EPISODE 2: Deadly Fate

We look at Brett Cantor’s early years growing up in Beverly Hills to his life as a music mogul. The son of an influential music manager, Brett followed in his father’s footsteps to become an A&R rep for Chrysalis Records and music promoter. That experience led him to a lucrative partnership in the nightclub Dragonfly, where he met his girlfriend, actress Rose McGowan.

We retrace Brett’s final days leading up to his shocking murder on July 30, 1993. We speak with his brother Marc Cantor, and two best friends, Amy and Doug, to shine a light on what happened that fateful night.
