EPISODE 3: Murder Investigation

We follow the trail of clues left behind in the shocking aftermath of Brett Cantor’s murder. We speak with Rick Jackson, the original homicide detective assigned to Brett’s case and he takes us back to August 1993 to discuss the investigation.

Together, we unearth details about Brett’s complicated love life and an ongoing feud with other nightclub promoters. We also host interviews with his business partner, Steve Edelson, brother Marc Cantor, and best friend Amy. Each shares their unique perspective on Brett’s murder.
