Status Deceased (1974)

Harry Denton was a former corrupt cop turned P.I. who was hired by Caroline Hargreave to find her stepdaughter, Michelle aka Bunny. He then discovered concrete proof Caroline was a black widow who killed Bunny's father and her previous husband, and was planning on having Bunny committed to an asylum to keep her quiet. Harry, tired of being the bad guy in so many situations, then decided to help Bunny escape her stepmother by faking her death and moving her someplace safe with a new identity. He then found out that his old friend who was also Caroline's lawyer, Wilson Katz, helped dispose of the evidence of the murders Caroline committed. Harry confronted his friend and found out he did it because he loved Caroline. Harry told Wilson to get away from her and that he was going to the cops. Wilson tried to buy his silence but Harry ripped the check he gave him in half, claiming he was no longer that guy anymore and that he was going to the police. However, he was then shot in the back by Wilson.

Harry's death unfortunately destroyed all the evidence against Caroline and she got away with murder, despite Wilson's arrest. Due to his shockingly noble actions that led to his death, Kat Miller, placed the bottle of Harry's favorite scotch that his assistant kept for him all the years he was dead in case he returned in his case box after writing "closed" on it. Harry's ghost appears to Bunny as she's making pottery.
