Episode cast overview, first billed only:


Brenda and the priority murder Squad investigate the death of a paparazzo who fell - or was pushed - off of his hotel room balcony. The dead man, Anthony Larson, made his living photographing celebrities and then selling the photos to the news agencies or magazines. The hotel he was in specializes in providing celebrities with a private environment so, right off the bat, Brenda is facing a less than cooperative hotel management. Particularly puzzling is that the man's very expensive Nikon camera is missing. The investigation focuses on a major star who was of particular interest to Larson to the point that there was even an injunction against him keeping him away from the star's house. Although the memory card is missing from the dead man's camera (which was recovered from a pawn shop), photos provide the vital clue that leads to an arrest. Meanwhile, Brenda is upset with Fritz when a woman leaves a message on his answering machine confirming a dinner engagement. Written by garykmcd

Outstanding Performance By Guest Actress...
20 July 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I just wanted to comment on an outstanding performance by actress Dale Dickey as Anna Larsen, the wife of the murdered celebrity photographer in this episode. In my book definitely worthy of an Emmy (or other entertainment) award. The interrogation scene at the end of the episode, WOW, what a strong performance. I'm wondering how on earth the IMDb staff could omit her in the cast list here in this episode link??? She had a very strong and pivotal role here. Oh well, I saw fit to send along that information to the Update folks. I sure hope they get to it quick. She surely deserves to be credited...Well I don't really have any more comment on except to say that this last sentence was added to fulfill the 10 line minimum rule.
