The Homicide Desk is a Department of the Los Angeles Police Department in L.A. Noire. Homicide is concerned with the investigation of murders and deaths linked with foul play within the city of Los Angeles.

DescriptionEdit

The Homicide desk is considered the most brutal and harrowing Department in the LAPD and is one of the primo detective assignments in the LAPD, second only to the Administrative Vice Department.

Events of L.A. NoireEdit

Cole works the desk from the Central Police Station. His partner in Homicide is veteran Detective Rusty Galloway. The captain of the department is James Donnelly.

Most of Cole's cases in this department are concerned with the brutal and horrific murders committed on young women. At first, it is not known whether one or more killers are responsible, and it is often very different to choose the correct suspect when giving the choice of charging one of two, often given that the evidence points against both suspects and the player has to use his own initiative to come to a conclusion on what has happened. Each murder case seems to have a slight twist in the storyline and in some ways can be repetitive, as Rusty says "9/10 times, it's always the husband" of the victim who committed the murder.

There are a total of six homicide cases during the game. The first 5 cases are the build up to the finale (The Quarter Moon Murders). Each case in the homicide desk contain similarities that appear to connect them as either a conspiracy or a case of copy-cat killing through media amplification of the infamous real-life Black Dahlia (B.D.) Murder of Elizabeth Short. Most cases on this desk have a similar evidence structure; lipstick, writing on the body, strangling by rope, etc.

During the final case of the homicide, Cole and Rusty find out that the one behind the murders is Garrett Mason, and finally kill him in a shootout.

TriviaEdit

  • Excluding the street crimes, Homicide is the desk with the least amount of suspects killed.
  • When first promoted to Homicide, Captain James Donnelly will say that Cole was promoted from Burglary to homicide. Burglary was going to be a desk but was cut from the game, supposedly the reason for this is because Rockstar told Team Bondi the game was "big enough".
  • The symbol used on the map to represent a Homicide crime scene is a handgun. However, no guns are ever used as murder weapons during any of the Homicide cases.
  • Homicide and Patrol are the only desks that have no DLC cases.
