Events of L.A. Noire
Because Mike refused to sell his house for Leland Monroe and the Elysian Fields Development, the Suburban Redevelopment Fund sent Mrs. Morelli and her family away on a vacation to the Catalina Islands. However, the contest, through Gulliver's Travel Agency, was fixed. While the Morelli family was away, the SRF intended to set fire to their house and burn it down, forcing the Morelli's to sell.
Monroe, along with Harlan Fontaine, sent Ira Hogeboom, while lying to him that it was a part of his post traumatic stress disorder treatment, to burn down the house. However, the Morelli's were still in the house. Mrs. Morelli and her family perished in the house fire. Ira, feeling remorseful killing the Morelli's, moved the families bodies to the living room, wanting them to be together.
