Version History


Greetings, fellow gamers! Oracle93 coming at you with his second full 
guide, and fourth GameFAQs file overall. This time, it’s for an awesome 
game that I finished recently, Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney. The game is 
very different from a lot of games, and the concept is innovative: you 
are a rookie defense lawyer who must get five clients declared innocent 
in the face of overwhelming evidence. While the game is not exactly a 
realistic simulation of courtroom proceedings, it is very fun and fast-
paced and tests your critical thinking skills to the limit.

A few general rules before we start: if you want to e-mail me a 
question, make sure to read the entire guide to see if it’s answered. 
Chances are it is, but if it’s really not, feel free to send it to me. 
Also, I have to be able to read it, so no IM talk or leetspeak. No 
unconstructive criticism, spam, death threats (justified or not) etc., 
etc., you know the drill.

The guide contains some spoilers, so don’t read ahead if you don’t want 
to find out what happens. To jump to a specific point, hit CTRL+F and 
type in the search code from the contents. The guide is REALLY LONG, so 
don’t try to find things yourself

Enjoy the guide & especially the game!


“Why did I become a lawyer? Because someone has to stick up for the 
people who have no-one on their side.”-Phoenix Wright

You play Phoenix Wright, a cynical defense lawyer fresh out of law 
school. He is taking his first cases under the tutelage of the famous 
Mia Fey, of Fey & Co. Law Offices. Phoenix must learn to survive in an 
legal system of guilty until proven innocent, where the rules 
consistently favor the prosecution.

Throughout the game, Phoenix will represent five clients in far-reaching 
cases that deal with such subjects as blackmail, the mob, and police 
corruption. He will also meet such characters as Maya Fey, Mia’s sister 
who will become Phoenix’s assistant, Dick Gumshoe, a somewhat bumbling 
detective at the Criminal Affairs Dept., and of course Miles Edgeworth, 
the requisite “evil prosecutor” who will go up against Phoenix in 
several trials.

Game Mechanics

During the detective work sequences, you will control Phoenix from a 
first-person viewpoint. You have five options that will appear on the 
bottom screen:

TALK: If there is someone in front of you, use this to talk to them. You 
will be presented with a list of subjects to talk about, and it’s 
recommended you talk about all of them. During conversation, use A or 
tap the triangle “play” symbol on the bottom screen to cycle through 
speech sections.

EXAMINE: Select this, and you will see the area on the bottom screen, 
devoid of whoever may be standing there. Use the stylus or D-Pad to move 
the cursor. When the cursor is over a point of interest, the “Examine” 
button appears at the bottom-right. Press it for a description of the 

MOVE: This will allow you to move to a different location. A list of 
accessible areas appears on the screen, so select where you want to go. 
There are certain areas you can only access from one other area.

PRESENT: This allows you to show people items that may get them to say 
something important. The Court Record will open, and you will pick the 
item you want to show.

COURT RECORD: This is present during both detective work and trial 
sequences. When you select it in the top-right corner, it shows a list 
of all the evidence you have collected. Select an item for a short 
description. Sometimes when you get evidence such as a map or a 
photograph, the Check button appears in the bottom right. Use this to 
look more closely. Also, the Profiles section holds bios of everybody 
relevant to the proceedings.

During a trial, cycle through conversation in the same way as above. 
During a cross-examination, the statements from the testimony appear on 
the screen, and you can cycle back and forth through them with the two 
arrows on the touch screen. There are also three options:

PRESS: Use this to needle a witness on the subject of whatever statement 
is currently shown. Sometimes, this is all you need to do to get them to 
break down.

PRESENT: If there is a direct contradiction in the testimony, use this 
to present evidence from the court record that proves it. Evidence added 
to the court record or presented is in all caps.

COURT RECORD: Same as during detective work.

If, during a trial, you present the wrong evidence or say something 
wrong, you will lose one of five exclamation points you have. If you 
lose them all, the trial is over and your client is guilty. Also, there 
are some things you can say that will lose the trial automatically!


Q: Can I put your walkthrough on my website?
A: Sure, just remember to ask permission first or it’s plagiarism.


EPISODE 1: THE FIRST TURNABOUT                                 (1FIRST)

VICTIM: Cindy Stone
WITNESS LIST: Larry Butz, Frank Sahwit

Case 1 is the “training” case, and as such, it has no detective work 
sequence, only a trial. This case is, as Phoenix describes it, a fairly 
simple one: a model has been beaten to death in her apartment, and 
Phoenix’s childhood friend, Larry Butz, is taking the rap. Phoenix’s job 
is to represent Larry and get him proven not guilty.

TRIAL                                                         (1FIRSTT)

“Give me the death penalty! I’m not afraid to die!”-Larry Butz

After the opening cutscene, in which we see the true murderer, Phoenix 
and Mia talk in the defendant’s lobby for a bit before Larry runs in. He 
is so despairing over his girlfriend’s death that he is ready for the 
death penalty. Phoenix will introduce himself and the case, and then the 
trial begins.

To start, the judge will give Phoenix a test to make sure he’s ready for 
the trial. There are three questions to answer:

Question 1: Please state the name of the defendant in this case.

Easy. The answer is Larry Butz.

Question 2: Who is the victim in this case?

Phoenix doesn’t know this one, so Mia will give him a quick tutorial on 
the Court Record. Check the Profiles section to find that the answer is 
Cindy Stone.

Question 3: What was the cause of death?

Check the Court Record again. In the Evidence section, find CINDY’S 
AUTOPSY REPORT, which states that she died due to blunt trauma.

Now that the quiz is over, the judge believes that Phoenix is ready. The 
judge asks the prosecutor, Winston Payne, to explain what the murder 
weapon was. He says it was a STATUE of “The Thinker” which will be added 
to the court record. After this, Payne calls Larry to testify.

Payne asks Larry if it’s true that Cindy recently dumped him. Larry 
denies this, but it’s true anyway. Payne says that she had returned from 
Paris with one of her boyfriends the day before the murder. Her PASSPORT 
is added to the court record.

Payne goes on to say that Cindy had “Sugar Daddies” who gave her money 
that she used to support her opulent lifestyle. Payne then asks Larry 
what he thinks of Cindy now. Larry could say something to hurt himself 
here, so Phoenix should stop him from answering.

The motive is now clear, so Payne asks if Larry had gone to the 
apartment on the day of the murder. Larry speaks vaguely, so select to 
have him answer honestly. Larry will say he went, but she wasn’t home. 
Payne says he was lying, and calls a witness to prove it: Frank Sahwit, 
the man who found the victim’s body. The moment this guy takes the 
stand, you should recognize him. It’s that guy in the purple suit from 
the opening scene: the true murderer!

Witness Testimony: Frank Sahwit-Witness’s Account

Sahwit describes the day of the murder: he was selling newspaper 
subscriptions door-to-door when he saw a man fleeing an apartment. It 
was strange because he left the door half-open behind him. Thinking it 
odd, Sahwit looked inside the apartment and saw the victim lying dead. 
He was unable to go inside because of fear, and though to call the 
police, but the phone wasn’t working, so he used a public phone at the 
park. He remembers the time exactly, 1:00 PM, and identifies the fleeing 
man as Larry Butz.

The judge asks why the phone wasn’t working, and Payne says there was a 
blackout. The phone was a cordless one that wouldn’t function without 
power. Payne presents a BLACKOUT RECORD that is added to the Court 
Record. Mia gives you a tutorial on cross-examinations, and then it’s 
time to pick apart the testimony!

Cross-Examination: Frank Sahwit-Witness’s Account

This is quite easy. In this trial, it is not even necessary to ever 
press the witness. Go to Sahwit’s statement about the time: 1:00 PM. 
Present CINDY’S AUTOPSY REPORT, which identifies the time as three hours 
later than what Sahwit said. Sahwit will now have to change his 
testimony to explain why he was so sure of the time.

Witness Testimony: Frank Sahwit-The Time of Discovery

Sahwit says that he heard the time when he found the body, and that the 
voice saying it was coming from the television. He explains that it was 
three hours off because the victim was watching a tape, and that’s why 
he thought it was 1:00 PM. Time to cross-examine.

Cross Examination: Frank Sahwit-The Time of Discovery

Again, very easy. When Sahwit says that the victim was watching a tape, 
present the BLACKOUT RECORD to prove that the television couldn’t have 
been working. Sahwit will change his testimony again.

Witness Testimony: Frank Sahwit-Hearing the Time

Sahwit didn’t hear the time, he saw it. There was a table clock in the 
apartment, the murder weapon that was used to hit the victim.

Cross-Examination: Frank Sahwit-Hearing the Time

At the statement about the murder weapon, present the STATUE. Phoenix 
will say it’s a statue, not a table clock. Payne explains that the 
statue is a clock, and if you tilt a switch in the neck, it will say the 
time. However, there’s still a problem with the testimony, so answer 
“Yes” when the judge asks. The only way Sahwit could have known it was a 
clock is to hold it in his had, yet he said he never went into the 
apartment! Select that the witness knew it was a clock because he went 
into the apartment.

Phoenix says the he can prove Sahwit was the one who killed her, and 
explains that the force of the blow was enough to trigger the clock’s 
voice. The sound left an impression on him, which is why the voice was 
burned into his memory. Sahwit denies it all and throws his toupee at 
Phoenix. The judge calls for order, and asks Phoenix for evidence that 
Sahwit heard the sound from the clock. The sound he heard was definitely 
it, a fact which is clear if you simply try sounding the clock. The 
clock rings and announces the time: 8:25.

According to Payne, the time is now 11:25, proving that the clock is 
exactly three hours slow. Sahwit claims you forgot one thing, and that 
if you can’t prove the clock was three hours slow on the day of the 
murder, there’s no case. Phoenix can’t prove that, and the cross-
examination ends...

...until Mia jumps in. She tells Phoenix to think outside the box, to 
not doubt the facts and instead wonder WHY the clock was three hours 
slow. The judge asks for evidence why the clock was three hours slow on 
the day of the murder. Present the PASSPORT, proving that due to the 
time difference between here and Paris, the clock was not three hours 
slow; it was nine hours fast. Cindy had forgotten to reset the clock 
after returning home from Paris.

Sahwit faints, and is arrested. The judge is impressed, and declares Mr. 
Larry Butz NOT GUILTY!!! Court is adjourned. It turns out Sahwit was a 
common criminal, pretending to sell papers so he could get into empty 
houses. As he was searching Cindy’s apartment, she returned, and he 
grabbed a blunt object and beat her to death.

Mia congratulates you, but Larry doesn’t look so happy: he’s still lost 
Cindy forever. Larry gives Mia a copy of the clock as a gift (he made 
them both), and talks about Cindy playing him for a fool. Mia says there 
is something you can show Larry to prove Cindy still had feelings for 
him. Present the STATUE: Cindy took it with her to Paris, even though 
it’s pretty heavy to carry around.

Enjoy the ending cutscene; you’ve beaten Episode 1! The others aren’t 
nearly this short, though.

EPISODE 2: TURNABOUT SISTERS                                 (2SISTERS)

WITNESS LIST: Dick Gumshoe, April May, Bellboy, Redd White

This time around, the victim is your mentor, Mia Fey. She has been 
beaten to death by the same statue that killed Cindy Stone, although it 
was swung by a different hand. Her sister, Maya Fey, is incriminated, 
and you have to represent her. As you investigate the case, you’ll turn 
up blackmail, an evil corporation, and something called DL-6...

DETECTIVE WORK 1                                          (2SISTERSDW1)

“I shall have to ask for something else, Ms. Fey...your eternal 


In the opening scene, you’ll here a conversation between Mia and her 
sister, Maya. After it’s all over, you’ll gain control in your first 
detective work sequence. Move to the Office. You’ll discover the corpse 
and briefly meet Maya Fey. After that, you regain control in the office.

Examine Mia’s body to add THE THINKER and the GLASS SHARDS to the court 
record. A piece of paper falls from Mia’s hand. Examine it: it’s got 
Maya’s name written in blood. The RECEIPT is added to the court record. 
Move to the left and examine the phone to find that somebody was taking 
it apart. Then, a woman outside the window calls the police.

Click move and select the Fey & Co. Law Offices. Maya will show up again 
and introduce herself. Talk to her about what happened, then about her 
and the chief. Present the RECEIPT with her name on it, and the police 
show up. You’ll meet Dick Gumshoe, who will see the RECEIPT and believe 
Mia wrote the killer’s name: Maya. Maya is taken to the precinct, and 
you meet her in the detention center.


Maya asks if you’re going to be her attorney, so say that it’s up to 
her. Apparently, Mia advised her not to talk to you if she’s in trouble, 
because you lack experience. Talk to her about Maya to learn that she’s 
a spirit medium in training. Talk about spirit mediums to learn that the 
whole Fey family is involved in psychic work. However, Maya’s still in 
training, so she can’t talk to Mia. Talk about the day of the crime to 
get an account: that morning, Mia had called her to ask her to hold some 
evidence: the clock shaped like “The Thinker”.

Phoenix asks how that could be evidence, and Maya offers to have Mia 
explain in her own voice, via a recorded cell phone conversation. Talk 
about your cell phone, and Maya remembers that Gumshoe took it. She 
gives you a memo to remind you to ask for it next time you see him. 
MAYA’S MEMO is added to the court record. Also, she asks you a favor: go 
see a famous lawyer who Mia told her to talk to, and ask him to 
represent her. Accept the favor: the trial is tomorrow at 10:00. Talk 
about the day of the crime again to get the full account: she arrived at 
the office and found Mia dead. Leave the conversation, click move and 
select the Grossberg Law Offices.


The big boss, Marvin Grossberg, is out. You can look around if you want, 
but there’s really nothing to do here. Go to the Fey & Co. Law Offices.


Here, you’ll meet Detective Gumshoe again. Identify him as Gumshoe. Talk 
about Mia to get MIA’S AUTOPSY REPORT added to the court record. Talk 
about Maya, and Gumshoe says the trial is unwinnable--Miles Edgeworth is 
on the prosecution. Talk about Edgeworth: he feels no pain and no 
remorse, and won’t stop until he gets a guilty verdict. He is surrounded 
by rumors of shady deals and forged evidence, and hates crime with a 

Present MAYA’S MEMO to Gumshoe, and tell him straight to get the memo 
replaced with MAYA’S CELL PHONE. Check the court record, and listen to 
the cell phone conversation. Gumshoe will then mention the witness, Miss 
April May, the woman who called the police. He can’t tell you anything 
about her, though. Go to the Gatewater Hotel.


Here, you’ll meet April May, who will run off to freshen up. This is a 
prime opportunity for snooping, so examine the drawer with the 
screwdriver sticking out. Miss May will return and angrily tell you not 
to touch it. Talk to her about what she witnessed; she refuses to talk. 
Talk about Miss May, and Phoenix asks her what she does; still nothing. 
Talk about this room to ask about the two glasses; Miss May still will 
not say anything. Go to the Grossberg Law Offices.


Grossberg is finally at the office, so you can talk to him. Phoenix 
mentions that it’s about Maya Fey, and Grossberg immediately says he 
cannot take the case. Talk about his refusal, and he starts acting odd. 
Talk about Mia to learn that she was Grossberg’s apprentice. Talk about 
the painting to learn that it is extremely valuable, and that he will 
not part with it. Move to the detention center.


You have to break the news to Maya that Grossberg won’t take the case. 
Phoenix tries lying, but Maya sees through it quickly and realizes he 
refused. Talk to her about her family--you'll learn that Mia was the 
only family she had. Her father died when she was young, and her mother 
is missing. Talk about her mother, and you’ll learn that after her 
family was involved in an incident years ago, a man ruined her mother’s 
life. Talk about her mother’s enemy. Apparently, the police attempted to 
solve a murder by using a spirit medium--Maya's mother. The man the 
victim’s spirit said killed him was found innocent, and a man leaked it 
to the press that her mother was a “fraud”. The man’s name was White.

The court-appointed lawyer is about to come, and Phoenix wonders what he 
should do. Select to defend Maya, and explain that you can’t abandon 
her. Maya accepts, and Phoenix asks if she’s innocent. She definitely 
is. Go to the Gatewater Hotel: you have to find out what’s in the drawer 
Miss April May locked.


April May isn’t here, but the bellboy is. The bellboy asks you to give 
May a message: Mr. White of Bluecorp phoned. Phoenix remembers that as 
the name of the man who ruined her mother’s life. Examine the drawer to 
add the WIRETAP to the court record. Save your data; the trial is about 
to begin!

TRIAL 1                                                    (2SISTERST1)

“Bottom-feeding, scum-sucking lawyer!”-April May

The trial begins with Miles Edgeworth’s opening statement. He says that 
Maya was at the scene, they have evidence and witnesses, and that there 
is no reason to doubt the facts. He calls Detective Gumshoe as his first 

Gumshoe uses the floor plans to explain the crime: the body was found by 
the window, and the murder weapon was another statue of THE THINKER, 
found next to the body. The FLOOR PLANS are added to the court record. 
Gumshoe then testifies about Maya’s arrest.


Gumshoe rushed to the scene the moment he got the call. At the scene, 
there were already two people: Maya Fey and Phoenix Wright. He arrested 
Maya, because they had a witness account describing her--a witness who 
saw the very moment of the murder.


Press the statement about the witness account. Phoenix asks what about a 
witness’s claim is the “hard evidence” he described earlier. The judge 
asks if he has anything else, and Gumshoe mentions that there is 
something else he should have said earlier.


After securing the suspect, Gumshoe examined the crime with his own 
eyes. He found a memo next to the body with the word “Maya” written 
clearly in blood. Lab tests show that the blood was the victim’s, and 
blood was found on the victim’s finger. Before she died, the victim 
wrote the killer’s name!

The judge has a question: why did he not testify about this the first 
time! Gumshoe says he was so nervous and embarassed, he forgot.


According to the autopsy, Mia was killed instantly after being struck. 
She wouldn’t have had time to write anything! Present MIA’S AUTOPSY 
REPORT to bring up this contradiction.

Edgeworth asks when you got the report. You received it the day after 
the murder, which, according to Edgeworth, is dated. Another autopsy was 
performed, the results of which show that Mia lived for a few minutes 
after being hit.

You have to say something here to stop him; select “you’re a sham, 
Edgeworth!” and you’ll ask why he requested a second autopsy. Edgeworth 
won’t answer. MIA’S AUTOPSY REPORT is updated in the court record. 
Edgeworth will then call April May to testify.


At around 9:00 at night, May looked out the window and saw a woman with 
long hair (Mia) being attacked. She identifies the attacker as Maya. Mia 
dodged to one side and ran away, but Maya caught up and hit her. Then 
Mia kind of...slumped.

Say yes when the judge asks whether or not you want to cross-examine. 
She has to have a weakness!


Press the statement in which Miss May identifies Maya as the killer. May 
explains that she knew it was her because of her “girlish physique”. 
However, Maya’s clothes are much more distinctive than her physique. 
Select to question the testimony, and say you’re willing to bet that 
she’s lying. If May had really seen the defendant, she would have 
noticed the acolyte’s outfit and odd hairdo first!

Phoenix proves she was dressed that way on the night of the murder by 
saying that both he and Detective Gumshoe saw her. The judge asks Miss 
May to testify again.


May swears she saw everything. The victim dodged the first attack and 
ran to the right, after which Maya ran after her and hit her with the 
weapon: that clock, THE THINKER.


There’s an obvious problem there: how would she have known the weapon 
was a clock? Press the statement where she mentions the weapon, then 
present THE THINKER. There is no way of knowing that it’s a clock just 
be looking at it.

Edgeworth attempts to stop the questioning here, but Phoenix continues 
and forces May to explain how she knew it was a clock. May says that she 
heard it, but she’s never been to the Fey & Co. Law Offices. The law 
offices are so close to the hotel that she could easily have heard the 
clock. However, you heard in the conversation at the beginning of this 
episode that Mia took the workings out of the clock.

Say that you’re not satisfied because the clock couldn’t have rung, and 
that it was empty. The judge backs up your claim: the clock is missing 
its clockwork! However, Edgeworth mentions that you can’t say there is a 
contradiction unless the clockwork was removed before the murder. To 
prove this, present MAYA’S CELL PHONE. Mia, in the conversation recorded 
the morning before the murder, says she took the workings out!

April May says that she knew it was a clock because she’d seen it before 
at a store. Of course you object to this, so say yes when asked. To 
prove she had never seen it before, present THE THINKER. It was made by 
Larry Butz--there are only two in the world! May becomes suspiciously 
angry when you say this.

It’s now time to explain why she knew it was a clock. Select that she 
had heard about it, and present the WIRETAP as proof. Phoenix accuses 
Miss May of tapping Mia’s phone. Prove that Mia said, on the phone, that 
the statue was a clock by presenting MAYA’S CELL PHONE. In the 
conversation, Mia identifies it as a clock.

Phoenix says that the only way she could have known it is a clock is to 
have heard it by tapping this conversation. The judge now forces May to 
answer whether or not she was tapping the victim’s phone. She refueses 
to answer. Alright, you LAWYER, time for the final blow. Select “why the 
wiretap?” May now has to prove that she has nothing to do with Mia’s 
murder even though she was tapping her phone.

Unfortunately, it seems she can pull it off. May says that the murder 
occurred at 9:00, exactly the time she ordered iced coffee from her 
bellboy. This proves she was not at the scene of the crime. You have to 
say something here: call the bellboy as a witness!

Edgeworth allows you to call the bellboy, on one condition: if Miss 
May’s alibi is not called into question during his testimony, you must 
accept that Maya is guilty. Accept the condition to call the bellboy.


The bellboy introduces himself as the head bellboy for the Gatewater 
Hotel. After 8:00 in the evening he received a call from Miss May, 
asking for an iced coffee to be brought to her at 9:00 exactly. He 
brought it to her at the requested time, and delivered it to May 


There is nothing you can actually do here, so press every statement 
until Edgeworth says that there is nothing there. The judge asks the 
bellboy to leave the stand, but Phoenix should protest. The judge gives 
you one more question to ask before the bellboy leaves and Maya is found 

Ask about check-in. The bellhop says that his first impression was that 
Miss May was his type of girl, so it was a disappointment that her 
“lover” was there. Phoenix forces the bellboy to tell him whether or not 
May checked in with another person. The bellboy says she did, and that 
he didn’t mention it because Edgeworth told him not to if he wasn’t 

Miss May checked in with a man, and when the bellboy brought room 
service, this man was not in the room. Phoenix says that they have 
learned of another person who may have been involved, and that it is 
impossible to judge the defendant in this light. Identify the “other 
person” as the man with Miss May: a man that has no alibi! It’s even 
more suspicious that Edgeworth hid this man from the court.

The judge requests that you look into the matter of this other man, and 
court is adjourned. After the scene in the lobby, Phoenix mentions that 
he requested a record of April May’s testimony. However, it’s so full of 
lies that only one part was left on record: the account of the murder. 
The MAY TESTIMONY is added to the Court Record. Time for a bit more 
detective work.

DETECTIVE WORK 2                                          (2SISTERSDW2)

“Arresting Mr. White will be nigh on impossible.”-Marvin Grossberg


At the beginning, you’ll be at the detention center talking to April 
May. She is still mad and doesn’t want to cooperate, but she lets you 
ask some questions anyway. Talk about that “man”--she will not say 
anything, nor will she talk about the wiretap, or her attitude. Phoenix 
wonders if there is something she can do to make her talk. Go to the 
Gatewater Hotel.


Talk to the bellboy about Miss May to learn that he though all along 
she’d “do it”. Talk about the man with Miss May to learn that he could 
probably identify him if he had a photograph. Talk about the hotel to 
learn his plans for changing the name, then go to the Grossberg Law 


Examine the wall. There used to be a painting there, of a fisherman. 
Examine the photographs on the desk. They are marked “DL-6 incident-
Exhibits A and B”. Take exhibit A to add the PHOTOGRAPH to the court 
record. The person looks familiar, but the photo is not useful right 
now, so look at the photos again and swap photos to get exhibit B. This 
appears as a different PHOTOGRAPH in the court record. Go to the 
Gatewater Hotel.


Present the PHOTOGRAPH to the bellboy. Apparently, the man in this photo 
is the man who checked in with Miss May. Have him write an affidavit 
swearing this fact. The BELLBOY’S AFFIDAVIT is added to the court 
record. Go to the detention center.


Present the PHOTOGRAPH to Miss May, who denies she checked in with this 
man and asks for proof. Present the BELLBOY’S AFFIDAVIT to prove who the 
man is. Select to push her hard, and Phoenix says he will show the photo 
to the press if she doesn’t talk.

May will break down and identify the man as her boss, Redd White, the 
C.E.O. of Bluecorp, an “information gathering conglomerate”. She says 
you could call them a detetive agency, but that she is scared to talk 
more. Phoenix says he will talk to Redd White himself. Go to Bluecorp.


You’ll notice that Grossberg’s painting is hanging on the wall. Redd 
White will show up and ask for your name, then introduce himself and his 
giantesque vocabulary. He will ask what business you have--it’s time to 
ask him some questions.

First, talk about Miss May, his secretary. White says it was a shock to 
hear about her wiretapping, and although she does gather information for 
the company, they do not use illegal methods. Talk about the night of 
the murder. He refuses to say whether or not he was in the hotel room 
with Miss May. He suggests you put him on the witness stand, but says he 
doubts you could do that. According to him, the police and the courts 
are mere playthings for his amusement.

Talk about Bluecorp to learn that they buy and sell “various kinds of 
information” and that it was named after the color blue. Finally, talk 
about the painting, and say that you’ve seen it before. Phoenix asks why 
the painting is on his wall. White tells Phoenix that he is a mere 
lawyer and punches him. He says again: the police and the courts all do 
his bidding. White suggests that you ask Grossberg about the painting, 
so go to the Grossberg Law Offices.


Something seems to be bothering Grossberg when you arrive. Talk about 
today’s trial. Grossberg says he went because he was concerned about 
what would happen to Maya. Talk about his refusal, and he says he just 
needed time to think about it, but he still seems troubled. Talk about 
Mr. White, and say that what has been bothering you is that big 
painting. Yesterday, there was a painting hanging on the wall that he 
had “no intention of parting with”. Today, it’s in Mr. White’s office. 
Phoenix says he knows White and Grossberg are somehow connected.

Say that White is blackmailing Grossberg, and that the painting is 
proof. Grossberg says that perhaps this is a good time to “get it off 
his chest”. He says that Redd White makes a living through intimidation, 
and that Bluecorp excels at finding weaknesses. He himself has been 
paying them for 15 years due to the “DL-6 incident”. He could not defend 
Maya because Whit would have destroyed him. Grossberg goes on to say 
that arresting Redd White will be almost impossible, as he has an iron 
grip on almost everyone with information.

Talk about the DL-6 incident. According to Grossberg, DL-6 is the 
sorting code given to the case by the police department. He mentions 
that 15 years ago he received a request from a spirit medium: Misty Fey, 
Mia and Maya’s mother. Misty Fey had been investigating DL-6 for the 
police and failed, causing her to be called a fraud. Grossberg cleared 
her of wrongdoing, but DL-6 remains unsolved.

Talk about the reason for blackmail, and Grossberg explains that Misty’s 
investigation was kept secret, as the police didn’t want anybody to know 
the lengths they’d had to go to. However, Redd White offered Grossberg 
money in exchange for information on the DL-6 investigation, and he sold 
out Misty. The police were mocked, and began searching for the one who 
revealed them. White came to Grossberg, blackmailing him in exchange for 

Grossberg says that White controls the law as he sees fit, but if you’re 
going to challenge him, you should check Mia’s office. Go to the Fey & 
Co. Law Offices.


Examine the bookcase: it contains the files for every case Mia ever 
worked on. Choose to look at the A-I file, and select to read it. You’ll 
discover the file on Misty Fey, Mia and Maya’s mother. It says that she 
left home leaving only the words “I have tarnished the Fey name.” 
Determined to discover the people who had humiliated her mother, Mia 
used her ESP to talk to the dead. She discovered two names: Marvin 
Grossberg, the lawyer who sold her mother’s information, and the man who 
gave the information to the press, a parasite who makes his fortune on 
threats and coercion--mysteriously, the record stops there. However, Mia 
did know Grossberg.

Examine the bookcase again and choose the J-S file. Choose to skim and 
you’ll discover a collection of reports on suicide: all of them with the 
word “White” in Mia’s handwriting. White drove all of these people to 
commit suicide! Phoenix finds the most disturbing one to use in court. 
The NEWSPAPER CLIPPING is added to the court record. Examine the 
bookcase one more time and choose to check ‘em. You’ll discover that the 
entire W section is missing: W for White! Go to Bluecorp.


White tells you to stop bothering him, or a nasty accident may occur. 
Talk to him about Miss May, and Phoenix decides that talking about her 
is pointless. You also won’t talk about the night of the murder, or 
blackmail. To put him on the spot, present the NEWSPAPER CLIPPING. You 
describe the suicide of the politician, and Mia’s file, after which you 
should accuse White of blackmailing the politician. Phoenix also accuses 
him of blackmailing everyone in Mia’s suicide file, and that Bluecorp is 
built on blackmail.

White tells you to search for the murderer instead of him. He tells the 
secretary to send someone to make you leave. Tell him he’s wrong, and 
that you should be going after him. Mia was keeping tabs on him, so 
April May tapped her phone. Then she was murdered, and all her documents 
about White vanished. He did it!

White will go on the interphone with the chief prosecutor and say that 
he wants to testify, and that you are the murderer! Dick Gumshoe appears 
to take you into custody.


Maya has just been released, and you’ve taken her place. Phoenix tells 
her about everything that happened. When Maya asks what she can do, pick 
the only plausible answer: cheer me on in court. In a short scene, 
you’ll learn about the limit of three days recently put on trials, and 
then the trial begins.

TRIAL 2                                                    (2SISTERST2)

“The police, the courts...they are all playthings for my amusement!”-
Redd White

There’s a scene in the lobby, in which you’ll meet Edgeworth. 
Apparently, Phoenix knew him from somewhere before. Also, you’ll learn 
that you’ll be defending yourself in court. Time to start the trial. 
Edgeworth makes him opening statement, in which he mentions another 
witness he is going to call. Raise an objection when you get the chance 
and ask why this witness was not called before. Edgeworth says that 
White is a “busy man” and he thought April May’s word would be all that 
was needed. Redd White comes to the stand.

White says that he is the CEO of Bluecorp and that he did not know Mia 
Fey. He witnessed the murder from the Gatewater Hotel. White will then 
give his testimony.


It was about 9:00, and White was reading some papers by the window. He 
heard a bedlam coming from outside and turned to the building across the 
way. Then he saw him: a spiky-haired man attacking a woman with long 
hair! Needless to say, the man was you. He called Miss May over at once, 
and she was also flabbergasted. The victim ran away, but you gave chase! 
There was a terrible “impaction” and then it was all over.


