    The 2014 Mauling Death of Dayton, Ohio Resident Klonda Richey By A Pair of Cane Corso Italian Mastiffs Owned By Her Next Door Neighbor Andrew NasonKlonda Richey was a lifelong resident of Dayton, Ohio.  The house she lived in was her pride and joy and she had been there for well over 20 years by the time new neighbors moved in right next door - Andrew Nason, his girlfriend Julie Custer, and her 3 children.  The thing about Klonda is she was known as the neighborhood cat lady.  And not only did she have cats in and around her house, she had actually purchased an empty house up the street from hers JUST for her cats to live in.  Andrew wasn't too happy about Klonda's cats coming into his yard and scratching the paint on his vehicles and that is all it took for a years long feud to begin.  SOURCES:https://www.bakerhazelsnider.com/book-of-memories/1801804/richey-klonda/obituary.phphttps://melmagazine.com/en-us/story/kimberly-guilfoyle-hit-cornfed-schneider-bane-nazi-doghttps://www.dogsbite.org/pdf/laundry-list-violations-35-east-bruce-fatal-dog-attack.pdfhttps://scorchedearththepoliticsofpitb.blogspot.com/2014/02/klonda-richeys-actual-complaints-there.htmlhttps://www.daytondailynews.com/news/crime--law/man-convicted-klonda-richey-dog-mauling-case-going-prison-for-child-abuse/WipzRFsW6em5JxeMpgzJDK/https://www.daytondailynews.com/news/crime--law/couple-fatal-dog-mauling-case-sentenced/WeSCGRUAIs0BhD2fUdakCM/LINKS:Patreon:  https://www.patreon.com/killaforniapodPayPal:  https://www.paypal.com/paypalme/killaforniapodMerchandise:  https://killaforniadreamingpodcast.threadless.com/Website:  https://killaforniadreamingpodcast.buzzsprout.com/Facebook Group:  https://www.facebook.com/groups/1296620370450345/Facebook Page:  https://www.facebook.com/killaforniadreamingInstagram:  https://www.instagram.com/killaforniadreamingpod/?hl=enTwitter:  https://twitter.com/killaforniapodEmail:  killaforniapod@gmail.com

    An Look At the Deaths Of Actress Brittany Murphy And Her Husband Of 2 1/2 Years Simon Monjack 5 Months Apart But Under Eerily Similar CircumstancesIn this episode we take a bit of a more controversial look at the untimely deaths of Brittany Murphy and her husband's mysteriously similar death 5 months later, Simon Monjack.  Brittany burst on to the scene after nailing the role of "Tai Fraser" in the 1995 hit "Clueless".  She transformed from that cute, lovable character into what she and the world believed to be the quintessential Hollywood leading lady by losing weight, going blond and glamming up her style, makeup and wardrobe.  She was dating her leading men, but nothing serious or long term ever materialized until she met Simon in 2006.  They married less than a year later.  And then in 3 years time, they would both be dead.  The media relentlessly hounded Brittany before her marriage.  They then turned their sights on Simon after her death by spreading rumors and conjecture about his marriage to Brittany, the influence and control he allegedly had over her life, and the possibility that he had a hand in his death.  But what the media failed to do was take a look at themselves and the role THEY played in both of their lives and their deaths.  PROMO: STRICTLY STALKINGSOURCES:https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5pnHf0_b6-Uhttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=404d64wYldUhttps://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Bertolotti-12http://www.autopsyfiles.org/reports/Celebs/murphy,%20brittany_report.pdfhttp://www.autopsyfiles.org/reports/Celebs/monjack,%20simon_report.pdfhttps://www.yahoo.com/entertainment/three-persistent-rumors-circulating-since-090000613.htmlhttps://hollywoodlife.com/feature/brittany-murphy-mom-sharon-4536857/LINKS:Patreon:  https://www.patreon.com/killaforniapodPayPal:  https://www.paypal.com/paypalme/killaforniapodMerchandise:  https://killaforniadreamingpodcast.threadless.com/Website:  https://killaforniadreamingpodcast.buzzsprout.com/Facebook Group:  https://www.facebook.com/groups/1296620370450345/Facebook Page:  https://www.facebook.com/killaforniadreamingInstagram:  https://www.instagram.com/killaforniadreamingpod/?hl=enTwitter:  https://twitter.com/killaforniapodEmail:  killaforniapod@gmail.com

