DEADLY DISPATCH chronicles the tragic murder of Shawn (Bone Crusher), a well-liked owner of a struggling taxi company who is gunned down in his own car while picking up a mysterious client. Portrayed by Jones, Tiffany is a local salon owner and Shawn’s longtime, high-school best friend who becomes intertwined in the puzzling circumstances surrounding his death. Unsatisfied with the police’s classification of the case being a “robbery gone wrong,” Tiffany becomes suspicious of Shawn’s grieving widow Amber (Perry). Motivated to find out what really happened to her friend that fateful day, Tiffany embarks on a quest that will not only endanger her strained marriage, but her life as well. Will she be able to come to terms with a deep secret shared between her and Shawn while seeking justice?