Press the statement about when Mia ran away. White changes him statement 
to say that she ran to the left. However, that’s directly opposite to 
what April May said! Present the MAY TESTIMONY, which says she ran to 
the left. White says maybe you misheard her, but Phoenix explains using 
the FLOOR PLANS: if Mia had run left, she would have been running 
directly away from her only escape route!

You now have to explain the contradiction to the court. Select that both 
are right, and that there is only one scenario that could explain this: 
the witness was not viewing the crime from the hotel! He was in the Law 
Offices of Fey & Co. You now have to use the FLOOR PLANS to show the 
court where White was standing.

You’re trying to accuse White of the murder here, so obviously he was 
standing where the killer was. Select the red circle with the letter K 
in the middle and present. If he was watching from that point, he would 
have seen Mia run to the left. White will testify again to clear up this 


Miss May’s testimony, and White’s are both correct. When you assaulted 
the girl, she first ran left, then she was hit. After that, with the 
last of her strength, she ran right. You chased her and delivered the 
final blow. That’s what Miss May saw. You hit her twice!


The final statement about hitting her twice contradicts the autopdy. 
Present MIA’S AUTOPSY REPORT to remind white that the victim died from a 
single blow. Didn’t White say his statements were perfect? Edgeworth 
tries to get the judge to call a break, but Phoenix stops him, and White 
must testify again.


He looked out the window when he heard that thing fall. The next moment, 
he saw Mia run to the left. The killer attacked her, but she dodged, 
turned, and ran for the door. Then you did her in with a single blow.


Press the first statement to ask what “that thing” was. White says it 
was a glass light stand. When Maya asks, say it’s very odd. White will 
revise his testimony to include the light stand. At the statement about 
the light stand, present the GLASS SHARDS. There is no way you can know 
it was a light stand just by seeing the pieces!

White says he saw the stand before it fell over, before the victim was 
attacked. Select that there is a big problemo. White says that he saw 
the stand through the window of the hotel before it fell. To prove 
nobody from the hotel could have seen the stand before it fell, present 
the FLOOR PLANS. Phoenix points out the visible area from the hotel. 
This area doesn’t contain the light stand.

The only place White could have seen the stand before it fell is from 
inside the Fey & Co. Law Offices! He was at the scene of the crime when 
the murder took place. Phoenix accuses White of the murder, and 
Edgeworth starts telling him to confess his crime: the crime of placing 
the wiretap.

Edgeworth explains that White had his secretary, April May, tap the 
victim’s phone. However, White himself entered the offices to place the 
wiretap, and saw the light stand then, not at the moment of the murder. 
White gives a testimony about the wiretap.


It was the beginning of September, a week before the murder. White 
entered the Fey & Co. Law Offices to place the wiretap. That was when he 
saw the glass light stand.


As with the bellboy’s testimony earlier, there is nothing you can 
actually do. Continually press each statement, in order, until Phoenix 
gives up. Out in the lobby you’ll meet...Mia! Apparently, the shock of 
seeing you give up in court was enough to awaken Maya’s psychic ability. 
Mia is being channeled through Maya.

Mia tells you not to give up, and that you’ve “already won”. On the 
other side of the RECEIPT that White wrote Maya’s name on in Mia’s blood 
is a record of purchase. It’s for a glass light stand from a famous 
department store...dated one day before the murder! This, of course, is 
after White placed the wiretap. He couldn’t have seen the glass light 
stand. The RECEIPT is updated in the court record.

Back in court, Phoenix asks for one more chance and Edgeworth agrees. 
You’ll now be cross-examining the same testimony. At the final 
statement, present the RECEIPT to prove White wrong. When White entered 
the law offices a week before the murder, the stand was not there.

The trial is about to end, but Edgeworth raises another objection: there 
is no hard evidence that Phoenix is innocent, and that the trial should 
be extended for one more day so another inquiry can be made. Object to 
this, and you say that White is obviously guilty and that there is no 
need to prolong the trial. The judge denies your objection, but Mia 
gives you a memo to read. MIA’S MEMO is added to the court record. 
Present MIA’S MEMO: it’s a list of names, all people White drove to 

Mia threatens to give the list to the press if White does not confess 
the murder. White yells at her to stop, and then finally confesses to 
killing Mia. The judge declares the defence, Phoenix Wright, NOT 
GUILTY!!! Enjoy the ending movie for this episode, in which Phoenix 
becomes head of the Fey & Co. Law Offices, and Maya becomes his 
assistant. Get ready for the next episode!

EPISODE 3: TURNABOUT SAMURAI                                 (3SAMURAI)

VICTIM: Jack Hammer
DEFENDANT: Will Powers
WITNESS LIST: Wendy Oldbag, Cody Hackins, Sal Manella, Dee Vasquez

In this episode, the first and one of only two cases in the game that 
Phoenix has no personal stake in, a popular TV actor is accused of 
killing his co-star. Phoenix and Maya must investigate his studio and 
uncover the seething resentment, threats, and mob involvment lurking 
beneath the studio’s happy kid’s-show facade.

DETECTIVE WORK 1                                          (3SAMURAIDW1)

“What must they think of the Steel Samurai now...”-Will Powers

The episode opens with a fight between the Steel Samurai and the Evil 
Magistrate. After that, you gain control in the newly renamed Wright & 
Co. Law Offices.


Maya describes the Steel Samurai, the most popular TV hero for young 
people. Phoenix talks about how he hasn’t had a client since his trial, 
and the scene switches to his bedroom. Maya calls him in the middle of 
the night. The Steel Samurai killed a villain! Of course this is what 
he’s supposed to do, but he did it in real life! Phoenix goes to the 
office the next morning.

The news next morning descrides the murder. Will Powers, the actor who 
played the Steel Samurai, killed Jack Hammer, the actor who played the 
Evil Magistrate, Steel Samurai’s perpetual nemesis. Hammer’s body was 
found in the Evil Magistrate costume, pierced with the Samurai Spear. 
Maya’s cell phone suddenly rings. It’s the Steel Samurai! He’s down at 
the detention center, so go there.


Here you’ll meet Will Powers. Maya is scared of his face, and Powers 
explains that he got the Steel Samurai job because he would wear a mask. 
He didn’t want to wreck kids’ dreams. Talk to him about what happened. 
Powers explains that yesterday morning, the cast arrived at Global 
Studios to rehearse action scenes. Another rehearsal was scheduled at 
5:00, but when everyone arrived, Jack Hammer was found, killed by the 
Samurai Spear.

Talk about the Steel Samurai. Powers explains that he is the lead in a 
popular kid’s show, walking the streets of Neo Olde Tokyo and doing 
battle with the Evil Magistrate and his minions, never really defeating 
the Evil Magistrate. Although he did defeat him this time...

Talk about Powers’s alibi. He came to the studios at 9:00, and ran 
through scenes until noon. Before the 5:00 rehearsal, he went to his 
dressing room to take a nap. He woke up after 5, and hurried to the 
studios to find everybody looking shocked. They arrested him, although 
he was sleeping the whole time.

It’s time to check out the crime scene, so head to the studios.


An angry old woman stops you here. She is the security guard, and is 
here to make sure “gawkers” don’t get into the studios. Talk about the 
studios. The security lady mentions that she was once a minor star, and 
that the studio was much better 10 years ago. Jack Hammer was a star 
back then as well, but now he’s been forced to play villains.

Talk about Will Powers. The lady tells you to not be fooled by his mask, 
and that he couldn’t act without it. The Steel Samurai was his big 
break, but nobody knew he would kill Jack Hammer. Maya says they don’t 
know he’s guilty, so talk about the reason for suspicion.

Apparently, the security guard was on duty between 1:00 and 5:00. To get 
to the studio where the murder took place, you have to go through the 
security booth. Only one person passed the gate between 1:00 and the 
time of death, 2:30: Will Powers!

Talk about Mr. Hammer. Apparently, Jack Hammer was the ultimate action 
star, and appeared in several samurai movies. However, there was an 
accident during filming five years ago, and since then, he’s been forced 
to play the villain on a children’s program. The lady tells you to go 
home, and that if you don’t have a letter of request, she can’t be sure 
Powers sent you. Go to the detention center.


Talk to Powers about his alibi, and you’ll bring up that the security 
lady saw him. Powers swears he was asleep, and says that maybe the lady 
only thought she saw him. Talk about the security lady, and Powers tells 
you about her: she sucks up to all the studio bigwigs, but never lets 
anybody slip up. He’ll then give you a letter asking for representation. 
POWERS’S LETTER is added to the court record. Go to the studio main 


Present POWERS’S LETTER to the security guard and it will be removed 
from the court record. She allows you to pass, but only to the studio, 
and not the employee area. Maya will find a map of the studios in the 
guard station. The GUIDEMAP is added to the court record. Go to Outside 
Studio One.


Detective Gumshoe is standing here. He still thinks you’re a murderer, 
and says that Edgeworth is very upset. Talk about the investigation. 
Gumshoe doesn’t want to talk, but after Phoenix asks a bit less 
directly, he hands over JACK’S AUTOPSY REPORT which goes in the court 

Talk about the reason for arrest. Gumshoe explains that Powers entered 
studio one, the crime scene, after 1:00. At that time, nobody was in 
studio one except the victim. The time of death was 2:30, and nobody 
besides Powers entered the studio before then. With that kind of 
evidence, the case doesn’t look good.

Talk about the security lady, and Gumshoe says she gave him an important 
piece of evidence. Talk about decisive evidence. According to Gumshoe, 
the security camera on the welcome gate automatically takes a picture of 
anyone who walks past, and it took one of Powers heading to the scene. 
Gumshoe gives you permission to interview some of the employees, so go 
to the main gate.


Talk to the security lady about photographic evidence. She didn’t show 
it to you because it would be more “thrilling” to talk to the detective. 
She mentions that the gate with the camera is just to the left of where 
you are, and that she checks the photos every day.

Talk about the automatic camera. It can tell when someone walks through 
the gate and snaps a photo. Also, it records what time the picture was 
taken. She views all the photos on the guard station computer every day 
before going home.

You can talk about Mr. Hammer and the reason for suspicion if you want, 
but the lady just rehashes what she already said on those topics. Go to 
the employee area.


Nobody’s here so you can take a look around. Move left and examine the 
open grate. The vent is so large a kid could fit through it. Examine the 
plates on the table to find the remains of yesterday’s lunch: the bones 
from a t-bone steak. Go to Powers’s dressing room.


Examine the bag in the bottom-left corner. Maya finds a CARDKEY which 
you “borrow” and is added to the Court Record. Move to Outside Studio 
One via the employee area and main gate.


Examine the gate on the right with “1st” written on it. This gate goes 
to studio one, and the CARDKEY opens the door. While you’re here, 
examine the camera to find the ID number. Move inside studio one.


Examine the white tape that outlines where Hammer’s body was found. 
Phoenix notes that there should be some bloodstains. Examine the camera 
and Penny Nichols, an assistant at the studio, will show up. Talk to her 
about the day of the crime to learn she was the only assistant on duty. 
In the morning, WP (Powers) and Hammer ran through their action scenes. 
After eating lunch, Hammer went to studio one. Then, she saw Powers go 
into his dressing room, but didn’t see either of them after.

Talk about Will Powers, and you won’t learn much that’s useful. In fact, 
Powers is still looking guilty. Penny says that something’s been 
bothering her: apparently, just after noon on the day of the crime, she 
“sensed” somebody at the studio, someone who didn’t work there. However, 
if someone had come in, wouldn’t the security lady have noticed them?

Talk about sensing someone. You don’t learn anything, so go to the main 
gate via outside studio one.


Talk about the assistant’s claim. Phoenix asks if she’s sure Powers was 
the only one to go through the gate between 1:00 and 2:30. Maya says 
they have a witness who claims someone else was there. The security lady 
gets so angry that she leaves. Now that she’s gone, examine the computer 
in the booth and select to try it. You have to enter some numbers first. 
First, the number of the camera. If you examined the camera outside the 
gate, you’ll know the number, so put it in.

You’ll get a photo of somebody, not necessarily Will Powers, wearing the 
Steel Samurai costume, dragging his leg. Printed on the back is the text 
“Oct 15, 2:00 PM, Photo #2”. That must mean there’s more photo data from 
that day, but there’s nothing else in the computer. POWERS’S(?) PHOTO is 
added to the court record. Save your data, the trial is about to begin.

Trial 1                                                    (3SAMURAIT1)

“I never say anything I don’t mean, mind you!”-Wendy Oldbag

In Edgeworth’s opening statement, he says that it is impossible for 
anyone but Powers to have killed Hammer, and that evidence will point to 
that fact. Edgeworth then calls Detective Gumshoe to the stand. Gumshoe 
uses the GUIDEMAP to explain the crime, much like in the last case. 
First, he points out the locations: the employee area, main gate, and 
studio one. Only three people were at the studio on the day of the 
murder: Jack Hammer, Will Powers, and the production assistant.

The security lady arrived at 1:00 PM, about when Jack Hammer went to 
studio one. Later, at 5:00, the staff went to studio one to perform a 
rehearsal, which was cancelled after Hammer was found killed with the 
Samurai Spear. Choose to skip it when asked, unless you missed 
something. The SAMURAI SPEAR is added to the court record.

According to Edgeworth, the case is simple if you ask one question: what 
did the security lady see? Wendy Oldbag, the security lady, comes to 
testify. After Edgeworth finally gets her to state her name, the 
testimony begins.


On the day of the murder, Oldbag arrived at the guard station at 1:00 
PM. Hammer and the rest had been doing a run-through there since the 
morning. She had some errands to run that morning, and it was 1:00 when 
she got there. Oldbag was at the main  gate until 5:00. The murder 
happened at 2:30 PM, and Powers walked by her at 2:00 PM, heading for 
the studio.


At the statement where Oldbag says it was Powers, present POWERS’S(?) 
PHOTO. If Oldbag could only identify Powers from the photo, there’s no 
way to know it was him! Apparently, though, Oldbag has more proof it was 
powers. She testifies again.


Oldbag never says anything she doesn’t mean. That morning, during the 
runthrough of the action scene, she saw Powers trip and fall. He broke 
one of the props and sprained his ankle. In the photo, he’s dragging his 
leg, and that’s how she knew it was him.


Press the statement about the broken prop to find that it was the murder 
weapon, the SAMURAI SPEAR, and that a break in the shaft was fixed with 
duct tape. The SAMURAI SPEAR is updated in the court record. After this, 
continually press statements until the judge is sure that Powers is in 
the photo.

Object to this, and Phoenix points out that nowhere in the photo can 
Will Powers be seen. The judge admits there is a possibility that 
someone not on camera killed Jack Hammer. Edgeworth asks Oldbag to 
continue her account.


The time of Hammer’s death was 2:30, and the only person she saw go to 
the studio before then was Will Powers. No-one else went there, if they 
had, she would have seen them.


If you’ll remember, POWERS’S(?) PHOTO has the words “Photo #2” written 
on the back. However, if it was the only photo, it would have been Photo 
#1. Present POWERS’S(?) PHOTO at the final statement (“If they had, I 
would have seen them”) to bring this up. This shows that two people 
entered studio one that day, and only Oldbag could have erased the other 
photo. Oldbag gives another testimony.


Every day, after Oldbag finishes her guard duties, she has one other job 
to do. She goes through the photos on the security computer and checks 
them, throwing out any that aren’t suspicious looking. She remembers 
throwing out one photo that day!


Press the statement in which Oldbag says she remembers throwing out a 
photo, and Phoenix asks who was in it. Oldbag says it was a Steel 
Samurai fanboy. Often, they try to sneak into rehearsals, and one was 
there that day. She said no-one else could get in, but there’s a drain 
that leads to the employee area big enough for a kid to fit through. 
That’s where they come in.

In the photo Oldbag erased was a young boy, and although it would be 
very hard for a boy to hold the Samurai Spear, he’s still a suspect. The 
court takes a five minute recess. In a scene, Powers says that anyone 
could have stolen his Steel Samurai costume, and Phoenix says they have 
to prolong the trial by targeting someone else.

Back in court, Edgeworth says nothing has changed, and that nobody but 
Powers could have commited the crime. However, there is one other 
person: the security lady, Wendy Oldbag. Since Will Powers is dragging 
his leg in the photo, whoever was wearing the suit must have seen the 
runthrough, and known Powers had hurt his ankle. The only one present 
besides Powers and Hammer was Oldbag!

Phoenix goes on to say that Oldbag was by herself and had no alibi. She 
could have left her post to steal the costume, gone to studio one, 
killed Hammer, and gone back to her post. She’d have to steal the 
costume so she could frame Powers. Edgeworth has nothing to say for 
once, so press further.

The same reasoning can be used to point the finger at Powers and Oldbag. 
Neither of them have a clear motive. Oldbag then brings up the grade-
schooler, and Phoenix says he’s not the killer, and that he has proof. 
The kid could not have entered studio one without a key, and he had no 
relation to the studios. Present the CARDKEY as proof he didn’t do it. 
The trial is about to end for the day...

...but Oldbag doesn’t want it to. Apparently, there was something that 
someone told her not to say.


Global Studios wanted her to keep quiet about something. There were 
other people at the studio on the day of the murder, who said they had 
nothing to do with it. They told her to just pretend they hadn’t been 
there, but if she’s getting accused, she won’t let them off.


Press the second statement to ask who the other people were. Oldbag 
identifies them as the producer and director of the Steel Samurai. The 
director was in the employee area all morning for the runthrough, then 
went to join the producer for lunch. There was a meeting after that in 
the trailer at studio two; the studio you get to by going left after the 
gate. This is the path where the mascot’s head had fallen.

Select to take a break, as there is nothing more you can do for now. In 
light of the new suspects, it’s impossible to pass judgement on Will 
Powers, so there will be another trial. The episode’s second detective 
work sequence begins here.

DETECTIVE WORK 2                                          (3SAMURAIDW2)

“We’re on the Steel Samurai’s side!”-Maya Fey


Back at the office, you get your next goal: find out more about the 
director and producer. Talk to Maya about what to do and any ideas, then 
go to the detention center.


Talk to Powers about the fanboy. He says Oldbag is strict with them, but 
they really love the Steel Samurai, so they sneak past when she’s not 
looking. Talk about the director to learn that he was there instructing 
the Steel Samurai and Evil Magistrate on how to move. After Maya scolds 
Powers on hiding this from them, head to the studio employee area via 
the main gate.


Penny Nichols is here. She’ll leave to fill in for Oldbag at the guard 
station, so you can look around. Examine the grate. The fanboy from the 
day of the murder got in that way, and they covered it up.. Maya asks if 
she can open it, so select to rip it open. Go to the main gate.


You’ll meet Penny again here. Talk to her about the studios. She says 
there’s police everywhere and they won’t let her clean up. She hasn’t 
even gotten to clean up lunch from the day of the murder. Talk about the 
fanboy to learn about one particular kid she sees a lot. Apparently, 
Oldbag has trouble catching him.

Talk about the director, and Penny says she didn’t see him because she 
was in the prop room during the runthrough. They were trying to protect 
the director, but more the producer: she saved the studios five years 
ago, and kept them running smoothly. Go to the dressing room via the 
employee area.


In here, you’ll meet the leetspeaking director of the Steel Samurai, Sal 
Manella. Maya will give him inspiration for the sequel to the Steel 
Samurai: “Pink Princess: Warrior of Little Olde Tokyo”. Talk to him 
about the day of the crime. After the runthrough, he and the bigwigs had 
a meeting at studio two. He was so busy he didn’t get to eat lunch.

He was in the meeting from 12:00 to 4:00, which gives him an alibi. Talk 
about the producer to find out that her name is Dee Vasquez, and that 
she saved Global Studios from bankruptcy. She also produced the Steel 

Talk about the bigwigs. Apparently, they’re nobody special: the network 
boss, sponsors, production guys. They arrived at the studios for the 
meeting at noon, and Manella was with them the entire time, so they 
could be witnesses to back up his alibi. Go to outside studio one via 
the employee area and main gate.


Gumshoe is tied up with paperwork after the trial, which gives you an 
opportunity to check out studio two. Go there.


An odd noise is coming from the trailer, but it’s locked. There might be 
a key at the main guard station. While you’re here, note some important 
things: the van, the incinerator, and the plates on the table. Go to the 
main gate via outside studio one.


Oldbag is back, and none too happy about you getting her arrested. 
Apparently, the police tried to make her wear the Steel Samurai costume, 
but she couldn’t and they let her go. Talk to her about the fanboy. She 
says she’ll “take him down”. Talk about the director, et al--she’s 
taking him down too. Obviously in this state she won’t let you into the 
guard station, so go to the employee area.


The fanboy appears and introduces himself as Cody Hackins. Talk to him 
about the Steel Samurai. He and Maya argue for a moment, but nothing 
much happens. Talk about what happened. Cody says that the Steel Samurai 
“always wins” and that he saw everything, but “no way is he telling you 
losers”. As he runs, he knocks something off the table: an EMPTY BOTTLE 
which is added to the court record. Go to the main gate.


Oldbag is occupied chasing after Cody, so examine the key rack in the 
guard station to add the TRAILER KEY to the court record. Go to studio 
two via outside studio one.


Examine the trailer door to unlock it with the TRAILER KEY. Move to the 


Inside, you’ll meet Dee Vasquez, the producer. No matter what you talk 
to her about, she’ll ask for the script to episode 13 of the Steel 
Samurai. If you talk to her about the director, she’ll give you 
VASQUEZ’S MEMO, asking Sal Manella for the script, which goes in the 
court record. If you examine the posters on the wall, you’ll see some of 
Jack Hammer’s samurai movies. Move to the dressing room via outside 
studio two, outside studio one, the main gate, and the employee area.


Show VASQUEZ’S MEMO to Manella, but he can’t seem to find the script to 
episode 13. Maya suggests that it would be faster to look everywhere he 
might have been. Go to studio one via the employee area, main gate and 
outside studio one.


The most likely place for a director is a director’s chair, right? 
Examine the chair to get the SCRIPT for episode 13 in the court record. 
Go to the trailer via outside studio one and outside studio two.


Give Vasquez the SCRIPT. She’ll relent and talk about the day of the 
murder. There was a meeting from noon until 4:00, and she claims it was 
impossible for anybody from the trailer to go to studio one because the 
path was blocked. Talk about the blocked path.

Vasquez explains that the head of Mr. Monkey, the mascot, fell of in the 
wind and landed in the path. The head wasn’t moved out of the way until 
4:00, well after the time of death. Everyone in the trailer was stuck 
there during the murder and could not have gone to studio one. Maya 
points out that the head could have fallen after the murder, and Vasquez 
takes you outside studio one to explain.


According to Vasquez, when the head is functioning normally, it 
announces the time in ooks: one ook per hour. The clock inside is 
stopped at 2:15, before the time of death. MR. MONKEY’S HEAD is added to 
the court record. There’s nothing much you can do now, so go to the 
Wright & Co. Law Offices via the main gate.


Just when things are looking grim, Maya calls Mia in to save the day! 
Mia reminds you that you still have one lead: Cody Hackins. All you have 
to do is find a way to get him on your side. Talk about what to do and 
any ideas, then go to the studio main gate.


Wendy Oldbag is here, huffing and puffing after chasing Cody. She says 
she has a “hostage” now. Talk about the fanboy, she’s still very 
violent. Talk about the director. Oldbag changes the subject: she says 
that before she “goes” she’d like to visit the place where Hammer died.

Talk about the hostage. It seems to be something Cody would come back 
for, so Mia suggests that you can trade for it. Give her the CARDKEY so 
she can visit the site of Hammer’s death and she’ll give you the 
hostage: a STEEL SAMURAI CARD which is traded for the CARDKEY in the 
court record. Go to the dressing room via the employee area.


If you talk to Cody about the Steel Samurai or what happened, he won’t 
talk. Give him the STEEL SAMURAI CARD. It doesn’t work, he has a double 
of that card, and wants a really rare card before he’ll tell you 
anything. Move to the trailer via the employee area, main gate, outside 
studio one and outside studio two.


Talk to Penny about the fanboy to get her thoughts on Oldbag’s chase. 
Talk about Mr. Hammer, and you’ll learn that his popularity is waning 
because of “what happened”. Talk about what happened and Penny won’t say 

Present the STEEL SAMURAI CARD and agree to trade to get a URP CARD 
(Ultra Rare Premium). Move to the dressing room via outside studio two, 
outside studio one, the main gate, and the employee area.


Give Cody the URP CARD and he’ll finally agree to talk. Talk about the 
Steel Samurai. Cody asks what your favorite thing about the Steel 
Samurai is. Say it’s his fighting skills. Cody will give you his Steel 
Samurai fan album, which he calls PATH TO GLORY, for the court record. 
Talk about what happened: looks like he’s about ready to spill.

Talk about what he saw. Cody says he got to the studio around 2:00, 
through the back woods so Oldbag wouldn’t catch him. He got lost and was 
in the woods for half an hour before he found the studio. After that, he 
saw the Steel Samurai kill a bad guy! It happened so fast, he got scared 
and went home.

Phoenix and Mia agree that it would be better not to call Cody as a 
witness in court. However, Detective Gumshoe was there and saw 
everything, and Cody will be taking the stand tomorrow. Of course this 
means you’re pretty much screwed in the trial. Mia asks you if you 
really believe Mr. Powers is innocent. Say you believe, and save your 
data before the trial resumes.

TRIAL 2                                                    (3SAMURAIT2)

“The Steel Samurai always wins! Always!”-Cody Hackins

Edgeworth begins by saying he has evidence to present that will prove 
nobody else at the studio was involved in the murder. He calls his first 
witness, Sal Manella. After yet another harrowing “name and profession” 
segment, Manella gives his testimony.


Manella was at the studios from around 9:00 in the morning. During the 
morning, he was at the action-scene runthrough, which took a lot more 
time that he thought it would. He heard that everyone else ate lunch in 
the employee area, but he had a meeting in the studio two trailer, so he 
ended up skipping lunch. He was in the meeting until around 4:00. During 
the meeting, he’s pretty sure no-one left their chairs.


Remember from the investigation that two plates were found at the table 
outside studio two. This means somebody did eat lunch. Press the 
statement in which Manella says he skipped lunch. When Mia asks, say 
it’s contradictory. Manella says that he brought it to the trailer and 
thought he could eat it later, and that he wolfed it down during a 
fifteen-minute break in the meeting.

Now that you know this, press the statement in which Manella says no-one 
left their chairs. His statement about a break contradicts this. Select 
to press harder, and Manella will testify about the break.


They did take a break, but it was only fifteen minutes! Not enough time 
to commit murder in studio one. Barely enough to eat a T-bone steak!


Press all of the first three statements. Edgeworth says that this 
questioning is pointless, and that nobody in the trailer could have gone 
to studio one. The judge asks if you claim somebody from the trailer 
went to studio one. To avoid losing an exclamation point, say it’s 
impossible. Edgeworth explains about Mr. Monkey’s head.

Manella is relieved from the stand, and Edgeworth says he has another 
witness. Court takes a recess, and after an inspirational scene in the 
lobby, Edgeworth calls Cody Hackins to the stand. Yet again, he can’t 
get his witness to state his name and profession. Cody says he was at 
Global Studios on the day of the murder. CODY’S CAMERA is added to the 
court record before the testimony.


Cody wanted to see a Steel Samurai rehearsal, just once. He found a map 
on the internet, and went to the studios that day. He went through the 
woods, off the path, so the old lady wouldn’t catch him. He was going 
for the studio, but got lost along the way for about 30 minutes. When he 
came out by the studio, there was the Steel Samurai! It totally rocked! 
Right before his eyes, out came the bad guy, and of course, the Steel 
Samurai took him down! If he’d had his camera, that would have been the 
time for a shot. Anyway, he couldn’t get into the studio, so he went 


The statement at issue is the one that mentions his camera. According to 
Cody, he always has it, and yet, at the prime time for a shot, he 
didn’t! Present CODY’S CAMERA at that statement to prove this. 
Apparently, Cody didn’t take a picture because he was too busy watching. 
He will testify again.


Cody had his camera with him, but he was glued to the action and 
couldn’t take his eyes off it. The Steel Samurai went for the bad guy, 
and the bad guy stopped moving. The Steel Samurai rules!


Press the second to last and most vague of the statements (“the bad guy 
stopped moving”), and select to press him harder when prompted. Cody’s 
vague description suggests that he didn’t watch the final blow of the 
fight, even though he was “glued to the action”. The judge asks you why 
such a fan of the Steel Samurai would not have watched the best part of 
a real-life fight.

Select to show evidence. The only other thing Cody would have been 
looking at during the fight was his camera, which he was trying to 
figure out how to use! Present CODY’S CAMERA, proving that the only 
reason he looked away was that he was trying to take a picture. Phoenix 
requests that Cody testify again.


The Steel Samurai had just escaped from the clutches of the villain, so 
Cody held up his camera to take a picture. The lens wouldn’t open, 
though, so he missed it. That’s all that happened. Yup.


Press the final statement, in which Cody says that’s all that happened, 
and select to press him hard. Instead of not getting to take a picture, 
he took one, and for some reason deleted it. This adds a new statement: 
Cody took a few shots, bu they were too late, so he erased them.

Press the new statement, and Phoenix asks why Cody would erase a picture 
of the Steel Samurai victorious. Cody says he wouldn’t want to keep a 
picture like that. Present PATH TO GLORY, the fan album, at the same 
statement, and Phoenix says that with his perfect record of final blow 
shots, it’s hard to believe he would erase one!

The judge asks why he would erase them. There’s only one plausible 
explanation: there was no killing blow, because Steel Samurai didn’t win 
the fight! For Cody, it was impossible for the Steel Samurai to lose. He 
witnessed a bad guy defeating his hero, erased the photos and lied about 
ever taking them. He couldn’t handle the truth.

Cody admits you’re right: the Steel Samurai, not the bad guy, was the 
one that fell. When Edgeworth asks what’s going on, say that Steel 
Samurai was the victim. In other words, Jack Hammer, not Will Powers, 
was wearing the costume! Hammer knew about Powers’s injury, and nobody 
saw him going to studio one, nor was there a photo.

Cody says there was one piece of data he saved, a photo on his digital 
camera. The photo doesn’t look very useful, but Mia seems to think 
there’s a glaring contradiction. You’ll now be faced with finding the 
inconsistency in the photo. Look at the top-left: there’s the bottom of 
a number 2! Place the crosshairs there and present.

You now have to show the judge where the true murder took place. Select 
Studio Two with the crosshairs and hit present. The scene of the crime 
was not studio one, but studio two! It’s very significant, of course, 
because the trailer was there! In fact, Will Powers is one of the only 
people at Global Studios who could not have commited the murder.

