Janet Saxon was the wife of Harlan Saxon, the foster mother of Robert Foxworth, and a resident of 710 Figueroa Terrace in the Echo Park neighborhood of Los Angeles where she had lived for 21 years. By 2006 she was blind and confined to a wheelchair. She rented her garage to Foxworth, whom she calls Bobby, in order to bring in a little extra money.

In September 2006 she heard noises in her house and got out her long-barrel revolver to defend herself, although she could not have seen well enough to shoot anything. The intruder was Harry Bosch and he took the gun from her.


Saxon, whose first name was changed to Irene, was played by Veronica Cartwright in the 2015 streaming series Bosch.
