Buyer Beware Walkthrough

This is the walkthrough for the Quest Buyer Beware in L.A. Noire

Objective 1: Search Crime Scene

You will start out in front of the victim. Check the victim’s left jacket pocket to find a clue, the Bank of Arcadia payment note. Scroll down to get the
full clue. Past the victim’s body are some shell casings on the sidewalk, which were ejected from the murder weapon.

Beyond the shell casings is a trash can. Go up to it and search it to find the murder weapon: a pistol. Make sure you angle the gun properly in your hand
so that you get the full clue.

Objective 2: Question Witness

There is a witness in a red shirt on the opposite side of the sidewalk from the trash can (he is standing among other people). Go over and talk to him.

Objective 3: Question Incident Eyewitness

After talking to the man in the red shirt, make your way inside the store (a short cutscene with your partner will trigger). Inside the store, talk to the woman (the incident eyewitness). This will trigger your first interview.

Objective 6: Apprehend Edgar Kalou

The man working the store (Edgar Kalou) will start a foot chase. During this foot chase, you are given the option to aim your gun at Mr. Kalou by using the aim button. If you hold it on him long enough to fill up the entire circle, you will fire a warning shot and stop the foot chase. A good spot to end the chase with a warning shot is past the water fountain in the grassy park area (with some trees). Kalou will have to run a good distance while in this location, so you should be able to hold your aim on him.
If you can’t stop Kalou, the foot chase will eventually end by itself when Kalou gets stopped by some cars (allowing you to run up to him and apprehend