There was a break in the meeting at 2:15, and Sal Manella and Dee 
Vasquez were eating steak outside, at the scene of the crime! The path 
was blocked at 2:15, so Hammer must have gone before then. He stole the 
costume from Powers and went to Studio Two. However, now you have to 
prove he stole the costume.

Say you have proof, and present the EMPTY BOTTLE. The label reads 
“sleeping pills” and it was found on the table where Powers and Hammer 
ate lunch. Powers spent the afternoon asleep because Hammer drugged him! 
Phoenix then mentions an idea. Select to fingerprint the bottle to give 
the EMPTY BOTTLE to the judge. 

Court is adjourned, and Phoenix has to find out why Hammer stole the 
costume and went to studio two. After a scene in the lobby, the final 
detective work sequence begins.

DETECTIVE WORK 3                                          (3SAMURAIDW3)

“Would he have let me run his life for five years over a mere 
accident?”-Dee Vasquez


Mia has turned back into Maya again, and you have to find out why Hammer 
did what he did quickly. Under the new legal system, the trial can last 
only one more day before WP is automatically guilty. Talk about the 
Steel Samurai to rehash what you need to find out. Talk about the 
director’s alibi: it’s pretty obvious, due to the circumstances, that 
either Manella or Vasquez was the killer. Talk about any ideas, then go 
to the detention center.


Talk to Powers about producer Vasquez. Powers says she’s well respected 
in the industry, and that nobody questions her because she steadily 
creates hits. Talk about director Manella. He used to direct straight-
to-video, but Vasquez brought him the idea for Steel Samurai, and now 
he’s famous, but under Vasquez’s control.

Talk about Mr. Hammer, and Maya asks why he disappeared from the 
limelight five years ago. He used to be Powers’s role model, but stopped 
taking big roles and began appearing in Global’s productions. 
Incidentally, five years ago was when Vasquez arrived at Global Studios. 
Go to the Main Gate.


Oldbag is not in high spirits. Talk about Vasquez. Apparently, she 
always gets her way because the bigwigs love her, and Oldbag’s not 
supposed to talk about her. Talk about Manella to learn that he is  soft 
and Vasquez treats him like dirt. Talk about Mr. Hammer. Oldbag gets 
very angry when you ask, and says it’s impossible for him to be a common 
criminal. Go to the employee area.


Dick Gumshoe shows up to stop you from touching any evidence, then 
reveals that he’s here to examine the plate on the table for traces of 
sleeping pills. Talk about the plate. Gumshoe says he’s going to test it 
with a special fluid that would change color on contact with sleeping 
pills. The test reveals that there were indeed sleeping pills on the 
plate, and the STEAK PLATE is added to the court record.

Talk about the investigation. Gumshoe tells you it’s a total mess, that 
the investigators are split between the case against Powers and a 
different suspect. Gumshoe says he doesn’t buy the case against Powers 
anymore, which is a good sign. Talk about Prosecutor Edgeworth. Gumshoe 
mentions that Edgeworth squeezed a paper cup full of coffee, and this 
leads Phoenix to ask about the bottle.

Gumshoe gives you the EMPTY BOTTLE and tells you that tests showed Jack 
Hammer’s prints on the bottle. Go to the dressing room.


Penny Nichols is in here cleaning up the room because “WP won’t be using 
it anymore.” She then tells you that this week is the last episode of 
the Steel Samurai. Talk about Mr. Hammer to learn that some sort of 
accident happened during filming five years ago, and that Vasquez used 
it to blackmail Hammer.

Talk about the last episode to learn that the show can’t continue 
without Hammer as the Evil Magistrate, and that Global Studios is going 
to stop making kid’s shows. Talk about studio policy to learn that the 
bigwigs want to forget this happened.

Maya tells Penny about all the kids who will be heartbroken, but Penny 
thinks they’ll find a new hero. Phoenix thinks evidence is called for, 
so present the one piece of evidence you have that will show her how 
much the kids care: Cody’s fan album, PATH TO GLORY. Penny believes 
you’re right and ask what she can do. Phoenix says she can tell them 
about the incident five years ago that wrecked Hammer’s career.

Talk about five years ago. Penny explains that someone died while 
filming a scene, and although it was an accident, it was Hammer’s fault. 
She then says to ask Oldbag more about it. Go to the main gate via the 
employee area.


Talk to Oldbag about five years ago. Oldbag gets mad that you’re 
dredging up dirt, and asks for proof that Jack Hammer stole the Steel 
Samurai costume. Say you have proof and present the same evidence that 
worked in court: the EMPTY BOTTLE. This doesn’t prove that Hammer used 
the pills on Powers, though, so present the STEAK PLATE.

Oldbag finally agrees to talk. Five years ago there was a fatal 
accident, and paparazzi took a photo of it. Vasquz made it better, 
though. She used her ties to the mafia to silence the press, then became 
a force at the studios. Oldbag gives you the FIVE-YEAR-OLD PHOTO which 
is added to the court record. Go to studiot wo via outside studio one. 
Time to put Vasquez on the spot.


Unfortunately, Vasquez is “watching the clouds” and doesn’t want to 
answer any questions. Talk about Mr. Hammer: no response. Talk about 
Will Powers. Nothing happens, but Maya’s “Fey blood” tells her that 
Vasquez is the killer. Talk about director Manella, still nothing. You 
only have one thing that can faze her, so present the FIVE-YEAR OLD 
PHOTO. Vasquez appears surprised, and asks to talk about it inside. Go 
to the trailer.


Phoenix accuses Vasquez of blackmailing Hammer and forcing him to work 
for small change. Vasquez denies this and says that Hammer destroyed his 
own career. She goes on to insinuate that what you assumed to be an 
accident was actually murder. Vasquez forces you to hand over the FIVE-
YEAR-OLD-PHOTO, and calls in her “professionals” to help her. Just as 
Phoenix and Maya are about to be “erased”, Detective Gumshoe jumps in to 
save the day, and forces Vasquez to appear in court tomorrow. Save your 
data. Time to end this!

TRIAL 3                                                    (3SAMURAIT3)

“It was Mr. Hammer who was out for blood!”-Phoenix Wright

Edgeworth notes the alternate theory you presented yesterday, and says 
that truth will become clear from the testimonies of those in the 
trailer. He then calls Dee Vasquez to testify. After Edgeworth actually 
gets her to immediately say her name and profession, she testifies.


Vasquez entered the trailer a little before noon. The meeting began at 
12:00 sharp and ended at 4:00. There was a rehearsal afterwards, so they 
went to studio one. She was fatigued, so she had Sal take her. There was 
a 15-minute break in the meeting at 2:30, during which she and Sal ate 
T-bone steaks in front of the trailer. They found Hammer’s body later, 
when they all went to studio one.

The judge asks about the “I had Sal take me” part, and Vasquez said they 
took the van. The VAN is added to the court record, and the cross-
examination begins.


The most suspicious thing in earlier testimonies has proved to be the 
eating of T-bone steak, so press the statement in which Vasquez mentions 
this. No good--Phoenix needs some evidence to prove she didn’t eat the 
steak and had time to commit murder.

Remember from your investigation of studio two that there were plates on 
the table. However, there was something odd about the plates: there were 
no bones! You can’t eat a T-bone steak and leave no bones, so present 
the STEAK PLATE (on it is a large bone) to prove this.

Phoenix says he knows how you can leave no bone after eating a T-bone 
steak. Select the only meaningful answer: that she didn’t eat the steak, 
but burned it in the incinerator. You now have to say what she was doing 
instead. Of course, she was meeting the Steel Samurai.

As Vasquez left the trailer, intending to eat her steak, she ran into 
Jack Hammer, wearing the Steel Samurai costume. Then, she killed him! 
Vasquez says that if you’re going to say she did it, then she’ll face 
you in a battle of wits.

Vasquez says that she is of “petite stature” and could not possibly 
wield the heavy SAMURAI SPEAR. When prompted to reply, agree and say she 
couldn’t. However, that doesn’t mean she couldn’t have done it: the 
spear was not the murder weapon! You now have to prove this.

Recall that the SAMURAI SPEAR was broken the morning before the murder, 
and that Wendy Oldbag fixed the shaft with duct tape. It’s not possible 
to use something so flimsy to pierce the chest of a man wearing a heavy 
costume! Present the SAMURAI SPEAR to prove it.

Vasquez angrily asks what was the murder weapon if it wasn’t the spear. 
Select that you can tell them, and you’ll have to present the true 
murder weapon. Remember another death that happened in just about the 
same place: that’s right, the one in which Hammer was involved. Present 
the FIVE-YEAR OLD PHOTO. The fencepost pierced Hammer’s chest!

Phoenix describes the situation in detail. It’s 2:30 on the day of the 
crime. Dee Vasquez meets Jack Hammer outside the studio two trailer, and 
pushes Hammer off the stairs onto the fence, exactly like what happened 
five years ago.

Edgeworth and Vasquez bring up another problem: how could she have 
carried the body to studio one and placed it in the Evil Magistrate’s 
outfit during a break that was only fifteen minutes long? Say that she 
had another way, and present the best mode of transportation in the 
court record: the VAN.

Vasquez used the VAN to carry the body to studio one, and placed the 
body in the costume before anybody else arrived. Edgeworth says that Sal 
Manella drove the van. When asked, say that Manella was a conspirator. 
Vasqeuz had to dispose of the body, change the costumes, and destroy the 
Steel Samurai outfit: she couldn’t have done it alone.

The costume was covered in Hammer’s blood, so Vasquez and Manella burned 
it in that ever-useful incinerator. Upon Phoenix finishing this 
accusation, Vasquez appears to admit defeat, throwing the courtroom into 
awkward confusion.

Vasquez then says that you have only proved that she could have done it, 
and not that she did do it. She tells you that you don’t have decisive 
proof. Edgeworth doesn’t seem too sure about things, but Vasquez tries 
to leave. Force her to testify again!

Vasquez tells you it’s a dead end, and the judge tries to end the cross-
examination, but an objection is raised by none other than Edgeworth! He 
forces Vasquez to testify about what happened after she found the body. 
Apparently, Edgeworth’s finally realized she’s guilty. 


Vasquez was with Sal and Oldbag when they found the body. The assistant 
was there too, and the only one absent was Will Powers. Vasquez called 
the police, and then Powers showed up. Oldbag was agitated, and pointed 
at Powers, saying, “he did it!”. Vasquez asked to be left out of the 
proceedings. She went back to the trailer to get her script and 
production notes, then went home.


Press the statement about the script and production notes, and Vasquez 
explains that they’re valuable and she didn’t want them stolen. Press 
harder, and Phoenix asks why she didn’t bring her notes to a rehearsal. 
Vasquez thought they wouldn’t be able to rehearse anything because of 
the murder. Edgeworth raises an objection, though.

Edgeworth says this means Vasquez would have had to know about the 
murder before going to studio one for the rehearsal. Everybody is 
surprised that the prosecution is supporting the defence’s case, and 
Vasquez must explain. A statement is added to her testimony saying that 
she knew Hammer was injured and couldn’t do any scenes.

Now that you worked so hard to get that statement to appear, it’s 
obvious you have to do something with it, so press it. Apparently Sal 
Manella told Vasquez that Hammer was injured. Wait a minute, though! It 
wasn’t Hammer who was injured, it was Powers! Present POWERS’S(?) PHOTO 
to bring up this contradiction.

Vasquez says Sal must have gotten it wrong, but Phoenix explains that 
Manella was there when Powers was injured, so he would have known. Say 
that Vasquez saw Hammer limping, while he prentended to be Powers. He 
was only limping after he put on the costume and went to the scene of 
the crime. This proves that Vasquez saw him limping just before he died, 
and thus, that she was there when he was killed!

It’s not over yet. Vasquez needs one more thing: a motive. Say that you 
can prove it, and you’ll have to present evidence. The piece of evidence 
most relevant to any motives in this case is the FIVE-YEAR-OLD PHOTO, so 
present that. This is a photo of the incident that Vasquez held over 
Hammer and used to blackmail him. Phoenix can safely make this 
accusation now that Vasquez has no mafia goons with her.

However, as the judge points out, this would only be evidence if Hammer 
had killed Vasquez. In fact, Vasquez would have no reason to kill a 
source of income. You now have to explain Vasquez’s motives. You might 
be tempted to show evidence, but instead, select that she had no motive. 
It was Hammer that drugged powers, stole the costume, tricked Oldbag, 
and tried to kill Vasquez. She had merely pushed him off the stairs in 

Vasquez finally confesses, and we get a short scene in which a man named 
Manuel is killed by Hammer, five years ago. The judge declares Will 
Powers NOT GUILTY!!! It’s still not over, though. In the lobby, Powers 
asks Phoenix why Hammer would want to frame him. Select to show 
evidence, and present PATH TO GLORY. Hammer wanted to frame Powers 
because Powers was the Steel Samurai, beloved by kids, and Hammer was 
playing the villain in a kid’s show.

Enjoy the ending cutscene for this case, in which Edgeworth once again 
claims to know Phoenix, and the Pink Princess is introduced. An even 
more intense trial is coming up, so get ready!

EPISODE 4: TURNABOUT GOODBYES                               (4GOODBYES)

VICTIM: Robert Hammond
DEFENDANT: Miles Edgeworth
WITNESS LIST: Dick Gumshoe, Lotta Hart, Boat Shop Caretaker, Larry Butz, 
Polly the Parrot, Miles Edgeworth

You read that right: the defendant this time around is Miles Edgeworth. 
In the opening scene he shoots a man on a boat in the middle of a lake: 
or does he? Phoenix and Maya’s investigation of this case will lead to 
the mysterious DL-6 incident, and involve such misadventures as a search 
for a lake monster, cross-examination of a parrot, and a trial against 
one of the most evil prosecutors in the business. All this leads up the 
high-tension final trial, my personal favorite sequence in the entire 

DETECTIVE WORK 1                                         (4GOODBYESDW1)

“Prove that badge you wear isn’t just some fancy piece of metal!”-Dick 

The episode opens with a scene of two men on a boat, one of whom is 
Miles Edgeworth who may or may not have shot the other one. After that, 
the detective work sequence starts at the Wright & Co. Law Offices.


Maya is looking for a good waterfall in the area so she can continue her 
spirit medium training. Phoenix suggests she just take a cold shower, 
and she runs off. The TV then plays a news report about “Gourdy” a 
large, unidentified animal found in nearby Gourd Lake. The news then 
switches to the murder on Gourd Lake.

The body of a man was found in the lake early this morning, and police 
have arrested Miles Edgeworth as the suspect. Phoenix tells Maya, who 
says they should go find out about it. Talk to her about what to do and 
any ideas, then go to the detention center.


Here, you’ll meet Edgeworth, who’s not in a good mood. Talk to him about 
what happened. He asks what you’ll do about it. Maya says you’ll help 
him, but Edgeworth doesn’t want you to since you’re a novice. Talk about 
Gourd Lake to ask him why he was down there. Edgeworth relents and says 
he went to see Gourdy.

It seems Edgeworth doesn’t want your help, so present the ATTORNEY’S 
BADGE. Phoenix asks Edgeworth to let him defend him, but Edgeworth still 
doesn’t want you to. Apparently, though, every defence attorney he’s 
talked to has turned him down. Talk about did you do it. Edgeworth tells 
Phoenix to think what he will, but requests that he stay out of the 
case. Go to the Gourd Lake Entrance.


There are some police walking around, including Detective Gumshoe, who 
is chewing out his men about the lack of good clues. He seems quite 
ready to help you, although he seems unhappy that Edgeworth hasn’t asked 
you to defend him. Talk about what happened. Apparently, 15 minutes 
after midnight, there was a boat on Gourd Lake with two men in it. One 
of them, Edgeworth, shot the other with a pistol, and a cop on the scene 
arrested him.

Maya asks how he got there so fast, and Gumshoe says there was a witness 
who made a call. Talk about Edgeworth. Gumshoe fervently denies that he 
could be a murderer, and that he doesn’t believe the case even though 
there’s a witness. However, the police are so convinced it was Edgeworth 
that they’re not even taking the investigation seriously.

Talk about the defence request. It’s true that nobody will take 
Edgeworth’s case. He’s a celebrity, and your reputation would take a big 
hit if you lost. Also, the case against him is very solid. Gumshoe 
reminds you about Edgeworth’s help with the Steel Samurai incident, and 
tells you not to turn your back. He’s mystified, though, that Edgeworth 
would not want your help.

Talk about the witness to learn that their identity is confidential, but 
they saw everything and were the only witness. Gumshoe is then called 
off to an investigation brief meeting, and asks if you need to ask him 
anything first. Ask about the autopsy report. The report hasn’t been 
made yet, but if you need anything, you can talk to him at the criminal 
affairs department. He also gives you permission to look inside the 
park. Go to the public beach.


Nobody’s here, so examine the object on the bench near the screen. It 
turns out it’s a popper, and Maya asks to take it. Select to take it, 
and the POPPER is added the the court record. Go to gourd lake woods.


On the left-hand screen of this area, examine the camera. The camera is 
rigged to a device that makes it automatically take pictures at loud 
noises. Maya tries to set it off, but to no avail. She then remembers 
the POPPER, and sets it off, removing it from the court record. This 
sets off the camera snapping pictures, and Lotta Hart shows up to yell 
at you. Apparently, you used a whole roll of film.

Talk about what happened and her name, but she won’t answer because 
she’s changing the film on her camera. You need something to get her to 
talk to you. Maybe she’d talk if she knew you were a lawyer? Present the 
ATTORNEY’S BADGE and Lotta will loosen up. She’s at Gourd Lake to 
research meteor showers.

Talk about what happened, and Lotta says she thinks she might have seen 
a boat, but couldn’t tell it apart from any others she’s seen. Talk 
about Lotta to learn that she’s a research student at Country U and came 
to the lake three days ago to photograph meteors. Talk about the camera 
to learn that it is programmed to take pictures when it detects loud 
noises. LOTTA’S CAMERA is added to the court record.

Hmm...if the camera is programmed that way, wouldn’t it take pictures on 
a gunshot? Present LOTTA’S CAMERA to bring this up. Lotta goes back into 
her car to check her photos and see if there’s one of the murder. For 
now, go to the criminal affairs department via the public beach and 
Gourd Lake entrance.


It looks like Gumshoe is out of his meeting, but he doesn’t seem very 
happy. Talk to him about the victim--they still can’t figure out who he 
is. Talk about the meeting. Gumshoe says he doesn’t know what to believe 
anymore, that everyone thinks Edgeworth is guilty and that you need to 
stand by him. Talk about trusting Edgeworth to learn that he and Gumshoe 
have a strong “working relationship”.

Edgeworth has a good reason for using extreme methods to get a guilty 
verdict: he trusts the police department’s investigation. Talk about the 
autopsy report to add the AUTOPSY REPORT to the court record. Maya then 
asks about the photo of the victim, and seems to recall that she met him 
a long time ago. Read the AUTOPSY REPORT, then go to Gourd Lake Woods 
via Gourd Lake entrance and the public beach.


Lotta shows up and announces that she’s found bingo: a photo of the 
murder! Unfortunately, there’s too much fog to see who’s who. However, 
the photo reminds Lotta that she’s a witness to the murder, and asks if 
she should talk to the cops. Pick either answer, it doesn’t matter. 
Lotta runs off to talk to the police, and the LAKE PHOTO is added to the 
court record. Go to the public beach.


Here, a man in a Santa Claus outfit seems to be mad at Phoenix, until he 
takes his hood off and is revealed to be Larry Butz from episode 1. 
Larry is here working his day job as a hot dog salesman, and is wearing 
the costume on the idea of his new girfriend, Kiyance. Talk to him about 
what happened to fill him in about the murder on the lake.

Larry doesn’t seem interested until he learns about Edgeworth, who he 
seems to know. Apparently, he and Edgeworth were in grade school 
together. Talk about Edgeworth, and you’ll learn that Phoenix, Larry, 
and Edgeworth all used to be friends. Edgeworth was always trying to be 
like his father, a famous defence attorney. Maya is confused--why did he 
become a prosecutor?

Talk about Samurai Dogs. They used to be “Gourd Dogs” but Kiyance 
recommended that Larry change the name. They’re very popular, and he’s 
getting lots of customers since Gourdy was seen. Talk about Gourdy to 
learn that he’s a giant monster living in the lake. Larry shows you a 
newspaper article with a photograph. A quote from the person who took 
the photograph says they heard a loud bang followed by the sound of 
something falling into the water.

The GOURDY ARTICLE is added to the court record. Go to the criminal 
affairs department via Gourd Lake entrance.


Gumshoe is in the questioning room with Lotta Hart...things don’t look 
good. Go to the Wright & Co. Law Offices.


Maya asks to see the autopsy one more time. Suddenly, she realizes who 
the man is: a lawyer who used to work with Mia! He worked at Grossberg’s 
office, so Phoenix thinks it might be a good idea to go there and talk 
to Grossberg. Go to the Grossberg law offices.


Grossberg greets you, and quickly senses that something is wrong. Talk 
to him about what happened, and he is as surprised as everybody else to 
learn that Edgeworth shot somebody. Talk about the painting to learn 
that he doesn’t think its ever coming back to the office. Present the 

Grossberg remembers that the man was a lawyer in his office, Robert 
Hammond. Talk about Robert Hammond to learn that he was the defence 
attorney in the DL-6 incident, the case where the police were at such a 
loss that they used Mia and Maya’s mother, a spirit medium, to find the 
killer. Talk about the DL-6 incident.

The DL-6 incident happened 15 years ago. Misty Fey spoke to the late 
victim, and found a suspect. However, Robert Hammond got the man 
declared innocent, and the police called Misty a fraud. Maya asks what 
the case has to do with Edgeworth, and Grossberg reveals that the victim 
was his father, Gregory Edgeworth!

MISTY FEY’S PHOTO is added to the court record. Time to talk to 
Edgeworth, so go the detention center.


Talk to Edgeworth about what happened and Gourd Lake, and he will not 
answer either question. Present MISTY FEY’S PHOTO to get him to talk. 
Edgeworth says that he didn’t want you near the case because he didn’t 
want you finding out about DL-6. However, now he’s ready to tell you. 
Talk about the DL-6 incident.

The DL-6 incident was when Edgeworth’s father died. Right before his 
eyes, his father was shot, and he saw it all. A suspect was arrested, 
the only man who could have killed his father. The spirit medium said 
the same thing, but the man was proven innocent by Robert Hammond, the 
victim in the Gourd Lake murder.

Edgeworth says that he thought the incident was about to end because the 
statute of limitations was about to run out. Maya asks what this means, 
and Phoenix explains that, fifteen years after a case occurs, it legally 
never happened. DL-6 would have been closed in just three days.

Talk about the suspect to learn that he went into hiding after being 
declared innocent, and that he would be about 50 now. Talk about your 
father. Gregory Edgeworth was quite a famous defence attorney in his 
time, but Edgeworth would rather not talk about it.

Present the LAKE PHOTO. Phoenix asks if Edgeworth shot Hammond, but 
Edgeworth says no. He then asks you to defend him, although it “pains” 
him. Say you will, and Phoenix says he can finally pay Edgeworth back. 
EDGEWORTH’S REQUEST is added the court record. Suddenly, a small 
earthquake starts, and Edgeworth curls up on the floor in a ball...he 
seems to have some kind of huge fear of earthquakes.

The questioning is over, so go to the criminal affairs department.


Gumshoe is angry at you for finding Lotta Hart. Talk about Lotta’s 
testimony. She saw saw Edgeworth fire the pistol, and had a photograph 
to prove it. You can’t see who’s shooting, but Lotta said she would 
enlarge the photo, making it easier to tell who’s firing. Talk about 
tomorrow’s trial. The case seems to be unwinnable, but as Mia always 
said, if he’s innocent, there’s something that’s been overlooked.

Talk about Edgeworth. He wants a public defender, but you already have 
his request for defence! Present it. Gumshoe starts the paperwork, but 
remembers the earthquake and says that he was worried about Edgeworth. 
There’s definitely something with Edgeworth and earthquakes, but it 
wasn’t there when he and Phoenix were in school together. Anyway, it’s 
time for the trial to begin!

TRIAL 1                                                   (4GOODBYEST1)

“Just look at the picture! Clear enough for you?”-Lotta Hart

In the lobby, Edgeworth introduces you to the case’s prosecutor, Manfred 
von Karma, a “god of prosecution” with a 40-year winning streak. He’ll 
do anything to get a guilty verdict, which sounds a little like 
Edgeworth, only multiplied by ten. Great. Von Karma was Edgeworth’s 
teacher, somewhat like what Mia was to you.

Speaking of which, Phoenix tells Maya that her sister would be a big 
help. Maya can’t cal her, though, because she hasn’t been training 
lately. Time to start the trial. Von Karma appears to have the judge 
completely terrified: yet another thing working against you.

In von Karma’s opening statement, he says that decisive evidence and a 
decisive witness are all that are needed to prove Edgeworth guilty. He 
then calls Dick Gumshoe, who describes the incident. The murder happened 
around midnight on Christmas Eve, and there was one boat in the middle 
of the lake, with two men in it.

There was a woman camping on the edge of the lake, who heard two 
gunshots at 12:10 AM. Then the boat moved back to the rental shop. The 
OVERHEAD MAP is added to the court record. Gumshoe then gives a 
testimony on the arrest.


A man called into the station 30 minutes after midnight, and they headed 
to the crime scene as fast as they could. That’s where they found 
Edgeworth. Gumshoe didn’t suspect anything, but they found a body in the 
lake next morning, so they had to arrest him.


The weakest statement appears to be the last one, in which they arrest 
Mr. Edgeworth. Why would he have been immediately linked to the body? 
Press the final statement, and Gumshoe explains they arrested him 
because they found the murder weapon, a pistol, in the boat.

A statement is added to the testimony saying that the weapon in the boat 
was decisive evidence, although he doesn’t explain why. Press the new 
statement to ask what about the pistol made it evidence. There were 
fingerprints on the gun, clearly from Edgeworth’s right hand.

The PISTOL is added to the court record. The next statement to press is 
the one about the body found in the lake. Phoenix asks if any clues were 
found on the body, and Gumshoe shows a single PISTOL BULLET that is 
added to the court record.

Von Karma asks if the bullet from the body was fired from the pistol, 
and Gumshoe says it was, as the ballistic markings match. Maya doesn’t 
know what this means, so von Karma makes the judge explain. Ballistic 
markings are distinctive marks left on each bullet as it fires--sort of 
like a gun’s fingerprints.

The evidence is very clearly against Edgeworth, but the judge wants to 
hear Lotta speak, so von Karma agrees to put her on the stand after a 
ten-minute break. Phoenix yells at Edgeworth about the prints, and 
Edgeworth admits that he was in the boat but didn’t shoot him.

However, he doesn’t know who did. He says that he heard a gunshot from 
somewhere close by, then the other man in the boat fell in the water. He 
can’t say why, but thought the man shot himself. Meanwhile, Maya hasn’t 
made any progress with Mia, and believes that she’s useless if she can’t 
call her sister.

Phoenix is a nice guy, so tell her you need her there. Maya thinks 
you’re just making her feel better, that she doesn’t know anything about 
defence, and is a medium who can’t contact spirits. Trial soon 
reconvenes, and Lotta is called to testify.


It was Christman Eve, just after midnight, and she was in her car. She 
heard a bang come from up the lake, looked out the window, and saw two 
men in a boat. Then there was another bang. There wasn’t anything on the 
lake but that boat.

Von Karma presents the photo of the moment of the murder. He then says 
that there were no other boats on the lake, so nobody but Edgeworth 
could have shot Hammond. The judge is about to find Edgeworth guilty, 
but Phoenix objects. Von Karma says he will only flounder, and then will 
be held in contempt of court.

Von Karma then asks if you claim to have found a contradiction, and when 
Maya asks, say there was. You are allowed, barely, to cross-examine.


Begin by pressing the first statement. It was just after midnight, so 
that means it was Christmas day, not Christmas eve. However, this isn’t 
too important. Press the second statement (“I was in my car”) to learn 
that Lotta was camping to take pictures for research.

Choose to press further, and Pheonix asks Lotta to be more specific 
about her research. Von Karma objects, and sustains his own objection, 
saying this is “not relevant”. Press the third statement about the bang 
from up the lake.

This proves that at that time she was not looking at the lake. Press the 
fourth statement (“two gents in a boat”). She couldn’t see them clearly, 
but tells you to look at the picture. Press further, and Phoenix brings 
up that he wasn’t asking her about the photo, bu if she herself saw the 
two men.

Von Karma jumps in and says that she has testified that she saw them. He 
jumped quick, though--he’s hiding something. Continue in order to press 
the fifth statement about “another bang”. Lotta was not watching the 
moment the shot rang out, but von Karma stops you from talking again. 
What an asshole...and you’ll only grow to hate him more.

Press the final statement to ask if Lotta was sure that the boat was the 
only thing on the lake. She says she’s sure, but you should press 
further. Lotta says she scanned the whole lake, which is odd, because to 
do that she would have to be more interested in the lake than she was in 
the boat.

Von Karma objects again, and the judge says that they’ve heard enough. 
He will have to hold Phoenix in contempt of court if he has any more 
“outbursts”. The testimony, according to Maya, is very fishy, but the 
judge is about to make his decision anyway.

Suddenly, you are saved by an unknown objection. It was Maya! She says 
that the testimony stinks, that it’s unclear if she was looking at the 
lake and that it’s doubtful she saw Edgeworth. She then asks Lotta if 
she really saw Edgeworth fire the pistol. Lotta swears she did, and the 
judge declares Phoenix in contempt of court.

Suddenly, Maya stops the proceedings again, saying that she made the 
outburst and that she must leave. Von Karma says it makes no difference, 
and that all that remains is for the guilty verdict to be declared. Of 
course you should disagree with this.

Phoenix points out that Lotta says she clearly saw Mr. Edgeworth, and 
that that was not in the testimony. The testimony changes, and you have 
a right to cross-examine again. Von Karma objects, but the judge 
overrules him! Finally, the guy shoes some backbone!

Maya leaves the court, and cross-examination begins again.


Lotta saw clear as day that the man on the boat was Edgeworth.


As tempting as it may be, do NOT press this statement, as it will result 
in a penalty.

Perfect. What contradictions are you supposed to find in a testimony of 
one statement? However, there is something. Check the LAKE PHOTO again. 
It’s shrouded in fog, and you can’t see the faces of the men. Even on 
high-quality film, you can’t see through the fog!

Lotta could not have identified Edgeworth with her eyes, so present the 
LAKE PHOTO. Von Karma says he told her not to say that, but now she has 
said it, and must explain. Lotta now has to testify about the sighting! 
Yes! You did it!


