If you were murdered, who would you want investigating it?

Taking the entire scope of the television cop drama genre into consideration - if you were murdered, who would you want leading the investigation? As sure as i'm breathing, I know there'll be some silly answers...but i'm hoping you'll give a serious one also.

Oh, and the reasons for your selection too..

For me, it would be a toss up between Robert Goren (L&O:CI), Frank Pembleton (H:LOtS) and Andy Sipowicz (NYPD Blue)...with Bobby slightly leading the pack.

Definitely Bobby Goren, if I want it solved. But Gus and Shaun, if I get to watch the hijinx.

Barney Fife.

Because one bullet is all it would take.

Although, if he brought the culprit in alive, I'd want Frank from Homicide to grill the suspect in the box until he/she confessed.

I'd like Jordan Cavanaugh to be doing my autopsy because she just won't leave well enough alone and she's super hot.

I'll take a team of Frank Pembleton and David Creegan in a joint federal/local investigation of my death.

My wife will be instructed to hire Emerson Cod and his friend Ned as private investigators.

I'm most interested in justice, not revenge. If I wanted revenge, Vic Mackey would be the only way to go. I just don't trust him even as much as I would Creegan to produce the killer without violating constitutional rights, though.

I'll take Pembleton and Bayliss. Pembleton b/c he's smart, and Bayliss b/c he would never quit.

If Bayliss did it or covered it up, I'd have to take Veronica Mars.
