  • Drag Queen Dorian Had A Skeleton (Literally) In Her Closet
    (True Crime April 2023)

    When she died, the Ballroom world mourned the passing of Dorian Corey. Then a body was discovered in the closet at her apartment and suspicion grew that she’d been a killer... In October 1993, Lois Taylor was still coming to terms with the death of her close friend and ally, Dorian Corey, the famous drag artist. It was barely two months since Dorian had passed away that August. Opening the doors to her Harlem apartment for the buyers made Lois shiver. The moment that she did, however, those buyers instantly made a beeline for the closets, expressing their admiration and awe out loud. “Wow, look at this!” “Majestic!” The joy and delight radiated through the… more »

  • Why Jemma Beheaded Her Friend
    (Master Detective April 2023)

    It was a routine call for AA man Lee Gardin. It was late June, 2021, and he’d had a typically busy day helping tourists driving to and from their holidays in Devon.

    (True Detective April 2023)

    It was a little before 4.30 on the afternoon of Saturday, July 21st, 1990. The sun shone down out of a clear blue sky. It was stiflingly hot, but it wasn’t just the weather that was making the man sweat. Responsibility for that lay elsewhere. As the motor purred quietly, the man turned and looked at the two women in the car. One sat next to him and the other was in the back seat. He did not speak to them. There would have been little point in that. The women wouldn’t have responded to anything he might have said. It wasn’t that they couldn't hear him or were antisocial. The reason for their silence… more »

  • Was Marilyn Murdered?
    (Murder Most Foul No. 127)

    She was the blonde-haired American sex symbol whose fame eclipsed her film-star status and whose life came to a sudden, tragic end at the age of just 36. Marilyn Monroe’s death at her Los Angeles home in August 1962 shocked the world. Today, the iconic actor's life and mysterious death, supposedly of a drug overdose, are still making headlines, the latest following the release on Netflix of the absorbing – and controversial – film Blonde, starring Ana De Armas.
