Storyline

Brenda and the Major Crimes team investigate the death of Bob Michaels, father of aspiring pop star Missy Michaels. Found at the bottom of a cliff after a 5-day disappearance while hiking, it has the appearance of a suicide. Medical examiner Dr. Morales determines that Bob's been dead for twelve hours or so, which raises the question of what he'd been doing for the previous four and a half days. Further examination finds pepper-spray on his face along with blue candy and a pizza in his stomach, suggesting deception at best, murder at worst. Ambitious parents are at the root of it all. Meanwhile, the Baylor family offers to settle the lawsuit against Brenda and the city, but the language in the settlement isn't as clear as Brenda's lawyer or Capt. Raydor would like.
