His gaze trained on the street scene outside his car, private investigator John Nazarian waits. Music pulsates along the Sunset Strip as Hollywood twentysomethings drift in and out of clubs, and Nazarian passes the night, watching for a woman and her teenage lover. Cradled in the leather seat of his Chevrolet Caprice, sipping black coffee, he listens to golden oldies. He has spent many nights like this, watching, sipping, waiting.

Instead of spending hundreds or thousands of dollars on a private investigator, you can do the basics yourself. "I always tell my clients, when they ask about the neighborhood, to make their own investigation," said private detective Janis Gabbert of Gibson & Associates in Studio City. Here are some suggestions from private investigator John Nazarian: * Go to the house without a real estate agent and look around on your own, so you're not pressured. * Visit the property at different times.

A man accused of setting up a fatal 2009 meeting at a North Hollywood parking lot was taken into custody Thursday, marking the fourth arrest police have made in the slaying of a teenager just hours after he sent an insulting text message. According to authorities, 19-year-old Mike Yepremyan sent a text message to his girlfriend, calling her friend a "bitch. " The girl he insulted saw the text, authorities said, and asked her brother to beat up Yepremyan. Soon after, Yepremyan began receiving phone calls from a stranger who asked him to meet him at a Sears parking lot in North Hollywood, according to witnesses.

After 18 months, the manhunt was drawing to a close: Police had tracked the man they believe shot and killed a teenager outside a North Hollywood department store thousands of miles away to a flat near Puerto Rico's capital city. Federal marshals on the island surrounded Zareh Manjikian's apartment complex in Carolina, a beach town teeming with tourists and perfect for an outsider looking to keep a low profile. The 23-year-old finally appeared, pulled out in his car and headed down the coast.

In one of their first phone calls, the lawyer and his private investigator outlined in no uncertain terms one ground rule: Their discussions were to be strictly confidential. "The conversations are just between you and I," the private eye tells the attorney. "Right," the attorney says. "Period," the private eye adds. In the end, however, their conversations were anything but confidential. That phone call and dozens of other recordings were played in federal court in Los Angeles this month, where the attorney, Terry Christensen, and the private detective, Anthony Pellicano, are on trial for allegedly conspiring to wiretap the former wife of billionaire Kirk Kerkorian.

The nine students from the continuation school in West Hollywood received achievement certificates and plaques congratulating them for "completing this most important educational journey." There was only one problem: Nearly all of the would-be graduates hadn't finished high school.

Two decades ago, a fast-talking former bill collector from Chicago blew into Los Angeles to help unravel the U.S. government's drug case against carmaker John DeLorean. Part salesman, part sleuth, Anthony J. Pellicano quickly made a name for himself as the kind of bare-knuckles fighter that celebrities and entertainment moguls wanted in their corner. Someone who could make problems -- including lawsuits -- go away.
