Description

Hollywood and Crime is a ground-breaking true crime series about the most infamous murders in Tinseltown history.

 In The Black Dahlia Serial Killers, host Tracy Pattin investigates the sensational unsolved murder of Elizabeth Short. Known as the Black Dahlia, Short was a star-struck young woman whose body was found completely severed at the waist in January 1947. Many remember her tragic story, yet few know that more than a dozen other women died in similar circumstances around that same time.

 In Young Charlie, internationally acclaimed actor Stephen Lang (AvatarDon’t Breathe) joins Tracy for the story behind the making of mass murderer, Charles Manson. Young Charlie takes us on a unique journey, investigating Manson’s unlikely path from his troubled childhood in rural West Virginia to the night in August 1969 when he sent his followers out to commit the most notorious crime in Hollywood history.

You can also find The Wonderland Murders here, Tracy and writer/director Larry Brand (Halloween Resurrection, The Drifter) journey back to 1981 – when four people were brutally murdered in their home in the Hollywood Hills. The Wonderland Murders is the tale of a violent home invasion robbery and the revenge rampage that followed. It involves a drug-fueled gang of criminals, a crazed crime kingpin -- and the world’s most famous porn star on a downward and deadly spiral.

32 | Young Charlie: Coming Down Fast
00:53:59

Susan Atkins horrified the Grand Jury on December 5, 1969 with her vivid, gruesome story of the Tate, LaBianca and Hinman murders. Other witnesses, including fellow Manson Family member Linda Kasabian, backed up and added to Atkins’ disturbing testimony.

Charlie now knows for certain that the Beatles with their White Album lyrics are speaking to him directly and guiding his next moves. One thing leads to another – then on Friday night, August 8, 1969, Charlie tells his right hand man, Tex Watson, to take three of the women and head into L.A. Their assignment – “do something witchy.”

31 | Young Charlie: Slippies
00:38:44

On December 4, 1969, prosecuting attorney Vincent Bugliosi interviewed Susan Atkins and was convinced he had a case to connect Manson and his followers to all the murders. And though Manson wasn’t present at any of the actual killings, Bugliosi knew that somehow Charlie had manipulated it all.

In November 1967 Charlie’s decides to move his growing family of followers to Los Angeles, so he can become more famous than the Beatles. However, his first audition doesn’t go well. Not to worry. He has a direct line to the music industry. Two of his girls have just met drummer Dennis Wilson. A Beach Boy.

30 | Young Charlie: Summer of Love
00:39:31

Susan Atkins shared with two inmates the gruesome details of the Tate–LaBianca murders, the murder of Gary Hinman, and her life with cult leader, Charles Manson. One of the inmates decided she had to tell someone and reached to the L.A.P.D.

It’s 1967, and Charlie is right in the middle of San Francisco’s Summer of Love. Just out of prison, he relocates to Haight-Ashbury and starts building his following. His first disciple is the homely Mary Brunner, a lonely librarian from Wisconsin.

29 | Young Charlie: How to Win Friends
00:40:32

In October, 1969, another raid at the Spahn Ranch led to the arrest of a family of hippies tied to a series of crimes. Their leader gave his full name as Manson, Charles M. AKA Jesus Christ, God. One of those arrested, Susan Atkins, told her inmates an unbelievable tale of murder and mayhem. If she were to be believed, “Sexy Sadie,” AKA Sadie Mae Glutz, was one of the Tate, LaBianca and Hinman murderers.

Back in the penitentiary in 1957, Charlie studies Dale Carnegie’s popular self-help book and L. Ron Hubbard’s teachings about Scientology. Charlie will use what he’s learned from them and his fellow inmates in order to become a more successful pimp.

28 | Young Charlie: Crazy Charlie
00:40:08

By September 1969, police had interviewed over three hundred people and still had no viable suspects in the Tate or LaBianca murders. It didn’t help that the two separate police departments investigating the murders were not sharing information. And no connection had yet been made between those murders and the murder of Gary Hinman in July – or to the auto theft raid at Spahn Ranch near Chatsworth in August.

By 1954, Charlie has spent seven of his nineteen years in six different “institutions.” After being paroled from number six, he meets and marries Rosalie Willis in West Virginia and decides to take his new bride to Los Angeles – in a stolen car.