It was a cold night, and the fog was thick as grits. Once she was 
finished setting up the camera, she got back in the car, bringing her 
binoculars with her. When she heard that noise on the lake, she looked 
with her binoculars.


Lotta was looking for meteor showers, as she mentioned yesterday. Why, 
then, did she have binoculars and not a telescope? Press the third 
statement, in which she mentions bringing the binoculars to the car. You 
will ask that question. Phoenix doubts the camera was there for meteor 
showers, either.

Von Karma thinks that the camera is irrelevant. The judge says that you 
can keep questioning if it is relevant, and von Karma says there will be 
consquences if it’s not. Choose to press further, and a new statement is 
added saying that the camera was there to take pictures of a meteor 

Press the new statement. Phoenix asks what made Lotta choose Gourd Lake, 
with its thick fog, to photograph meteors. She says she wasn’t thinking 
too straight. Now, here’s where you can get her. In the LAKE PHOTO, the 
camera is pointed directly as the lake. If she was stargazing, it would 
have been pointed at the sky!

Present the LAKE PHOTO. Phoenix says the Lotta was not on the lake to 
photograph shooting stars, and the judge asks what she was 
photographing. Well, what else is there on Gourd Lake to take pictures 
of? That’s right, Gourdy! Select to show evidence, and present the 

You now have to prove that Lotta was photographing Gourdy. Say you have 
proof. Remember, Lotta’s camera was set up to take pictures on loud 
noises. The article about Gourdy states that he made a loud noise when 
he emerged! The camera was set to photograph Gourdy on this noise.

However, Lotta and von Karma make a new objection: what does it matter? 
The fact that Lotta was photographing Gourdy doesn’t change what she 
saw. However, that fact that she was hiding it means that it has some 
kind of significance. Lotta testifies again.


Lotta’s not a research student at a university, she’s an investigative 
photographer. Imagine what a scoop it would be if she got a picture of 
that monster! That’s why she was camping out by the lake, but that’s all 
she was hiding. When she heard the bang she looked straight out at the 
lake. There wasn’t much else to look at, so she just watched the boat 
the whole time. She saw a flash near one of the men’s hands, and heard 
another gunshot. She was looking at the boat the whole time.

As the judge reminds you, this is your last chance. If no contradiction 
is found, Lotta will leave and Edgeworth will be guilty.


There’s a big contradiction in here. When Lotta heard the bang, she 
looked at the lake. However, she watched the boat the whole time, when 
she should have been looking for Gourdy! Press the statement where she 
says this (“There wasn’t much else to look at, so I watched the boat the 
whole time”).

Phoenix says it’s time for some evidence. Go to the same statement and 
present the GOURDY ARTICLE. Of course, if Lotta heard any noise, she’d 
scan the lake for signs of Gourdy! She wouldn’t give the boat any 
thought. She wasn’t looking at the boat!

Lotta testified that she saw the boat through binoculars, but she 
wouldn’t need those to see a boat. She’d need them to look for Gourdy, 
which is what she was doing. Lotta admits that she wasn’t looking at the 
boat, but that the photograph is still proof.

The judge says they still can’t see who’s shooting. Lotta starts to say 
something about the photo, but von Karma stops her. However, Phoenix 
remembers Gumshoe saying that the photo would be enlarged. The enlarged 
photo must show something bad for von Karma, so make her show the 
enlargement. Von Karma obviously doesn’t want it to be shown, bu Lotta 
presents it anyway.

They still can’t see who’s firing, though. Regardless, the enlarged LAKE 
PHOTO is added to the court record. The judge tries to end the trial 
here, but Phoenix knows there’s a clue. Object to the enlargement, and 
you’ll have to show what’s strange about it.

Look at the man firing the pistol. He’s holding it in his left hand, 
when prints from a right hand were found on the gun! Place the cursor 
over the left hand holding the gun and present. You now have to show 
what evidence it contradicts. Present the PISTOL.

The man in the photo is firing with his left hand, but the prints were 
from Edgeworth’s right hand. This means that Edgeworth could not have 
fired the gun! The judge points out a problem: if Edgeworth didn’t fire 
the gun, who did? You now have to show who fired the gun.

Remember what Edgeworth said: he thought the man shot himself. Say that 
it was the victim himself who fired. Von Karma says it couldn’t have 
been suicide. Examination of Hammond’s wound shows that he was shot from 
further than a meter away. ROBERT’S AUTOPSY REPORT is updated in the 
court record.

The judge gives his opinion. The situation shows Edgeworth as being the 
shooter, but prints show it couldn’t have been him. Therefore, court 
will be suspended for a day so the matter can be investigated. After a 
short scene in the lobby, Phoenix is given a transcript of Lotta’s 
testimony. LOTTA’S DEPOSITION is added to the court record.

DETECTIVE WORK 2                                         (4GOODBYESDW2)

“Don’t forget DL-6!”-Polly the Parrot


Phoenix goes to see Maya at the Detention Center. She doesn’t know why 
she shouted, but she did save the trial. Talk about questioning, and 
Maya says that Gumshoe promised to let her go after being questioned. 
Also, Phoenix has to pay the bail. Talk about Mia. Maya still can’t get 
through to her, probably because she stopped her training. Go to the 
Criminal Affairs Department.


Detective Gumshoe isn’t here, he’s out at the crime scene. One of the 
other officers tells you he got into a fight with the chief because he 
wouldn’t build the case against Edgeworth. Go to Gourd Lake Woods via 
the entrance and public beach.


Gumshoe is here, and doesn’t know how to thank you for the trial today. 
Talk about tomorrow’s trial. Phoenix asks about von Karma’s strategy, 
and Gumshoe says he has another witness. During the trial, he said there 
were two witnesses. Unfortunately, Gumshoe can’t tell you who he is. 
Talk about Prosecutor Edgeworth.

Phoenix asks about Edgeworth’s odd fear of earthquakes. Gumshoe says 
Edgeworth never talks about himself, but that his becoming a prosecutor 
and hating crime and earthquakes all started with the DL-6 incident, 
when his father was shot before his eyes.

Talk about Maya Fey. Gumshoe tells you that Edgeworth is extremely 
grateful for what she did in court, even though he didn’t show it. Also, 
Edgeworth’s going to post her bail. As Gumshoe recommended, go back to 
the Detention Center via the public beach and entrance to pick up Maya.


Phoenix tells Maya about Edgeworth posting bail. Talk about what to do 
and Maya suggests they look around Gourd Lake. Talk about any ideas, 
then go to the Gourd Lake Entrance.


Lotta is here. She tells you that she did a bit of self-reflection and 
decided that she should have taken being a witness more seriously. So 
she’s decided to make it up to you. Talk about today’s trial, and Lotta 
says she was just convincing herself that she saw something because she 
wanted to be a witness.

Talk about Gourdy. Lotta thinks the trial is “stoking the flames of 
Gourdy fever” and that her photographs will make her a star. Talk about 
making it up, and Lotta says she has some information, and will exchange 
for it. Select “deal” and Lotta tells you she’ll trade for information 
on Gourdy.

Phoenix reluctantly agrees to look for Gourdy, so go to the Gourd Lake 
public beach.


Here you’ll find Larry, as well as a large inflatable Steel Samurai. It 
was Kiyance’s idea; she got them for free because, as we know, the 
show’s ended. Talk to Larry about Edgeworth. Larry asks what happened, 
and Phoenix explains that they got through the first day of court all 
right, but prospects don’t look good from here.

Maya then mentions that Edgeworth’s terrified of earthquakes, and Larry 
says he wasn’t like that in school. They were only in the same class for 
a year, though, as Edgeworth transferred right after the DL-6 incident. 
Talk about the Big Samurai. Larry says he’s had it about a month, but it 
wasn’t up yesterday because the compressor was busted.

The compressor is the little device by the hot dog stand that pumps air 
into the inflatable samurai. Examine the compressor. Larry says he just 
got it repaired. Go to the criminal affairs department via the Gourd 
Lake entrance.


Talk to Gumshoe about the investigation. He says there’s about to be a 
meeting about Mr. Edgeworth’s motive. His father died in the DL-6 
incident, and the man who got the only suspect declared innocent is the 
victim, Robert Hammond. Talk about Gourdy.

Gumshoe is slightly confused until you explain. He then offers to loan 
you one of the secret weapons for finding evidence. Talk about secret 
weapons to get three choices: MISSILE, a K-9 police dog; Gumshoe’s 
one you want to borrow. However, there are funny scenes if you take 
MISSILE to the public beach or the FISHING POLE to the woods.

Once you have the METAL DETECTOR in the court record, go to the boat 
rental shop via Gourd Lake Entrance and the public beach.


When you arrive, the METAL DETECTOR starts reacting to something. Maya 
goes to look for it in the bushes, and finds an AIR TANK with a broken 
valve and a string of flags wrapped around it. This will go in the court 
record. That string of flags looks a lot like Larry’s, so go to the 
public beach to talk to him about it.


Present the AIR TANK to Larry. Phoenix says he wants to ask Larry about 
it. Select “is it yours?”. Larry asks you why he’d need an air tank, so 
select “to inflate something”. Larry must have used this to inflate the 
big Steel Samurai. He explains that his compressor was broken, so he 
used the air tank to pump air instead.

Apparently it didn’t go so well. Select to ask more about the tank. 
Larry tells you that when he used the air tank to inflate the Steel 
Samurai, the valve burst off. The tank and samurai flew into the air and 
landed in Gourd Lake. Talk about the flying air tank.

It exploded a week ago, and since then Larry’s been out in a boat every 
night looking for it. He found it the night before last, on the night of 
the murder! Larry was there on the night, but went home before midnight, 
so he didn’t see anything. Phoenix says they’ve solved one mystery. Of 
course! The flying air tank must have been Gourdy!

Go to the woods to tell Lotta about this.


Talk to Lotta about what happened, then talk about Gourdy. Lotta asks if 
you’ve found Gourdy yet. Say “we found him. Lotta asks for proof, so say 
you have it and present the AIR TANK. This is Gourdy: when the Samurai 
flew into the lake, the photo made it look like a monster.

Lotta is somewhat dejected, but agrees to talk. Talk about case 
information. Lotta tells you that the new witness is the caretaker of 
the boat rental shop. There’s also something else: Lotta’s camera 
clicked twice on the night of the murder, and although the other photo 
shows nothing but lake, she gives it to you anyway.

The SECOND LAKE PHOTO is added to the court record, after which you 
should go to the boat rental shop via the public beach.


You can now go inside the shop, so enter.


The crazy owner of the shop appears, believes you are his children, 
“Meg” and “Keith”, and asks you to run the shop, which he thinks is a 
pasta restaurant. His parrot, Polly, also greets you. He subsequently 
falls asleep. Talk to him about the pasta restaurant. He rants for a 
while, but says nothing useful.

Phoenix believes he must know something about the murder, so talk about 
the boat rental shop. He still believes he runs the “Wet Noodle” 
although he gets orders for boats often. This guy has nothing useful to 
say, so examine his parrot. He won’t talk to Maya, and the caretaker 
explains that you have to call his name first.

The PARROT is added to the court record. The caretaker says Polly can 
say lots of things if you know the secret words. Talk about Polly. The 
caretaker says that he can’t remember things very well, so he tells 
important things to Polly. Maya asks the number of the safe, and Polly 
tells her: it’s 1228.

You have to get him to talk about the murder, so present the ATTORNEY’S 
BADGE (it worked on Lotta). He recognizes the badge and realizes that 
you’re not Keith and Meg. Phoenix explains that they’re lawyers 
investigating a murder. The caretaker says that he’ll help if you 
promise to run the Wet Noodle.

It doesn’t matter what you say, so pick yes or no. You now have to get 
him to talk to you about the murder (again). Present the LAKE PHOTO, the 
first one, with the murder in it. He says he saw it and knows all about 
it. Talk about what you saw.

The caretaker says that it was pretty dark, and he heard a bang, so he 
looked outside. After that, he heard another one. Later, a boat came 
back, and a young man walked by his window, muttering to himself. He 
doesn’t remember what he said, though.
Phoenix says they should leave, but Maya remembers that she had one more 
question. She asks Polly, “have we forgotten something?”. Polly speaks a 
mysterious phrase: “Don’t forget DL-6!” The old caretaker is starting to 
seem very mysterious.


Back outside, the old man locked the door. He must have some connection 
to DL-6, so Phoenix decides to do some more research. Go to the criminal 
affairs department via the public beach and entrance.


Talk to Gumshoe about the boat caretaker. Maya asks who the old man is, 
but Gumshoe doesn’t know. He hasn’t been able to get a straight answer 
out of him either. It’s definitely suspicious. Talk about the DL-6 
incident. Gumshoe says he doesn’t know much about DL-6, and that 
Edgeworth forbade anybody from reading the file. You have to convince 
him that DL-6 is relevant to the case before you can see the file.

Present the PARROT, who knew about the DL-6 incident. The old man must 
have taught her to say that, so he might have been connected to DL-6! 
Gumshoe gives you access to the records room so you can find what you 
need to know. Go to the records room.


Maya finds the section on DL-6, so all you have to do is tell her what 
you need to know. Talk about the case summary. December 28, 2001, 
fifteen years ago the day after tomorrow, the incident took place in the 
elevator of the district court. At 2:00, there was an earthquake that 
shut off power to the building.

At that time, three people were stuck in an elevator, from which they 
would not be rescued for five hours. Oxygen was running thin, and they 
fell unconsious. One of them, Miles Edgeworth’s father, had been shot 
through the heart. Miles was one of the others in the elevator.

Talk about victim data. Gregory Edgeworth was 35 when he was killed, and 
would have been 50 today had he not died. He lost a case that day, and 
got in the elevator with his son Miles. Evidence proved that his death 
wasn’t suicide, and the pistol used to kill him was found in the 
elevator, fired twice.

Talk about suspect data. The suspect would be the man Misty Fey got 
arrested. The man’s name was Yanni Yogi, a court clerk. He was the third 
person in the elevator, but was found innocent by Robert Hammond, the 
victim in the current case. Mr. Yogi was so oxygen-deprived that his 
brain became damaged, and he lost all memory of the incident.

Yogi disappeared after being found innocent. You now know what went on, 
although you’re still not sure of the effect on Miles. The DL-6 CASE 
FILE and DL-6 INCIDENT PHOTO are added to the court record. Time for the 

TRIAL 2                                                   (4GOODBYEST2)

“I can’t just sit here and let you call Edgey a murderer!”-Larry Butz

Von Karma begins by taking his assholery to a whole new level. He 
predicts that the trial will end three minutes from now. He then calls 
the boat shop caretaker to the stand. You don’t know who the old guy is, 
though, so raise an objection. Apparently, he’s not really sure what his 
name is. Von Karma explains that he cannot remember farther back than 
the last several years.


It was the night of the 24th, just after midnight. He was in the 
restaurant, where he rents boats. Then he heard a bang, looked out the 
window, and saw a boat floating on the lake. Then, he heard another 
bang. Just about then, the boat came back to shore, and a man walked by 
his window.

Von Karma doesn’t want you to cross-examine, as usual, but select to do 
it anyway. Three minutes just passed, and von Karma seems very pissed 
off. A small victory.


The only statement that is not perfectly clear is the last one, about a 
a man walking by his window. Press this statement. Phoenix asks if he 
could make out the man’s face. This adds a statement: the fog was thick, 
but he could see that it was the defendant, saying, “I can’t believe 
he’s dead”.

Press this new statement. The caretaker says he’s “dead certain” that it 
was Edgeworth and that he said it. The judge thinks it’s sound evidence. 
You have to act quickly, so raise an objection. You’ll bring up that it 
couldn’t have been Edgeworth firing the gun, but von Karma objects, 
saying that Edgeworth wiped the prints after firing.

Von Karma says that everything in the testimony is true. You should 
raise another objection. Phoenix claims that the caretaker’s word is all 
they have. Von Karma tells you to prove that the witness is lying. Of 
course you can’t.

The judge sees no reason to prolong the trial, and declares Miles 
Edgeworth GUILTY!!! NOOOOOOO!!!! Just as he is about to be carted off, 
somebody shows up to save the day...Larry Butz! Larry tells the judge 
that he was there on the night of the murder, and just remembered it. He 
heard the gunshot!

Von Karma objects, saying that the verdict has already been decided. 
Larry says that he was watching from the audience when he realized that 
something in the testimony was different from what he remembered. He 
demands to be allowed to testify. Larry couldn’t make things any worse, 
so Phoenix says they should hear him speak.

The judge says that the court’s duty is to prevent an inaccurate 
verdict, and that every witness should be heard. He withdraws his guilty 
verdict! Cool! Von Karma is ordered to call Larry to testify after a 
five minute recess.

Phoenix and Edgeworth discuss Larry’s testimony, and Maya asks why 
Edgeworth’s prints are on the gun. Edgeworth explains that he couldn’t 
think straight after Hammond fell into the lake. He saw the pistol on 
the floor of the boat and picked it up without thinking.

When court is back in session, Larry gives testimony.


That night, Larry was out in a boat on the lake. He was looking for 
something and he found it, so he quietly slipped the boat back in at the 
rental dock. Just as he was thinking about going home, he heard a bang. 
He looked out over the lake, but didn’t notice the boat. After that 
single gunshot he went home.


Larry testified that he heard only one gunshot, which is in direct 
contradiction to what was said by Lotta Hart yesterday. Present LOTTA’S 
DEPOSITION at the final statement about the gunshot. Was Larry evven 
listening? The judge asks Larry if he’s sure he only heard one gunshot. 
Larry says he’s not.

Larry might have missed the other gunshot because he was listening to a 
radio. Von Karma thinks it’s a waste of time, and the judge asks if you 
want him to continue the testimony. Select to continue.


It’s lonely, being alone on Christmas eve! That’s why Larry was 
listening to an all-requests radio show, real booming loud. But he’s 
sure he heard that gunshot! He remembers exactly what the DJ was saying 
when he heard it, too.

Von Karma says you can’t believe anything Larry says, and that what he 
heard was probably a drumbeat from the radio. Phoenix objects, saying 
that Larry said the DJ was talking. This means that no music was playing 
when he heard the gun.

You are now allowed to cross-examine.


The only thing that has not been clearly told is what the DJ was saying. 
Press the statement in which Larry says he could remember what the DJ 
was saying. Von Karma objects and says it doesn’t matter what he was 
saying. When asked, say we should care.

This adds a statement saying that he heard the gunshot just when the DJ 
said, “Hey! It’s almost Christmas!” That’s the contradiction! It’s in 
direct conflict with Lotta’s statement that she heard the gunshots after 
midnight. Present LOTTA’S DEPOSITION at the new statement.

Almost Christmas means it wasn’t Christmas, so Larry heard the gunshot 
on Christmas Eve! That contradicts both previous testimonies. The judge 
asks what you think of the claim that the gunshot was heard before 
midnight. Say that Larry’s right.

Von Karma asks for evidence. Remember that Lotta’s camera triggers on 
loud noises? If there was a gunshot, a photo would have been taken! This 
is the SECOND LAKE PHOTO, showing an empty lake, taken before midnight. 

However, Lotta is not mistaken: that night, there were two sets of 
gunshots, with a 25-minute pause between them! Von Karma says that the 
camera was set to respond to loud noises, and that there is no proof 
that it was a gunshot.

You now have to prove that the noise at 11:50 PM was a gunshot. The 
description of the PISTOL says that it was fired three times, but both 
the previous witnesses heard only two shots. The third shot was the one 
Larry heard before midnight!

Von Karma then asks why there were two sets of gunshots. Suddenly, 
Phoenix realizes: the murderer in this case had the same idea as the 
murderer in the Steel Samurai case! However, this is not clarified. 
Phoenix says that the testimony cleared up the entire case.

Von Karma tells you to consider the facts, and that nobody but Miles 
Edgeworth could have been the murderer. Phoenix then presents his 
alternate theory: Robert Hammond was killed by the first shot, 25 
minutes before the shot on the lake!

Von Karma then asks you to explain who is sitting on the boat. The only 
possilbe explanation is the murderer killed Hammond, assumed his 
identity, and met Edgeworth. The answer, then, is Edgeworth and the 
murderer. Robert Hammond called Edgeworth to the lake that night...

...and Edgeworth didn’t recognize the murderer in disguise, as he didn’t 
know Robert Hammond’s face very well. The judge then tells you to say 
the murderer’s name. It could not be either of the first two choices, so 
say that you don’t know.

Phoenix doesn’t know because he never told the court! The murderer is 
the caretaker of the boat shop! At 11:50, he shot Robert Hammond. The 
judge says that there weren’t any boats on the lake then, but Phoenix 
says he wouldn’t have to be on a boat.

You then have to say where the murder really took place. With the 
cursor, highlight the boat shop which is the building near Lotta’s camp 
with all the boats next to it. The caretaker then could have met the 
victim without anybody seeing.

Von Karma asks you to prove that the boat shop was the scene of the 
crime. Phoenix says to recall Larry’s testimony: he was on a boat, 
searching for something. He found it, and returned the boat. Just as he 
was heading home, he heard a gunshot.

The fact that he could hear it even though he was wearing headphones 
meant that the shot was very close by. If he had just returned the boat, 
that would be the boat shop. The judge asks Phoenix to tell the court 
exactly what happened on Gourd Lake, from the beginning.

That night, the caretaker called Robert Hammond to his shop around 
11:50. This was when Larry heard the first gunshot. After that, the 
caretaker put on Hammond’s coat and assumed his guise. He got in the 
boat with Edgewort, and went to the middle of the lake.

The judge asks who fired the pistol on the boat. It was, of course, the 
boat shop caretaker, as you’re trying to prove that Edgeworth didn’t 
fire any shots. The caretaker fired the pistol twice, missing Edgeworth 
on purpose. You now have to say why the murderer fired twice.

He would do this so a witness (i.e. Lotta Hart) would look toward the 
lake on the first shot and see him fire the second. After firing both 
shots, the murderer jumped from the boat. To anyone watching, it would 
look like the man still in the boat had shot the other.

The caretaker swam back to his shop, put Hammond’s coat on his body, and 
threw the corpse into the lake. That’s what happened that night. The 
judge tells the bailiff to bring out the boat shop caretaker, and while 
they are waiting, he will ask Edgeworth some questions.

Edgeworth takes the stand, and says that what Phoenix says was mostly 
correct. Several days ago, he received a letter, signed “Robert 
Hammond”. It asked him to come to the boat shop at midnight on Christmas 
Eve, and that he had something very important to discuss.

The bailiff comes back in and says that the witness has gone, and is not 
at the boat shop either. The judge commands the guard to find him, and 
extends the trial for one more day so that the witness can be found. 
Also, the identity of the caretaker has become very important.

In the lobby, Edgeworth says he has something very important to get off 
his chest. He says he’s been having a nightmare, a memory of a murder he 

DETECTIVE WORK 3                                         (4GOODBYESDW3)

“It’s a scream that has rung in my ears for 15 years.”-Miles Edgeworth


Maya and Phoenix are talking in the law offices. Some memory has been 
haunting Edgeworth, but they don’t believe that he could be a murderer. 
Suddenly Larry shows up, talking about his performance in court. Talk to 
him about today’s trial. Phoenix thanks him for helping out, but Larry 
says that Edgeworth’s not off the hook yet.

Phoenix says that there’s no way to know if Edgeworth is lying, but that 
he’ll “believe in you two toill the very end.” He means Edgeworth and 
Larry, his childhood friends. Talk about Edgeworth, and Maya asks why 
you trust him. Phoenix says he knew him back when he wanted to become a 
defence attorney, when they were classmates.

In grade school, Edgeworth and Larry saved Phoenix, and that’s why he he 
became a defence attorney. In the beginning of spring in 4th grade, 
Phoenix was put on a class trial. Talk about the class trial to learn 
that somebody’s lunch money was stolen during PE, and that Phoenix 
skipped PE that day because he had a cold. That’s why they thought he 
did it, and put him on trial.

The legal system in the class was not exactly a fair one, so the odds 
were swinging against Phoenix. Even the teacher thought he’d done it, 
but suddenly Edgeworth objected, saying that there was no evidence. If 
it wasn’t Phoenix who stole the money, he shouldn’t have to apologize, 
because there’s no proof.

Even though Edgeworth’s money was stolen, he thought Phoenix was 
innocent. Larry jumped in too, saying that if he said he didn’t do it, 
he didn’t do it. After that, the three of them were best friends. Talk 
about Edgeworth’s goals. Phoenix says that he talked to Edgeworth after 
the trial and learned that his father was a defence attorney.

A few months later, he suddenly transferred to another school because of 
his father’s death in the DL-6 incident. Phoenix heard Edgeworth’s name 
in the paper years later, under the headline “Dark Suspicions of a Demon 
Attorney”. The article said he’d do anything to get a guilty verdict. He 
would never respond to Phoenix when he attempted to contact him, either.

This was one of the things that convinced him to become a defence 
attorney: so he could meet Edgeworth, and learn who he had become. He 
believed in Edgeworth and Larry enough to defend both of them. 

The best lead on the case now is the old boat shop caretaker. Some 
useless evidence is cleaned out of the court record. Go to the Gourd 
Lake Entrance.


You’ll meet Detective Gumshoe, who promises to have the caretaker in 
custody before the trial tomorrow. He says that nobody can go into the 
woods because they’re off-limits to camping. Go to the boat rental shop 
via the public beach.


Here you’ll meet, of all people, Marvin Grossberg. You’ll discuss the 
trial, and then he leaves, telling you to come to his office if you need 
anything. Go to the caretaker’s shack.


Now that nobody is here, you can open the safe on top of the TV. Examine 
it, and Polly says the number for the safe: 1228. Maya opens the safe 
and finds nothing but a letter. It reads: “Get your revenge on Miles 
Edgeworth. This is your last chance! Now is your time to get revenge on 
the two men who ruined your life!”

The letter goes on to describe the murder plot. How to kill Hammond and 
frame Edgeworth, mentioning everything you found out in the trial today. 
The letter appears to be for the caretaker, but it’s hard to tell who 
wrote it. The LETTER FROM THE SAFE is added to the court record. Go to 
the Detention Center via the Boat Rental Shop, Public Beach and 


Maya will mention the class trial, which Edgeworth doesn’t seem to 
remember. Talk about why prosecute? to ask why Edgeworth became a 
prosecutor when he looked up to his father, the defence attorney. He 
says that he couldn’t defend criminals after his father was shot, and he 
hated Robert Hammond, the defender who got Yanni Yogi off innocent.

Talk about prosecutor von Karma. Edgeworth says that von Karma was his 
teacher, and that he learned everything about the courtroom from him. 
He’s a perfectionist, obsessed with doing everything perfectly 
everywhere. None of his cases were left unsolved, and every suspect was 
declared guilty, even though some were probably innocent.

Von Karma only does his job, to get every suspect declared guilty. If a 
weakness appeared in him or his case, he would make it go away. Present 
the LETTER FROM THE SAFE to ask Edgeworth about the mysterious “revenge” 
part. Maya asks who the caretaker is, and Edgeworth says he doesn’t 
remember the man at all.

If the caretaker was following the instructions in the letter, someone 
else must have written them. The words “last chance” mean the end of the 
statute of limitations on the DL-6 incident. Suddenly, Edgeworth 
realizes: could the old man be Yanni Yogi?

Yogi was the prime suspect in the DL-6 incident. Talk about Yanni Yogi 
to learn that he was a bailiff at the time. Edgeworth, his father, and 
Yanni Yogi happened to be in the elevator together. Then there was an 
earthquake, everything went dark, and they were stuck in there for 5 
hours. They became unsettled as the oxygen depleted.

Gregory and Yogi were yelling at each other, and then Edgeworth blacked 
out until he woke up in a hospital bed. In court, Hammond claimed that 
Yogi’s mental condition was altered, and that he wasn’t of sound mind 
when he shot Gregory.

But why would he want revenge? Edgeworth finally decides to tell you 
about the nightmare about the murder he committed. Talk about the 
nightmare. Edgeworth has had a recurring dream for 15 years about his 
father’s killing.

Yogi attacked Gregory in the elevator to stop him from breathing the 
air. Miles saw Yogi’s pistol fall at his feet, and picked it up in a 
daze. He threw the pistol, and it discharged, shooting Gregory. 
Edgeworth always wakes up at that point, when his father screams.

Maya says it was just a dream, but Edgeworth thinks it might be reality. 
The letter makes sense: Yanni Yogi was innocent, but Edgeworth committed 
the crime he was accused of. That would make him want revenge! Edgeworth 
was the true criminal of DL-6!

Maya says there’s someone else who knows about’s Marvin 
Grossberg. Go to the Grossberg Law Offices.


You’ll explain the situation to Grossberg. He is under the opinion that 
it is not a dream, and the Edgeworth is the real DL-6 murderer. The 
incident wrecked Yogi’s career, so he would seek revenge on Edgeworth.

Talk about Gregory Edgeworth. He was a great defence attorney, whose 
only peer was Mia Fey. Gregory was very critical of Manfred von Karma’s 
techniques. Forged testimonies and evidence meant nothing to von Karma, 
meaning that he had a perfect record. Gregory Edgeworth tried to beat 
him by putting his methods in question, but he lost.

Talk about the spirit medium. The police called on Misty Fey when 
Gregory Edgeworth was killed. From beyond the grave, Edgeworth said that 
Yanni Yogi had shot him. Yogi was found innocenth, and Misty 
disappeared. Grossberg then suggests that Gregory’s spirit could have 
lied to protect his son.

Present the LETTER FROM THE SAFE. It seems that Yogi was following the 
letter when he killed Hammond. Maya asks why he would kill Robert 
Hammond. Hammond was a skilled defender, but defended clients for his 
own sake, not for theirs. He never trusted his clients, just his own 
ability. He won innocent verdicts for nobody but himself.

Yogi was free, but ruined socially. Suddenly, Grossberg realizes that he 
saw the handwriting on the letter before! He asks if you have any idea 
who wrote this...the only plausible answer is Manfred von Karma. 
Grossberg is sure: it was von Karma who wrote this letter, and told 
Yanni Yogi to kill Hammond!

Talk about Prosecutor von Karma. He would have to know that it was Miles 
Edgeworth who killed his own father, and will say that in court. Maya 
asks how von Karma new, but Grossberg doesn’t know. He may be seeking to 
satisfy a grudge against Gregory Edgeworth.

Fifteen years ago, von Karma met Gregory Edgeworth in court. Although he 
won, he didn’t make it through the trial without a blemish on his 
perfect record. Talk about Gregry vs. Manfred. Von Karma got his guilty 
verdict, but Gregory accused him of using faulty evidence. It was the 
only penalty on a forty-year winning streak.

