Besides the "it's obvious anyways" argument, I feel that another reason they showed you L'Belle as the murderer right at the beginning is so that you wouldn't be trying to get suspicious of anyone else, especially new characters. Namely, that funny goofy detective you just met who's not Emma like players might expect, considering Gumshoe was detective for all three original games. If we didn't know who the killer was, players might be more suspicious of everyone and then be more likely to notice some peculiarities with how Fulbright's emotions might seem off at times. Especially with the last game introducing Kristoph as Apollo's Mia mentor figure only to immediately reveal he's actually evil, no new character would be free of suspicion.

By letting players know the killer before hand, players are more likely to automatically accept Fulbright as the goofy comic relief detective he appears to be and not psychoanalyze him too hard.

imo it was because it was one of those cases where the identity of the killer didn't really matter, since the actual mystery lied in how he pulled it off, kind of like with Furio Tigre

Hope Frieza doesn't chuck an Iceberg at the Goku, otherwise it's all over. -Nekoslash
