The Daily Beast's Unsolved Hollywood Murder Mysteries

Bob Crane

Bob Crane, the star of Hogan's Heroes, had a hard time getting roles after his show was canceled. He did, however, go on to make an extensive collection of home movies of his sexual escapades with the technical help of his friend John Carpenter. Though there were plenty of people with reason to be angry at Crane—he didn't always tell his partners they were being filmed—Carpenter's video experience made him the prime suspect in Crane's murder. On June 28, 1978, Crane was found bludgeoned to death with what was believed to be a tripod and a VCR cable had been tied around his neck. Nevertheless, police couldn't collect enough evidence and Carpenter wasn't charged until 14 years after the murder. He was acquitted and four years later, he died of a heart attack.
