I'm a COLD CASE fan, but didn't like 'Lonely Hearts'
13 December 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I thought most TV shows had a disclaimer about any resemblance to real life incidents being coincidental. This one was so coincidental it was as if Bruckheimer Productions was either 1) looking at a strictly young audience, or 2) assumed the audience it had was forgetful or stupid.

This episode made no effort to cover its resemblance to an infamous series of murders in the 1940's. Even the name was the same: "The Lonely Hearts murders". Raymond Fernandez & Martha Beck combed the newspaper personals ad's to find their victims, subsequently killing them. Martha Puck & Ramon Delgado? How creative is that? Try www.google.com, which will probably lead you to www.crimelibrary.com for this story. Fernandez & Beck died one after the other in Sing Sing's electric chair in '51. Puck & Delgado meet slightly dissimilar fates. The Bonnie & Clyde twist didn't improve the story any. The only remotely amusing part of this story was the usually crude Detective Nick Vera engrossing himself in the tawdry romance novels of Martha Puck, in order to understand her as a person. If you're a true crime buff, don't even bother with this one.
