History

Background

Dreyfuss was a director in the 1970s that abandoned the movie industry after his movie "Last Will and Testament" became a confusing flop. The audience and critic reaction to the movie left Dreyfuss incandescent with rage and vowing to never work again.

During his absence, his films began to gain cult status and his image saw a renewal in popularity, with critics calling him one of the last masterminds of American cinema. However, his image was not completely clean, since over the years, many women who had worked with him began to lob accusations of sexual harrassment at Dreyfuss.

Unknown to the public, in 1975 Dreyfuss tortured and killed Leonora Johnson. After this, he wrote a confession letter to David Richards, stating that he had to kill her (and later torment her family by mailing them pieces of her body) for artistic purposes. Richards tore up the letter and scattered them across Los Santos and Blaine County.

It is also revealed in his confession letter that at some point before 1975, he and an inebriated Richards paid two hookers in Mexico to stab each other.

Events of GTA V

In a internet news article from Public Liberty Online after the mission The Long Stretch, its revealed that Dreyfuss is returning to the movie industry after rumors that he was meditating in the Himalayas or teaching philosophy in Italy.

After all 50 pieces of the confession letter have been collected, Franklin Clinton visits Dreyfuss' house to confront him about the murder. Dreyfuss denies involvement and also tries to bribe him, but when Franklin rejects his pleas, Dreyfuss attempts to run away. Here, the player can choose between killing Dreyfuss or letting him get away. However, killing him is required to get the gold medal in the mission.
