The departure of Dr. Tara Price surprised many of the CSI Miami fans, by the way she was preparing, especially by showing her addiction, which ended up destroying her career. But, did that really happen?
Even though the popular CBS show CSI Miami ended in 2012, it still caused great sensations among fans. But, some fans have been talking about the way Dr. Tara Price (Megalyn Echikunwoke) came off the show, which lasted only one season.
Recall that during the seventh season in 2008, actress Megalyn Echikunwoke joined the series CSI Miami as Dr. Tara Price, to replace actress Khandi Alexander, who was the medical examiner Alexx Woods.
The character of Echikunwok, quickly became a regular during the seventh season along after Alexander’s departure, which left many viewers with high expectations for her role.
However, the character began to present personal issues that led her to addiction, which became increasingly apparent in her work, making several mistakes while performing autopsies.
After working on an investigation, Ryan (Jonathan Togo) caught her drinking pills while working and again urged her to seek help. But she refused, and Ryan reminded her warning about what would happen if he caught her again.
Things got worse for Dr. Tara because she was stealing medications and opioids from the workplace, so team members applied for a warrant to search her locker and found enough evidence to fire and arrest her.
As she began taking the pills, fans could tell her sad fate was drawing closer. After she was arrested, there was no further information about the character, she was only briefly mentioned in later seasons of CSI Miami.
