Mug Shot Monday

 

Did anyone catch the recent episode of CBS's "48 Hours" about the brutal murder of Cayley Mandadi? How it could end in a hung jury boggles the mind -- I don't care what her ex lied about or exaggerated to get the cops to pay attention, look at the body. (God help anyone who ever has to be judged by their moronic "peers.") Here's hoping Mark Howerton gets what he has coming to him in the retrial planned for early 2021. 




How noticeable was it that he'd stopped using steroids by the time he went on trial?

By the way ...


I wanted to acknowledge that I am aware that some of you are uncomfortable with my Mug Shot Monday feature. I can't tell others how to feel -- by all means skip over it if you don't like it -- but I can tell you this. My site is a collection of things I find interesting -- tennis, music, hot men -- and true crime is one of them. And I am particularly fascinated by women who kill (I can talk Betty Broderick till the sun comes up) as well as people who seemingly have it all -- including those who have won the genetic lottery -- committing crimes. (My DVR is 80% shows of this nature.) My blog was never intended to be a hardcore news site -- that's what the NY Times and Washington Post are for -- but rather a place to share things that I might confess at a dinner party. And in this case, I didn't even come up with the idea -- you may recall when Jeremy Meeks's mugshot went viral years ago. (And there have been others since.) P.S. I'm also not one of the people sending convicted felons love letters and offering them modeling jobs!

I get your point people will over look a criminals action if they are good looking. True crime is often more fascinating than crime fiction. If people don't get it- they have no sense of humor or are hyper sensitive

Kenneth!

Just another note to tell you how much I appreciate your blog every day, and all the work you put into it. For me, it's refreshing that it's not all bad news all the time - and I enjoy your themed day coverage of attractive criminals, wrestlers, mustachioed men and speedo wearers and all the rest.

Thinking a man is good looking is not the same as condoning whatever evils he has done, of course - that applies to everyone we know, in fact. A lot of people have done bad things at one point or another in their life. We just don't know about them.

I had a good friend for years who, I learned after we'd known each other for quite a while, had celebrated his 18th birthday in Folsom Prison, in California, where he had been incarcerated for driving under the influence of heroin. He was a sweet, hot and utterly dependable guy, a talented computer programmer, who'd had a very non-standard life before he was sent to prison and cleaned himself up. We all have pasts, but some pasts have more crime in them than others.

Keep up the good work, please!
