A Mystery, Solved

Solve the mystery of Leonora Johnson.   

There are 50 hidden Letter Scraps scattered all over San Andreas and they can be picked up with any character at any time during the game. These letters are small, glowing pieces of paper that were left behind by a serial killer in San Andreas. Like the space ship parts, some of these scraps can only be reached with a helicopter.

After finding all 50 scraps, proceed to the newly discovered green question mark icon in Rockford Hills while playing as Franklin. There, you will meet Leonora Johnson's killer, Peter Dreyfuss. After a short cutscene, it is up to you in deciding Dreyfuss's fate. Regardless of what you do to the man, the achievement will unlock after your decision is made.

It is recommended to work on both set of collectibles after you have purchased the Downtown Cab Company as Franklin. Once you own the company, taxi rides will be free. If you are following the videos, you can just set a waypoint to the next collectible and fast travel to your destination through the taxi cab. Make sure to whistle when you get out of the cab so it stays there while you grab the collectible. Credit goes to WalterWhite for this brilliant idea.

I'm thinking it's the GTA universe's own Black Dahlia case.

Seems way to coincedental to not have anything to do with the Johnson family. If it is is a link i'm going to be so happy.

I think Leonora is Cj's mom.

^ His mom was Beverly Johnson and was killed, it was the reason CJ came back to Los Santos in the first place.

My guess is Carl's sister Kendl may of had a child, a daughter perhaps with Cesar. Though depending on if they got married (he told CJ he wanted to propose), she may no longer be a Johnson..

I honestly don't have a clue, just hope the old Johnson house is still there on Grove Street to begin the Mystery! :D

Any chance of this being the ending? No spoilers if the other achievements say the ending, this is the only one I read.

Leonora Johnson could be CJ's cousin.. or Rockstar just created her just so we would all think it has something to do with C.J.

Nah, no different universes, and if yes - then GTA III and SA had to colide somehow (claude being in 2 SA missions I think).

I honestly think it has something to do with LA Noire....Just Saying!!!

Throughout the game you will find collectable pages. Once you find all of the collectable pages, you will unlock this achievement. I'm not sure entirely how many to collect, as I do not recall currently (but it's a lot).

Comment #22 by sleezecheeze
Tuesday, September 17, 2013 @ 07:00:40 AM

It's 50 pages. I've so far found one and it was on the back porch of CJs old house in grove street.

50 pages?? When I picked up a page at the top cable car station it said 1 of 6?

Friday, September 20, 2013 @ 11:41:52 AM

I haven't done this yet but I was a big fan of GTA SA. I'm pretty sure LEONORA JoHNSoN Was CJs MOTHER. Remember her death was what brought cj back to grove street but they didn't go into details about her death. I could be wrong

Sunday, September 22, 2013 @ 07:53:56 PM

This does NOT have to do with CJ's mother... At least do a TINY bit of research before assuming this is tied to SA.

@32 That page is not under the water. It is above ground near the boat.

Lerona Johnson is not Carl Johnson's mother. San Andreas is based in a different universe to GTA IV & V. Lerona Johnson in actual fact, was an actress. Jump on eyefind and look for it, there is a website that looks into her murder.

Comment #46 by LoH Poe
Tuesday, October 08, 2013 @ 02:47:13 PM

just wanted to let those that may not know this. the scrap letter on top of the crane on the sky scraper do not land copter on the top of the building and walk on the beam, also do not bother parachuting to the ladder to climb the parachute. just go all the way to the bottom of the building you can easily climb all the way up on a bunch of ladders. yes true it's a bit of time but more safe and will save you from getting killed and going all the way back which waste more time. just helping out those that try for this later on. every bit of info helps.

to #47 if i had a camera i'd be more than glad to take pics to help.
however i'm pretty sure you can go to youtube for help. try that out
just put in GTA V scrap letter locations pretty sure somebody has a
detailed walkthrough of where these are. good luck hope u get 100%

You should probably get the first piece of the puzzle when you go up Mount Chilliad by elevator, since the first piece can be found there right after you reach the top. Can't really miss it when you do the bounty hunter jobs for Trevor.