It was quite a shock to von Karma, as evidenced by the fact that he took 
a long vacation after the case: the first and last vacation he ever took 
in his career. Von Karma is sure to bring up DL-6, and Grossberg reminds 
Phoenix that even accidental murder is murder. Phoenix knows he’s not 
guilty, though.

Grossberg suggests you check the files at the police station again. Go 
to the records room via the criminal affairs department.


Examine the open drawer in the row of drawers. It’s a drawer full of 
evidence from unsolved cases, and the file for DL-6 is empty! Suddenly, 
von Karma shows up! Eek! Talk to him about Edgeworth. Edgeworth was von 
Karma’s student. Apparently, he could never shed his air of amateurism. 
Phoenix accuses him of having a grudge on Gregory Edgeworth, and asks 
why he took his son under his wing. Von Karma says it’s none of you 
business. Asshole.

Talk about tomorrow’s trial. You were right--von Karma is going to bring 
up DL-6. Present the LETTER FROM THE SAFE, as you have been with 
everybody else. Yogi was supposed to burn it after he read it. Von Karma 
then pulls out a stun gun, but Maya jumps him first. He zaps both of you 
anyway. Great: this makes three cases in a row where somebody has either 
assaulted you or tried to kill you.

Von Karma got the letter, of course, and Maya accuses herself of being 
useless and unable to stop him. She’s holding something, though: a small 
bullet...from the heart of Gregory Edgeworth! The DL-6 BULLET is added 
to the court record. Time for the final trial!

TRIAL 3                                                   (4GOODBYEST3)

“You and your father are my curse! I’ll bury you! I’ll bury you with my 
bare hands!”-Manfred von Karma

Your first objective is to prove that the caretaker remembers his past. 
Von Karma’s opening statement says that you must cross-examine him to 
prove that he is the murderer. The caretaker will then testify as to why 
he left court.


He’s really sorry about leaving yesterday, but he wasn’t running away. 
He went to buy some food for Polly, figuring he had nothing to do with 
the incident anyhow. He’d need a motive, and he doesn’t have one. So, 
his testimony stands as it is.


He does have a motive. He has a grudge against both the victim and 
defendant. How is that not a motive? Press the final statement (“one of 
those motive things”) to accuse him of taking revenge. Von Karma says 
again that he has no memory beyond the past several years.

Another thing: he definitely has something to do with the case. Press 
the second-to-last statement about having nothing to do with it. Phoenix 
asks about his memory, and says that if his memory is so bad, how could 
he know he had nothing to do with it? Unless he’s lying about his memory 

Von Karma, as usual, wants you to prove that he’s lying about his 
memory. You can’t. The judge says you’ve been calling the witness’s 
memory into question, but what does that have to do with the case? 
Phoenix explains: the witness says he has no motive. That’s a lie!

The judge and von Karma then ask who the witness is. We know this 
already; select Yanni Yogi. If the man is Yanni Yogi, he does have a 
motive! Von Karma asks you how you intend to prove that the caretaker is 
Yanni Yogi. Phoenix suggests that they take the man’s fingerprints. You 
can’t! He has no fingerprints, as he burned them off working at a 
chemical plant years ago.

You know that he’s Yanni Yogi, you just can’t prove it. There is nobody 
who can testify to this, and it looks as if it’s the end of the 
road...until von Karma jokingly suggests that you cross-examine the 
parrot. Phoenix takes him up on this proposal.

When asked, say you’re doing it. Polly then comes to testify.


Hello! Hello! *squawk* ...


That testimony is not exactly contradicted by any evidence, so press 
this edifying statement. Phoenix suggests Maya talk to the bird, and 
three options come up. First, select the phrase that makes Polly mention 
DL-6: “Have we forgotten something?” It doesn’t work! Von Karma must 
have retrained the parrot!

Press the first statement again to bring up the list of options. This 
time, the correct statement is in the DL-6 CASE FILE. Yanni Yogi’s 
fiancee was named Polly Jenkins. Polly is the parrot’s name? Select 
“What’s your name?” When asked if this relates to her owner’s identity, 
select of course.

You now need proof tying the names Polly and Yogi. Present the 
aforementioned DL-6 CASE FILE! The proof is on the “Suspect Data” page. 
His fiancee, Polly, links Yanni Yogi’s name to the parrot, and thus 
proves that the caretaker is Yanni Yogi!

It’s not enough: you need corroborating evidence. Press the first 
statement one more time, and select the third speech option: “What’s the 
safe number?” When asked, say it actually does have something to do with 
the caretaker. You have to link this number to the caretaker’s identity. 
Check the DL-6 CASE FILE again: the incident occurred on December 

Present the DL-6 CASE FILE again: the evidence is on the “Case Summary” 
page. The date of the DL-6 incident is the number for his safe! The date 
must have been very important to him. The judge notes the two 
coincidences at the same time, and says they seem to be a pattern!

The caretaker is summoned again and is forced to say his name. Von Karma 
tries to stop him, but he says it anyway: Yanni Yogi. He confesses to 
the murder of Robert Hammond and framing of Miles Edgeworth. Fifteen 
years ago, Hammond got him off the hook by saying that he was mentally 
unsound. He was innocent, but he lost everything else, and was forced to 
go into hiding.

Fifteen years later, he received a pistol and a note, containing 
detailed plans for revenge. However, Yogi won’t talk about why he’d want 
revenge on Edgeworth. Edgeworth then takes the stand, and is declared 

The moment he learns of his innocence, Edgeworth celebrates as any free 
man would: by confessing to the DL-6 incident. Raise an objection, but 
von Karma forces you to hear Edgeworth speak. This is it: the final 
trial sequence of this episode is my favorite part of the game. Let’s 
kick von Karma’s ass and save Edgeworth from the incident that’s been 
ruining his life for 15 years.

Edgeworth tells the court about his recurring dream, and confesses to 
the shooting of his father. Von Karma says that they must try him right 
now for the incident, after a five minute recess. In the lobby, Phoenix 
is reading the court record: he’s going to prove that Edgeworth is 
innocent in the DL-6 incident!


That day, Edgeworth went to the courtroom to observe one of his father’s 
trials. As they went to leave, an earthquake struck, trapping them in 
the elevator. His father and Mr. Yogi lost their composure and began to 
argue. Just then, something heavy fell at his feet. He picked it up, and 
threw it at Mr. Yogi. He wanted them to stop fighting. A moment later, 
there was a single gunshot, then a scream. It was a terrible scream, and 
he remembers it to this day.


The contradiction comes from the statement in which Edgeworth says that 
there was a single gunshot. Check the ever-useful DL-6 CASE FILE and 
read the “Victim Data” page. The murder weapon was fired twice! Where 
and when was the second shot?

Present the DL-6 CASE FILE at the statement about the single gunshot. 
The evidence is on the “Victim Data” page. The first shot was the 
accidental firing when the gun was thrown. Who fired the second? The 
judge suggests that there might have been another shooter.

Von Karma says that you do not know when the second bullet was fired: it 
could have been the day before the incident. You have to prove that the 
other shot had something to do with the case. Say yes, and present the 
DL-6 INCIDENT PHOTO. The photograph proves that the gun was fired twice 
at the scene, but you have to show the judge why.

Look at the elevator doors. There’s a hole in one of the windows--a 
bullet hole! Select this hole and click present. Gregory Edgeworth was 
shot with a pistol, but there is also a bullet hole in the door. You 
know the murder weapon was fired twice, but Edgeworth only remembers one 
shot. Someone other than Edgeworth must have fired it!

That someone else is the real murderer! Von Karma says that the DL-6 
CASE FILE shows that no clues were found on the scene. If the pistol had 
been fired twice, the other bullet would have been on the scene! He then 
claims that the second bullet does not exist.

The judge asks one thing to Miles Edgeworth before the verdict. Has he 
been paying attention to the trial? Edgeworth says yes, and that he has 
no objections. When asked, object like hell! Suddenly, you get a short 
vision of Mia telling you that the second bullet must exist, and that 
someone took it!

Phoenix brings up that the murderer might have taken it. Von Karma tells 
you to name the murderer, but Phoenix doesn’t know. The judge then asks 
if the murderer needed to search for the bullet. It won’t seem to help 
your case, but say the murderer didn’t need it.

Mia appears again, telling you to think why the bullet had to be taken. 
Phoenix says the murderer didn’t intend to take the bullet from the 
scene, but he HAD to because...maybe the bullet hit the murderer! If it 
hit him, he would have to take it with him.

Two bullets were fired, but one hit the murderer, forcing him to take it 
with him. However, there’s a problem: the survivors were completely 
unharmed! That would mean that the murderer came from outside!

The two men fought inside the elevator. Trying to stop them, the boy 
picks up the pistol and throws it. The pistol fires, and the bullet goes 
through the door and hits the murderer outside. The boy loses 
consciousness. The murderer opens the elevator door and sees the men 
inside, and shoots one.

Of course, nobody involved in the incident was wounded. Suddenly, Maya 
thinks of something crazy, and remembers what Grossberg said: Gregory 
Edgeworth dealt a blow to von Karma’s perfect trial record, and it was 
such a shock that he took a long vacation afterwards. Von Karma might 
have taken that vacation not because he was shocked, but because he was 
injured! That would mean von Karma WAS THE MURDERER!

The judge asks the name of your suspect, so decide to come out and say 
it. It was von Karma, the von Karma, in the prosecutor’s chair. He took 
a vacation not to recover from shock, but from a bullet wound. Of 
course, he asks you to prove it. Edgeworth says that von Karma wouldn’t 
get surgery so as not to leave clues. He’s that perfect.

As Maya says, he couldn’t have pulled the bullet out himself. That would 
mean it’s still in him somewhere! Select to show evidence, and present 
the thing in the court record that would be able to find a bullet in 
somebody: the METAL DETECTOR you used to look for Gourdy.

Von Karma refuses to let you use the METAL DETECTOR on him. This 
probably means that the bullet is still inside him. The judge permits 
use of the METAL DETECTOR, which reveals a bullet inside his right 
shoulder! Von Karma claims that he was shot in the shoulder long before 
the incident, and claims that there is no relation.

You have to prove that the bullet is related to DL-6, which von Karma 
thinks you can’t do without any DL-6 evidence. You do have proof, 
though! Present the DL-6 BULLET! This is the bullet used in the DL-6 
incident, taken from the heard of Gregory Edgeworth. The bullet is 
preserved with the ballistic markings.

They have two bullets: the one from Gregory’s heart, and the one in von 
Karma’s right shoulder. They could analyze both bullets to determine 
whether they came from the same gun...the murder weapon! Von Karma knows 
you’ve beaten him, and screams the very same scream which has haunted 
Edgeworth since the incident. It was him!

Fifteen years earlier, Gregory Edgeworth put a blemish on von Karma’s 
record. He was penalized, and was shocked. Suddenly, the lights went 
out, and he ended up in the court’s records room. He went out into the 
hall and found the elevator. He pressed the button, but nothing 
happened. Then the gun fired and shot him in the shoulder.

The lights came on then, and the elevator door opened. He saw three 
people lying inside and a pistol at his feet. Gregory Edgeworth died 
without knowing who had shot him, and blamed Mr. Yogi through a medium. 
Von Karma had fooled the dead...the perfect crime.

Miles Edgeworth is declared NOT GUILTY!!! Again! A spectacular end to 
von Karma’s winning streak: not only did you get two not guilty verdicts 
in the same trial, but you convicted him of murder. Enjoy the ending 
cutscene. Phoenix awakes in the law offices, and finds a letter from 
Maya saying that she’s going to finish her training.

He goes to the train station, and talks to Maya, who thinks she was 
completely useless. You have to present evidence to cheer her up. 
Remember how she stole the DL-6 BULLET from von Karma? And how you 
couldn’t have won the trial without that? Present the DL-6 BULLET and 
enjoy the rest of the cutscene.

EPISODE 5: RISE FROM THE ASHES                                 (5ASHES)

VICTIM: Bruce Goodman
WITNESS LIST: Angel Starr, Damon Gant, Mike Meekins, Jake Marshall, Ema 
Skye, Lana Skye

This episode is awesome. While the last part may have been the coolest 
sequence, this is the coolest general episode. It’s different in a lot 
of ways: no huge personal stake, Ema Skye follows you around instead of 
Maya, and it’s way longer than any of the others, with more evidence. 
The cardinal difference is that several features have been added making 
use of the DS touch screen.

The episode begins mysteriously enough: the same man is killed twice, in 
two different places, by two different people. Chief Prosecutor Lana 
Skye (you heard her say a few sentences during episode 2) has confessed 
to the murder, and her sister Ema has shown up in Phoenix’s office 
asking him for help. As he investigates, Phoenix will uncover deep-
seated police corruption, gamble with the careers of almost everyone 
involved (including him), cross swords with prosecutors, several 
eccentric cops, and the Chief of Police, and end up investigating the 
SL-9 incident, the unsolved final murder in a string of serial killings. 
All in all, a fitting end to such an awesome game.

DETECTIVE WORK 1                                            (5ASHESDW1)

“I know she didn’t do it! It’s a scientific fact!”-Ema Skye

The stabbings are detailed (somewhat) in the opening cutscene, after 
which Phoenix tells the story of the girl who showed up in his office 
and gave him his first trial in two months.


Here, you’ll meet Ema Skye for the first time. She mistakes you for Mia, 
but then learns who you are and decides you’re better than nobody. She 
seems desperate to get you to help her sister, and Phoenix agrees to 
listen to her after realizing that her situation is somewhat similar to 

Ema says she’s a scientific investigator. Talk about Ema. Phoenix 
notices that she’s kind of jumpy, or maybe just young: she’ll be sixteen 
this year. However, she’s set to be assigned to forensics in three 
years, as her work is well known. Her current position, though, is 

Talk about the case. Apparently Ema’s sister stabbed somebody with a 
knife and a witness saw her do it. Ema begs Phoenix to talk to her 
sister, who seems to know Mia in some way. Talk about sci. investigator. 
Ema believes investigations should be done scientifically, and is sure 
that her sister will be cleared if the case is handled that way.

She says she’s developing a new method of case investigation. Talk about 
relation to Mia. Ema’s sister went to the same school as Mia, and told 
her to find Mia if she needed a defence attorney. Unfortunately, Ema 
appears to hate her sister “like she is now”. But she’s her only family, 
as their parents died in a car accident.

Go to the detention center to talk to your new client.


Ema gets quiet as soon as you arrive, and you hear an authoritarian 
voice talking to the guard. It’s Lana Skye, Ema’s sister and the 
defendant. Lana specifically told Ema not to come, but she had to 
because Lana needs a defender. Lana knows about you from Mia, as well. 
She is the Chief Prosecutor for the district, which makes another odd 
similarity between the Skyes and Feys: two sisters, one lawyer.

Talk to Lana about the case. Lana says that the suspect, her, has 
already confessed to the crime, but Phoenix asks what happened anyway. 
Lana explains: the crime took place on February 21 at 5:15 PM. She knows 
this from the witness who saw her. The murder happened in the 
underground parking lot at the prosecutor’s office.

The body was found in the trunk of her subordiante’s car, and Lana was 
arrested on the spot. Talk about the victim to learn he was a detective 
with the police department. He was killed due to loss of blood from a 
stab wound in his stomach. If the victim was a detective, it will be a 
matter of pride in the police department to declare her guilty, and they 
will go to any lengths to do it.

Talk about Lana. She’s the Chief Prosecutor, responsible for overseeing 
every trial handled by district prosecutors. She manages every aspect of 
the trials and makes sure her employees have what they need to do their 
jobs. Lana thinks you’d recognize the district chief prosecutor, and 
shows her surprise with her hand.

Ema notices that her hand is bandaged, and asks what happened. Lana says 
she cut herself when he stabbed him; she’s not good at being a criminal. 
Talk about relation to Mia. Lana was in school with her, and she notes 
that Phoenix has little in common with Mia. In law school, Mia was 
auditing Lana’s class. She was different from the other students: she 
was strong, and would do anything to become an attorney.

That was why she gravitated toward Lana. Lana then says that she’s 
admitted her guilt, and that there’s no way you can take the case. Ema 
says she wasn’t always this way, but now she only thinks of herself. Ema 
knows she didn’t do it, so Lana decides to request your services. 
Phoenix doesn’t think the confession fits either, and decides that he’s 
going to find out what’s going on.


Back at the office, Ema assures you that Lana isn’t always that way. She 
used to be gentle and smiling, and eveybody loved her. Ema doesn’t know 
for certain what changed. Phoenix decides to go investigate the scene of 
the crime. Go to the underground parking lot.


This is where it happened. Ema yells hello to everybody before Phoenix 
can remind her that they’re not supposed to be here. Jake Marshall then 
shows up, and tells you that this is “his gang’s gold strike” and that 
only they can look for evidence here. He also says that you’ll live to 
regret it if you try to take what’s his.

Ema explains that he’s a detective, then you can look around. First, 
check out the glass-walled security office. You could probably see the 
whole parking lot from there. Next, examine the wallet on the floor, 
near the door and computer terminal. Ema tells you that anything at a 
crime scene is evidence, and proceeds to give you a tutorial.

She explains how to closely examine evidence. Open the court record and 
click the check button on the evidence you want to examine. You can use 
the dials on the bottom and right to rotate the object horizontally and 
vertically, and the lever on the left will enlarge and shrink the 
object. You use the regular crosshair system to examine.

Zoom in about halfway and rotate so you can see the gold button and 
strap holding the wallet closed. Examine it to open it, and inside 
you’ll find an ID card. GOODMAN’S ID is added to the court record. Next, 
move right. On the floor, near the oil drum, is a cell phone. Examine 
it. Jake Marshall shows up again and tells you to leave.

Ema asks who owns the car that the body was found in. Marshall tells you 
to look in room 1202 on the twelth floor. Just after he leaves, Angel 
Starr appears. For some reason she’s selling lunches at a crime scene, 
and says it’s off-limits to anybody without clearance, which, as Ema 
points out, should include her.

Angel says that even if her days as the “cough-up queen” are over, she’s 
very connected to the case. She is the witness who saw Lana stab the 
victim. Talk to her about the case. Angel says that yesterday was a day 
of destiny and that she knew something would happen. She also says that 
Phoenix should know of the “foul misdeeds” of the prosecutors who work 
in this office.

Yesterday they gave out the award for “king of prosecutors” at some sort 
of convention. Ema asks if Angel has some kind of grudge against 
prosecutors, but she refuses to say. The body was found in the trunk of 
the car belonging to the “king of prosecutors”.

Talk about what you witnessed. Angel says that it was a spectacle seeing 
Lana wield the knife in such anger and bring the victim to a sad end. 
She saw the very moment of the death, and knows Lana Skye as well: it’s 
quite a feat to become Chief Prosecutor. Talk about Angel. She sells 
imported lunches here every day, and they’re a big hit here. Her 
boyfriend works in the securities office with the glass walls.

Talk about the prosecutor’s office. Phoenix asks Angel if she had a bad 
experience with a prosecutor. She dodges the question, and Phoenix 
wonders if she was involved in legal trouble. Perhaps she’s not just a 
lunch lady after all. Go to the High Prosecutor’s office.


When you enter, Ema notices a trophy on the couch. It’s a shield with a 
gold letter K on it. Suddenly, Miles Edgeworth appears--it seems this is 
his office. Ema is surprised to see him; apparently she’s his “biggest 
fan”. She met him once through Lana. Ema mentions that they are 
investigating murder, and Edgeworth says that the car in which they 
found the body was his.

Talk about the case, and Edgeworth accuses you of thinking he did it, 
even after all the trouble you went through to get him acquitted. 
Phoenix doesn’t think he did it, of course. Edgeworth asks Ema if she is 
Lana’s little sister, and vaguely remembers the last time he met her. 
The case is a surprise to him too, both that his car was the scene of 
the crime and that he must prove his superior’s guilt.

Lana can’t prosecute herself, so Edgeworth will prosecute at the trial 
tomorrow. Talk about Edgeworth. He says it’s a miracle he’s still here 
at all. Phoenix asks why, and Edgeworth says that he’s been the subject 
of some unpleasant rumors. Phoenix remembers: forged evidence, false 
testimony, illegal searches (actually, the last one is somewhat like 
what you do).

Edgeworth’s innocence of murder was established, but some say he’s 
responsible for the current murder. Talk about Lana Skye: she and 
Edgeworth first worked together two years ago, before Phoenix was even a 
lawyer. Since then he feels that she was looking out for him, but 
supposed he was wrong. Ema says that she must have cared some, and 
Edgeworth says that if that’s true, why did she stab someone in his car? 

Edgeworth goes on to say that she stabbed the victim with his knife, 
from the toolbox in his trunk. EDGEWORTH’S KNIFE is added to the court 
record. Phoenix asks if Edgeworth is sure he didn’t do it. It’s only a 
joke, but neither Edgeworth nor Ema seem to think it’s funny.

Break off the conversation and examine the trophy on the couch on the 
left side. It’s the award for “King of Prosecutors” that is presented 
every year to the best prosecutor at the office. The PROSECUTOR TROPHY 
is added to the court record.

It’s now time to check your new evidence more closely, so open the court 
record and check EDGEWORTH’S KNIFE. Examine the blood on the blade. It’s 
either the victim’s or Edgeworth cut himself peeling fruit. Present the 
PROSECUTOR TROPHY and Edgeworth complains about having to miss a day of 
work so he could go receive the trophy at the police department.

Ema asks why the shield is broken, but Edgeworth doesn’t really care. 
Yesterday was a busy day at the prosecutor’s office, he says. Talk about 
the day of the crime and Edgeworth explains that it was the annual 
“cleaning day”. The prosecutors sort and file the evidence they get from 
the police department-- like wiping their hands of old cases.

There’s also a ceremony where awards are presented for the best 
prosecutors. He returned to the office from the police department that 
afternoon at 5:12. He knows this because he has evidence: a parking 
stub. The PARKING STUB is added to the court record. The murder happened 
right after he got back.

Suddenly, a mysterious man in a patrolman’s uniform shows up and asks 
for Edgeworth. He is there at the chief’s request, and has a report. 
Edgeworth asks if it’s about Lana Skye, and says he gave orders for 
nothing to be given to him that didn’t relate to that case. The man says 
he’s just following orders to bring the report.

He then gives his name as Officer Mike Meekins, and Edgeworth tells him 
to take the report and leave. He then asks Phoenix and Ema to leave, and 
before you go, says that the victim was a detective from the same 
department as Meekins. He tells you to ask more at the Police 

Go to the Police Department entrance via the underground parking lot.


Upon arrival, Phoenix notices the large dancing mascot, the Blue Badger. 
This guy seems like an incredibly unimportant detail to keep coming up 
again and again, but he will be important eventually. Ema says that the 
Blue Badger seems familiar, and then Phoenix notices Detective Gumshoe 
doing the same dance as the Badger.

Talk to Gumshoe about the case. He tells you not to agree to defend the 
suspect because she’s confessed and there’s a lot of evidence against 
her. Ema is mad, saying that Lana could be lying and that the evidence 
could be faked. Gumshoe asks why she’s mad, so Phoenix explains that 
she’s a relative of Lana’s.

Gumshoe then says that faked evidence is a touchy subject these days. 
Talk about the investigation. Gumshoe doesn’t know what’s happening 
since he got kicked out of Criminal Affairs since the murder. Because of 
Lana’s high profile, only the highest ranks are getting in, and that 
means none of the rank-and-file. That’s a little odd.

Since Gumshoe has nothing better to do, he decided to spend the day 
learning the badger dance. The Chief of Police himself is directing the 
investigation, and Officer Marshall is running the parking lot. It’s 
also odd to have a patrolman in charge of a crime scene.

You’re here to ask about the victim, so present GOODMAN’S ID. Gumshoe 
recognizes the detective’s ID and thinks the name Bruce Goodman sounds 
familiar. Suddenly he remembers--Bruce Goodman is the victim! Talk about 
Bruce Goodman; he was a detective like Gumshoe. Ema thinks it’s strange 
that the ID was lying on the ground at the parking lot.

Goodman should have been at the police department yesterday, doing 
evidence transferal for a case of his two years ago. Apparently, Lana 
called him out to the parking lot before she killed him. You should also 
ask about Edgeworth, so present EDGEWORTH’S KNIFE.

Gumshoe wonders what would drive Lana to do such a thing. He thinks it 
must be someone with a grudge against Edgeworth, as the car and knife 
seem to be organized. You need to know more about Edgeworth so present 
the PROSECUTOR TROPHY. Phoenix asks Gumshoe if he was at the ceremony, 
and he says yes, as he got an award himself.

Ema asks why the award is a broken shield. Gumshoe says there’s a 
reason, but he’s forgotten. He says that Edgeworth has enemies in the 
prosecutor’s office. Talk about rumors at law. Edgeworth is in a tough 
spot again. It started with the murder of Robert Hammond in the last 
episode. There have always been rumors about Edgeworth, and since he was 
accused of murder, nobody’s keepng quiet.

People have always been suspicious of Edgeworth because of his lofty 
connections, but the latest case has started a new rumor: that he’s 
gunning for the chief prosecutor spot! Gumshoe believes, though, that 
Edgeworth is doing everyone a favor--nobody wants to prosecute the chief 

Examine the Blue Badger. Gumshoe says he created it from designs by the 
chief detective. It’s battery powered and you can’t turn it off. The 
BLUE BADGER PANEL is added to the court record. Phoenix asks why Gumshoe 
isn’t handling the case, and then asks about Jake Marshall. He’s just a 
regular officer from West L.A. Gumshoe then gives you a LETTER OF 
INTRODUCTION so you can examine the crime scene.

Go to the Underground Parking Lot.


Jake Marshall is still here, and Phoenix notices that he is a very 
strange guy to put in charge of a crime scene. Present the LETTER OF 
INTRODUCTION so he’ll talk to you. You’ll then throw the letter away. 
Talk to Marshall about the victim. Goodman was killed here at 5:15 by 
one stab wound. He then gives you GOODMAN’S AUTOPSY REPORT which is 
added to the court record.

Marshall says that Goodman and Lana had nothing in common at all, 
although they worked together on a case a while ago. There’s no motive! 
Goodman wasn’t a great detective, so he didn’t talk to the prosecutors 
that much. However, Lana called him here yesterday. Talk about Marshall. 
He says he was a detective until two years ago.

Ema asks how he, as a patrolman, can be running a crime scene, and 
Marshall explains that they’re short on men and he’s just keeping watch. 
If they’re so understaffed, though, why would Gumshoe have nothing 
important to do? You can now investigate the crime scene, so move to the 

Examine the cell phone on the ground next to the oil drum, the one that 
Marshall wouldn’t let you look at the last time you were here. Ema 
thinks it belongs to the victim, so select to check it out. You’ll 
automatically go to the examination screen. First off, you need to open 
the phone. Rotate to the other side, zoom in all the way, and examine 
the blue button on the side to open it.

The display is still on the redial button, so you can press the blue 
button to call the last number dialed. Examine the blue button on the 
inside of the phone to use the redial. Marshall shows up suddenly and 
tells you that the phone belongs to Lana, and that she dropped it after 
being taken into custody.

The last call was made just before the murder, but she only talked for a 
few seconds. The redial function, however, called Phoenix’s phone--
someone must have called a wrong number right when they picked up the 
other phone. The CELL PHONE is added to the court record.

Go back left and talk to Marshall about Lana Skye. Ema says there’s no 
connection between Bruce Goodman and her sister. That’s true, but 
there’s a lot of evidence against her, and Miles Edgeworth is 
prosecuting, so she doesn’t have much chance. Ema blurts out a hint that 
Marshall and Lana had some kind of connection.

Talk about office atmosphere. Rumors have been flying around about 
Edgeworth for years now, and he was unbeatable until he met Phoenix. 
Marshall asys that if you follow the rumors to their source, you find 
someone “untouchable”: Lana Skye. He says that Edgeworth might have been 
making secret deals to win cases, and that he has a “big ‘ol secret”. 
Gumshoe was taken from the case for being close to Edgeworth.

Head right again and examine the trunk of the car. Phoenix finds some 
sort of note, bearing a cryptic message: “6-7S 12/2”. Above that, the 
name Goodman is printed; it must have fallen from his pocket. Of course 
nobody knows what it means. The VICTIM’S NOTE is added to the court 

You’re doing alright now: you have some clues, but Lana’s still 
confessing. Phoenix brings up Ema’s ringtone: it’s the theme from the 
Steel Samurai. The phone that rang wasn’t his, it was hers. At 5:18, 
right after the murder, Lana called her sister, but hung up right away. 
The CELL PHONE is updated in the court record.

Save your data and prepare for the trial.

TRIAL 1                                                      (5ASHEST1)

“Somehow, I always knew a day like this would come.”-Angel Starr

Phoenix tells Lana that the investigation left a lot of gray areas (“one 
big gray area”). Lana then says she’s ready to accept her fate, then 
offers Phoenix advice. Defence attorneys should never believe their 
clients. Phoenix somewhat unsubtly reminds Lana that she’s not a defence 
attorney and shouldn’t be giving him advice.

As the trial begins, Edgeworth tells you to leave personal feelings out 
of the proceedings. In his opening statement, he says that Lana commited 
an unpardonable crime in the office parking lot. There was a witness as 
well: Angel Starr is called to the stand. After first giving everybody 
lunch, she says that she’s a professional witness. She was a homicide 
detective until two years ago.

Angel then explains the crime: the parking lot at the prosecutor’s 
office is divided into two blocks. A Block is for the office’s 
personnel, and B Block is for visitors. The two are separated by a 
divider. The crime took a place in A Block, in a car’s trunk. The killer 
stabbed the victim with a knife and tried to drive the body out. She 
would have, but Angel caught her and made an arrest.

The PARKING LOT FLOOR PLANS are added to the court record, after which 
the testimony begins.


Somehow, she always knew a day like this would come. She was on her way 
to deliver a lunchbox to her boyfriend, when she sensed something--
perhaps her finely-honed detective instincts working. Then, through a 
wire fence, she saw the chief prosecutor standing next to a garish car. 
The chief prosecutor was holding a knife in her right hand. Then, she 
thrust the pointy tip of the knife into Detective Goodman’s chest!


Start by pressing the first statement. Phoenix asks how she knew, and 
Angel says that prosecutors are prone to erasing evidence that doesn’t 
support their cases. Killing detectives who know too much is just an 
extension. Ema asks if Angel has something against prosecutors. Angel 
says that she had found her dream job as a detective, but was laid off 
by the prosecutors.

Press the second statement to ask who her boyfriend is. He’s the 
security guard, who works in the guard room at A Block. It’s up on the 
second level so you can see everything. Phoenix asks if she brought her 
lunches by car, and Angel says she parked in B Block, and witnessed the 
crime from there.

