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.

My favorite part is how PeeWee Herman gives the eating disorder trigger warning every ep. Kind of random, but still nostalgic.

This whole season could’ve been way shorter. Dragged out a lot of thugs unnecessarily. Wild boys was way better.

They act like this isn’t clearly a scam. Like it isn’t obvious. That’s common sense. You don’t spend your own money. And if you do you would stop at a certain point. There are certain ways big name companies act. This doesn’t make sense.

This is what happens to children who are raised in a conspiracy theory household. Their parents are 100% to blame for this behavior.

What a loser. He’s gonna spend his whole life living in fear and never getting help. & when he is on his deathbed he will have no one and nothing because he’s a coward chasing an impossible dream that no one even wants but him.

they're not Frédéric Bourdain ffs. Running TO Canada proved to be the right thing, in terms of what the younger one actually needed. Canadian doctors diagnosed him correctly and knew how to help him. The butt-hurt is still astonishing though. These guys who were running from an actual thing - in this case the wffed up way things are sone here - are devious, deceptive, manipulative and bad, and out to hurt and take advantage. IF THEY ACTUALLY LIKE KILLED OR RAPED SOMEONE, then it would be all like "oh they are young people, with undeveloped pea brains. They don't know what they're doing. Coddle them, be lenient and compassionate, and parole them after a few years".

More proof the American "health" "care" system is beyond fucked. We may have world class health care *available*, but only for the rich. Here in America, where personal worth is equated with financial, if you don't have money you're literally worthless.

Sam, are you serious? You’re falling for these guys’ bullshit. C’mon…how about asking some legit questions about why CPS was so concerned? Just because people repeat something long enough in their minds doesn’t mean it’s true. Reporting these boys’ “stories” is not reporting fact. I feel really sorry for everyone that was taken advantage of by this family.

The story has lost its mystery and Roen and Kyle aren't particularly likeable. It leaves little reason to keep listening. The "boys" rationale seems really over explained. Yes their actions made sense from their perspective at the time, I get it ... It doesn't seem that deep to me? In a way I'm more interested in Grahams perspective of his family.
