He tells Prince he can have the negatives and prints for $250,000 and Prince agrees to pay him. They meet that evening but Prince has every intention of killing him, making it look like Coben committed suicide. Reviewing the crime scene, Columbo immediately has his doubts about the suicide. To solve Coben's murder, however, he will also have to solve what happened to Galper.
