A Marriage Made in Heaven

  • Examine the body, and look closely at both sides of his jacket to find a Life Insurance Letter and a Wallet.
  • Examine the three evidence markers.
  • In the alley to the left of Ray's there's a bloody knife in the trash. (Finding this on your first visit will earn the Stab-Rite trophy.)

Interview: Shannon Perry

  • Eyewitness Report: Good Cop (or Truth in the original version).
  • Suspect Vehicle Description: Good Cop (or Truth in the original version).

  • Association with Victim: Good Cop (or Truth in the original version).
  • Argument Overheard in Bar: Bad Cop (or Doubt in the original version).

For time out in the open world, we have guides on Golden Reel locations, Badge Pursuit Challenge locations, Landmark locations, an outfits list, a hidden vehicles and cars list and finally a guide to completing LA Noire Street Crime side-quests.

Next case: LA Noire - A Slip of the Tongue

Location: Pattison Residence

Chase Leroy Sabo and take him down. Try and shoot him while he's running - if he gets too far he'll take a hostage and you'll need to shoot him quickly whilst not hurting the hostage which is much trickier.

Another case closed; a grisly end, sure, but you got your man. Two for two; a good start!
