During Amanda's autopsy, liquid drain cleaner was found in her system. Supposedly, her barbiturates were all laced with liquid drain cleaner, which ended up in her system in the process. Although she jumped to her death, she would have died within minutes anyway, making her death a homicide, not a suicide. After informing her distraught father, who says he was trying to contact Murtaugh to get Amanda out of her drug and pornography habits, Riggs and Murtaugh go to question a pimp known to have connections to Amanda. Finding a drug lab on the premises, they engage in a brief gunfight with the pimp, where Riggs saves Murtaugh's life, leading to there being respect between them. Having found the drugs and with the pimp dead, Murtaugh assumes the case is closed, but Riggs finds it suspicious that the only witness to Amanda's suicide was a prostitute named [[Dixie]], who was working away from her usual location. They deduce Dixie was the one who poisoned Amanda, then posed as a witness to cover her actions.
