Episode Willkommen
Status Deceased (2002)

Dennis Hofferman was the victim in "Willkommen". He was a cab company owner and driver for said company in 2002. Dennis auditioned and won a role in a community theater production of Cabaret.

On premiere night, Dennis stepped out for a smoke where he was confronted by the piano player Lyle. He wanted Dennis' role but was too afraid to audition so he decided to injure Dennis, only to shoot him dead. Dennis' body was discovered by his cast mate Clinton. The show was cancelled instead. It was thought that Dennis was killed in a mugging.

Lyle had hidden the gun in a prop dresser. It was found in 2006 and got Dennis' case reopened, which led to Lyle being arrested. Dennis' girlfriend Gloria Hill also found out that he had used the show's playbill (unreleased after his death) to propose to her. She imagined seeing him in the end.
