In June 1978, Bob Crane, the star of the sixties sitcom Hogan's Heroes but now reduced to playing on the dinner-theater circuit, was found bludgeoned to death in Scottsdale, Arizona, where he was appearing in a comedy titled Beginner's Luck. There was what appeared to be a telephone cord knotted around his neck; his nondescript apartment, rented for him by the theater, was filled with pornographic pictures and videotapes of himself and numerous women - some from Scottsdale, others from cities where the play had previously toured. The killer could have been the husband or boyfriend of any of them, but it could also have been Bob's estranged wife, Patti, or his best friend, John Carpenter, who appeared with Bob in several of the tapes. Bob was cooling toward Carpenter, friends had noticed, though they had palled around in Scottsdale

Nothing prepared Dullea for the answer
