Starlight Shores is a major city in the United States, and the main setting for the first season of Criminal Case, which was initially released on November 9, 2016.

The city is an island city of the coast of California. It contains seven districts each with unique scenery and composition. There names are Urban Skies, Central City, La Mirada, Everdeen Park, Hidden Falls, Solaris City and finally Starlight Estate.


The bustling city was formed by a small group of philosophers back in the 18th century. This group was led by Marie Starlight, also known as 'the mother of Starlight Shores'. Over the years the city has separated into seven distinct districts. A famous monument, called 'the Origin Point', is located in Starlight Estate. It marks the birth place of the city.


Urban Skies

Urban Skies is a district with many annual celebrations designed for the public by Theo Ryans to gain awareness for his protests, these include the horse race, winter ball, field festival and more. The district also focuses on the relationship between Linda and Theo. This is the home of Linda Potters.
