The first of two crime photos that were evidence in the trial of Phoenix Wright for the murder of Shadi Smith.

Smith's murder[]

Main article: Turnabout Trump

The photo was made available to Apollo Justice during the preliminary hearing prior to the trial. During the trial proper, Prosecutor Winston Payne presented the photo in an effort to show a possible motive for Wright to have committed the murder.

Later on, Justice used the photo to show that Wright could not have known about the victim having been struck on the forehead because of his hat. Wright then explained that he had placed Smith's hat on his head for reasons unknown, and when he first arrived after the murder, his head was in full view. Wright later pointed out that Kristoph Gavin had said that the cards were blue near the beginning of the trial, despite the fact that there was also a red set of cards. Justice protested that he surely knew about the cards, but Wright said that this photo he had since before the trial was in black and white, therefore there was no way to tell if any of the cards were blue or red.
