Background information and notes Edit

  • This episode seems to be based on the Roy Radin murder case. Radin was a theatrical producer best known for reviving the old Vaudevillian shows. On Friday, May 13, 1983, Roy Radin stepped into a limousine rented by Karen Jacobs-Greenberger with the intention of going to a restaurant and discussing the business arrangement further. About a month later, his body was discovered in a California canyon. He had been repeatedly shot in the head and a stick of dynamite had been set off in his mouth. The story behind Radin’s death was a labyrinthine tangle mostly involving drugs. Greenberger turned out to be a woman of many names and interests. Although producer Robert Evans was initially suspected of the crime, Greenberger was eventually convicted. [1] (Source: Roy Radin at Wikipedia)
