Murdered Soul Suspect Storyline
In the Murdered Soul Suspect, you play the role of detective Ronan O’ Connor hunting for Bell Killer, a serial killer in Salem, Massachusetts. During the hunt, Bell Killer throws detective Ronan O’ Connor out of a window and shoots him to death.
While in the spirit world, detective Ronan meets his dead wife Julia, who commands him to bring Bell Killer to justice before they unite. This means that Ronan has no option but to accomplish the mission if he is to reunite with his wife.
As a ghost, Ronan returns to Salem and starts hunting for the serial killer. Ronan starts his mission by searching for his missing mother, Cassandra. He heads to a local church where he meets Joy, a girl who witnessed the detective’s brutal murder. Ronan asks Joy for help, but the young woman turns down Ronan’s request.
However, Joy changes her mind after Ronan’s ghost saves her from police custody where she was held for petty offenses like burglary. After the rescue, the duo moves to Salem graveyard to investigate Sophia, the ghost of a young girl who was drowned by a Bell Killer.
Their search for Cassandra leads them to a mental hospital, where they meet Iris, a victim who was nearly murdered by the Bell Killer. While in the mental hospital, they meet Rose, Iris’ sister ghost who was burnt to death by the serial killer.
After their investigation at the hospital, Rose, Joy, and Iris return to the local church, while Ronan proceeds to Salem Museum for further investigations about the Bell Killer. In the museum, Ronan gets some leads that the serial killer could be Baxter, one of his fellow cop.
At the church, Ben Killer attacks and murders Iris and other people who came his way. Fortunately, Joy survives the attack, but she is rearrested.
After the attack, detective Ronan’s ghost goes to the church for an investigation, where he discovers that Rex, his brother in- law was the Abigail possessed Bell Killer.

Ronan expels Abigail from the mortal world and ends the Bell killings.
