EPISODE PREVIEW – Part 1

The mystery of Brett Cantor’s murder still haunts Hollywood like a ghost. He was the son of influential music manager, Paul Cantor, who helped shape the careers of superstars such as BJ Thomas and Dionne Warwick.

Brett followed in his father’s footsteps after graduating from Beverly Hills High to become an A&R rep for Chrysalis Records. As a music promoter, he had a keen eye for talent, and is credited for discovering bands like Rage Against the Machine. He was good looking, charismatic, and dated Hollywood starlets including Rose McGowan.

By age 25, Brett was tapped by nightlife kingpin Steve Edelson to become a partner in the nightclub, Dragonfly. There, he ran a popular a hip-hop night called Riot and threw some of the biggest raves in Hollywood.

On July 30, 1993, Brett Cantor’s life in the fast lane took a deadly turn. He left Club 435 North in Beverly Hills at 1 am after an argument with another club promoter and headed home to West Hollywood. Three hours later, he would be dead.

The series includes exclusive interviews with his family, friends, and Rick Jackson—the original homicide detective assigned to Brett’s case, and he provides an inside look into his 1993 investigation.

Detective Jackson reveals how Brett’s murder became the subject of renewed interest when OJ Simpson‘s defense team tried to unsuccessfully tie his murder to the stabbing deaths of Nicole Brown-Simpson and Ron Goldman.

Through the harrowing details of Brett’ Cantor’s precognitive final days, his murder, and the eerie aftermath documented by his family and friends, we will reveal shocking new details in his unsolved murder and the trail of clues the killers left behind.
