DR CAROL CHASKI
KURT COBAIN' MYSTERIOUS DEATH
Carole Chaski is a renowned forensic linguist and Executive Director of the Institute for Linguistic Evidence, a non-profit research organization devoted to research and development in linguistic evidence. She was asked to analyse Cobain’s suicide note. Viewers watched her describe the ‘linguistically interesting’ aspects of the final lines of the note and how they appeared to be from a ‘stereotypical suicide note’ in comparison to the rest of the note.
Interview with Dr. Carol Chaski clarifying that the creators of the film Soaked in Bleach failed to mention that Chaski agreed with the official suicide verdict. When asked her opinion on the film and her involvement in it she stated, “What I did say is that the note had typical variation of real suicide notes with the top half being one kind of suicide note and the bottom one being another (more stereotypically-conceived) kind, both real suicide notes. My results do not support the conspiracy theory that Courtney Love authored the bottom portion to make it look like a suicide note”

MURDER OF MARILYN MONROE
Since Marilyn Monroe died among suspicious circumstances on the night of August 4, 1962, there have been queries and theories, allegations and investigations, but no definitive evidence about precisely what happened and who was involved . . . until now. In The Murder of Marilyn Monroe: Case Closed, renowned MM expert Jay Margolis and New York Times bestselling author Richard Buskin finally lay to rest more than fifty years of wild speculation and misguided assertions by actually naming, for the first time, the screen goddess’s killer while utilizing the testimony of eye-witnesses to exactly what took place inside her house on Fifth Helena Drive in Los Angeles’ Brentwood neighborhood.
In this Episode we talk with True crime Authors Jay Margolis and Richard Buskin as we discuss their Findings while writing the book The Murder of Marilyn Monroe: Case Closed.
MURDER OF MARILYN MONROE
Marilyn Monroe Declassified is a feature documentary by director Paul Davids about Marilyn Monroe's life and career and her untimely, mysterious death in 1962 at age 36. Perhaps the most groundbreaking aspect of this film: Declassified FBI and CIA documents have helped the director unravel the puzzle of her demise, which was officially ruled a "probable suicide." Many people with first-hand knowledge at the time of her death did not agree with "probable suicide," and information about her affair with President Kennedy and close association with his brother, Robert, came out later. Two policemen and eventually two chiefs of police of Los Angeles (Darryl Gates and Tom Reddin) and Mayor Yorty all made statements that began to unravel a murder cover-up and declassified FBI files (plus Chief Tom Reddin's statement) pointed to some involvement by Attorney General Robert Kennedy.
It's time to revisit 1977 and Elvis Presley's final days in a way that no one else ever has. Grab your thinking cap and join author Steve Ubaney in volume I of his five-volume "Who Murdered?" book series, as he probes every part of Presley's mysterious death, FBI involvement, and the sinister forces at work during the final days of his career. We have been told all the lies for decades, now it's time to answer some very pointed questions. Why has history ignored the 1990 television interview where Elvis' doctor not only claimed that Elvis was murdered but named the murderer? (This Current Affair interview still exists on youtube but no one speaks of it.) Why did the City of Memphis, and the Shelby County District Attorney, ignore the evidence of foul play? Why were the first words out of Vernon Presley's mouth, upon learning of his son's death, "my God, they've murdered my son!?

DEATH OF MICHAEL JACKSON
An insightful read by the New York Times Bestselling author and star of True Crime with Aphrodite Jones. Michael Jackson was the pop icon the media loved to hate. Tremendously wealthy, inarguably eccentric, and one of the most famous people in the world, Jackson was the unenviable target of constant public humiliation. The media poked fun at his skin, his features, his sexuality, and his lifestyle. Here, seasoned crime reporter Aphrodite Jones condemns the media for perpetuating hateful rumors and innuendoes, recounting just the sordid details, and reporting only the most despicable accusations and grisly charges made against Michael Jackson during his criminal trial. They had built a highly profitable industry around the superstar's "freaky life" and banked on his conviction. And, it turns out, they got it all wrong. In their efforts to make money and win ratings, the media missed the truth. It wasn't until after the "not guilty" verdict that Jones had the insight and courage to admit her own unintentional role in the frenzy surrounding the shocking testimony, high drama, and countless celebrities in Michael Jackson's high-profile criminal trial. Bestselling author and TV host Jones makes amends with what is not only a truthful, well-documented chronicle of the entire trial but a powerful indictment against the media for conspiring to distort, dehumanize, and destroy Michael Jackson. She argues convincingly that the case against Jackson amounted to nothing more than a media-made, tax-paid scandal, and she makes an impassioned call to action for the public-at-large to think critically, question the integrity, and demand the truth in the “news”.
