Willy Cook owned a spaghetti factory in Miami, which was used as a cover to launder money for mobster Frank Mosca. Cook took a fancy to Gina Troyano, an interior designer out of Philadelphia at a cocktail party, when Mosca showed up and began seeing Gina, then threatening Willy to get his money previously laundered back to Mosca shortly or he would pay. Later Metro-Dade Vice detectives James "Sonny" Crockett and Ricardo "Rico" Tubbs leaned on Cook to get his receipts/bank records of his Mosca dealings, or go to jail. When Crockett and Tubbs return to get the records, they find Cook floating on an inflatable chair in his pool, garotted with cheese wire, apparently at the hands of Mosca or his men.
