SON OF SAM ////// 21


The summer of 76 unleashed a monster onto the streets of New York City. There was a mad man lurking in the shadows, thirsty for the blood of young women. Dubbed the 44 caliber killer due to his weapon of choice, this crazed killer openly threatened police & the women of New York City & gave himself a new name, the Son of Sam. Grab a couple of cold ones but make sure to leave the garage lights on cause this story gets dark, real dark!

NATALIE WOOD ////// 19

Natalie Wood and husband Robert Wagner were very much in love. Both enjoying life as living Hollywood success stories. Natalie a childhood star who had recently returned to the silver screen and Robert riding high on the wings of a highly rated television series. Their marriage was enhanced by another love: the sea. To celebrate the Thanksgiving holiday weekend the Wagners invited Natalie's "brainstorm" movie co-star Christopher Walken to join them on their yacht "Splendour" in Catalina. Drinking and bad weather we're all that was predicted for the fun holiday weekend. However Natalie's body was found floating face down in the ocean. Was Natalie killed or did she simply just drown? We'll try to figure that out tonight in the garage.