Continue in numerical order by pressing the third statement. Phoenix 
asks if Angel had a premonition of the murder. She says it was like “the 
feeling you get when you open a pumpkin full of seeds”. Phoenix then 
says that Goodman was also a detective, but Angel says he was like a 
“young cheese”--not much experience.

Finally, press the fourth statement for some results. The garish car is 
Edgeworth’s, as is the knife with which the victim was stabbed. Angel 
saw the crime from thirty feet away and was sure it was Lana. Phoenix 
tries to complain that Angel stated that prosecutors are worms, and is a 
biased witness. Angel then reveals a photograph she took from a camera 
rigged on one of her lunchboxes.

Unfortunately, it definitely shows Lana. The CRIME PHOTO is added to the 
court record. Now that you have some firepower, go to the fifth 
statement (“knife in her right hand”) and look at the photograph. This 
is of the very moment of the crime, but Lana is not holding a knife! 
Present the CRIME PHOTO.

Edgeworth explains that the photo was not taken the moment before the 
stabbing, but the moment after. Angel says you can tell this by the 
splattering of blood on Lana’s clothes. Raise an objection when 
prompted, and Phoenix says that it contradicts the testimony that the 
photo was taken the moment of the crime.

Angel apologizes, saying she was slightly unclear. She then says that 
Lana was cold and calculating in the killing, that she murdered him 
without remorse--so it must have been premeditated! Phoenix asks how she 
knows, and Edgeworth points out that Lana is wearing gloves so as to 
intentionally not leave fingerprints.

If it was not premeditated, she would not be wearing the gloves! Angel 
adds a statement to her testimony, saying that the murder was planned 
and that the gloves prove it. Aha! Now you’ve got her! Think about the 
murder weapon--it was a knife that Lana happened to find in the trunk of 
the car. If it was premeditated murder, she would have brought her own 
knife! Present EDGEWORTH’S KNIFE at the new statement.

Even after your brilliant objection, Edgeworth has something to say. He 
doesn’t care whether or not it was premeditated, as long as she still 
murdered a man with a knife. Angel then comes up with a new testimony, 
telling how she deduced that Lana planned the murder.


Lana Skye intended to murder Detective Goodman! That’s why she called 
the victim all the way to the prosecutor’s office. Angel is sure the 
chief prosecutor had a grudge against the victim. Nothing else could 
drive that human machine to plunge the knife in again and again...


This one will be somewhat easier than the last one. The obvious 
contradiction involves the final statement, in which Angel says that 
Lana stabbed Goodman “again and again”. Check GOODMAN’S AUTOPSY REPORT; 
he died from one stab wound. Present the report at the final statement.

Edgeworth steals your objection and explains it himself, but at least 
you found a hole in the testimony. Angel says she mistook something for 
blood. When Lana lifted the knife after the stabbing, Angel thought she 
saw blood splattered on her from the victim, and thought she must have 
stabbed him at least twice.

However, it was actually Lana’s red muffler that she mistook for blood, 
and a statement is added saying this. Another easy kill here. Look at 
the CRIME PHOTO--Lana is obviously not wearing a muffler. Present the 
CRIME PHOTO at the new statement. That asshole Edgeworth steals you 
objection again.

Angel is sure there was a scarf or something red, but the judge asks her 
to testify again on arresting Lana.


After the murder, the suspect attempted to run behind a partition off to 
her side. Angel quickly caught her, explained her rights to her, and 
arrested her on the spot. When she arrested Lana, Lana mentioned the 
muffler! That’s what had Angel confused in her earlier testimony. The 
chief prosecutor made to escape, but against Angel Starr, resistance is 


First, you’ll want more information about the actual capture. Press the 
second statement (“arrested her on the spot”) to ask if she was close to 
the suspect. Angel says she was thirty feet away from her the whole 
time. Select to press her for more details. Phoenix asks to see the 

Angel was a visitor, so she parked in B Block, and witnessed the murder 
from there, about thirty feet from the car. There was a fence between 
the two lots, but she went over it. However, this would have taken some 
time. Why did Lana not escape?

The other weird part of the testimony is the part where Lana mentions 
the muffler. Why would she do that? Press this statement to ask exactly 
what she said; Angel doesn’t remember. All she heard was the word 
“muffler” meaning that it must have been someone else Lana was talking 
to. She was on her phone!

Choose to ask further. Phoenix shows the CELL PHONE from the crime 
scene, and Angel says that she “ultimately” used this one. The chief 
prosecutor first attempted to use the emergency phone hanging on the 
wall, but it was out of order, so she used her cell. LANA’S CELL PHONE 
is updated in the court record.

A new statement is added to the court record saying this. Press it and 
Phoenix asks Angel to explain. The chief prosecutor stabbed the victim 
and ran behind the partition. She then picked up the emergency phone, 
but it was out of order, so she pulled her own cell phone from her 
pocket. While she was doing this, Angel climbed over the fence.

The moment Angel grabbed Lana’s arm, she hung up. Yes! Now you’ve got 
her! Look at the PARKING LOT FLOOR PLANS. If Angel witnessed the crime 
from the spot where she said she did, the wall would have blocked her 
view, and she couldn’t have seen Lana making a phone call! Present the 
PARKING LOT FLOOR PLANS at the new statement (“used her cell phone”).

The phone was on the other side of the partition, so Angel must be 
lying! Edgeworth asks a question, though: what lie has the witness told, 
exactly? You now have three choices. The order of events wouldn’t make 
much difference. Also, Angel seemed very sure about what she saw Lana 
doing. Therefore, she must have seen it from a different place.

Select that she is lying about where she saw it. It would have been 
pointless for her to lie about Lana’s attempted use of the emergency 
phone. Angel did see her doing this, so she must have witnessed the 
crime from somewhere else!

Predictably, the judge now asks where she saw it, and you have to point 
it out on the PARKING LOT FLOOR PLANS. Remember that Angel doesn’t work 
at the prosecutor’s office and couldn’t have parked in A Block. The only 
place where she could have seen everything Lana was doing without being 
in A Block was the security guard office; where she said earlier that 
she had gone to take a lunch to her boyfriend.

Angel says that she’s not turning back and will make sure that justice 
is served. Ema is confused: why did Angel lie? She could have just said 
she witnessed the crime from the security guard station, and it wouldn’t 
have damaged her testimony. And as Edgeworth says, the fact still stands 
that Lana stabbed Goodman.

Phoenix objects and says that it does not. If a witness is found lying 
in their testimony, they’re guilty of perjury. Angel wouldn’t lie 
without good reason. The judge asks what her reason is. Ema tells you to 
review what you know. Angel saw the crime from the security guard 
office, but said she saw it from B Block.

It must make a difference, but what? Difference in lighting is 
meaningless, and angle to view wouldn’t change anything. However, from 
the office, it would have taken her much longer to get to the crime! 
Select distance to the crime. She would have seen the same thing, but 
could not have gone to apprehend Lana!

Angel says that when she brought her boyfriend his lunch, he wasn’t 
there, so she waited. She then saw the crime from the guard post and 
found herself running toward the scene. However, the door was locked, so 
she ran around the other direction to B Block. It probably took her five 
minutes to get to the scene of the crime.

This changes things, but it was still the defendant who stabbed him. As 
you should do as often as possible, object. Five minutes from the 
witnessing point to the scene of the crime is a long time. If you were a 
criminal, in five minutes you’d flee! However, Lana stayed at the scene 
of the crime--no criminal would behave that way!

The judge says that the testimony is over, as she has a grudge against 
the defendant and there is a blank. He is about to adjourn court, but 
Angel stops him, saying that she has decisive evidence. The judge allows 
her to testify.


Angel should have mentioned those five minutes when she wasn’t looking 
at the crime scene. But now, to the matter of the victim’s shoe...did 
she not bring this up...? Two types of blood were found on this shoe! 
One was of course the victim’s. And the other was...! The defendant, Ms. 
Lana Skye’s blood! This shoe proves it! It’s flawless, decisive 

Edgeworth says that he can’t accept this as evidence. He says Angel 
should know the two rules of evidence law. Rule 1: no evidence shall be 
shown without the approval of the police department. The shoe is illegal 
evidence! Angel says, however, that it was tested earlier that day by 
forensics, and was approved by the police department.

The VICTIM’S SHOE is added to the court record.


Since you just got new evidence, it’s a good idea to examine it more 
closely. Check the VICTIM’S SHOE and examine the blood on the side. That 
blood is Lana’s, it came from her right hand when she cut it. Examine 
the blood on the sole. This is Goodman’s--he must have stepped in a 
puddle of his own blood.

Now that you know more about the decisive evidence, press the final 
statement, in which Angel asserts that it’s flawless and decisive. You 
have to prove what the problem is with the shoe. Of course there’s a 
problem, so say that there is. There’s a clear contradiction!

You have to show the problem with the VICTIM’S SHOE. There is a big one: 
how did blood get on the bottom of his shoe? Highlight the blood on the 
sole and present. Edgeworth asks what the problem is, and you have to 
present evidence.

Check the CRIME PHOTO again. Aha! There is NO blood on the floor! There 
aren’t any footprints! What blood could he have stepped in? Present the 
CRIME PHOTO. If there was blood on the bottom of Goodman’s shoe, why was 
were no bloody footprints left at the scene? Edgeworth objects (duh!), 
saying that the photo only shows part of the floor. Phoenix counter-
objects, saying the bloody footprints would have been found.

At the scene, they found nothing of the sort! Ema and the judge ask why 
there were no footprints. Phoenix says he doesn’t know. Edgeworth then 
says that there is a vital hint to the truth in the testimony. Angel 
said that when she arrested Lana, Lana resisted by kicking over an oil 
drum. Edgeworth then asks if the drum was empty.

Angel says it was full of water. Edgeworth then says that Lana kicked 
over the oil drum in order to erase the bloodstains. He calls for the 
verdict, even though Ema believes that Angel was lying about the water. 
Angel stops the judge and asks if Ema said she was on the prosecution’s 
side. She did, so Angel shows new evidence to prove she wasn’t lying.

It’s a photograph of Goodman lying in the trunk, next to a pool of 
water. This proves she wasn’t lying and erases the last doubt. Suddenly, 
Phoenix is haunted by a vision of Mia, telling him to take another good 
look. Phoenix objects and says there’s a problem with the photograph. 
You now have to point it out.

Remember that Lana mentioned a muffler while talking on her cell phone. 
What if she didn’t mean a scarf, but the muffler on the car? The problem 
is in the car’s muffler. For those of you, like me, who don’t know cars, 
that’s the exhaust pipe, or the little pipe coming out from the back. 
There’s something in it! Highlight the muffler and present.

Angel tries to say that it’s not important, and you have to say why it 
is. Lana mentioned it in her cell phone conversation, so present LANA’S 
CELL PHONE. If it was important enough for her to talk about it, it must 
be some kind of vital evidence!

The judge suspends proceedings for a thirty minute recess, so you can 
save your data. After discussing the trial for a moment, Jake Marshall 
appears, saying he wanted to see how the trial was going. Ema mentions 
the muffler, and Marshall says that he’s sure she was wearing a red 
muffler that day. However, she wasn’t wearing it at the crime scene.

When court reconvenes, Edgeworth seems incredibly pissed off about 
something. Suddenly, a strange man enters the courtroom. Phoenix asks 
who he is, and the judge says he’s the district chief of police. The man 
introduces himself as Damon Gant. He says he came to help out “Edgey” by 
bringing Lana’s red muffler. She was wearing it at the crime scene, but 
according to Gant, stuffed it in the exhaust pipe!

Gant then shows another piece of evidence, a switchblade knide, which 
the judge accepts. He then asks Phoenix to open it. Just examine the 
switch on the side and the blade wil come out. The tip is broken, and 
there’s a dark red bloodstain. The SWITCHBLADE KNIFE is added to the 
court record.

The judge then asks Gant to testify on the split between prosecutors and 
police, and the knife.


This knife is special, but Gant can’t say how here, unless there’s 
evidence to prove a connection between the knife and Goodman. That was a 
bad day for the department, and they weren’t in shape to do any 
investigation. A detective was killed at the police department, 
see...what a mess! The time of the crime? 5:15. Scary coincidence, eh? 
It’s not officially linked to this here case, so he can’t talk much 
about it.

There was a murder at the police department at the exact time of 
Detective Goodman’s death. The police department is in the middle of a 
top secret investigation of the murder. Phoenix is then allowed to 
cross-examine Gant.


First, examine the SWITCHBLADE KNIFE. Specifically, read the tag. It 
says “SL-9 2” which reminds Phoenix of a similar code, “DL-6”--it’s a 
case number. Now that you know a bit more, press the vague first 
statement. Gant says that it’s hard to come by that knife anywhere else, 
and Phoenix asks if the special part is the tag.

Gant can’t say that either. Edgeworth asks why there were two knives at 
the crime scene--it’s a mystery. Press the second statement, and Phoenix 
says that the knife was at the crime scene and must be connected to the 
case. There must be something about the knife that links it to 
Goodman...maybe it’s the evidence that’s had you stumped!

The tag on the knife read “SL-9”...and this turned upside down is “6-
7S”, exactly what’s on the VICTIM’S NOTE! This is the most enigmatic 
piece of evidence, so present the VICTIM’S NOTE at the second statement. 
The note is upside-down--when you turn it over, it reads “2/21 SL-9”. 
Gant says you win and adds a statemen saying that the knife was evidence 
in a case that stolen.

You need to know more about this, so press the new statement. The knife 
was stolen on the day of the murder, and was a murder weapon in a case 
long solved. The knife was stolen on the day of the murder, and later 
found at the crime scene. There’s got to be a connection!

To learn more, press the statement in which Gant says a detective was 
killed. On the same day a detective was killed at the prosecutor’s 
office, another detective was killed at the police department. There’s a 
suspect who was just arrested, but there’s a lot of unanswered 
questions. Phoenix asks for info on the case, and Gant agrees to tell 
him only one thing.

You already know when he died, and how he was killed won’t help much. 
Select that you want to know where the victim was found. Gant says the 
crime took place in the evidence room at the police department. Ema 
remembers that this was the place where the SWITCHBLADE KNIFE was stolen 
from. There’s the connection!

Now that you know there’s a link, you can get Gant to talk more about 
it. Press the final statement (“not officially linked”) to bring up your 
connection. The knife found in the lot was stolen from the evidence 
room. Also, the victim wrote down the numbers on the knife’s tag. The 
detective murdered at the police department was killed in that very 
evidence room!

Gant agrees to give out the information unofficially, and adds a new 
statement saying he’ll cooperate. Press this new statement to get a list 
of things to ask about the detective. His division and gender won’t mean 
anything, so ask his ID number. The number is 5842189. The judge asks if 
it tells you something--it does.

You now have to present what it tells you. There’s only one ID number in 
the court record: GOODMAN’S ID. Check the card to find that the number 
is...5842189! Present GOODMAN’S ID. Two places, two detectives murdered 
at the same time, and the ID number tells you that they’re both Bruce 
Goodman! Goodman was murdered in both the police department and evidence 
room at the same time!

Edgeworth, as per usual, asks why he didn’t know about this. Gant says 
it’s his own fault. Edgeworth was brought the news earlier by Mike 
Meekins, the odd patrolman who showed up in Edgeworth’s office. 
Edgeworth asks why Gant couldn’t have submitted the report as evidence, 
and Gant reminds him of the second rule of evidence law: new evidence 
shown must be relevant to the case.

The report wasn’t on the list of evidence, so he couldn’t submit it 
until relevancy was proven. Now that the case is thoroughly Twilight 
Zone, court is adjourned for another day of investigating.

DETECTIVE WORK 2                                            (5ASHESDW2)

“Perpetrator Officer Meekins reporting, sir!”-Mike Meekins


Back at the office, Phoenix and Ema discuss the mysterious case for a 
while. Ema apparently has some new scientific trick, so you 
automatically head off to the parking lot.


Ema doesn’t think you should worry about the police department murder. 
She says that Lana would never erase evidence by kicking over the oil 
drum, but Phoenix says that there’s no way to know whether or not there 
were bloodstains. Ema says the situation calls for “Luminol testing 
fluid” and that this will be able to find bloodstains.

To test for blood with Luminol, just touch the screen to spray. If 
there’s blood, it will glow. Spray right behind the trunk of the car, 
and keep spraying until the area is highlighted with a crosshair. Touch 
the crosshair to examine the bloodstain...something is scientifically 
“odd” about it.

What’s odd about it? Well, if somebody was stabbed here, wouldn’t there 
be more blood? The amount of blood is the problem. Ema marks the 
is added to the court record.

Angel Starr suddenly shows up, so talk to her about today’s trial. Angel 
says she saw the crime from the security office but was afraid that 
wouldn’t sound “convincing” enough. However, it doesn’t change that she 
saw Lana stab Goodman. Talk about Detective Starr to learn the she was a 
detective two years ago.

Any criminal she faced would confess their information, and that’s how 
she became known as the “Cough-up Queen”. She was fired, however, 
because of the SL-9 incident. SL-9 is the mysterious incident on the 
VICTIM’S NOTE and SWITCHBLADE KNIFE, so present either one of those to 
learn more.

Goodman was the head detective on that case, in which the knife was the 
murder weapon. It was due for transferal on the day of the crime, the 
“cleaning day” that Edgeworth mentioned. To get more info, present 
GOODMAN’S ID to tell Angel about the same-guy-killed-twice mystery. She 
thinks it’s impossible.

To get your last piece of info out of Angel, present the CRIME PHOTO. 
After seeing the crime, she ran to B Block and took the photo. As Ema 
points out, that would be five minutes after the crime. That was the 
hole in her testimony. Ema accuses her of lying, and Angel says that 
she’s had her testimony disregarded before.

Talk to her about the SL-9 incident. Two years ago, it was the biggest 
case she’d handled. Here, you’ll see a picture of Angel, Goodman and 
Marshall standing around a table, as well as a fourth unidentified 
character. The police and prosecutors couldn’t find decisive evidence, 
but it was solved, and the criminal was caught and executed.

However, they never did find decisive evidence, so they executed him 
fabricated evidence. After the case, everybody who had worked on it was 
either demoted or fired, including Angel and Jake Marshall, who was 
demoted to a patrolman.

Talk about Detective Marshall. They all investigated the case, including 
Jake, but they were all dealt with anyway. However, he hasn’t forgotten, 
and neither has Angel. There was “another side” to that case that 
they’re both after now. The only reason she sells lunches in the 
prosecutor’s office is so she can investigate using her boyfriends.

There’s definitely a connection between this murder and SL-9. Angel 
gives you a STEAK LUNCH that you can use to put Marshall (another of her 
boyfriends) in a good mood. It goes in the court record. Ema asks “what 
happened” to Marshall, and says that when he helped her sister with 
cases, “he used to be so nice”.

Your work is done here, so go to investigate the other crime scene. Go 
to the security guard office via the police department entrance.


The western decor suggests that this office belongs to Marshall, but 
he’s not here. Go back to the police department entrance.


Gumshoe appears, saying that they’ve caught the criminal in the evidence 
room stabbing and they need evidence. He then tells you to head out to 
the detention center if you want to know more. Go to the detention 
center via the Wright & Co. Law Offices.


It appears that the perpetrator is Mike Meekins. Talk to him about the 
day of the crime. He had some business that day, so he went to the 
evidence room. The guard office was empty; Marshall should have been 
there, but wasn’t in. Meekins glanced at the monitor and saw a 
suspicious person in the evidence room.

After that, he blacked out, and came to in the detention center. Ema 
notices that he hurt his hand, just like Lana did at the parking lot. 
Talk about the victim. Meekins says that he was the victim, and didn’t 
know Goodman. He also has no motive or memory of committing the crime.

Talk about his bandaged hand. This happened when Goodman was stabbed, 
but Meekins tells a mysterious story: when Goodman pointed the knife at 
him, he blacked out, and woke up in the evidence room alone. The body 
vanished! When he looked down, his hand was wounded.

Present GOODMAN’S ID to continue the conversation. It jogs something in 
Meekins’s memory. Talk about crime details. Meekins explains that he 
didn’t know Goodman, so he thought he was suspicious. He entered the 
room and asked Goodman to display his ID card. Suddenly, Goodman pointed 
a knife at Meekins.

Meekins lept at him in self-defence, then blacked out. Talk about reason 
for arrest, and Ema says they have know way of knowing that the victim 
was really the victim. Because the body disappeared, they don’t even 
know if anybody died. They told Meekins it had to be Goodman because 
they knew he was in the evidence room.

Meekins then says there was a video tape from the security camera on the 
evidence room. The crime is on the tape. Go to the criminal affairs 
department so you can investigate the crime scene.


You’ll meet Damon Gant here. Talk about Edgeworth to learn that he’s in 
an inquiry committee. They’ve had trouble with him since the Gourd Lake 
incident, when you found that Manfred von Karma was forging evidence. 
This has damaged the prosecutors’ reputation, so it might be bad for 
anybody else found to be forging evidence--including Edgeworth.

Talk about the evident incident. The evidence is saying that Goodman was 
stabbed in two places at once. Gant says that he can’t stand keeping 
secrets, but he has to keep the head detective’s trap shut. Ema suggests 
that you ask him what Gant was picking on him about.

Examine the Head Detective at the desk in the back. He explains that 
Gant wanted him to check Goodman’s desk for anything that could be a 
clue. Nothing belonging to Goodman is still here, except a lost item 
report that he didn’t finish. He lost something on the day of the crime. 
GOODMAN’S LOST ITEM REPORT is added to the court record.

Now you should check the crime scene, so talk to Gant about permission 
granted. He allows you to investigate the evidence room. He also gives 
you a guest ID so you can get in. Go to the security guard office via 
the police department entrance.


Now that you have a card, examine the card reader, the small device on 
the left side of the door. The door goes to the evidence room, but it 
doesn’t open because somebody turned off the card reader. Officer 
Marshall appears; this is, as you surmised, his office. He turns on the 
card reader so you can get to the crime scene.

Phoenix wants to ask Marshall a few questions, but he doesn’t want to 
talk. Don’t you have something that can put him in a good mood? Yes! 
Present the STEAK LUNCH you got from Angel, which will leave the court 
record. Through mouthfuls of steak, Marshall agrees to talk to you.

First, talk about the guard office. Marshall is in charge of security 
for the evidence room. Phoenix mentions that Meekins said Marshall 
wasn’t at his station when the stabbing occurred. Marshall says that he 
“lost his fire for the job” when he was demoted two years ago, and was 
out on the highway at 5:15.

He thinks that the security cameras do a good enough job anyway. Talk 
about Marshall to bring up that he was a detective two years ago. 
However, he and Angel are still investigating SL-9. Marshall says that 
he can’t let it go, and that’s all there is to it. Ema asks what 
happened in the case, and Marshall says she’s better off not knowing.

The SL-9 incident is dead as of the evidence transferals anyway. Talk 
about the security system, and Marshall says that he only knows what two 
of the machines do. The security cameras are easiest to understand. If 
nothing happens, the footage is automatically erased every three hours. 
Meekins and Goodman might be on one of those tapes.

Marshall goes on to say that you need an ID card to get into the 
evidence room, and that the card reader keeps a record of every ID that 
is swiped. You then see the list--there were five ID cards swiped to the 
evidence room that day, including one duplicate. Ema is sure that she’s 
seen one of the numbers on the record before.

Talk about transferal, and Marshall explains that only evidence from 
solved cases goes in the evidence room. They’re kept under a detective’s 
supervision for two years, so they can reinvestigate if there’s a 
mistake. After two years, a case is dead forever, and its evidence goes 
to a vault at the police station.

You now have to prove that the ID card record is linked to the murder so 
that you can get it. If Bruce Goodman’s ID number was on the list, it 
would prove a connection! Present GOODMAN’S ID--the fourth number on the 
list is a match. It was also used right before the stabbing.

What’s weird is that Meekins said that Goodman pointed a knife at him 
after he asked for an ID. If he’d had an ID, why didn’t he just show it? 
Marshall gives up the ID CARD RECORD which will be added to the court 
record. Phoenix thinks it might be a good idea to show the list to other 
people with IDs.

It’s finally time to investigate the evidence room, so go in there now.


Phoenix scares Ema by comparing the place to a morgue, and when Gumshoe 
shows up, she thinks he’s a ghost. Gumshoe asks if it’s true that Chief 
Gant will lend anyone 50 dollars. He says that he was put in charge of 
the investigation for a day, but you’re boss since you got permission. 
He also gives you the EVIDENCE ROOM FLOORPLANS for the court record.

Talk to him about judge for a day. Gumshoe was put in charge of 
investigating the police department murder, but he got kicked off when 
it was finished so his underlings could prepare for the trial. He says 
he’s going to put the case to rest in his own evidence locker, one that 
only he can open.

Talk about Edgeworth. Gumshoe says he’s in an inquiry committee to 
figure out who messed up in court. Edgeworth just can’t get away from 
the SL-9 incident--it was the “beginning of the end” for him. Talk about 
the evidence safe.

The lockers are set so that only a certain fingerprint can open them. 
There’s a sensor on the other side of the handle, so the fingerprint 
locks are so subtle that some people don’t even know about them. The 
EVIDENCE LOCKER is added to the court record.

Gumshoe has an ID here, so present the ID CARD RECORD. Gumshoe 
recognizes that the second number on the list belongs to Edgeworth! The 
ID CARD RECORD is updated in the court record; you now have both Goodman 
and Edgeworth’s names. But why would Edgeworth have come to the evidence 

Time to get down to some serious investigating. Start by examining the 
white cloth hanging out of the locker on the upper-left. It looks like a 
shirt, but Gumshoe didn’t put it there. He thinks it was opened recently 
because the guard usually informs the detectives about things hanging 
out of lockers.

Move to the right and examine the open locker behind the tape and under 
the red light. It’s Detective Goodman’s locker; if it closed, they 
wouldn’t be able to get it open again. It’s empty, so the evidence must 
have been moved. Next, examine the glove hanging over the top of the 
yellow tape. That’s evidence from the SL-9 incident. The RUBBER GLOVE is 
added to the court record.

Continue the investigation by examining the broken shards under 
Goodman’s locker, behind the tape. That is also from the SL-9 incident, 
so select to check it out closer. Ema suggests that you try to put it 
back together. Phoenix can figure out which is the bottom, so you’ll 
build off of that.

Gumshoe is obviously not that smart because this really isn’t hard. 
First, go to fragment 5. Rotate it twice (it doesn’t matter which 
direction if you’re doing it twice) and combine. Go to fragment 4, 
rotate it twice and combine. Go to fragment 6, rotate it 
counterclockwise once and combine.

Go to fragment 1, rotate it clockwise once and combine. Go to fragment 
8, rotate it counterclockwise once and combine. Go to fragment 3, rotate 
it counterclockwise once and combine. Go to fragment 2, rotate it twice 
and combine. Finally, rotate fragment seven clockwise once and combine. 
That will finish the jar.

However, there’s a chunk missing--was part of it stolen? The UNSTABLE 
JAR is added to the court record. Next, examine the paint and saw in the 
bottom-right corner. This is where Gumshoe created the Blue Badger. Now, 
examine the thing that’s been begging your attention the whole time: 
that bloody handprint at the end of the top row of lockers.

It’s a bit worn. Maybe somebody tried to wipe it off. Ema thinks there 
might be other bloodstains in the room, so it’s time to break out the 
LUMINOL TESTING FLUID. Find it in the court record and select to spray 
it. Spray under Goodman’s locker to find a large amount of blood. It 
proves that something happened in front of the locker.

Spray the bloody handprint you can already see. The locker it’s on 
belongs to Gumshoe! Move left and spray the locker with the white cloth 
sticking out of it. There’s another bloody handprint! There’s no reason 
for the murderer to have touched that locker. Next, you want to learn 
more about the Blue Badger from Gumshoe. He says that they took the Blue 
Badger away from the entrance after the awards ceremony.

Next, time to get somebody to tell you about this SL-9 thing. Present 
the VICTIM’S NOTE. SL-9 was Edgeworth’s first case, so evidence must be 
turning up because it’s not over. Talk about the SL-9 incident. It was a 
violent serial killing, but the killer made a mistake which Edgeworth 
built his case around.

That case is what started the rumors about Edgeworth. Detective Goodman 
was in charge of the SL-9 incident--he, the victim, took the knife from 
the locker! Gumshoe says that Edgeworth’s inquiry committee should be 
ending soon. He could tell you more about this, so go to the high 
prosecutor’s office via the security guard office, police department 
entrance, and underground parking lot.


The Bellboy from episode 2 shows up for a moment and then leaves. After 
discussing Gumshoe’s wonderfully helpful report, talk to Edgeworth about 
the inquiry committee. Apparently, they decided to treat it as a 
communications error rather than concealing evidence. Some believed he 
was concealing evidence, so they gave him a warning.

He’s heard them giving him warnings so many times since two years ago. 
Talk about tomorrow’s trial. Edgeworth will still be prosecuting, but 
all further investigations will be directly under the authority of Damon 
Gant, so all he can do is wait for results.

Time to gently bring the subject to SL-9, so present the ID CARD RECORD 
to ask why he went to the evidence room. Edgeworth says he was asked to 
go by Chief Gant so he could get evidence from a case that wrapped up 
half a year ago that he wanted kept at the prosecutor’s office.

The currently unrelated SCREWDRIVER is added to the court record, 
although Edgeworth insists it has nothing to do with the current case. 
Next, present the VICTIM’S NOTE. Everything has to do with the SL-9 
incident, and the dark suspicion Edgeworth was wrapped up in. Talk about 
allegations of forgery.

The SL-9 incident was a serial killing case, and the deputy chief of 
police at that time was Damon Gant. Gant was the best detective they 
had, and Edgeworth was nervous about working with him. He did use 
slightly extreme methods, but only because they were dealing with a 
vicious murderer. He didn’t touch the evidence.

Edgeworth then tells Ema that Lana wanted to know something: is she 
still working on scientific investigation? If so, you might have use for 
this: aluminum powder for fingerprinting. He gives you the 
FINGERPRINTING SET for the court record, as well as a file of prints for 
everybody involved.

There was definitely a suspicious handprint somewhere, so go to the 
evidence room via the underground parking lot, police department 
entrance and security guard office.


Ema launches into a tutorial on fingerprinting. First, select a finger. 
The index finger is clearest, so touch it. Next, spread powder all over 
the screen with the stylus and blow into the microphone. You turn up a 
print, but whoever left it must have worn gloves, because there’s no 
pattern. Ema suggests you look for other prints.

There are other prints on the locker, at the lower left. Examine them, 
spread the powder thickly and blow. You’ll find a clear print. The 
prints aren’t part of your case, and this locker belongs to Gumshoe. 
Match the prints to Gumshoe’s. Of course, as Phoenix eloquently points 
out, so what?

