Case Background

The victim was Abs Spears who was found burnt to ashes in a wooden box sent to the player. The killer was Saigyouji Tomoshiro, who hated Abs since they were working together on a cafeteria. Tomoshiro wanted to be the employee of the month on the cafeteria "Coffee Desires" run by Ice Sword.
