Rockstar has released a few screenshots of a crime scene you will head as Detective Cole Phelps in L.A. Noire.

In the game, players will rise through the ranks of the LAPD as they try to solve cases across five different department crime desks – the worst of which is Homicide.

Seems like Los Angeles is being “terrorized with a series of horrific murders perpetrated on young women,” and as each case is reported, it’ll be up to the player to bring the culprit to justice.

The screenshots below provide glimpses of the evidence the killer left behind. Each was seen in moving form during Monday’s trailer.

Rockstar also said that the official website for the game will launch tomorrow, with a bit more on the Homicide crime desk including high-res versions of these and other new crime scene screens.

L.A. Noire releases in the US on May 17, and in Europe on May 20 on PS3 and Xbox 360.

Rockstar and Team Bondi's impressive thriller LA Noire could be set for an April 5 release in North America.

That's according to several US retailers - including GameStop,GameFly and Amazon - who've all listed April 5 as the launch date.
Just to be controversial, another online retailer, CD Universe, has listed an April 6 release.

So far Rockstar's official line has been to expect LA Noire in "spring 2011".

A second LA Noire trailer is due to be released on Monday.
