causing the death of their friend, Isabelle Leland, Shawn's daughter and Jason's ex-suitor.

Arnold, Victoria and Harlen made a meeting with Jason in the science fair ruins where this made him confess about the incident. Isabelle doesn't want to be married to Jason where this made him commit the crime. They then threatened Jason that they will tell it to the police and their boss. But then Arnold's wrath made him decapitate him, meaning Victoria and Harlen witness the crime. Before they ran away, Arnold asks them to carry him to the railway train and put his head at the acid vat to melt his head into a skull.

Arnold asks the judge to give Victoria and Harlen a chance so he will be he one to take the full consequences. Thus, Arnold is sentenced to 10 years with a chance of parole of 5 years but then she sentenced Victoria 10 years with a chance of parole of 2 years. This made Arnold react why Victoria has a less chance of parole than him. This made the judge explain that the one who assists the killer in a crime has a large consequence.
