||played Lt. Joe Leaphorn in Mystery!
Joe Leaphorn is a lieutenant with the Navajo Tribal Police. His jurisdiction is the Navajo Reservation that covers parts of New Mexico, Arizona and Utah. Leaphorn is somewhat of a legend in the Navajo police world of 100 plus officers and considered a fairly important person.
But the reservation was not his home originally. He was an urban Indian. A city cop who has been transplanted to the reservation at the wishes of Emma, his wife, who is sick with cancer. The Lieutenant is all business and skeptical of the Navajo traditions and has a obsessive dislike for bootleggers and anything to do with Native witchcraft.