However, there was another print. Move left and examine the locker with 
the white cloth stickin out, the one you found blood on. Select to check 
for prints. Ema mentions that any prints on the bloody handprint will 
have been wiped away, so you should look for prints not part of the 

If this were a complete hand, the fourth finger would be next to the 
third finger. Examine the spot where the fourth finger would be if it 
was there, cover the screen and blow. You’ll get a complete print. Of 
the prints on file, the best match belongs to...Jake Marshall! Match the 
prints to Marshall’s.

MARSHALL’S PRINTS are added to the court record. You have Jake 
Marshall’s fingerprints on a bloodstain that was wiped away! Now that 
you have a new suspect, save and prepare for the trial.

TRIAL 2                                                      (5ASHEST2)

“I had to do it that day. I couldn’t just stand by and let it die.”-Jake 

The prosecution and defence are both thoroughly confused by the nature 
of the case. Lana appears and restates the mystery, saying that the 
police are clueless. She struck up a plea bargain for the truth in 
exchange for no capital punishment. Your secret weapon for today is 
Marshall’s bloodstained prints.

Edgeworth makes his opening statement: today, the evidence he presents 
will concern the police department murder. As the last trial was about 
the stabbing in the parking lot, so this one is about the stabbing in 
the evidence room. Edgeworth’s first witness is the suspect, Mike 


Although it’s not Meekins’s normal duty, he was asigned to guard the 
evidence room that day. He spotted a suspicious man on the security 
screen, and rushed into the room! He was only doing what he was trained 
to do, sir! He was suddenly attacked! He fought for his life! Then 
he...he did it! After that he passed out until another officer smacked 
him awake.


(NOTE: This is not the set order you have to press in. It’s just how I 
did it)

You need more information, so press the statement about the suspicious 
man, the second one. In order to enter the evidence room, you need an ID 
card. Meekins’s card number is on the ID CARD RECORD: 4989596. It’s on 
there twice--the first time was when he went to put the Blue Badger in 
the evidence room.

The second was when he went to retrieve it, and that was when he saw the 
mystery man. The ID CARD RECORD is updated in the court record. Next, 
why was a general affairs patrolman at the evidence room? Press the 
first statement. It was evidence transferal day, so many officers were 
given unusual orders.

Meekins’s job was to guard the Blue Badger and make sure it wasn’t 
broken during the transferal. There were so many people running around 
that he relocated it to the evidence room. Next, press the last 
statement to ask about his unconsiousness. He was smacked awake at about 
5:30, and returned the Blue Badger to the entrance.

The next mysterious statement is the third one, in which Meekins is 
attacked. Press that statement to ask exactly what happened to him. When 
Detective Goodman pulled a knife, he was as surprised as Meekins. That’s 
when he reacted, struggling to detain Goodman, wounding his hand in the 

When he saw the blood on his hand, he grabbed Goodman’s collar. Press 
the next statement (“I fought for my life”) to get part 2 of this 
riveting account. Goodman let his guard down, so Meekins disarmed him 
and grabbed the knife. Goodman’s white coat was covered with blood, and 
he punched Meekins in the face.

Only one thing now remins unclear: was the man he fought really the 
victim? To clarify, Meekins presents a video that Chief Gant sent him. 
It’s footage from the security camera in the evidence room. The judge 
orders Meekins to show the video, which he does. The video shows Goodman 
entering and opening his locker, Meekins following behind him, the two 
fighting, and Meekins unconsious on the floor.

However, that “wriggling piece of plywood”, the Blue Badger, is in the 
way for most of it. The SECURITY VIDEO is added to the court record. 
Edgeworth says that Meekins’s testimony will suffice more than the 
“clearly incomplete footage”. Meekins testifies again about the identity 
of his assailant.


His face can’t be clearly seen in the video, but there’s no question 
that the other person was Detective Goodman, sir! I mean, he opened the 
locker, which required Detective Goodman’s fingerprint to do! The locker 
he opened is unquestionably Detective Goodman’s locker, sir! So it must 
be him! No-one else could have unlocked it!


His face isn’t in the video, but did Meekins see it? Press the first 
statement to ask. He did not get a good look at him. If he didn’t, how 
does he know so well that it was Goodman? Press the second statement to 
ask. The video is incomplete, so only Meekins can verify. Edgeworth asks 
why he’s so sure.

The answer’s in the next statement: he opened the locker coded to 
Goodman’s fingerprint. Press this statement to learn that the only 
person who can open a locker is the detective it was assigned to. Maybe 
it wasn’t Goodman’s locker, but Meekins seems sure it was. Press the 
fourth statement (“unquestionably Detective Goodman’s”).

Phoenix asks how he knows. Meekins heard it from the cafeteria workers, 
and Edgeworth can verify it from a more reliable source. This all seems 
to point to one place, so press the final statement. Meekins asks why 
the man’s face is so important if he opened the locker. The video shows 
him doing this. Edgeworth asks if you can find a problem with it.

There is a problem, so say that. There is a contradiction that proves it 
may not be Goodman. You now have to point it out, using the buttons at 
the bottom of the screen to pause, fast-forward, and rewind the video. 
The problem can be best seen at timestamp 17:14:31 (that is, 5:14 PM and 
31 seconds). Fast forward to then and pause.

See Goodman’s locker? It’s the second from the left in the top row. If 
you’re not sure which one, fast-forward ahead to see it being opened. 
There’s a big problem with that locker: the light is on! That must mean 
it’s already open! Place the crosshairs over the light and present. The 
locker system works so that a light turns on if a fingerprint matches.

The light is already lit before the victim opens the locker. The locker 
is open when the victim grabs the handle! The locker wasn’t even locked 
on the day of the crime! Edgeworth objects, saying that the lockers 
automatically lock themselves aftr being closed. The judge asks you why 
it wasn’t locked, and Ema thinks that something jammed the sensor.

There’s a clue to this somewhere in the video, so you’ll look at it 
again. Fast-forward to the part where Goodman opens the locker, and 
watch closely--something falls out! This object might have jammed the 
locker! Pause at timestamp 17:14:42 and inch forward to the very 
beginning of 17:14:43. Highlight the falling object and present.

You can’t be sure that the object was in the locker. What if it was 
inserted between the sensor and the door? The white thing was stuck in 
that exact place. However, it would have to be very thin, and an 
insulator to block the current. You will have to present the object that 
blocked the door.

It would have to be an object found near the scene in the evidence room. 
Of those, only one could be inserted in a door, and only one is made of 
an insulating material: the RUBBER GLOVE. Present that. It has a tag 
that reads “SL-9 incident” so it must have been in Goodman’s locker. 
With the glove stuck, anybody could have opened the locker!

However, all you’ve done is prove the possibility that it might not have 
been Goodman. Meekins testifies again about this.


There’s one other thing that proves the man was Detective Goodman, sir! 
To enter the evidence room, one must use their ID card! When an ID card 
is used, there’s a record of it! At the time of the crime, the detective 
had used his card!

The ID CARD RECORD is, of course, in the court record. However, the 
judge is confused (wow) about something: why were so few people in the 
evidence room on transferal day? Edgeworth says that this evidence room 
is only for specific cases: violent crimes against police department 
staff. Only a few cases there were up for transferal.


Hmm...Goodman’s ID was found in the same place as his body--the 
underground parking lot. If he entered the evidence room at the same 
time that he was at the prosecutor’s office, he wouldn’t have had the 
card! More evidence to prove this is GOODMAN’S LOST ITEM REPORT. Goodman 
lost something important enough to fill this out, so there’s a high 
probability that he wasn’t carrying his card!

Present GOODMAN’S LOST ITEM REPORT at the fourth statement (“used his 
card”) to bring this up. Quite simply, this means that the man Meekins 
encountered was not Goodman, but whoever stole his ID card! Edgeworth 
apparently congratulates you (why is that always so sinister?) and 
offers to summarize your case.

At 5:15 PM, Mike Meekins entered the evidence room, but inside was not 
Detective Goodman. This is proven by two points: the locker in the 
evidence room was already unlocked, and the victim lost his ID card. 
Thus, if the victim in the video is fake, then the murder in the 
evidence room is also fake!

That means that the only crime was in the underground parking lot, where 
a witness saw Lana Skye wield a knife against the victim! GOD DAMMIT! 
There are still questions, but a guilty verdict seems inevitable. When 
all else fails, object! Raise an objection when prompted.

Phoenix says that it cannot be proven that the murder in the parking lot 
is unrelated, mainly because of the large amounts of blood you found in 
the evidence room. For further examination, you’ll need more witnesses, 
but Edgeworth doesn’t have any more. Phoenix decides it’s time to bring 
out the secret weapon.

He requests a specific witness who would know the truth about what 
happened. You now have to say their name--it is, of course, Jake 
Marshall. Select Marshall and present. Edgeworth agrees to comply, and 
court goes to thirty minute recess.

Lana tells you that you’ve “figured everything out” and Ema gets mad at 
her for not telling them anything. Gumshoe appears (“hope I’m not 
interrupting anything”) carrying the files for the SL-9 incident; 
apparently Lana asked for them in your name. The SL-9 INCIDENT FILES are 
added to the thoroughly bloated court record. According to the files, 
both Ema and Lana were involved.

Two years ago, the police classified it as the SL-9 incident, but the 
rest of the world knew it as the “Joe Darke killings”. This makes Ema 
very distraught. Read through the file: Goodman, Angel, Marshall, Gant, 
Ema, and Lana--everybody connected to the current case is involved in 
the SL-9 incident.

You’ll get a chance to save, and then the trial starts again. After 
Phoenix, Edgeworth, and the judge wade through a swamp of Marshall’s 
pseudo-cowboy crap, he testifies.


Marshall’s job was to keep a wary eye on that bone orchard (evidence 
room). They said he was supposed to make rounds three times a day, but 
that ain’t his style. Besides, the room’s protected by two security 
systems, anyway. If he remembers right, he was at a street-side saloon 
at the time it went down. He’s just an innocent travelin’ man, so if 
you’re out of ammo it’s time he hit the trail.


Alright, Marshall claims he wasn’t at the scene of the crime. However, 
you discovered his prints on the bloodstain at the evidence room! 
Present MARSHALL’S PRINTS at the statement about the roadside saloon. 
Phoenix says that Marshall wasn’t at the security room, but they called 
him to testify anyway. Why?

Because you found his fingerprints at the scene! Marshall says they’re 
from the rounds he makes of the room occaisonally, but the prints were 
on a wiped bloodstain! Marshall testifies to explain about the 
bloodstained prints.


Like Marshall said, it’s only natural for his fignerprints to be in the 
evidence room. One of them just happened to be in the same place as the 
bloodstained handprint. The murderer touched the locker where his 
fingerprint was by chance, so the bloodstain and fingerprint are 
completely unrelated. Or didn’t you know the murderer was wearing 


Time to prove that he’s lying. First, get some more info on why his 
fingerprints would be in the room. Press the first statement. The 
fingerprints are from his rounds, and also, the locker they were on is 
his. MARSHALL’S PRINTS are updated in the court record.

Continue by pressing the final statement, the one about the murderer 
wearing gloves. Phoenix asks how he knows, and Marshall says he keeps up 
with the reports. The bloodstain left on Gumshoe’s locker had no 
fingerprints. The only logical conclusion is that the murderer, wearing 
gloves, happened to place his hand on Marshall’s fingerprint.

Marshall goes on to say that the only reality is the SECURITY VIDEO and 
that if he’s not there, you can’t incriminate him. A statement is added 
saying “too bad it wasn’t me in the video”. Press it, as always when a 
new statement appears. If you want to tie Marshall to the crime, the 
video is the only evidence you have. However, it’s full of blind spots.

If somebody knew the exact position of the camera, he could leave the 
room completely invisible. If there is evidence to prove Marshall was 
present in the video, you have to show it know. Select to show evidence, 
and you’ll be watching the SECURITY VIDEO again.

Fast-forward to near the end of the tape, timestamp 17:15:12. Remember 
that Marshall’s locker is the farthest to the left on the upper row, 
where his prints were found. If you look at it through most of the 
video, it’s the same as the others, but if you look at it on this 
timestamp, there’s a white cloth sticking out!

If something is in Marshall’s locker, the lock would have prevented 
anybody but him from putting it in there. If Marshall had been able to 
open the locker, he would have to have been there! Gumshoe mentioned 
that some people on the force don’t know about the locks. Highlight the 
white cloth and present.

Marshall says that you can’t prove he opened the locker. You now have to 
prove he did. Remember that only one detective can open a certain 
locker. Nobody else could have opened it, so present the EVIDENCE LOCKER 
to bring this up.

Marshall seems very distraught now, so Phoenix explains with the 
EVIDENCE ROOM FLOORPLANS. There’s nowhere to hide in the evidence room, 
but Meekins didn’t see Marshall. You’ll know have to use the plans to 
show where Marshall was.

After the fight, Goodman mysteriously disappeared. Marshall probably 
knew where the camera would show so he could hide. Goodman’s outfit is 
white--maybe Marshall disguised himself as Goodman, opened the locker, 
fought Meekins, then escaped and hit the disguise!

If that’s so, and Goodman was the victim, Marshall would have been 
standing where the victim was. Highlight the blue V and present. The 
“victim” was Marshall dressed as Goodman! Meekins didn’t see Goodman’s 
face, and didn’t know him. Also, when Meekins asksed for ID, Goodman 
pulled a knife.

He reacted this way because he was actually Marshall, and to show the ID 
would have been to give away his disguise. Marshall now wants hard, 
decisive evidence that he dressed up as Goodman (wierdly enough, the 
last 2 cases also involved people disguised as other people). Of course 
you don’t have anything like that.

Phoenix remembers what Mia used to say: “think outside the box!”. Don’t 
look for evidence why Marshall was in disguise, but evidence that came 
about because he was in disguise. Marshall didn’t originally intend to 
open his locker at the crime scene, but he did anyway. The fact the the 
cloth is sticking out means that he probably wanted to put it inside.

You’ll be looking at the SECURITY VIDEO again, trying to prove what 
exactly the white cloth is. The cloth is probably Goodman’s suit, but 
why did he have to put it away? Remember Meekins’s testimony: Goodman’s 
coat was covered with blood. Marshall would have to hide the jacket if 
there were bloodstains on it!

Go to timestamp 17:14:56, toward the end of the fight. At this point, 
bloodstains on the white jacket are clearly visible. Place the crosshair 
over them and click present. Marshall entered the evidence room 
disguised as Goodman, but didn’t expect Meekins to barge in.

When asked for ID, Marshall pulled a knife, and Meekins panicked. During 
the fight, the white coat Marshall was wearing was covered in blood. He 
couldn’t walk out like that, so he hid the coat in his locker. Marshall 
admits that you’re right and agrees to testify as to what he actually 


Marshall had to do it that day; he couldn’t just stand by and let it 
die. He stole the detective’s ID and dressed like him. He planned to 
take out the evidence. He wasn’t expecting Officer Meekins. He knocked 
him out and managed to escape. He knew which areas wouldn’t be caught on 
camera. There wasn’t any murder in the evidence room at 5:15.

However, large amounts of blood were found on the evidence room floor--
this probably came from Meekins’s bandaged hand, but it seemed like too 
much for that. While cross-examining a confession may seem sort of mean, 
you have to do it anyway.


First of all, what is “it”? Press the first statement (“had to do it”). 
It is the SL-9 incident that was going to completely end with transferal 
that day. By sneaking into the evidence room, Marshall wanted to steal 
the evidence and have one more look at it, refusing to let the case be 

Go on to press the second statement (“stole the detective’s ID”) to ask 
why Marshall dressed as Goodman. He would have to make it look like 
Goodman was carrying out a transferal or he’d be arrested. He stole 
Goodman’s ID card the morning of the incident, and left it on the floor 
in the prosecutor’s office parking lot.

Press the third statement (“wasn’t expecting”). Marshall planned to be 
in the evidence room for five minutes, but Meekins came in during that 
time. Marshall was surprised and pulled a knife, Meekins panicked, and 
the fight ensued, knocking Meekins out.

Press the fourth statement (“managed to escape”). Marshall researched 
the camera earlier, although his coat was bloodied in the fight with 
Meekins. If somebody had been in the security room, he would have been 
found out, so he hid the coat in his locker.

Finally, press the fifth statement (“wasn’t any murder”) to ask about 
the large amounts of blood. However, the victim was Marshall, and he’s 
still turns out that he didn’t even steal the evidence. The 
locker was already empty--somebody else stole the evidence earlier!

Phoenix asks Marshall why he did this. Stealing a detective’s ID and 
attacking a police officer is no small offence. Marshall, however, says 
that he’ll do anything to get an answer from his case, and adds a 
statement that just begs to be pressed, in which he says he can’t forget 
the SL-9 incident.

Press it. The case was solved two years ago, and Joe Darke was convicted 
for serial murder. Marshall says that something happened at the trial 
that nobody will talk about, but he doesn’t know what it is. Phoenix 
thinks he should present a real reason.

Read over the SL-9 INCIDENT FILES, specifically the page the lists the 
victims. Look over all of them. None of the names seem to mean much, 
except the last one. Neil...Marshall! Could they be somehow related? Go 
to the new statement and present the SL-9 INCIDENT FILES.

Marshall says that he’s sure Edgeworth knows the name. Two years ago, he 
won the King of Prosecutors award. Neil Marshall handled the SL-9 
incident before Edgeworth, until he was killed. He was also Jake 
Marshall’s brother.

Neil was investigating the Darke murders with Damon Gant, who at that 
time was Chief Detective, and the group of detectives Marshall was one 
of worked under them, desperate to find Joe Darke. Neil fought Darke and 
was killed, though he left behind evidence for the first time.

They used this to prosecute him and the case was closed. However, 
Marshall is sure that nobody could have beaten his brother in a fight. 
He’s convinced that there’s more to his brother’s death than in the 
records. At least now you know what happened at the police department: 
Marshall tried to steal the evidence on the last day the case was open.

Now that you know there was no murder in the evidence room, Edgeworth 
tries to pull the same trick he did earlier. Nobody was killed in the 
evidence room, so the real one must have been Lana stabbing Goodman at 
the underground parking lot. A verdict wasn’t reached at that trial.

This was only because the simaltaneous murder in the evidence room was a 
mystery. Now that that’s been cleared up, Lana is the only remaining 
suspect. Just when she’s about to be declared guilty, Ema shows up with 
a “scientific objection”.

She was in shock when she heard that the SL-9 incident was the Joe Darke 
Killings, but she knew what Marshall was doing and that his handprint 
had nothing to do with the crime. That left only the other handprint, 
the one on Gumshoe’s locker.

No prints were found there, and Ema looked again but couldn’t find 
anything. The traces of blood there are the only clue left, so you have 
to find something wrong with the handprint on that locker. Is there 
something you’re missing?

Choose to object, and you’ll have to present the problem. Wait a minute! 
In the video, in front of Gumshoe’s locker, was...the Blue Badger! If 
that was in the way, how did the handprint get there? Present the BLUE 

The Blue Badger is not on the floor plans, but when he is put in, he 
completely blocks Gumshoe’s locker. Ema suddenly appears, saying that if 
the print couldn’t have been put there after the Blue Badger was set 
down, it would have to have gotten there before!

This means that on that day, in the evidence room, blood was spilled 
twice! Once time was captured on tape, dropping a tiny amount of blood. 
The rest of the blood must have come from that other time. The person 
who spilled the blood the first time...was Detective Goodman!

The murder in the security tape is a fake, but the blood on the locker 
is unexplained! Edgeworth asks when the first murder took place, and the 
judge asks you to present evidence to prove the first incident occurred. 
There’s only one piece of evidence in the court record that mentions a 
time half an hour before 5:15.

Check the ID CARD RECORD. Somebody with the ID 7777777 entered the 
evidence room at 4:20 PM. Meekins brought in the Blue Badger at 4:50 PM, 
so it would have had to have been before that. It couldn’t have been 
Edgeworth because he wouldn’t have had time, so it must have been 
7777777. Present the ID CARD RECORD.

Edgeworth explains that it couldn’t have been him because of the time 
constraints. 7777777 must have been the real murderer, and since Goodman 
isn’t on there before 4:50, he must have gone in along with the real 
murderer. However, Edgeworth says that that number belongs to somebody 
of a high rank, and they can’t identify them without a charge.

Marshall has another question for Lana about the SL-9 incident: in that 
trial, did they use legitimate evidence? Lana takes the stand, saying 
that they did what they had to to get a conviction, even if it involved 
forging evidence. This causes such a stir that the trial is postponed 
until the following day.
So evidence was forged in the SL-9 your progress and 
prepare to get to the bottom of this.

DETECTIVE WORK 3                                            (5ASHESDW3)

“Criminals don’t mind playing foul, why should we?”-Lana Skye


Now that everything in this case leads back to the SL-9 incident, let’s 
find out what the hell it is.

Ema opens the sequence with something mysterious: Lana wanted Darke 
convicted so badly that she used “what happened to” Ema. On the night of 
the last killing, Niel Marshall’s murder, Darke tried to kill Ema. Neil 
was trying to save her, and since she was there, she was a witness. Talk 
about the SL-9 incident.

Two years ago, about this time of day, there was a terrible 
thunderstorm. Ema was alone in her sister’s office when Darke burst in 
with a knife. Niel showed up and fought with Darke, when lightning 
struck and the lights went out. A bolt of lightning lit up the office 
again, burning a permanent picture into her mind.

Talk about after the incident. Ema wasn’t able to remember the moment of 
the stabbing, so that’s the part Lana forged. Edgeworth then used the 
fake evidence to prosecute Darke, starting the rumors. After the case, 
Lana became the cold, indifferent person she is today. Talk about the 
permanent picture.

In the instant the crime occurred, Ema saw Darke looking down on Neil, 
raising his knife. After that she passed out, and woke up in Lana’s 
arms. She couldn’t bring herself to testify about that incident, so she 
drew a picture, but it didn’t help. Once it was over, she decided to be 
a scientific investigator so Lana wouldn’t have to falsify evidence.

There’s still something bothering Phoenix, though. Talk about something 
puzzling. Why would a serial killer come running into Lana’s office, 
chased by a prosecutor? Darke had been taken in for questioning that 
day, and tried to run away halfway through the interview. He ran to 
Lana’s office because it was right across from the elevator.

Wait a minute. A chief prosecutor, working across from the elevator? Ema 
says that two years ago, Lana was a detective. After the SL-9 incident, 
she was transferred to the prosecutor’s office. Phoenix wants to talk to 
Lana about this, so go to the detention center.


Phoenix cuts right to the point and asks Lana for details about her 
change of jobs. Talk about today’s trial. Lana says it’s not surprising 
that evidence was stolen, and that everything is connected to SL-9. That 
trial wasn’t fair, even though Ema always thought Lana would stick to 
the truth.

The fact is, there was no murder in the evidence room, and if what Angel 
Starr said is true, Lana’s the killer. Talk about Detective Lana Skye. 
She was an amazing detective two years ago, cracking cases with Chief 
Gant, who then worked crime scenes. They solved crimes before the cops 
could even file the paperwork.

Lana always wanted to be a prosecutor, and became a detective to gain 
crime-scene experience. Gant helped clear up the SL-9 incident, after 
which he became Chief of Police and arranged Lana’s transfer. Talk about 
the Darke investigation.

Two years ago she was second-in-command of the SL-9 investigation, 
working under Chief Gant. The two of them shared an office an led a team 
of detectives, including Bruce Goodman, Jake Marshall and Angel Starr. 
They were sure Darke was the killer, so they asked him to come in for 

That was when he escaped and tried to kill Ema. Lana was the first one 
on the scene, so talk about first one at scene. Gant and Neil were 
questioning Darke when he panicked and fled to the office shared by Gant 
and Lana. When Lana arrived, she found three bodies and blood. Two of 
them, Darke and Ema, were unconsious, and Neil was dead.

She panicked, carried Lana out of the room, and placed Darke under 
arrest. Everyboydy in that incident is also in this one, and no way is 
that a coincidence. Marshall went to great lengths because he didn’t 
agree with the resolution. Everybody in the case is still living with 
it. Phoenix decides to go investigate the Chief’s office, the crime 
scene, so go to the police department entrance.


Standing around here, you’ll find Jake Marshall. He’s off to an 
interrogation, and says you can’t go into the evidence room today. 
Phoenix presses Marshall to tell him exactly what happened. Talk about 
the Darke trial. Something was fishy from the beginning; the facts and 
evidence were inconsistent.

For example, that broken SWITCHBLADE KNIFE, the murder weapon. The blade 
didn’t match the wound, so the knife could well have not been the murder 
weapon. Many of the facts were probably covered with forged evidence. 
Talk about Prosecutor (Neil) Marshall. He was one of the best in his 

(Jake) Marshall had just become a detective, and was working with his 
brother on the Darke case, when Neil was killed. He had just won King of 
Prosecutors that day--the day of the evidence transferal, when there was 
a bad thunderstorm.

Somebody must have tried to stop him, because Goodman was dead and the 
locker was empty. Talk about scars to learn that every detective in the 
case was “taken care of” except one. Angel Starr was fired and Marshall 
was demoted. Only Goodman was left so as not to seem suspicious.

Marshall believes that Damon Gant and Lana Skye were the ones behind the 
purge. Talk about Gant & Skye. They were the most famous detectives on 
the force, and the SL-9 incident was a big step for them both. Gant 
became Chief of Police while Lana became Chief Prosecutor. Since that 
she was never the same.

Marshall doesn’t know her secret, so that’s his whole story. He learned 
in court that Edgeworth wasn’t his enemy: he used false evidence, but 
somebody else gave it to him without his knowing. That was Damon Gant. 
Marshall leaves, but you now have a few things to talk to Gant about. Go 
to the criminal affairs department.


Everybody’s in a meeting; Lana’s statements have caused total chaos. The 
chief detective gives you “permission” to talk to Gant in his office, so 
go to the Chief’s office.


Ema tries to play the pipe organ and alerts Gant to your presence. Gant 
tells you to look at a picture on the wall. It’s of him, Neil, and Lana, 
on the day Neil won King of Prosecutors. Something doesn’t seem right 
with the picture. The GANT TEAM PICTURE is added to the court record. 
Gant refuses to let you investigate, so you end up outside at the Police 
Department entrance.


Obviously, there was something in the office that Gant didn’t want you 
to see, so of course you want to see it. Go inside to the Criminal 
Affairs Department.


Gumshoe is taking a break from being coffee boy at the meeting. He asks 
if you’ve seen Edgeworth, who apparently is under fire from both 
prosecutors and police. It’s because of the false SL-9 evidence. Talk to 
Gumshoe about Edgeworth’s crisis.

Edgeworth didn’t know the evidence was forged but he’s responsible for 
it anyway under prosecuting law. Also, the rumors are getting to him now 
that he’s been accused of lawbreaking. Gumshoe’s afraid that Edgeworth 
might crack under pressure.

Talk about the SL-9 incident. The only evidence Darke ever left was 
during the murder of Neil Marshall. Gumshoe doesn’t actually remember 
the fatal error, though...maybe the murder weapon would help. Talk about 
Darke’s crimes.

Darke was an ordinary businessman. However, one day he hit someone with 
his car. He killed somebody who saw that, killed another kid that saw 
that crime, killed someone who saw him burying the bodies, and killed 
one other victim before turning himself in.

That was when he fled questioning, attacked Ema, and killed Neil. For 
more information, present the SWITCHBLADE KNIFE. Suddenly, Gumshoe 
remembers Darke’s incriminating evidence. Talk about the murder weapon. 
The knife belonged to Joe Darke.

The blade is broken, and the broken tip was inside Neil’s wound. It 
matched Darke’s knife. NEIL’S AUTOPSY REPORT is added to the court 
record, and the SWITCHBLADE KNIFE is updated. Phoenix then asks Gumshoe 
for permission to get into Gant’s office/crime scene.

Gumshoe’s ID can unlock the door, but he’d be fired. There might be 
something that can change his mind, though. However, you don’t have it 
now, so go to the High Prosecutor’s office via the police department 
entrance and underground parking lot.


Edgeworth is writing something when you arrive but quickly throws it on 
the floor. Examine the wad of paper under the desk. You’ll distract 
Edgeworth while Ema grabs the paper, only to find that it’s a LETTER OF 
RESIGNATION. Edgeworth says he’s tired of the job, and you keep the 
LETTER OF RESIGNATION for the court record.

Talk to Edgeworth about forged evidence. He admits to using false 
evidence for a guilty verdict. Even if he didn’t know about, he broke a 
“bond of trust” and it’s his fault. Talk about tomorrow’s trial to ask 
if he’s going to be there. The case is coming back to haunt him, as well 

Apparently, most other evidence lists are twice as long as this one. 
Edgeworth became prosecutor after Neil Marshall died, determind to use 
the evidence he was given to prove the suspect guilty. Talk about the 
day of the crime. On the day Goodman was murdered, he attended the King 
of Prosecutors ceremony, and was given the award. He was asked to take 
something back to the office by Chief Gant: that SCREWDRIVER.

Present the PROSECUTOR TROPHY. Edgeworth says it has no meaning to him 
anymore, and Ema notices something odd: the other trophy in the court 
record is different. The other trophy is not an actual trophy, rather, 
it’s the one in the GANT TEAM PICTURE. Present the GANT TEAM PICTURE to 
ask Edgeworth about the inconsistency.

The trophy Neil is holding in the picture has a broken knife on it as 
well as a broken shield. That was the official trophy used then. There’s 
a story behind it, too. Talk about the prosecutor trophy. It’s an 
ancient Chinese tale. The word “contradiction” in Chinese is written 
using characters that mean “halberd” and “shield”.

In the kingdom of Chu, an arms dealer came before the king, offering two 
items: a halberd he said could cut any armor, and a shield that could 
stop any weapon. When the king pointed out the obvious contradiction, 
the merchant was speechless. The broken sword and shield in the trophy 
represent the merchant’s items.

However, two years ago, Chief Gant took the halberd out without 
explanation, leaving Edgeworth with only a shield. The PROSECUTOR TROPHY 
is updated in the court record. The LETTER OF RESIGNATION could do 
wonders with Gumshoe, so go to the underground parking lot.


You’re going somewhere important, but Angel Starr stops you here anyway. 
She thinks you’re just dredging up the past and says that it won’t 
change anything. Talk about the Darke investigation. They trailed him 
for half a year, and Jake Marshall became obsessed after his brother 
died. This made Lana more desperate too.

The SL-9 team was lead by the legendary duo of Lana and Gant. Talk about 
after case closed. They were shocked about how it turned out. Evidence 
they’d found would vanish, and false evidence would appear. After the 
case, all of them but Goodman were fired without explanation. Angel 
believes that Lana was being used.