27 | Young Charlie: The Ketchup Bottle Bandits
00:38:55

On the morning of August 9, 1969, the bodies of actress Sharon Tate and four other people were discovered at the sprawling Benedict Canyon home of Miss Tate and her husband, film director Roman Polanski. The victims had all been brutally murdered. The next day, the bodies of Leno and Rosemary LaBianca were discovered at their home in Los Feliz. They had been murdered in a similar, gruesome fashion.

In 1939, young Charlie Manson’s mother Kathleen is arrested in Charleston, West Virginia and jailed for robbery. After her release, she is unable to control her son and has him sent to the Gibault School for Boys in Indiana. Charlie runs away after only ten months. Then, after being arrested for burglary, he is given a second chance when a kindly judge sends him to the famous Boys Town in Omaha, Nebraska. After just four days, he escapes from there as well.

Introducing Young Charlie by Hollywood & Crime
00:02:56

How did Charles Manson become an evil, cunning monster?

In August 1969, the world is shocked by the savage murders of movie star Sharon Tate and four others at the sprawling Hollywood Hills estate she shared with film director Roman Polanski. The following night, another couple is brutally slaughtered and panic spreads among Los Angeles residents. Four months later, the mastermind behind these vicious crimes is arrested, and the public learns the name that would haunt it to this day: Charles Manson. But few knew then – or now – the full story behind the making of a mass murderer. In this groundbreaking 6-part series, host Tracy Pattin is joined by internationally acclaimed actor Stephen Lang (Avatar, Don’t Breathe) to take listeners on a unique journey, investigating Manson’s unlikely path from his troubled childhood in rural West Virginia to the night he sent his out his followers to commit the most infamous crime in Hollywood history.

26 | Cold Cases
00:58:50

In the wrap-up of our Black Dahlia Serial Killers series, host Tracy Pattin interviewed true crime experts Joan Renner, editor of Deranged LA Crimes.com and author of The First with the Latest: Aggie Underwood, the Los Angeles Herald, and the Sordid Crimes of the City, and Jim Clemente, host of Wondery’s Real Crime Profile, as well its Best Case/Worst Case and Locked Up Abroad podcasts. He’s also a writer/producer for Criminal Minds on CBS and creator of Discovery’s Manhunt: Unabomber. Tracy interviewed Joan and Jim earlier, in episodes 13 to 17, about the murders covered in the first season, including that of Elizabeth Short, the Black Dahlia. Now she follows up with them on the murders we covered in the second round – and gets these experts’ take on the big question: Were all these crimes committed by a single killer or were they the work of multiple copycats and lone wolves?

25 | Missing Persons
00:38:30

In June 1949, more than a year after the Kern murder, another body was found. Louise Springer, a successful young hairdresser, was carjacked in a parking lot on Crenshaw Boulevard, just five blocks from the site at 39th and Norton where Elizabeth Short’s body had been dumped two and a half years earlier. Four days later, Louise’s body was found in the back seat of her car, which had been abandoned on a downtown side street. The manhunt that ensued was the largest in the city since the Black Dahlia investigation. While the search continued, the first of two women went missing. Emily Boomhower, a wealthy widow, disappeared from her Bel Air mansion on August 18, 1949. Three weeks later, Jean Spangler, an attractive young starlet, was last seen leaving a Sunset Strip nightclub at two in the morning.

24 | The Best Suspect Ever
00:33:45

Eight months passed and then, on Valentine’s Day 1948, there were two attacks. Viola Norton survived an assault by two men who abducted her in Alhambra, an eastern suburb of Los Angeles, and drove her 16 miles to Leimert Park. She was found clinging to life the next morning, a few blocks south of 39th and Norton, where the Black Dahlia’s body was found. That same day, realtor Gladys Kern was stabbed in the back while showing a house in the Hollywood Hills. Her body was found two days later, laid out on the kitchen floor. The case seemed to take a promising turn when police received a confession from the killer’s accomplice. And then, six months later, the LAPD made a dramatic announcement: They had arrested a man they called the “best suspect” so far in the Dahlia case. They claimed Leslie Dillon had information about the case that only the killer could know.

