Julia Randall is a character in L.A. Noire and a person of interest in "The Naked City" case.



A model from New York, Julia was considered to an exceptionally beautiful woman who stood out amongst the models she worked with at D'Assine Dress Shop and was friends with Heather Swanson. Julia's good looks caused trouble, however, as it is implied by her boss Celia Stanley that the customers' husbands constantly flirted with her, and in consequence was later fired.

Julia was very emotionally unstable, and she took sleeping pills to ease her depression while taking Benzedrine to keep up with modelling and controlling her appetite. Julia also had an insatiable need for money and was obsessed with luxury living, jewelry and fine clothes. As she was desired by many men, such as Henry Arnett and Harold Stoneman, she used them to her advantage and they willingly committed acts of crime to appease her.

Through Stoneman (going by the alias of "Henderson"), Julia acquired the names of wealthy high society members, Arnett robbed these people with aid of Wilson "Willy the Wolf" Reade and Jimmy Leblanc. Unfortunately, Julia's need for more money and merchandise continued to grow uncontrollably, prompting Arnett to want to leave her gang, though she instead laughed back at him.

Events of L.A. Noire

Arnett decided to pay Willy and Jimmy to kill Julia, and they attacked her at her apartment and overdosed her with morphine. She was later found dead in her bathtub by her housemaid, Virginia Reynoldson, with the cause of death as an apparent suicide via drowning. Her death and subsequently her burglary ring were investigated by Detectives Cole Phelps and Roy Earle. After the case was solved, Julia's parents arrived in LA, taking her body back to New York for her funeral.