Talk about the legendary duo. Gant and Skye were the best detectives on 
the force, although even then Gant may have forged evidence. Everybody 
looked up to Lana, and she was very concerned with Marshall’s loss. 
After that, however, she turned cold.

Talk about being “used”. Angel thinks that Gant put Lana in the Chief 
Prosecutor’s position to control the prosecutor’s office. She doesn’t 
know how Lana was controlled, but says there must be a reason for her to 
be acting so cold.

Go to the criminal affairs department via the entrance.


Gumshoe still won’t let you in Gant’s office, so let’s change that. 
Shock him by presenting the LETTER OF RESIGNATION. The detectives 
betrayed Edgeworth by giving him faulty evidence, and now he’s taking 
the rap. Gumshoe gives you his ID to investigate Gant’s office; he 
barely has a career anymore anyway.

GUMSHOE’S ID replaced the LETTER OF RESIGNATION in the court record. Go 
to the Chief’s office.


Gumshoe follows you inside, knowing he’ll be fired if anyone sees you. 
Talk about the chief’s office. The other desk belonged to Lana, and that 
was where Ema was waiting two years ago. Nobody uses it now, as Gant has 
a strict policy of preserving the crime scene.

Talk about Chief Gant. After meandering for a while, Gumshoe asks if you 
think he’s a suspect. Phoenix ignores the question, though he obviously 
does. Now it’s time to start investigating. First off, examine the safe 
next to Gant’s desk.

A code needs to be entered into the safe, so select to input the number. 
Now, think over what you know. 1: Gant is a suspect. 2: Your best lead 
is the first murder in the evidence room. 3: Whoever committed that 
crime had the ID number 7777777. 4: They were also an executive officer.

It follows logically that Gant may have that ID number, and that it 
might be his safe number as well. Input 7777777 and the safe opens. 
This, of course, means that Gant has that number and entered the 
evidence room that day. Examine the safe again.

Inside you’ll find two odd pieces of paraphernalia: a shard from a 
broken vase, and a piece of leather bearing a handprint. They might be 
evidence, but Gumshoe won’t let you take them unless you can prove 
they’re relevant.

Another mysterious thing about this office is the paper Gant was reading 
when you entered the first time. Examine the desk to look for it. It’s a 
list of evidence, from the SL-9 incident, the same one Edgeworth 
mentioned that’s half as long as it should be.

Gant was hiding some SL-9 secrets! The EVIDENCE LIST is added to the 
court record. Now, to prove the relevency of the safe’s contents. That 
piece of a vace looks remarkably similar to that UNSTABLE JAR from the 
evidence room. Present the UNSTABLE JAR to see if it fits.

Select to assemble the fragment, and you’ll be back on that same screen 
from the last sequence. Rotate the fragment counterclockwise once and 
combine. It fits, proving that Gant was knowingly hiding evidence! The 
piece also has a line of blood on it.

The UNSTABLE JAR is updated in the court record. Next, it’s time to use 
Ema’s scientific expertise on the crime scene. Move left and select to 
spray the LUMINOL TESTING FLUID. Spray behind Lana’s desk to find a pool 
of blood. Two years ago, Neil Marshall was killed here.

Now, check the EVIDENCE LIST and rotate it to the other side. You’ll see 
a picture on the back of a man preparing to stab another man. Examine 
it--looks a lot like the SL-9 stabbing. Examine the Gant team picture 
(the one in the office, not the one in the court record).

After winning the award, Neil took a photo with Gant and Lana, then went 
to question Darke. He was stabbed a few hours later. Now, it’d be a good 
idea to fingerprint that piece of cloth from the safe, so present the 

Select the middle finger, cover the screen with powder and blow into the 
microphone. You get a clear print, and it looks most like...Ema’s! Match 
the prints to Ema Skye. Phoenix lies and says there aren’t clear prints. 
Gumshoe takes him aside.

Neither of them know how to explain Ema’s prints, but they decide to 
keep it hidden. The STRIP OF CLOTH is added to the court record. 
Suddenly, Gant shows up! Bus-ted! He tells you all to leave, and says 
that Gumshoe is fired.

He wants to talk to Ema, though, so after parting ways with Gumshoe, 
Phoenix goes to talk to Lana at the detention center.


Lana claims to have told Phoenix everything she can, however, that’s 
bullcrap, as she basically hasn’t told you anything...except that she 
murdered Detective Goodman. Talk to her about keeping quiet. Phoenix 
says it’s not that Lana won’t tell the truth, it’s that she can’t.

This is because she’s afraid of somebody. Lana asks who it is she’s so 
frightened of. Of course, due to what Angel said and everything else 
you’ve found, it could only be Damon Gant. Present Gant, then talk about 
Damon Gant. Phoenix asks why he would hide his crimes.

Lana and Edgeworth are being punished for Gant’s forging of evidence. 
Edgeworth didn’t know about the falsifications, so only Lana and Gant 
could have touched the evidence. Lana wants you to prove that Gant 
falsified evidence.

The proof is that there was half as much evidence as there should have 
been, and that Gant had SL-9 evidence in his safe. Present either the 
defeat. She can’t disobey the chief’s orders, even if it means being 
found guilty for murder.

Three days ago, she had no choice but to follow orders and participate 
in Goodman’s murder. Talk about “orders”. That day, Lana was ordered by 
Gant to dispose of Bruce Goodman’s body. When she opened the trunk, she 
found Darke’s SWITCHBLADE KNIFE in Goodman’s body. She took it out and 
stabbed his corpse with EDGEWORTH’S KNIFE.

In the process, she cut her hand, got blood on Goodman’s shoe, and was 
seen by Angel Starr. Talk about Darke’s knife, and Lana says she hid the 
knife to prevent the reopening of SL-9. She then called Ema to tell her 
what had happened.

After getting the orders, she called Jake Marshall to help her hide 
Goodman’s death. However, he had his own ideas and tried to steal the 
evidence. Tomorrow’s trial is now your only chance to get to the bottom 
of this, so save your game and prepare.

(Wait a minute. There’s only one black guy in the game, and he’s a cold-
hearted, conniving, manipulative killer? Something about that seems a 
little racist.)

TRIAL 3                                                      (5ASHEST3)

“No matter how tragic the truth may be, it would be an even greater 
tragedy to avert one’s eyes from it.”-Miles Edgeworth

“We’re not defenders of justice. We’re merely keepers of the law.”-Damon 

Neither Lana nor Ema can be found today, but Edgeworth appears. He’s 
figured out 7777777 as well, and says that if Gant hasn’t been charged 
with anything, no doubt remains. Phoenix knows Lana’s hiding something, 
and has to drag it out of her.

Here’s the way it stands: this trial will concern the events of SL-9. 
Lana was forced to hide Goodman’s murder by Gant, who is holding 
blackmail over her head. If you can use the SL-9 incident to prove that 
Gant has something on Lana, you can prove him guilty.

Chief Gant appears at the beginning of the trial with a proposal: Lana 
has asked to speak directly to the court. She makes a request for an 
immediate end to the trial, and confesses again (yawn). Phoenix objects 
and says that the defence does not acknowledge the plea. And what does 
the bitch do? She fires him.

The judge is a bout to hand down a verdict when Edgeworth saves your ass 
yet again, saying that a ruling at this point would be premature as the 
prosecution has not made a complete case. He says that the sudden 
confession means that a deal was struck as a cover-up. He then decides 
to call Ema Skye as a witness.

Edgeworth asks her to testify about what happened two years ago.


Ema was waiting in her sister’s office that day. A man came running in 
and took her hostage. Neil Marshall rescued her, but she’ll never forget 
what she saw that instant! The man raised up his knife, and...and 
stabbed Mr. Marshall in the chest...!


Start by pressing the fourth statement, in which Ema says she’ll never 
forget what she saw. Ema gives a more detailed account: Mr. Marshall 
jumped on Darke, then the lights went out. The lightning flashed on and 
burned an image in her mind. She told the head detective, Bruce Goodman, 
about what she saw that instant.

This is interesting, so select to hear more. The words wouldn’t come out 
when they talked, so she drew a picture. Ask about the picture. It’s 
important, but Edgeworth didn’t get it on his evidence list. Ema adds a 
statement to the testimony, saying she drew a picture, but it seems to 
have been lost.

Wait a minute! You have that picture! Examine the EVIDENCE LIST and 
rotate it to the back, then examine the picture you see there. It’s 
exactly the image Ema saw during that flash of lightning--on the back of 
the SL-9 evidence list. It’s safe to assume that this is the picture Ema 
drew for Detective Goodman.

Present the EVIDENCE LIST at the new statement (about the picture) to 
prove to Edgeworth that it exists. Ema says it is the picture, and 
Edgeworth says that only the prosecutor in charge of the case should 
have that list. The two lists are different, so Edgeworth’s mysteriously 
short list must have been incomplete!

The two lists fit together. Only half the SL-9 evidence reached 
Edgeworth! Also, if the lists fit together, then more of the drawing 
might be on the back of the other list! There is something on the back 
of Edgeworth’s list. It’s the Blue Badger!

Maybe the head detective used this as his blueprint. The EVIDENCE LIST 
is updated in the court record. Ema agrees to testify about the picture, 
although she’s acting kind of strangely.


This is the picture Ema drew two years ago. The flash of lightning was 
so bright all she could see were shadows. After that, she fainted. The 
picture shows exactly what she saw that instant!


Well, incredibly confident statements such as the last one (“exactly 
what I saw”) are always subject, so press that one. Ema is sure this is 
the exact scene she saw, not influenced by any detectives. However, 
there is clearly a contradiction.

To find it, check the picture again (you don’t have to go to the court 
record, just go to statement four). Look closely at the knife that the 
attacker, presumably Joe Darke, is holding. Its tip is square, not 
pointy, meaning that the knife was broken.

In NEIL’S AUTOPSY REPORT, however, it says that the tip of the knife was 
found in the wound, meaning that the knife could only have broken after 
Neil was stabbed. Present NEIL’S AUTOPSY REPORT at the final statement 
to bring up this contradiction.

You now have to show the contradiction in the photo. The problem is the 
knife, broken before it should be. Highlight the knife in the crosshairs 
and click present. If Neil was stabbed only once, as the report states, 
the knife could not yet have broken!

The knife couldn’t have broken beforehand, either, because then the tip 
wouldn’t have wound up in the wound. Probably, then, this knife tip was 
the forged piece of evidence! Phoenix also believes that there is a lie 
somewhere in the events of the day.

Ema, however, seems sure that the man was holding a broken knife. If 
that’s true, the SWITCHBLADE KNIFE wasn’t the murder weapon. There might 
have been another knife, so select that there is another one. You now 
have to find the real murder weapon.

Think over the events of Neil’s last day. He received the trophy, 
questioned Darke, then went to save Ema and was killed. Only one of 
those events involves his obtaining a knife. Remember that the old 
design of the prosecutor’s trophy including a halberd?

The old trophy can be seen in the GANT TEAM PICTURE. Neil is holding a 
trophy with a broken knife on it! The murder weapon was the broken knife 
from the trophy! Present the GANT TEAM PICTURE. When Neil fought Darke, 
the broken knife was the only weapon he had.

Edgeworth now points out that if the murder weapon had belonged to the 
victim, the main raising the knife would not have been Joe Darke, but 
Neil Marshall! However, Neil was the one who died! Suddenly, Ema 
remembers something, and asks for the EVIDENCE LIST.

She is sure that it was her, not the head detective, that drew the 
picture of the Blue Badger. The list wasn’t torn in half when the 
picture was drawn; in fact, the two pictures go together.

Ema now testifies again about this.


When Ema saw that man raise his knife, she panicked, and rushed toward 
both of them. She thinks she...she knocked away the man with the knife. 
Just then there was another flash of lightning, and that’s when she 
saw...the Blue Badger! He wasn’t in the room, but she’s sure she saw his 

This is very odd, considering that the Blue Badger didn’t exist two 
years ago. Suddenly, Lana appears, telling you to stop the examination. 
Edgeworth makes her shut up and she is detained, allowing Phoenix to 


Start off by pressing the final statement, when Ema says she saw his 
shadow. She didn’t actually see his face, but what’s important is what 
the shadow really was. Something else caused her to think of the Blue 
Badger. Select that you just might know.

Something in this very courtroom is the “Blue Badger” that Ema saw, so 
you’ll have to present it. Hmm...look at the UNSTABLE JAR. If you 
rotated it right, it might look a bit like the Blue Badger’s head. 
Present the UNSTABLE JAR.

Now, with that wonderful Blue Badger theme in the background, you are 
faced with the task of rotating the jar so it looks like the Blue 
Badger. First, use either of the arrows to rotate the jar 180 degrees, 
so the top is on the bottom.

Next, slowly scroll up on the right-hand dial until you see the Blue 
Badger. Once you have the resemblance, present it. It’s shadow looks 
exactly like the Blue Badger! Edgeworth asks what you point is, and what 
is different now that you know about the jar.

The only thing this could possibly change is the location, so that’s the 
answer. The jar is in Damon Gant’s office, but the body was found by 
Lana Skye’s desk. The stuggle between Darke and Neil happened not in 
Lana’s office, but in Gant’s!

Why would the murderer move the body between the two offices? There 
would have to be a reason for him to go to the trouble. In Ema’s 
testimony, she said that she knocked away the man with the knife. The 
impact of the man against the wall caused the jar to shatter.

If a man was pushed toward that wall, he would have hit the knife, 
sticking out of the suit of armor! And if the man had a broken knife, it 
would have been Neil Marshall! The only thing that could have happened 

That Ema accidentally pushed Neil onto the sword! Given the 
circumstances, it had to have happened this way. Lana jumps in again, 
saying that Darke obviously killed Neil and that you can’t accuse Ema. 
Edgeworth says she moved the body so nobody would know what Ema did.

However, you have no evidence, and anyone who could testify is dead. The 
only possibility, then, is that the victim left a message. Neil didn’t 
die instantly, instead, he may have left the name of his killer. Select 
that the killer’s name is in the evidence. Among the SL-9 evidence, 
there is only one likely candidate.

It was there, at the scene of the crime. A piece of it bearing blood 
lines resembling writing was hidden. That’s right, present the UNSTABLE 
JAR. A message is on the surface of the jar, made of dots that were once 
lines. You now have to connect the dots to form the murderer’s name. 
It’s not that hard, but:

Connect the two dots farthest to the left, then connect them to the dots 
right next to them. Connect the dots on the next shape to form a 
reflection of the line that was there. Finally, connect all the 
remaining dots on the left. Once you have an E, an M and an A, present.

She didn’t mean to do it, but in the end, Neil Marshall’s killer was Ema 
Skye. Damon Gant appears to brighten everybody’s day, saying that now 
Edgeworth has used forged evidence to prove an innocent man’s guilt. 
Phoenix objects: Joe Darke was a serial killer, and he did kill five 
other people, so he is in no way innocent.

However, sentencing a man to death is still something that can’t be done 
on false evidence. Basically, Edgeworth is f***ed. The judge declares a 
recess, so you get a chance to save. Gumshoe appears with a book for you 
from Lana, it’s about evidence law. She says you’ll need it to take 
“HIM” on.

EVIDENCE LAW is added to the court record. Read it and remember the two 
rules. Gumshoe believes the trial is over now that Edgeworth and Ema are 
ruined, but Lana didn’t kill Goodman (remember that?). She stuck a knife 
in his dead body to cover up Gant’s actions. The real killer is Damon 
Gant...let’s kick his ass!

With court back in session, the judge is afraid that Edgeworth might 
have manipulated witnesses. Edgeworth offers a solution: for the rest of 
the trial, Phoenix will call all witnesses. You want to bring out the 
real murderer, who of course is Dick Gumshoe. No, really, it’s pretty 
obvious: call Damon Gant.

Phoenix makes it clear that they want to figure out Gant’s role in the 
murder, and Gant says that he has “weapons” at his disposal. For 
example, he can refuse to testify, although this is risky, according to 
Edgeworth. Gant, however, will testify.


As Gant recalls, he and Neil were questioning Darke that day. To make a 
long story short, they slipped up. That power outage didn’t help either. 
When he went to his office, he found Lana there. Apparently she had 
already...“arranged” the crime scene. As you can see, he had nothing to 
do with the “forgery”.


You have one clear goal here: prove that Gant was involved in the 
rearranging of the crime scene. Press the fourth statement first, about 
Lana arranging the scene. Phoenix asks how Gant knows it had already 
been done. Gant says the body was already by Lana’s desk, even though 
the suit of armor had stabbed the prosecutor.

Press the fifth statement, in which Gant says he had nothing to do with 
the forgery. The forgery had taken place before Gant entered the office. 
There is, however, evidence that ties him to the forgery! Remember how 
you found part of the crime scene jar? IN GANT’S SAFE? He willingly hid 

Exposing this will require Phoenix to admit that he stole things out of 
the Chief of Police’s safe, but contradictions take precedence over all. 
At the final statement, present the UNSTABLE JAR. Several pieces of 
evidence were found in Gant’s office, including the UNSTABLE JAR, 

These concealed pieces of SL-9 evidence are proof that Gant took part in 
the forgery! However, Gant says you still could have forged the 
evidence. Even Gumshoe, who was there, is not exempt. Gant testifies 
about the existence of the evidence in his office.


Let’s see, what was it now? A jar fragment...and a list? For all Gant 
knows, you could have planted them in his office. Anyway, you can’t 
prove “when” those pieces of evidence were discovered. If they were 
found after Darke was convicted, then they’re worthless. There’s no 
reason he’d participate in a forgery. Rearranging the crime scene 
wouldn’t help him out in any way.


The last statement is at issue. This situation would have benefitted 
him: Lana finds that Ema killed Neil. Gant offers help forging the crime 
scene, and in exchange, Lana becomes his pawn in the prosecutor’s 
office. Also, the case’s resolution makes Gant Chief of Police. Press 
the last statement (“wouldn’t help me out”).

Phoenix says it would help him out: he’d become Chief of Police! Gant 
says he was already in line to become Chief before the incident. The 
only other possible motive is that he did it for someone else (Lana). 
Gant adds a statement, saying that he wouldn’t be an accomplice if there 
was nothing in it for him.

Press the new statement. Gant still refuses that he helped someone out, 
so select to point out his accomplice. Phoenix says that Gant would help 
someone out if it did benefit him. The person who he helped forge 
evidence Lana Skye.

If Ema had fallen victim to unlucky circumstances, Lana would want to 
help her out. If she asked Gant to help, he would have profit as an 
incentive. When Lana was Chief Prosecutor, Gant would be able to use her 
as a puppet, holding over her head the threat of revealing that the 
evidence was forged.

Gant asks for proof of this, and says that Lana has not testified to 
this effect. Phoenix and Edgeworth know, however, that Gant killed 
Goodman, and is making Lana take the rap. You will have to present 
evidence that ties Gant to the murder of Goodman.

The evidence relates to the evidence room. Gant’s ID is 7777777, the 
exact ID shown at the time when Goodman entered with the murderer. 
Present the ID CARD RECORD. Gant says you can’t prove it’s his, but of 
course it’s the number that opens his safe!

Edgeworth demands an explanation. Gant did go to the evidence room, but 
he went alone; he hadn’t seen Goodman in days. However, you can prove he 
did! You’ll now have to prove that Gant met Goodman. Well...Goodman was 
in the evidence room. He had lost his ID card. He came in with Gant, so 
it’s logical to believe that Gant let him in.

Present GOODMAN’S LOST ITEM REPORT. There was other no way Goodman and 
the murderer could have entered the evidence room. If Gant had lent 
Goodman his ID, it would have been on his body. Gant does that awesome 
screaming thing they always do when you prove them guilty. YES!

The murder was likely committed impulsively, otherwise it wouldn’t have 
been at the police department. After the murder, he contacted Lana Skye 
to dispose of the victim’s body. However, since neither he nor Lana left 
their respective offices, how did he move the body?

You’ll have to present proof. Remember how Edgeworth said that Gant told 
him to move a piece of evidence? Gant used Edgeworth to move the body! 
He called Edgeworth to the Police Department to move a piece of 
evidence. That evidence was the SCREWDRIVER, a key piece of proof in the 
AI-16 incident.

Present the SCREWDRIVER. The only reason Gant told Edgeworth to move 
evidence from a closed case was so he could use his car to get the body 
to Lana Skye so she could dispose of it. Angel Starr’s photo is not of 
the body being stuffed in the trunk, but of it being taken out!

All right! Gant’s all but guilty now! But...he’s suddenly invoking his 
right to refuse to testify! ASSHOLE! Gant says that if you had 
conclusive proof you would have presented it by now. Select that you 
have no proof yet; no sense kidding yourself.

Gant leaves, and the judge is about to penalize Phoenix when Edgeworth 
objects. There is someone who still knows the truth behind the case, and 
she hasn’t testified yet. There is no evidence, so the truth must be 
proven with testimony.

There is another witness, right in the room! Phoenix is the one calling 
witnesses today, so he must give the name. A woman who knows the truth, 
hasn’t yet testified, and is in the room: call Lana Skye. Gant returns, 
telling Lana that if she testifies, Ema will be found guilty for the 
murder of Neil Marshall.

The court then goes to recess. After a scene, save your game and return 
to the courtroom for the final chapter of this drawn-out, convoluted 
saga. Lana takes the stand and testifies.


Lana worked alongside Gant for years...there’s no truth to this 
“blackmail” theory. She fabricated the evidence two years ago all by 
herself. When she found Prosecutor Marshall’s body, she rearranged the 
crime scene. Her only motivation was to get Darke convicted. It had 
nothing to do with Ema.


You’ll want to know more about her rearranging of the crime scene, so 
press the fourth statement (“rearranged the crime scene”). Edgeworth 
asks what she found when she arrived at the crime scene. The broken 
knife from the trophy was stuck in Neil’s body.

Phoenix says this couldn’t be true as Neil died from the suit of armor, 
but Lana says he only thought that was “possible”. He didn’t actually 
find it. The other murder weapon, the SWITCHBLADE KNIFE, was on the 
floor a short distance away.

Lana is trying to cover up lies, of course. She adds a statement 
explaining what she did to rearrange the scene: she planted the tip of 
Darke’s knife in Neil’s wound, then moved the body. Press the new 
statement, and you’ll be presented with two questions to ask Lana.

Select “why did you move the body” to ask where it was before she 
arrived. It was by Gant’s desk. Lana adds another new statement saying 
that the pieces of the jar somehow threatened her plan. Press this 
statement to find out why...

The jar was already broken when she found the crime scene, and it was 
obvious that the jar broke during their struggle. Ema is sure there is a 
contradiction, though. And there is! Neil wrote Ema’s name on the jar. 
He couldn’t have done that if it was already broken!

In other words, Neil would have had to have died before the jar was 
broken. Present the UNSTABLE JAR to bring this to light. Lana will 
testify again about the jar and the blood.


Lana immediately noticed the blood traces on the jar, but it was dark in 
the room and she didn’t have time to check it out. To be safe, she wiped 
away the blood. The fragments were large, so she’s sure she got them 
all. All she could think about was wiping them clean before they were 


A very easy cross-examination. Lana says that she got all the pieces and 
wiped away all the blood, but there was one that was found in Gant’s 
safe! Present the UNSTABLE JAR, endless source of contradictions, at the 
fourth statement (“got them all”).

Lana was sure she wiped all the blood, but the piece in Gant’s safe 
still had blood on it! The only explanation is that Chief Gant got to 
the crime scene before Lana! Lana could not just have missed a piece 
because she was an ace detective.

If Gant was at the scene first, why did he hide the fact for years? 
Damon Gant arrived at the scene prior to the witness. He broke the jar 
and hid one of the pieces. This is definitely fabrication of evidence. 
The only possible explanation for what happened... that Gant fabricated the scene so that it looked like Ema was the 
culprit, Lana sought his aid, and she became his puppet! Phoenix 
suddenly realizes they might still be in Gant’s trap, and thinks that 
Ema’s murder of Neil may also be a lie.

He asks Lana to testify one more time about what she really saw.


When Lana arrived, she found Mr. Marshall’s body impaled on that suit of 
armor’s sword. Ema and Darke were lying unconscious on the floor nearby. 
When Lana saw what happened, she thought Ema...did it. That’s why she 
erased all the evidence that linked her to the murder. She had Chief 
Gant help her remove the body from the sword and carry it...but if it 
all really was a fabrication, Ema might be innocent!


This is it! The FINAL cross-examination in the game! If this were an 
action game or an RPG, this is where I would write FINAL BOSS. There is 
no actual cross-examination, i.e. you don’t cycle through statements, 
press, or present. It’s a long sequence of proof and decision.

Edgeworth asks Lana if she has proof the body was impaled on the sword. 
Lana says she gave it to Phoenix this morning. The proof is a picture of 
the crime scene as she first saw it. First, you’ve got to find that 
picture! Think! What did Lana give you this morning?

She gave you a book on EVIDENCE LAW. Examine the book and rotate around 
to the back cover. Examine the back cover just below the logo. This will 
open it, and inside is a picture! It shows Neil Marshall, impaled on the 
sword, as nobody but Lana saw him. LANA’S PICTURE is added to the court 

The piece cut from Neil’s vest may be the STRIP OF CLOTH from Gant’s 
safe, the one with Ema’s fingerprints on it. That must mean she is the 
real murderer...or does it? A normal cross-examination is about to begin 
when Gant shows up to stop it.

He says he’d like to speak in his defence, but Edgeworth says that by 
refusing to testify, he’s forfeited that right. Gant isn’t worried, as 
he says he can still present evidence. According to Gant, Phoenix has a 
decisive piece of evidence that can prove who knocked over Neil.

If you present that now, though, Ema will be proven guilty! If you 
withhold the evidence, you’ll be punished by the inquiry board! What do 
you do? DO NOT present the evidence or Lana will be guilty 
automatically. Instead, say that you cannot show evidence.

Gant knows you took the conclusive evidence out of his safe, but Phoenix 
says he doesn’t know what Gant is talking about. Gant thinks you’re 
holding it because you know whose fingerprints are on it. He then admits 
that he cut off the cloth and put it in his safe.

Gant then says what really happened. He arrived at the crime scene 
first, and it occurred to him that he could use the situation to control 
Lana. Lana asked for help, and Gant told her how to incriminate Darke. 
Then, Edgeworth used that fabricated evidence to prove that Joe Darke 
was guilty.

Gant his the evidence in his safe for insurance. However, Edgeworth says 
that if Gant fabricated everything else, who says he didn’t fabricate 
the blood as well? That’s why Gant kept the STRIP OF CLOTH, which he 
demands that Phoenix show.

The time has come, so select to show evidence. Present the STRIP OF 
CLOTH. On the day of the crime, Gant cut that cloth fom the victim’s 
vest. Edgeworth knows it is conclusive and asks for analysis, but Gant 
says Phoenix already knows whose prints are on there.

You know who the prints belog to, so present Ema Skye. This proves that 
Ema did it, and since Phoenix concealed evidece, he’ll be fired. 
However, first, he has to clear up who really did it! The cloth proves 
who killed Neil! You’ll have to present contradicting evidence.

Check LANA’S PICTURE again, specifically the part where Neil’s jacket 
has been cut away. There’s blood on the undershirt! If Gant had cut the 
cloth after Neil died, the shirt would be clean, and the cloth would be 
covered in blood! Present LANA’S PICTURE!

The prints prove that Ema pushed Neil, but there is no proof that he was 
impaled on the sword! That means that whoever arrived first picked up 
the prosecutor’s unconscious body and impaled it on the sword! He then 
broke the jar to leave a clue, and arranged the scene to make it look 
like Ema had done it!

That person was Gant, who moments ago admitted that he cut away the 
cloth personally before Lana arrived! He has been proven to be the 
murderer in both the Goodman killing and the SL-9 incident! Gant 
objects, saying he refutes Phoenix’s allegations. What the hell?

He says that the piece of cloth is illegal evidence as Phoenix concealed 
it, and thus, it cannot be used to prove him guilty! When asked, say 
that you did not illegaly conceal the piece of cloth! You will have to 
present close to victory!

Think now! What do you have that discusses legal and illegal evidence? 
What do you have that would prove that you couldn’t present the STRIP OF 
CLOTH at that time? Present EVIDENCE LAW and watch the end of Damon Gant 
unfold at last.

Rule 1: no evidence shall be shown without approval of the police 
department. Since the STRIP OF CLOTH was stolen from Gant’s safe, it of 
course was not approved. Rule 2: unregistered evidence must be relevant. 
At the beginning of the trial, before LANA’S PICTURE was shown, the 
piece of cloth was irrelevant cloth!

Gant laughs and claps endlessly, and then explains his motive for the 
Goodman murder. For two years, Jake Marshall had been trying to get 
something on Gant, recruiting Angel Starr and Bruce Goodman to 
reinvestigate the case. Goodman turned him down, so Marshall went to 
steal the evidence himself.

Goodman came to Gant later that day to file a lost item report. The two 
went to the evidence room, where Goodman spoke out, saying that there 
were too many unanswered questions. Gant found the knife and stabbed 
Goodman to prevent himself from being found out in SL-9.

Gant was so busy mopping up the blood that he didn’t notice the bloody 
handprint on Gumshoe’s locker. He then put the body in Edgeworth’s car, 
after taking all the SL-9 evidence. Gant cordially says goodbye, and 
Lana appears. Phoenix explains that Ema never hurt anyone, and that Gant 
betrayed her the whole time.

Lana says she will recount everything she did for the past two years. 
She then thanks Phoenix and actually smiles. The judge says that she 
will be put on trial for evidence fabrication later, then regarding 
murder, declares her NOT GUILTY!!!

“No one can change the past. The only thing we can do is strive to make 
up for our mistakes. Why must we make up for out mistakes, you ask? 
Because in so doing...we can find out way back to our path. And once 
we’ve found our path, we can move on from our past mistakes toward a 
brighter future.”-Phoenix Wright

Enjoy the nice ending cutscene, including the above quote which possibly 
defines Phoenix’s character. Edgeworth is still sulking, believing that 
he can’t fight crime alone. Lana says he wasn’t alone, that he was 
working with Phoenix and that neither of them could have figured it out 
on their own.

You’ll now have to present some evidence. Remember the picture that Ema 
drew? How Phoenix and Edgeworth each had one half of it? Present the 
EVIDENCE LIST on which the picture was drawn. Enjoy the remainder of the 
final scene, including one last chance to shout “objection!” through the 

And that’s it! With the completion of Rise From the Ashes, you have 
successfully finished Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney, a thoroughly awesome 
game. Congratulations!

Okay, that last case took about a month to write. It’s late, and I’m 
going to bed. Good night.
