Synopsis

Celebrities and Crime by Michael Newton

The public's fascination with celebrities can reach a fever pitch when celebrities commit or are involved in a crime. Famous victims like the Lindbergh baby and Sharon Tate have raised public outcry against the cruel crimes that claimed their lives. And the trials of celebrity criminals such as Jim Bakker and O.J. Simpson are proof that even the rich and famous are not above breaking the law. Celebrities and Crime examines the crossroads where fame and the underworld meet, looks at special types of crime targeted at celebrities, and discusses how law enforcement handles celebrity victims and celebrity perpetrators.The chapters include: The Devil's Business; Stalked!; Murder in Brentwood; Number One with a Bullet; and The Price of Fame. The cases covered include: Charles Lindbergh Jr. kidnapping; Charles Manson and the Manson Family murders; The unsolved murder of actor Bob Crane; Celebrity stalkers and assassins, including the murder of John Lennon; Celebrity frauds Jim and Tammy Bakker; The O.J. Simpson murder trial, and other famous athletes' encounters with crime; Tupac Shakur, and the gangsta rap feud between the East Coast and West Coast rappers; Celebrity shoplifters and the Winona Ryder case; and Robert Blake, accused of murdering his wife.
