Pretty Dead

About this programme

23/24. The author investigates the strangulation of a beauty pageant contestant, finding a plentiful supply of likely suspects. These include her manager, who may know the provenance of explicit photos relating to his client; the venue owner, the possessor of a number of backstage shots of the girls, in various states of undress; and the event host, a sitcom star who owns a jacket matched to a sequin found in the victim's hair. Michael McKean (This Is Spinal Tap) guest stars.
