The infamous dumbbell incident shouldn't count against Arlene Francis. She and her family were away on vacation when it happened. It was a housecleaner who actually did it -Francis, as the homeowner, took financial liability, but she was not involved in the incident at all.

As for the car accident which killed a passenger in another car -Arlene's car was struck by another car, and the impact spun her car across the center divide and into the car where a passenger was killed.

Accidents, not murder.

I grew up in Ft. Worth and remember T. Cullen Davis and the trial for his step daughter’s murder. He was never even tried for the attempted murder of Priscilla, or the murder of her boyfriend. By the time I was 11 years old, my parents taught me that if you’re rich, you can get away with it.

My best friend’s brother used to attend Priscilla’s parties, after she separated from Cullen and before the murders. When my mom took me to the orthodontist, we used to drive by the mansion and go, oohhh, that’s where it all happened.

Someone who is very witty somehow slipped this into the Arlene Francis entry on wikipedia:

[quote] On May 26, 1963, Francis was involved in a serious car accident while driving alone [bold]from a legitimate stage[/bold] on Long Island to the Manhattan studio where she was expected for a live telecast of What's My Line? The force from a car that struck her car caused her to skid on the wet surface of the Northern State Parkway, jump the highway's concrete divider and collide with a car containing five passengers, one of whom was killed. Francis suffered a broken collarbone, a concussion and many cuts and bruises.

Just fell down a rabbit hole of online info about it. What a twisted case, and so typical. A damn shame.

If there's any silver lining of justice its that Davis' legacy seems to be the murders and subsequent cases alone, not his business ventures or oil-rich family name. Such and Texas story.

"I don't really think vehicular manslaughter = murder anyway "

It's second-degree murder if you were driving drunk, as Busby Berkeley was in the 1930s. He killed three people while driving hammered, and never did a day in jail because the LA justice system has been corrupt for a long, long, time.

Berkeley was reportedly "haunted" by the tragedy and slowly drank himself to death afterwards, which shows he had more of a conscience than most of the people mentioned on this thread.

This may be unpopular, but I think Andrea Yates's husband shared some responsibility for their children's deaths.

No shit, right? I've always wondered that, too. You have a violent, stalking ex and you choose to live in such a secluded place. I would've gone straight to a high-rise with security.

Also, remember that Jill Shively woman and the other guy who OJ almost ran into at the intersection on his way back from the murders. Today, Shively and the other guy would've been Tweeting from their cars that OJ Simpson almost crashed into them, before anyone knew about two people being murdered. No way that would be able to be kept out of court like it was back then.

Traffic cameras, security cameras that face the street at home and businesses, OJ's Bronco would've been caught on multiple cameras going to and from the crime scene. He would be so fucked if it all happened today, no doubt about his guilt.

I was paid multiple times by different "jury consultants" when I lived in Hollywood. They are hired to figure out which jurors are most likely to find a defendant innocent.

For example one of the questions for the OJ jurors was would you let your young daughter date and marry a Black man without reservation? At the time that viewpoint was not widely held by those who didn't have a college education.

Furthermore jurors were told the trial might last for months. Location was not in the best part of Los Angeles. Think of the background of jurors who would be OK with being isolated from their families for a long period of time. Highlight of their temporary quarantine, restriction from all news, was a trip to Walmart.

Did Nicole Simpon's condo have a little yard or somewhere that the kids could have played? If so, maybe that played into why she didn't want to live in a high rise.

And why is there almost zero discussion about the circumstances of this "accidental" death on the internet? Could it be that George is a billionaire and therefore gets to wipe away all suspicions.

I first read the alleged rumor about Jorge C. in the DM Comments section around the time the whole wedding campaign went into full gear. I later read same thing on several old DL threads but what really caught my attention was when I read about it on non-celebrity focused forums, one was a Travel Forum and another a Cooking Forum.

His Mr. Super Nice Guy image (sociopath?) along with tons of money to hire people to wipe the trail clean sure did make it easy for him to walk away unscathed. By simply bearding up and giving endless interviews declaring his love, recounting the minutiae of their "relationship" ad nauseam accompanied by constant photo ops with the clinging vine "wife" and of course the petri dish babies, he's gotten away with it. Incredible. I hope karma catches up with him with a vengeance.

If OJ did murder them, he didn't get away with it. He went to prison in Nevada while you have white people who never seem to suffer consequences for anything they do wrong.

r154 again it's the most famous murder trial in American history and captured the nation's attention for well over a year. And guilty-as-hell OJ got off. In a thread titled "Famous people who (probably) got away with murder" it's going to be talked about.

And as was said above, if today's tech had been around back then, OJ wouldn't have had a prayer of getting off.

No. I will not stop whining about that, until the rich and famous can no longer get away with crimes.

