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.

The next morning, Riggs and Murtaugh go to Dixie's home to question her, but her house explodes just as they arrive. Investigating the site, Riggs (a former Special Forces soldier in Vietnam) finds part of the bomb, a mercury switch, knowing only a professional would use such a device. A [[Alfred|neighborhood child]] also remembers seeing a Caucasian blonde man at Dixie's earlier circling the perimeter and checking the meter there, who had a Special Forces tattoo similar to Riggs' own. Seeing a connection to Vietnam, they decide Michael Hunsaker knows more than he has admitted and Murtaugh confronts him at Amanda's wake.

Hunsaker admits he is involved in a heroin-smuggling operation run by Vietnam War special forces troops, known as 'Shadow Company' (see Air America). The scheme is masterminded by a ruthless retired General, [[Peter McAllister]] - the former commander of Shadow Company - and his chief enforcer and second-in-command, [[Mr. Joshua]]. Hunsaker was laundering their profits through his bank. McAllister had ordered the murder of Amanda when Michael wanted out and unsuccessfully tried to alert Murtaugh to the scheme. Just as Hunsaker was about to reveal the entire operation to Murtaugh, Mr. Joshua makes a surprise appearance in a helicopter and shoots Hunsaker dead with a sniper rifle.
