Robert Blake Is Still Alive 17 Years After the Unsolved Murder of His Wife Bonny Lee Bakley

In 2001, Robert Blake's wife Bonny Lee Bakley was shot and killed inside her car. One year later, the Holllywood actor was charged with her murder. A high-profile trial ensued, with Robert, now 84 years old, eventually being found not guilty. A jury also agreed that he did not hire a stuntman to kill his wife. Despite the not guilty verdict, Robert was found liable in a wrongful death lawsuit filed by Bonny's three children and ordered to pay $30 million in 2005. In tonight's episode of Marcia Clark Investigates the First 48, the famous prosecutor looks into several theories surrounding Bonny's murder — and if the Baretta star was really not responsible for her death. However, finding the answer to the nearly two decades old mystery is tricky considering Bonny was married eight times before tying the knot with Robert and was romantically linked to Christian Brando, the son of legend Marlon Brando, at the time of her death.

Casey Anthony Parties Alone and Chats up Dudes at a Florida Bar

People still can't believe that Casey Anthony isn't behind bars when there's so much evidence against her in the murder of her daughter Caylee Anthony. That's why they were beyond frustrated to hear that she was spotted drinking and partying alone at a local Irish bar called O'Shea's in West Palm Beach, Fl on April 15, according to TMZ. Though it seems like Casey arrived at the watering hole alone, she was laughing and joking around with some of the guys in the bar. People can't believe that patrons would casually chat her up like that with her reputation. "Ugh pls go away!! Hope every young man and their mother know who you really are.

Marcia Clark On How ‘People v. Oj’ Changed Her Life, Why She Never Serves on Juries, and the ‘CSI Effect’ —Turn It On Podcast
Marcia Clark can’t get on a jury. The famed O.J. Simpson prosecutor, who left the Los Angeles District Attorney’s office after the accused murderer was acquitted, has spent the last 20 years writing scripts and novels, plus developing TV shows. But she can’t escape her Simpson trial notoriety.

That may explain why she hasn’t been asked to serve on a jury. “And I actually could be fair!” she laments. “I spent as much time on the defense side of things as I have on the prosecution side. But no one’s ever going to put me on a jury. I do think I get weeded out pretty fast. And my friends are also ruined. When they’re asked if they know any lawyers, they say ‘yes’ and my name, and then it’s like, ‘bye, see ya, wouldn’t want to be ya!’ I’m Typhoid Mary.

Adnan Syed, Subject of the Popular 'Serial' Podcast, Might Be Getting a New Trial

People became emotionally invested in Adnan Syed's case in 2014, when it was featured on Season 1 of the Serial podcast. He was a young man sentenced to life in prison for killing his high school girlfriend Hae Min Lee, but the podcast raised serious doubts for listeners as to whether or not he actually committed this heinous crime. Now, he might get the chance to prove his innocence once and for all in a new trial. Adnan has been in prison for 18 years, and many people feel unfairly so. He has requested a new trial, and on March 29 he got one step closer to that becoming a reality. The Maryland Court of Special Appeals upheld a lower court's order for a new trial on all of Adnan's charges. His lawyers think that he could soon be a free man. "If we go to trial, we will win that trial," Adnan's lawyer Justin Brown told CNN.

Matthew McConaughey's 'Unsolved Mysteries' Acting Debut Makes Us Love Him Even More

Hey, we've all got to start somewhere. But, who knew Hollywood A-lister Matthew McConaughey began his acting career with a role on Unsolved Mysteries? The 48-year-old actor rose to fame starring in romantic-comedies like The Wedding Planner, How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days, Failure to Launch, and Fool's Gold. So, the irony isn't lost on us that before Matthew became the heartthrob he is — he was a part a 1970s murder TV reenactment. The episode aired on Dec. 2, 1992, and included Texas' Most Wanted. The movie star's first acting credit was victim Larry Dean Dickens who was murdered in the 1978 crime. Larry was mowing his mother's lawn when a sexual predator wanted for murder parked in front of the house. The murderer was nude from the waist down, exited his truck, and walked toward a group of kids playing on the street. Clearly not a good situation... (Photo Credit: Twitter

Planned Parenthood Apologizes After Facing Backlash Over Disney Princess Tweet

Another day, another controversy. But, this time the debate combines two unlikely topics: Planned Parenthood and Disney princesses. A local Planned Parenthood located in suburban Pennsylvania posted a since-deleted tweet calling for more representation in the storylines of the fairytale characters. The branch shared the following post: "We need a disney princess who's had an abortion. We need a disney princess who's pro-choice. We need a disney princess who's an undocumented immigrant. We need a disney princess who's actually a union worker. We need a disney princess who's trans." (Photo Credit: Twitter) The tweet was a nod to a meme which suggests new traits for Disney heroines.

Marcia Clark Is About to Blow the Casey Anthony Case Wide Open on Her New Show

Nearly seven years after Casey Anthony was found not guilty of murdering her daughter Caylee, prosecutor Marcia Clark claims there is new evidence against the disgraced mother. Marcia, who is known best for her work on the O.J. Simpson trial, believes Casey's search history proves she was responsible for the death of her two-year-old little girl. During the trial, it was revealed that the term "foolproof suffocation" was found on Casey's computer, but the defense blamed it on her father George Anthony at the time. Well, according to Marcia, that is impossible. “We reinvestigate,” Clark reportedly said according to TheWrap. “The program that the defense attorney’s expert used was incorrect as to the time stamp. And that it wasn’t 1:51 when the search was done, it was 2:51 — at which point we know based on cell phone pings that George Anthony was at work, he was not at home.
