Earlier this year, I wrote about a court officer in San Francisco who killed a juror on a case back in the 1970s and tried to make it look like he had discovered the body already dead.  His inspiration was a case from the 1960s in which the same thing happened at a meeting of the world's greatest detectives.

(And with this case, I linked 'McMillan & Wife', 'Burke's Law' and 'Starsky & Hutch'.)

About forty years later, that second murder was added into the accounts of the murder at the "Super Sleuth" convention and how the latter inspired the former.  And a court officer in Honore, St. Marie, named Erol Dumas learned of both those cases this past year and decided to adapt it for his own scheme in killing the man who was responsible for the murder of Erol's lover.  But once again, the scheme was foiled by the local police.

  • 'Burke's Law' - "Who Killed Supersleuth?"
  • 'McMillan & Wife' - "Guilt By Association"
  • 'Death In Paradise' - Season 4, Episode 8
  • 'Starsky & Hutch'
