Willamette Mysteries is a collectible in Dead Rising 4.

Frank can collect pieces of mysteries about the town of Willamette. There are several pieces to each mystery. Frank will gain PP for each clue collected, and will get a bonus amount of PP when a mystery is fully solved.

Mystery pieces are obtained by picking up newspapers. If the 'newspaper locations' map is purchased from the vendor at safe houses, newspapers will appear as yellow shields with the letter "W" in the middle on the map.