23 | The Silk Stocking Murder
00:35:44

On June 21, 1947, six months after the murder of the Black Dahlia, another shocking homicide stole the Werewolf killer’s spotlight. Top Hollywood mobster Bugsy Siegel was assassinated in a Beverly Hills mansion. In a book written decades later, an author claimed Siegel killed Elizabeth Short -- making Bugsy the most notorious among dozens of suspects in the Dahlia case. And then, 12 days after Siegel’s funeral, the Werewolf grabbed the headlines again after the nude, mutilated body of Rosenda Mondragon, 21, was found rolled up against a gutter near Downtown Los Angeles. She’d been strangled with a silk stocking. On the day of Rosenda’s funeral, a woman’s body was found in a park at the beach near San Diego, 100 miles south of Los Angeles.  Had the Werewolf killer expanded his range?

22 | The Last Stop
00:31:34

Just ten days after Dorothy Montgomery’s body was found, another wife and mother was attacked – this time in Long Beach, a port city about 25 miles south of L.A. Laura Trelstad was last seen leaving a Mother’s Day party to go dancing  at the Pike, a giant seaside amusement park downtown. Her body was found in the pre-dawn hours at the Signal Hill oil field a few miles north of her home. Police tracked Laura’s movements on her final night to a downtown bar and then onto a bus heading home at about ten-thirty. She was last seen getting into a car with a stranger. But then the trail went cold. Meanwhile in Los Angeles, the murder trial in the Dorothy Montgomery case came to a dramatic conclusion when the prime suspect took the stand in his own defense.

21 | Sadist Slayer
00:32:57

The fourth victim in the mutilation murders of 1947 was Dorothy Montgomery – a mother, homemaker and a teetotaling churchwoman -- whose nude body was found sprawled beneath a pepper tree in L.A.’s southeast suburbs.  Unlike the previous victims, Dorothy was not engaged in high risk behavior – she was abducted from her car while waiting to pick up her daughter after a dance. And yet, like the others, she was brutally murdered and horrifically mutilated. Who would so such a thing? Was it the same Werewolf killer suspected of attacking the other women? Or was it the person sheriff’s detectives suspected – a man Dorothy knew very well.

16 | A Killer's Message
00:30:42
In this fourth special Hollywood and Crime episode host Tracy Pattin talks again to former FBI Profiler and Real Crime Profile Host, Jim Clemente and Hollywood Crime historian and author of website Deranged LA Crimes. This time they analyze two murders—Jeanne French and Evelyn Winters. Because Jeanne French’s murder was similar to The Black Dahlia’s, Jim looks at whether a pattern is developing asking, “Is this the work of a serial killer?” He applies his 21 Century behavioral analysis and puts together profiles of the murderer or murderers, while Joan looks at the cases and the victims through the Hollywood crime historian lens discussing their downward spirals.

12 | Man Crazy
00:32:26
In late March 1947, while police in Los Angeles hunted a serial killer, FBI agents in Pittsburgh interrogated the latest prime suspect in the Black Dahlia case. An Army sergeant recounted the romantic 24 hours he’d spent with Elizabeth Short in September. He marveled at how she’d been treated like a celebrity in a Hollywood nightclub – and revealed that she was surprisingly unresponsive in bed. After the sergeant’s interview, the LAPD’s murder investigation into the Black Dahlia and the other cases all went cold. There were no new leads in April. Then, on May 2, another woman’s mutilated body was discovered in an empty lot. The horror had returned. New to Hollywood & Crime?

00:29:30
After midnight on March 10, 1947, a railroad worker happened upon a woman’s body sprawled near the tracks in Downtown Los Angeles. Assuming she was drunk, he tried to kiss her – and to his horror realized that the woman was dead. Nine hours later, another dead woman turned up on a riverbank 15 miles away. Both had been beaten and strangled. Both had dark hair. The first victim was identified as Evelyn Winters; the second woman as Mae Preston. Theirs made the third and fourth murders of women in the city since Elizabeth Short, the Black Dahlia, was killed. Pressure mounted on the police. The werewolf killer must be stopped.

10 | Dream Killer
00:30:53
A month after the trail went cold in the Black Dahlia case police were retracing the steps of Lipstick Murder victim Jeanne French, hoping they would lead to her killer. What they found instead was another brutal murder. The victim this time was an elderly man. The killer had knocked him unconscious, butchered his body into six pieces and carefully packed the body parts into boxes. Meanwhile, as that case unfolded, Black Dahlia investigators were confronted with a series of promising leads, bloody clues and hasty confessions that all led to dead ends. The city was on the verge of panic – and things were about to get much worse. New to Hollywood & Crime?

