Before I started writing useful stuff like how to check the air pressure in your tires for The Portable Dad, I wrote less useful stuff, like how to kill your whole family for a multi-million inheritance, for The Fresno Bee.
That particular triple-murder-for-hire case has been the subject of one TV documentary already, an episode of "Power, Privilege and Justice," and will be the subject of a new one airing Monday. (It's the new episode of the Discovery Investigations Channel show "Solved.")
I covered the case for six months and was interviewed on-camera for both shows. Haven't seen the new one yet, and if I look slightly bluish and my teeth chatter, it's because they filmed it one morning in early spring and it was maybe 40 degrees inside my office at the time!
