Ep. 34 The Greystone Mansion Murder Mystery |The True Crime and Paranormal Aftermath



“Murder is unique in that it abolishes the party it injures, so that society has to take the place of the victim and on his behalf demand atonement or grant forgiveness; it is the one crime in which society has a direct interest.”

W.H. Alton

 

On February 16, 1929, four months after Ned Doheny, his wife Lucy and their five children moved into Greystone, Ned died in a guest bedroom in an apparent murder-suicide with his secretary, Hugh Plunkett.

LAPD claimed Hugh was responsible while other investigators believed that it may have been Ned’s wife Lucy since many believed Ned and Hugh were having a secret affair.

What secrets lie within the greystone walls of the mansion?  Was the death of Ned and Hugh murder suicide or something more?  What ghosts have been seen and felt around the Greystone property?  Tune in to find out !

Some places speak distinctly. Certain dank gardens cry aloud for a murder; certain old houses demand to be haunted; certain coasts are set apart for shipwrecks.

EP. 32 The Chino Hills Massacre | The True Crime & Paranormal Aftermath of the Ryen Family | Kevin Cooper



On June 5, 1983, William Hughes peered through a sliding glass door into the master bedroom of the Ryen family’s house in Chino Hills. He spotted the bloodied body of his 11-year-old son Christopher, who had spent the night with the family. Nearby were Peggy and Doug Ryen, hacked and slashed to death. Eight-year-old Joshua Ryen lay on the floor, his throat slit, but alive. Out of sight in the hall was Jessica Ryen, 10, no longer breathing.

Two days before the killings, Kevin Cooper had escaped from a prison in Chino Hills, where he was serving a sentence fro burglary.  Police found evidence – cigarette butts, a button from a prison uniform, a leather hatchet sheath – that Copper had spent two days in a house near the Ryen’s property after his espcape from CIM.

He was arrested about seven weeks after the killings.  At the trial, jurors heard the lone survivor give a videotaped statement that conflicted with what he had said when he was first interviewed with hospital staff and San Bernadino detectives.  Josh Ryen mentioned in his first statements that he saw 3 white or hispanic individuals in the house the night of the murders.  More statements and evidence were later turned into authorities -that would later not be used in Kevin Cooper’s trials to support his case.

EP. 22 THE POLTERGEIST CURSE & PARANORMAL AFTERMATH



Behind every spooky horror movie is a notion that the events really did take place. Is that true for the 1982 hit classic film The Poltergeist?

Reportedly, yes. The film was based (loosely) on the events experienced by a 1953 New York family, the Hermanns and their little boy, James.

But the film’s story centers around a little girl, and a  poltergeist who terrorizes  her and her whole family.

it seems that Superstitious legend holds that a number of strange deaths are connected to a ‘curse’ on the ‘Poltergeist’ film series.

was a curse the cause for the deaths that followed the film’s trilogy series?

What strange events occurred on set ?

What followed the cast and crew members home after filming?

We talk about this and much more on Ep. 22 the curse and paranormal aftermath of the film, The Poltergeist!

 


Ep.4 Famous Haunted Hollywood Apartments



Drive around Hollywood neighborhoods and you can see buildings and structures that have been around since the development of the city.   The art deco structure and their unique designs can almost tell stories of the golden era.

Many of these structure were owned by major production companies, MGM, RKO, Warner, Paramount and 20th century Fox.  Their purpose was to house fresh and new actors/actresses during their transition period in Hollywood.    

Within time these structures have seen many deaths, suicides and strange occurrences.  Eventually they were passed down to different owners and were bought by other companies to turn them into public apartments.  However, there is that saying, “if these walls can talk…” in a lot of these dwelling, they literally do. Press your ear against the wall, and you might hear something.  Can it an old famous Hollywood resident that is trying to communicate with you from beyond the grave?  Or could it be something else?  We also talk about  sipping mimosas with Mae West’s ghost, LA rent and one famous Hollywood Hotel/Apartments that was the inspiration of Disney’s Hollywood Tower of Terror Ride.  Brice also shares his first Hollywood party experience on the rooftop of famous apartment building LOL!  Stay tuned!
