  • Use the magnifying glass on the mausoleum.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • This case references the discontinued Gravedigger random event throughout, and is one of the few instances where players can visit a random event area after its removal. The player can not participate in the event however, and can only interact with the area during the court case.
  • Leo can be found outside of East Ardougne Church while still in his cell.
  • The music track Darkness in Misthalin plays at the crime scene.
  • It is possible that the unidentified fingerprint actually belongs to the player.
