The SL-9 Incident files are a collection of reports concerning the SL-9 Incident (colloquially known as the "Joe Darke Killings"), which were a series of murders at the hands of Joe Darke that culminated in the killing of prosecutor Neil Marshall in an office inside the Los Angeles Police Department. This last incident allowed Darke to finally be caught and put on trial, whereupon he was promptly found guilty and executed soon after.

The files were used as evidence in Phoenix Wright's investigation into the murder of Bruce Goodman.

Role in Goodman murder caseEdit

Main article: Rise from the Ashes

Two years after the apparent resolution of the Sl-9 Incident, Chief Prosecutor Lana Skye, a witness in Marshall's murder, was accused of murdering Bruce Goodman, who had been the head investigator in the incident. Her superior, Damon Gant, made her think that he had evidence that proved her younger sister had accidentally been the one who killed Marshall and used it against her to take the fall for Goodman's death. However, when her defense attorney Phoenix Wright began to show signs that he could defeat Gant, she acquired the SL-9 Incident files for him. The files proved to be vital to Wright's case, allowing him to prove that Gant had not only murdered Goodman, but also Marshall two years previously.

The most notable thing about the SL-9 Incident Files is that, excluding the SL-9 victims themselves (which the exception of Neil Marshall), every person mentioned in the file was involved in some way with Lana Skye's trial, albeit with different roles.
