No the year mclardy hesitantly answered two thousand one trying to get him to commit to specifics Schwartz back asked if the meeting had occurred early or late in the year, but McLarty did not recall to further demonstrate his mental deterioration shorts. Back asked mclardy, quote, while this case was pending and while you were under the influence of drugs. You thought the police? We're trying to get you mclardy said. Yes, Schwartz back continued quote while you were under the influence of drugs. You actually thought people were tunneling under your house again McLarty? Agreed. He also admitted that during that time he believed his house car and cell phone were bugged, satellite dishes were tracking his movements. His family was conspiring against him that lead Detective Ronald ITO was after him that he saw alien spaceships and that he could read other people's minds shorts back punctuated the exchange by asking mclardy when he had entered a rehab program for drugs at the Glendale.

His testimony was hampered by the fact that for seven months during the two thousand one investigation Duffy head insisted that he had nothing to do with Robert Blake. It wasn't until you served with a grand jury summons to testify that he actually admitted any connection to the actor once. That happened the details. He provided were the same as mclarty's except that Blake had offered Duffy even more money for the deed one hundred thousand dollars. According to Duffy, Blake wanted to be on the scene when Bonnie died so that he could watch Duffy warned him that. There were sure to be cops on the scene asking him questions. Blake coolly replied, quote, don't worry about that. I'm an actor. Shellie Samuels asked Duffy to explain why he had lied to police in two thousand one he said he knew what happened to snitch is he'd be a dead duck. But Schwartz back tried to discredit this in his cross examination. How could the jury be sure that he was lying then and not lying now. Duffy, shrugged dismissively. They couldn't be.

In fact, police had been able to piece together a record of their conversations the states next witness lead detective Ron ITO described on the stand how they had been able to track down the phone card from Duffy's grand jury testimony.

There is a better way to deal with things and quote detective ITO asked Margarita verify Blake's claims about the pregnancy. Was it true that Bonnie had intentionally become pregnant contrary to Blake's wishes Marjorie admitted that? Bonnie had harboured the fantasy of marrying a celebrity for most of her life when presented with the chance to finally bag Hollywood man, she would have done whatever necessary including getting knocked up. She tried to justify her sister's behavior explaining that Bonnie's childhood was to Mullis their father was a drunk and molested her. Their mother was no better a dour woman who referred to the children as stupid and ugly. She abandoned Bonnie at age eleven sending her to live with their maternal grandmother. It made Bonnie feel like no one wanted or loved her Marjorie described their grandmother Grammy hall as tight fisted. She only bought secondhand clothes and didn't allow Bonnie to bathe daily thinking it was a waste of water. Bonnie was teased at school for her old worn out clothes and rat's nest hair. It made her all the more determined to prove the bullies wrong by becoming famous star or at the very least adjacent to a famous star. It took Marjorie a minute to recount for ITO. All of the celebrities Bonnie had chased over the years. She spent the summer she turned twenty in Graceland trying to catch a glimpse of Elvis, but then he died the next year in nineteen seventy seven Dean Martin in the early nineties before he died.

She wanted to write her obituary and what headshots to use for the magazines ITO asked. Why Bonnie thought Blake was after her Marjorie said it came straight from the horse's mouth apparently the night before her murder. Had gotten into an argument. He told Bonnie, quote, I've got a bullet with your name on it. And quote, Bonnie insisted that she wasn't just some Bimbo. He could push around. She said, quote, I must be kind of smart.

Now, she had Rosie it worked out for everyone. Edo asked Blake to walk him through the events of the evening. They went to dinner, at vitals, Blake reported that before they left the house Bonnie asked him to bring along one of his guns.

He needed more information and more manpower ITO reached out to another detective, Brian ten. Endle- to join the investigation. Together, the detective spoke with Bonnie's younger sister in Dover.

She had plenty of reasons to think someone was following her. This was probably the work of some guy. She built revenge ITO wrote down the theory, but also noted how quickly Blake turned from visceral grief moaning on the sidewalk to trash talking the deceased mother of his child.

They had already discovered a gun in a dumpster around the corner and believed it was the murder weapon, but the World War Two era nine millimeter pistol had no serial number which made it practically impossible to trace back to the owner. Etoh noted that sixty eight year old Robert Blake was in hysterics three times. He asked for a glass of water drained it then puked it out onto the grass.

Bonnie would claim she was short on rent or her cat was sick or her car needed to be repaired. If they would just be so kind as to send her a few hundred bucks, Bonnie would fix her car and immediately drive to meet them, then she described in graphic detail how vigorously she would thank them for their help. Though. Of course, she never did show up her next letter would say she got lost or ran out of gas money or the repairs cost more than she expected. If only they could send a bit more money or even better a credit card number Robert Blake told detective ITO that he didn't know about his wife's letter service until after they married in November of two thousand Bonnie had only recently relocated to Los Angeles. So they could raise their eleven month old daughter Rosie together. Ito ask Blake to describe his relationship with Bonnie how had they met. The pair were first introduced it.
