****SPOILERS**** After LAPD policeman Eric Boggs, Usher Raymond, saved Carla Arroye's,Samantha Estreban, life by shooting her pimp Rigo Valintine, Dion Jonstone, as he was about to slit her throat he started getting strange calls from a person who claimed to be the late Rigo who said he was going to finish the job that Boggs prevented him from doing: Icying his ungrateful ho, or hooker, Carla Arroyo for holding out on him! It got so bad, the phone calls, that Boggs went to the city morgue to see if in fact Rigo was there and dead as a door nail which he was!

Feeling that he might be suffering from burn out Boggs is later shocked to hear from his police partner Officer Angela Penny, Gabrielle Miller, that Carla was found murdered in her hotel room by a man fleeing the scene who matched the dead Rigo's description! Starting to feel that he's losing it Boggs goes into a deep depression not only in the fact that Carla was murdered but that he, in not killing or putting Rigo on ice, couldn't prevent it from happening!

***SPOILERS**** It's later that Boggs tracked down where the mysterious phone calls from the dead Rigo were coming from! A pay phone in the alley not far from where he gunned Rigo down! It's when Boggs got there that the truth, or what he thought it was, about that incident came into full focus reality for him. Either he lost his mind or is suffering from a deep guilt feeling in not preventing, as hard as he tried, Carla from being murdered Boggs ended his painful and non-stop suffering by ending it all himself.
