Where's Mr. Dillon?!
26 December 2013 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

A woman back East has contacted the Los Angeles Police. Her brother, Mr. Dillon, has been missing for a couple months and no one has heard from him. Friday and Smith investigate and follow the few leads they have--to a tenant in Dillon's apartment building, a bank officer and a friend. All admitted that Dillon was very depressed following his wife's death--but they were not in agreement as to whether or not Dillon might have killed himself. Eventually, the police come up with an interesting inconsistencies---such as Dillon's wife charging items at a local department store AFTER her death!! This led to the re-questioning of one of the witnesses and soon the case becomes a lot more complicated and sad.

I think the reason I really liked this particular episode is the character of Lucille Banner. She was an incredibly chilling character--a real sociopath. See this one and see what I mean. Well worth your time.
