Welcome to the complete L.A Noire walkthrough, where we’ll walk you through every head-scratching mystery, show you where to find all the clues, tell who’s lying and telling the truth and help you solve every grisly murder.
The next batch of cases you need to solve before you move up ranks to the Vice Desk is the Homicide Desk Cases. This is the sixth and last case: The Quarter Moon Murders.
Central Police Station
Clue- Black Dahlia letter; Clue- Shelley excerpt
You start in the bottom floor, looking at more Dahlia letters. The poem book and the Dahlia letter itself are both ultimately pointless, but the poem excerpt is what you need to familiarize yourself with. You’ll come across a series of these excerpts and each one points to the next. The first one points to Pershing Square.
Clue- Social Security card; Clue- Second excerpt
Climb the fountain and you’ll find Elizabeth Short’s social security card. Short is famous for being the Black Dahlia murder. You’ll also find the second Shelley excerpt. The “curved roof” portion is your most obvious clue- it points to a domed roof. The mountain’s frozen tears/long diamond spires thing is pretty telling as well. Go to your main map and hover over landmarks that you’ve found. Ones you haven’t found but that are relevant will now show up as question marks, so you shouldn’t have to go running around searching for them. Keep looking at the descriptions until you find something that matche
Hall of Records
You’ll find this just up and to the right of the Central Police Station on your map.
Clue- Deidre Moller’s watch; Clue- Third excerpt
Follow your partner up to the top floor and into the maintenance room. Climb the ladder and walk across the line to get onto the chandelier. You’ll have to maintain your balance on this line, though if you don’t, you’ll still catch yourself and you can just pull yourself back up. Once you’re on the chandelier, you’ll find the watch and the next excerpt. Before you can read too much of it, the chandelier will start to collapse. Swing it back and forth until Cole jumps off of it. Now you can read the excerpt. “Man’s eye and ear roofed over Sculpture and Poesy” is something you need to take literally. “Where science bedews his daedal wings” is another telling hint.
This Library is on 5th Street, between Flower and Grand.
Clue- Antonia’s Medallion; Clue- Fourth excerpt
You’ll have to do a lot of climbing to get up to the top of the library. There’s also some balancing acts involved. Once up there though, you’ll find the medallion and the next excerpt. This whole excerpt deals with death and destruction. The death part is something to remember. “Jammed in the hard, black deep” is a pretty telling clue.
Westlake Tar Pits
On your map, from the Library, keep going left. You should notice there’s a vertical line where the roads stop going diagonally and start going horizontally. The Tar Pits are at the bottom of that vertical line, below 9th Street.
Clue- Theresa Taraldsen’s shoe; Clue- Fifth excerpt
You’ll have to do some walking around in the tar to get to the island in the center. The platforms surrounded by posts are stable, but the others will sink when you step on them, so don’t take your time. When you get to the island you’ll find the shoe and the next excerpt. The main clue here is the sphere.It’s a sphere, but light and music pass right through it. The landmark is really close to you, if it helps.
L.A. County Art Museum
Just above the Westlake Tar Pits.
Clue- Celine Henry’s Garnet Ring; Clue- Sixth excerpt
You’ll have to make your way through a hedge maze for this. At the first intersection go right. Turn right at the second intersection and then immediately left. Keep going straight all the way to the center of the maze. You’ll find the ring and another excerpt. “Thrones, altars, judgement-seats, and prisons” and “sceptres, tiaras, swords, and chains” both point to the setting of the next place. “The ghosts of a no-more remembered fame” may also be helpful.
From the Museum, follow 9th Street back down into Central L.A. until you see Francisco Street. The set is here, between 8th and 9th.
Clue- Evelyn Summers’ ring; Clue- Seventh excerpt
You’ll have to get up to the throne. Use the staircase in the back. You’ll eventually jump onto a platform that falls apart and you’ll have to balance it while your partner finds a way off. When he drops the plank, move the platform forward and Cole will automatically jump off. Use the ladders to get down to the throne, where you’ll find the ring and the final excerpt. “Thorn-wounded brow” and “So thy sick throes shake not that crucifix” are two pretty obvious hints for the final location. After you put it back, the set starts to collapse, so get out of there.
Christ Crown of Thorns
From the Intolerance Set, look down and to the left and you’ll see this landmark. Enter the church and you’ll be confronted by the Black Dahlia Killer, who turns out to be Garret Mason, the temp bartender from “The Red Lipstick Murder”. He escapes when you move forward, so head into the house next to the church. You’ll find Mason’s own personal torture chamber in here. Head down into the tunnels and be careful. Mason likes to wait for you to come around a corner, then blind fire with his shotgun from the next corner. Keep chasing him. Chances are you won’t be able to take him down until he reaches the end of the tunnel or gets outside. It empties out into the cemetery, so he’ll take cover behind a tombstone. Put him down to close this and so many other cases. You’ll be promoted to Vice.
