Guide The Outer Worlds: Murder on Eridanos - who is to blame for the murder

 A guide dedicated to a detailed analysis of the investigation into the murder of Elena Alkionskaya: find out who to point to during the quest "Unfinished Accusation"

During the passage of the storyline of The Outer Worlds: Murder on Eridanos, you will be able to complete several tasks related to the interrogation of suspects. Sooner or later, the mission "Unfinished Accusation" is activated. You can immediately launch it, ignoring a number of other tasks, and blame any character. But this is not interesting, is it?

Complete all other story missions, then go up to the Grand Colonial Penthouse and take a look at the Investigation Board hanging in the room with Felix. Here you can see all the information that is known about the suspects.

Be sure to study all the characters so that your character can make an informed choice. First, you need to chat with Bertie Black Hole. Former boyfriend of Elena, a person with an ambiguous character. Perhaps he pounced on Elena in a fit of rage and killed the girl, which was due to the breakdown of their relationship. But you end up with a lot of inconsistencies. Seems like Bertie loved Elena too much so he couldn't hurt her.

Spencer Woolrich - Elena's partner - is another suspect on the list. As easy as it is to accuse Spencer of murder, you won't be able to find 100% evidence. Yes, he tried to poison her, but only to make her skip lunch. This was not an attempt to take the life of Helen of Alcyon.

Cedric Kinkannon, the leader of SLIZ, had far more reason to save Elena than to kill the girl. Finally, the Profit Seer herself confesses that she killed Elena. But she is not a killer either, because Elena simply fainted in the desert, that is, she died later.

None of the suspects on the Investigation Board killed Elena. Call Ludovico through the terminal and explore all the options. You can blame:

  • Bertie Black Hole
  • Spencer Woolrich
  • The Seer of Profits
  • Cedric Kinkannon
  • Ludovico

Until you complete all the tasks, you will not have a new option to blame Ludovico himself. But the final choice is yours. The real killer is Ludovico, but it doesn't matter who you blame, as the spectral vodka plant will be raided anyway, and you will have to go to the rescue of the hotel administrator. This will happen as part of the quest "Naked Guess".
