While in New Orleans, Jessica must solve the mysterious murder of a famous musician who died from a heart attack while performing onstage.
Victim: Ben Coleman
Killer: Eddie Walters
Cause of Death: Cyanide poisoning, via his clarinet reed.
Motive: Ben had threatened to kill his wife, Callie Coleman, despite her having covered for them in the past for something they did, and Eddie couldn't allow that.
Setting: New Orleans
When the taxi drops Jessica off at station WDBX, which is supposed to be in New Orleans, a portion of Hollywood's iconic Capitol Records building is clearly visible in the background of a long shot down the street.
When Jessica enters the "New Orleans" studio, stars from the Hollywood Walk of Fame are visible on the sidewalk.
The news director at WDBX New Orleans keeps referring to "The 11 O'clock News". New Orleans is on Central Time, so the news would have been on at 10 o'clock.
