Speak to Officer Markannen

Speak to Officer Markannen and make your decision regarding the case. Note that your decision here will decide who you report to, Sergeant Yumi. If you blame Gershon, you cannot change this decision later. He's the real criminal, and this was an act of vengeance to carry out his grudge against Tahir Vala from The Well.
