Identity Theft

A man (Bruce Davison) who confessed to murder while Brenda was away on her honeymoon gets details of the crime wrong during his allocution, causing Brenda to reopen the case. Her first thought is that he is trying to cover for his schizophrenic son (Michael Arden), whose doctor was the victim. Brenda’s investigation, however, is interrupted by a visit from her mother (Frances Sternhage), who hopes to pawn her troublesome niece off on Brenda and Fritz for the summer. Cynthia Watros also guest-stars.