9 | The Lipstick Murder
00:30:40
On February 10th a woman’s body was found lying in the weeds in a desolate area called “the Moors.” Her face had been beaten to a pulp, and the killer had slashed her face across the mouth from ear to ear – a gruesome reminder of Elizabeth Short’s murder. Police suspected the same person might have killed both women. This latest victim was Jeanne French, once a celebrity known as the Flying Nurse. Her husband, Frank French, was instantly the prime suspect. Then a corporal at Fort Dix, New Jersey confessed to the Dahlia’s murder, and all bets were off – again. New to Hollywood & Crime?

“Werewolves Leave a Trail of Women Murders in L.A.” Only eight days after Elizabeth Short’s body was found Herald-Express reporter Agness Underwood connected the Black Dahlia with an ever-growing list of high profile cold cases, including those of Georgette Bauerdorf and White Gardenia victim Ora Murray. Then a package arrived at the city post office containing Miss Short’s personal effects and a message made up of words and letters cut out of newspapers. “Here is Dahlia’s belongings. Letter to follow.” Perhaps the killer was getting ready to turn himself in? New to Hollywood & Crime?

7 | Red Herring
00:33:39
Police investigators closed in on Suspect #1 in the sadistic murder of Elizabeth Short, the Black Dahlia. The man they sought was Robert “Red” Manley – identified when he used his real name to check into a Pacific Coast Highway motel with Short on January 8th. That was just the first of many mistakes Red made, including lying to his wife. After his arrest, Red was questioned and given two lie detector tests. But was he guilty of more than cheating on Harriette? Police tried to piece together the Black Dahlia’s missing week, January 9th thru the 15th. Was she drugged and held in some secret place – a warehouse, an abandoned building? A torture chamber? New to Hollywood & Crime?

Homicide detectives and reporters retraced Elizabeth Short’s steps prior to her body being discovered in Los Angeles on January 15th. Her mother, back in Massachusetts, told investigators that “Betty” had been living in San Diego. She was also traced to Long Beach, where regulars at a drugstore called her the Black Dahlia, because of the way she dressed and wore her hair. The Black Dahlia nickname captured the public’s attention and stuck. Betty was last seen on January 8th leaving San Diego with a man named Red. But where was Red now? And was he the killer?

January 15, 1947: The body of a young woman was found in a vacant lot south of Hollywood. Mutilated, completely sliced in two at the waist and drained of blood, her face was slashed into the infamous “Glasgow smile.” The head of Los Angeles’ Homicide Squad called her murder one of the most brutal killings in the city’s history. It took a search of FBI fingerprint files to identify her. She was Elizabeth Short, a star-struck twenty-two-year old from Massachusetts. Although not famous in real life, in death she became the most famous cold case of all time. New to Hollywood & Crime?

Two women are found mutilated and murdered in downtown Los Angeles. One woman’s body was lying in the doorway of the closet at the Barclay Hotel. Her leg had been hacked off at the knee; her ankle and foot tossed aside. A few hours later the second woman’s body was discovered at the Joyce Hotel. Her left breast had been severed and she had been sliced open from throat to abdomen. An APB went out for a tall thin man, whom the press would dub the Vampire Slayer – for good reason.

Early one morning, a young boy and his dog stumbled upon the body of a woman lying on a golf course. Her name was Ora Murray, and she’d been strangled and mutilated – a white gardenia corsage still pinned to her tattered dress. In Los Angeles to visit family, Ora had gone out dancing one night at the Zenda Ballroom with her sister Latona. There they met a good-looking, friendly man, who offered to take the sisters on a tour of Hollywood in his car. Latona went home to her husband. Ora drove away with the man into the night. It was the last time she was seen alive. New to Hollywood & Crime?

After young oil heiress Georgette Bauerdorf was found raped and strangled in her Sunset Strip apartment, police turned their attention to the famous Hollywood Canteen, where she volunteered as a junior hostess. A soldier referred to as the Jitterbug Dancer quickly became Suspect #1. But he was just the first of many suspects. Although hostesses were strictly forbidden to socialize with servicemen, it turned out Georgette allowed dozens of men to sleep over and that she'd been generous with both her time and money.
