A guide for L.A. Noire case The Golden Butterfly. Follow this guide to find all the clues, answer all the questions correctly, and get a five-star rating. This is Phelps’ second case on the Homicide Desk. After a very short introduction, it’s time to go to the crime scene to get started on the case.
When you arrive at the crime scene, there is a brief cut-scene with the captain filling you in on some details of the case. After the cut-scene walk over to the officer standing by the police barrier. He will walk you up to the crime scene, where you can talk to the coroner for more information about the murder. Then it’s time to start looking around for clues.
First, investigate the body. Look at the head, and move it to the left to show the victims neck, giving you the clue: Rope pattern. Investigate the victim’s left hand to see another piece of missing jewelry, but this doesn’t give you a clue. Investigate her other arm to find out that her watch was torn off; this will get you the clue: Missing jewelry. I’m not sure, but you might have to check both arms to get the Missing jewelry clue. Investigate her torso to find the clue: Small men’s footprint.
After you are done investigating the body, look around the crime scene for other clues. At marker B, next to the tree, you can look at the ground, but this doesn’t give you a clue. Go over to marker C to look in the victims purse. On the left side of the purse, you find the victim’s name: Deidre Moller. On the right side of the purse, you can look at her folding money, but this doesn’t give you a clue. When you are done looking at the purse, you get a response back from R. & I. letting you know the address of the victim. It’s your only lead, so head over to the Moller Residence to continue your investigation.
When you arrive at the Moller Residence, a girl will answer the door. After the cut-scene, look around the house for clues before you question the girl. In Mr. and Mrs. Moller‘s bedroom on the floor by the window, you will find the clue: Size eight work boots. On the dresser in the same room, you will find an empty watch case and an empty ring box, which will update your clue: Missing jewelry. These are all the clues for now.
Head back into the living room to talk to the girl. Here are the questions:
- Missing watch and rings >> Choose “Truth.”
- Last contact with victim >> Choose “Doubt.” This will give you the clue: Husband’s alibi.
- State of parents’ marriage >> Choose “Doubt.” This will give you the clue: Butterfly brooch.
As soon as you are done with your questions, Mr. Moller comes home and is very upset to find you there. He sits down and you start to question him:
- Footprints at crime scene >> Choose “Lie,” and use the clue Size eight work boots as evidence.
- Missing persons report >> Choose “Doubt.”
- Albi for Hugo Moller >> Choose “Lie,” and use the clue Husband’s alibi as evidence.
- History of violence >> Choose “Lie,” and use the clue Butterfly brooch as evidence.
After your questions, there is a brief cut-scene. Your next objective is to go talk to the neighbor across the street. While you are talking, she spots Moller by his incinerator. You go over to stop him burning whatever he is burning, and he tries to flee. Chase him down. If you are quick enough, you can tackle him and unlock the L.A. Noire Asphalt Jungle Achievement if you don’t have it already. After you have apprehended Moller, investigate the incinerator to find the clue: Bloody shoes. Some officers will then show up to take Moller down town.
Before leaving the Moller Residence, go use the phone by the street to trace the address for the Belmont High School. Head there to continue the case.
