Detectives Briscoe and Curtis investigate the death of a 14 year-old fashion model, Britney Janaway. She had complained to her father, a doctor, that she had abdominal pain and he took her to his office to treat her. She also had a bruise on her back and scratches on her arm. The medical examiner determines she died from toxic shock and had been raped some weeks before. The Janaways aren't very cooperative and their lawyer goes out of his way to make it difficult by placing ads and offering a hefty reward. The police look into the Janaways household staff - past and present - and the Baltimore police help out by checking out the home the Janaways kept there. Trying to arrest their main suspect is not easy however but when they do, he is in fact a witness. Written by garykmcd
