The gang was with Rusty (Graham Patrick Martin) when they got a call from kooky Detective Dick Tracy (Andrew Daily) about another case. It was about the murder of a millionaire dog heir named Falcon and the dog’s owner, Marcella. Dick told them that he was working as a security guard at a posh place by an unknown group of trustees. He said that he gave him the crab cakes that Marcella ate before she died. The dog got sick and eventually died of arsenic poisoning. Dick was technically arrested for killing the dog.
Captain Sharon Raydor (Mary McDonnell) headed the investigations of the rich woman’s death. Marcella is a rich heiress who battled leukemia with an arsenic-based chemotherapy before she died. It was said that they probed about Marcella’s two family members, who was only given $1,000 as inheritance. But, she left her loyal canine with the grand mansion and a total of 20 million dollars! She also left money as funds for the LAPD. The rest of Marcella’s inheritance money was given to the Eternal Meadows, a place where they freezes the heads of the deceased for future use.
Their investigations led them to Marcella’s neighbor, Mr. Kliner. Rusty remembered that the neighbor was there when the dog died. Mr. Kliner was caught by Dick while he was trying to hide the remaining crab cakes laced with arsenic. Mr. Kliner was the one who previously called the realtors to sell the “ugly house.”
The episode ended with the arrest of Mr. Kliner while Dick got a new job as a security guard at the department store using Provenza’s letter of recommendation, which was intended for Rusty first.
