» » Harry O Portrait of a Murder (1973–1976)

Short summary

A mentally challenged young man sneaks out of his home in the middle of the night to go to a carnival. When a young woman is found strangled the next morning, his parents hire Harry to find out where their son went during the night. All the young man can say is that he saw a lion under the pier, but two other women had previously been strangled in the area, and when a fourth victim turns up, all evidence points to the young man as the killer. Harry investigates and discovers a multitude of possible suspects.

Ten years prior to this, David Janssen worked with Adam Arkin's stepmother, Barbara Dana on The Fugitive: End of the Line (1965).