And that's what the resentment is mostly about, someone who was wealthy enough to afford the best attorneys and publicists getting away with murder, like Oscar Pistorius and Doris Duke. And that "affluenza" kid.

Charlize Theron's aunt has disputed the self defense killing claim. She also claims that Charlize's police statement has been missing from police records for years and that Charlize's mother threatened legal action if she spoke in defense of her brother. The aunt and the grandmother also claimed that Charlize's mother Gerda was the violent one and not the dad.

R158 No, you mean the white wealthy and well connected. Because those are the ones who tend to get away with murder in America. Even poor white people have gotten away with murder in America for to long.

Look at those two Crackers in south Georgia who killed that 25 year old black man. Still no arrests yet. And their not even famous. And don't forget about the people who lynched Emmitt Till in 1955 Mississippi. They were poor white people and got away with murdering an innocent black child, no consequences no prison time no death penalty no nothing. They got away completely free after brutally murdering an innocent child, because he was black in the south.

But no one ever wants to talk about those murders that took place during the Jim Crow era of America. It's not something that can be defended that's why. Even the murders white people commit against black people today are indefensible, so white society remains silent.

When it comes to racial murders, white America has everyone else beat. White people are the absolute worst historically speaking.

R164 I hear what you're saying, but for you own mental health, you need to realize that the vast majority of white people (hundreds of millions of people) are horrified and outraged by the murder of that 25-year-old black man in Georgia and many other similar cases. I know you're angry. I'm angry too about the level of injustice and inhumanity in our country, but it isn't constructive to blame people who agree with you, even if they happen to be white.

Crazy Jerry Lee Lewis probably murdered his 4th wife. He had seven wives. He tells people he thinks he's going to hell. He may be on to something there.

"There was one legal nicety: The body was there in DeSoto County, and Charlie Ward’s radio call had failed to raise the coroner. Sowell arranged for a justice of the peace, Whitley Perryman, to fill in. Of course, Justice Perryman knew the house. He’d signed out plenty of papers for that address on Malone Road. Justice Perryman went up to Jerry Lee’s for the signatures; the Killer never had to go to the judge. Even when Jerry Lee faced charges of assault and possession of a deadly weapon, Jerry Lee just forfeited bond, and Perryman considered the matter closed."

Ron Goldman and Nicole Simpson were viciously butchered to death. We would not allow such a thing to happen to a pig or cow even. But Johnny Cochran literally asked the jury to overlook the evidence in this case and do a favor for a good Black cause. It is termed jury nullification for a reason.

Sadly, whatever "message" to white peoples that this was to be conveyed resulted in the opposite-a backlash instead. Repeat: No massage was successfully sent. I was a bit surprised that Obama got elected after that. The only ideation people may have generated was the justification of White on Black crime. This was an all around tragedy for everyone.

I believed, at the time of the brutal slayings of Nicole & Ron (by OJ), that it was a "crime of passion" and jealousy. That OJ had caught Nicole with her new lover, the handsome ex-model Ron Goldman. That's how the media spun the story for it be neatly packaged and more cohesive of a story line.

However, they were NOT lovers! They didn't even know each other. Nicole forgot her glasses at a restaurant table where Ron was one of the servers. Since Nicole was a frequent patron of the bistro, which was close by, the manager asked Ron to drop them off at her condo on his drive home.

What a HORRIFIC episode of bad luck for doing a kind gesture

R220, You are so off-base regarding me, r212. I full well know that OJ is a sociopathic double murderer. The size 12 Bruno Magli shoe prints, the blood spattrrs and DNA; the glove outside Kato's room; the rejected Jill Shively witnessing of his speeding; the tardiness to his limo; his prior beatings of Nicole; his recentl-acquired knowledge of killing by knife; and his jealousy.

I don't need a visual media source; I have read every book on the case (I tend to do that with famous murders; e.g , Tate-LaBianca; Jon-Benet; Capt. Jeffrey Macdonald; even Diana, as speculation). I think the best is Bugliosi's, for he shows the fatal failures of Marcia Clarke's prosecution tactics.

R123 you are correct about Andrea Yates. She was psychotic for some time and her religious nutter husband refused to take her to a doctor.

I have spoken with the forensic psychiatrist who evaluated her shortly after the murders and he said she was so psychotic her speech was incomprehensible. He and her defense team did good work - making sure she was sent to a psych facility not prison.

Sadly as Andrea was treated for the psychosis, she became severely depressed and suicidal as she was well enough to realize what she had done.

OJ's verdict was due to fame, money, and post-Rodney King race relations. That jury wouldn't have convicted him if they had a video of the murders. I guess his prison is living every day in exile as a toxic outcast. I can't believe Nicole's kids turned out so ugly, the boy is nearly bald and the girl is HUGE.
