Characters Introduced

Case Background

The victim was the foundry worker, Craig Mistem. He was found burnt in one of the ovens in Queen Elizabeth Foundry. The fire had already been extinguished, but the remains of liquid zirconium burnt his skin and ended up killing him.

At the climax of the case, Stephanie Queen turned out to be the killer. Stephanie was an old woman and also Robert Jamin's mother-in-law. The motives of the murder are traced back to the additional investigation of Decease Behind The Trees (Case #3). Craig was dating Ashley Jamin, but the Jamin family didn't approve this relationship. When Stephanie discovered they'd get married, she went to the foundry to talk to Craig. She couldn't persuade Craig so she pushed him onto the oven.

For being senile and needing medical care, Judge Gonzalez sentenced Stephanie Queen to spend 20 years in home arrest.