    He was an American flautist living in London, studying at the Royal academy of music.  At only 20 years of age, he was intelligent, gifted, talented...a prodigy.  On the evening of June 24, 2009 he performed at the Academy in “London Soundscapes”...featuring the music of composers such as Joseph Hayden, George Frideric Handel, and Felix Mendelssohn.  But his flute wasn't the only thing he brought with him the evening of his performance.  He had with him a relatively large piece of luggage...a rolling suitcase that contained in it the accoutrements of a thief - gloves, a small flashlight, a pair of wire cutters, a glass cutting saw with a diamond blade.  After the concert, he retrieved the suitcase from his locker and put his plan in motion...making his way towards the Natural History Museum in the town of Tring.  This wasn't the first time he'd been there, but it would certainly be his last.  After months of reconnaissance - investigating, casing, scouting, scrutinizing, studying, evaluating, analyzing, planning - he was confident he would be able to make his way around walls, barbed wire, cameras and guards in order to get what he was there to pilfer...a collection of coveted relics of the past...many of which no longer existing anywhere in world...unique, rare, endangered, extinct...priceless and irreplaceable...all for a hobby that grew into an obsession...and a golden flute.The Feather Thief:  Beauty, Obsession, and the Natural History Heist of the Century by Kirk Wallace Johnsonhttps://www.nytimes.com/2018/06/01/books/review/kirk-wallace-johnson-feather-thief.htmlhttps://people.wku.edu/charles.smith/wallace/BIOG.htmhttps://www.nhm.ac.uk/our-science/collections/zoology-collections/bird-skin-collections/bird-skin-collection-wallace.htmlhttps://www.nationalgeographic.com/culture/article/a-flautist--299-stuffed-birds--and-the-bizarre-crime-of-an-obsesIMPORTANT LINKS:Patreon:  https://www.patreon.com/killaforniapodPayPal:  https://www.paypal.com/paypalme/killaforniapodMerchandise:  https://www.redbubble.com/people/killaforniapod/shop?asc=uWebsite:  https://killaforniadreamingpodcast.buzzsprout.com/Facebook Group:  https://www.facebook.com/groups/1296620370450345/Facebook Page:  https://www.facebook.com/killaforniadreamingInstagram:  https://www.instagram.com/killaforniadreamingpod/?hl=enTwitter:  https://twitter.com/killaforniapodEmail:  killaforniapod@gmail.com

    From 1984 through 1991, thousands of fires were intentionally set from Southern California to the Central Coast, the Central Valley and countless places in between.  Homes, business, dry brush...nothing was off limits.  The arsonist left virtually nothing behind in the way of evidence that could ever be traced back to him for years.  The damage and destruction soared into the millions...countless millions.  And 4 innocent lives were lost.  The arsonist was brazen, he set fires with impunity, and he managed to get away with it for a long time...until he finally slipped up and left behind a clue that would eventually lead investigators right to him.  It was then that it became clear why this pyromaniac was able to set fire after fire after fire while managing to elude capture - he was one of them...investigating the very fires that he was setting.  Busting arsonists while moonlighting as one.  Driven by a desire for attention, to be a hero, to be the very best at arson investigation, to garner recognition for his dedication to his job while he steadily rose through the ranks.  But, there was also an insatiable desire to feed his own sadomasochistic sexual urges...which for him, was to watch things burn.  It took years for investigators to catch on to him...and even when he did come up as a possible suspect, nobody who knew him or worked with him were even willing to entertain the possibility he was the arsonist they sought.  This only emboldened him even more and allowed for the devastation and destruction to continue for much longer than it should have.  Even years later, there are many who still refuse to believe he was responsible.  Join me as I tell the story of the most prolific serial arsonist the state of California, possibly the entire country, has ever seen.  You are listening to Killafornia Dreaming...And this is the tale of the firestarter.SOURCES:FIRE LOVER By Joseph Wambaughhttps://www.aetv.com/real-crime/john-orr-arsonist-father-firefighter-murderer-family-lori-orr-kovachhttps://abcnews.go.com/US/mind-arsonist-head-los-angeles-fire-starters/story?id=15274504IMPORTANT LINKS:Patreon:  https://www.patreon.com/killaforniapodPayPal:  https://www.paypal.com/paypalme/killaforniapodMerchandise:  https://www.redbubble.com/people/killaforniapod/shop?asc=uWebsite:  https://killaforniadreamingpodcast.buzzsprout.com/Facebook Group:  https://www.facebook.com/groups/1296620370450345/Facebook Page:  https://www.facebook.com/killaforniadreamingInstagram:  https://www.instagram.com/killaforniadreamingpod/?hl=enTwitter:  https://twitter.com/killaforniapodEmail:  killaforniapod@gmail.com
