Hollywood & Crime - The Execution of Bonny Lee Bakley
356
Listen here: wondery.fm/TMD_TEOBLB

On May 4, 2001, Bonny Lee Bakley was found fatally shot in a car on a dark North Hollywood street. The prime suspect was her husband, famed actor Robert Blake. But Bonny, a longtime con artist, had plenty of enemies. She left behind a trail of men she’d scammed, and she had a volatile relationship with Christian Brando, the troubled son of movie star Marlon Brando.

Not since the O.J. Simpson case had the eyes of the nation been so fixated on a homicide. The search for Bonny’s killer took detectives on an eleven-month odyssey across the country and through Hollywood's underbelly of hustlers, drug addicts, and would-be hitmen. It would be the most expensive murder investigation in LAPD history to date.

This is the story of Robert and Bonny’s toxic relationship, her shocking murder, and his chaotic trial. Did actor Robert Blake kill his wife? Or was the murder someone else's vendetta?

From Wondery, and the team behind the hit series Hollywood & Crime (The Dating Game Killer, The Wonderland Murders, Death of Starlet) comes a six-part series about love, obsession and fame gone wrong.  Co-hosted by Tracy Pattin and Josh Lucas.

MURDERED: Jennifer Anne Moore
2047
Today’s case is one that hits pretty close to home for me. It’s a case that happened in the church of a pastor that I know. This pastor happens to be the Uncle of my best friend of 29 years. I first told this case for The Murder Diaries when we were a baby podcast. My best friend joined and so did her cousin, David, the son the pastor. We’ll be including the phone call we had with him exploring the impact of this case on the community and his family. We’ve grown so much since I first told it and this case is so important me that I want to do better by it. I want to tell it again. This is the case of Jennifer Anne Moore.

MISSING: Lauren Spierer
2173
After a night of partying, Indiana University sophomore Lauren Spierer left a friend’s off-campus apartment and seemingly vanished into thin air.

There’s a lot to unpack with Lauren’s disappearance, and at the center of it all is the question nobody can seem to answer: What happened to Lauren Elizabeth Spierer?

MISSING: Maya Millete
2293
Maya vanished almost exactly a year ago, leaving behind all of her personal effects and her three young children. The last person to see Maya alive was her husband Larry. Is this a case of "the husband did it?" Maybe. However, until he gets his day in court, he’s presumed innocent... even if it appears otherwise. And without Maya's body, prosecutors will be facing an uphill battle in his upcoming trial.

MURDERED: Thelma Todd
4769
Boy, do we have a treat for you!

We’ve partnered up with Melissa from The Mimosa Sisterhood podcast to discuss the fabulous life and infamous death of Thelma Todd.... or “Hot Toddy” as she was known amongst the elite of  Hollywood’s golden era.

But Thelma was more than a pretty face. She was decades ahead of her time, calling out anyone who participated in casting couch antics and refusing to play into the dumb-blonde stereotype that still saturates films today. Unfortunately, she also got mixed up with the wrong people. From her years-long entanglement with a married man to her supposed ties to the mafia, there’s plenty of suspects in this still unsolved death.

Was Thelma’s death a tragic mistake, or did someone decide to silence her for good?
