"Anatomy of a Killing"
AIRDATE: 11.10.84


WHAT SAID:  

Hooker volunteers to help a colleague (Jim Brown) crack a drug-related murder and finds that the cop's daughter (Penny Johnson) -- a heroin addict -- is their only hope for convicting the killers.

SYNOPSIS:  

Hooker volunteers to help ex-partner Jim Cody on an execution-style murder investigation connected to the drug trade. Clues lead them to believe that Cody's daughter Lisa is involved with the Powell brothers, major drug dealers in the area. Cody arrives home to confront Lisa and finds her gone. Meanwhile, Romano has run a check on the vehicle used by the murderers and finds out the car belongs to the Powells. Staking out their home, Hooker and Cody apprehend the Powells and take them into custody. Their attorney, Art Schneider, is spotted at a local restaurant with Lisa, and Hooker believes that Schneider is setting her up. Cody sees marks on his daughter's arm, but is able to convince her that the police can help her. She explains that she and Norman Powell visited a man named "Doc" early on the day of the murder, but that she didn't realize he was a hitman. Eventually Doc is tracked down to a motel and is taken into custody. Lisa, who is now going through massive withdrawals, is able to go through the police mug books and identify the accomplice, Titus Jackson. On a raid at his home, Titus is shot. With the case closed, Cody vows to help his daughter recover from her drug addiction.
