The Gruesome Crimes of the Toolbox Killers
Criminologist Laura Brand is the executive producer of “The Toolbox Killer” documentary currently streaming on Peacock. It’s the horrific, true crime story of two sadistic serial killers, Lawrence Bittaker and Roy Norris, who terrorized and killed teenage girls in Southern California over a 5-month period in 1979. The pair often used tools found in a typical toolbox to torture and maim their victims before murdering them. Laura Brand built up a relationship with Lawrence Bittaker before he died on San Quentin’s Death Row in 2019, and managed to get him to open up about the crimes as well as share the possible location of two of their victims whose remains have never been recovered. Laura explains who and why she got involved in the case, some of the details of Bittaker and Norris’ heinous crimes, how and when they were finally caught, and how Laura managed to get Bittaker to confide so much in her.

The WWF Steroid Trial
In 1994, the United States District Court for the Eastern District of New York brought a criminal case against Vince McMahon accusing the then-chairman of the World Wrestling Federation of supplying illegal anabolic steroids to his professional wrestlers. After deliberating for 16 hours, the jury eventually found Vince McMahon not guilty. Dave Meltzer from the Wrestling Observer Newsletter and Wade Keller, editor of the ProWrestling Torch newsletter, both covered the trial in-person at the time, and Wade even stayed in the courtroom when the verdict was read. Dave and Wade share the story surrounding the case including the reasons for the government’s pursuit of Vince McMahon, the role that Dr. George Zahorian’s conviction played in it, how the McMahons found out about the indictment, what they did in preparation for trial and possible conviction, why Hulk Hogan was a witness for the prosecution, the defense strategy employed by WWF lawyer Jerry McDevitt, and Vince McMahon’s reaction to the not guilty verdict. They also break down the damage done by Hulk Hogan’s subsequent appearance on “The Arsenio Hall Show,” and discuss the impact the trial had on the wrestling industry as a whole, and what may have happened if Vince McMahon had actually been found guilty and served jail time.
