Dead in Hollywood: The Menendez Brothers (issue #3)
Dead in Hollywood is a true crime zine documenting strange and tragic Hollywood deaths (color, 32 pgs.)
The Menendez brothers are the reality stars of their day – swaggering real-life Patrick Batemans. Predecessors to characters like Robert Durst and Michael Peterson - the now exonerated ‘Staircase killer.’ O.J. Simpson is arrested in June of 94’ for the murders of Nicole Brown Simpson and Ron Goldman, usurping the macabre spotlight from the Menendez Brothers. Dominick Dunne points out: “Most of America wasn’t even aware of a second Menendez trial.” Mark Feldstein, professor of broadcast journalism at the Philip Merrill College of Journalism, asserts that the Menendez case stoked the raging fire that was the O.J. trial.
