Michael needs to find the sunken body which is located just off the coast by Fort Zancudo, near the bow of a sunken Olifantus. This body has its feet stuck in a concrete block at the bottom of the ocean. Michael will need a submarine or a scuba suit to find the body.
(The letter written by Fred Quincy to David Richards)
Michael has to read the letter on Solomon Richard's desk in his office at Richards Majestic. The office is only accessible between 21:00 and 6:00 after completing the mission Meltdown. The previous clues can be discovered by Michael at any point in the game.
The letter was written to David Richards by Fred Quincy dated August 14, 1949. The letter is Quincy’s confession to murdering Isaac, an associate. A dispute between the two led to Isaac being murdered by Quincy and his body being hidden in a mine in the hills. Quincy also confesses murdering his secretary whom he killed after he was threatened by her. The secretary is revealed to be the woman from the ocean.
Michael can now set out to find the body in the mine.
The body is located inside an abandoned mine at Great Chaparral. There is a door that needs to be destroyed with a heavy weapon to enter the mine. The body can then be found a little into the mine. Once Michael finds the body the mystery is solved and Isaac’s contact will be available to all three protagonists.
The player receives two Noir filters for snapmatic which can also be applied to the gameplay overlay. It can be activated by visiting his body or dialing Isaac’s number from any protagonist's phone.
