After her ex-husband, mobster Tony Galper, dies during a struggle in her home, Vanessa turns to club owner Justin Prince to help her out. He disposes of the body for her but unknown to him, tabloid photographer Linwood Coben secretly photographed him getting rid of the body. He tells Prince he can have the negatives and prints for $250,000 and Prince agrees to pay him. They meet that evening but Prince has every intention of killing him, making it look like Coben committed suicide. Reviewing the crime scene, Columbo immediately has his doubts about the suicide. To solve Coben's murder, however, he will also have to solve what happened to Galper.
