This article delves into the shocking, still unsolved 1978 bludgeoning murder of beloved sitcom star Bob Crane, best known as the wisecracking lead on the 1960s TV show "Hogan's Heroes." It explores the bizarre crime scene, violent nature of Crane's death, key suspects, and the troubling double life centered around addiction and compulsion that the actor led away from the public eye. Over 40 years later, theories still swirl regarding who killed Crane and why, with some implicating a jealous friend while others point to the dark underworld of Hollywood itself. The twists of the case continue to confound investigators and true crime fans alike.

There are many errors in your episode. 1. John Carpenter was not Bob Crane's best friend, but rather, a hanger on, from whom Bob was trying to distance himself in the weeks leading up to his murder. 2. Bob's father was not an electronics technician. He was the manager of a flooring shop in Stamford, CT. 3. Bob never broadcast sports during his radio career. Bob's radio career started in Hornell, NY, in 1950, followed by WBIS in Bristol, CT, in 1951, and WLIZ in Bridgeport, CT, also in 1951. Bob's radio career took off at WICC in Bridgeport, where he was hailed as one of the leading radio personalities in New England, pulling in a 17.5% market share. This is what caught the attention of KNX-CBS Radio in Hollywood in 1956. They offered him the morning drive slot at KNX, where he remained for the next 9 years, including during his time on The Donna Reed Show and the first year of filming Hogan's Heroes. 4. Bob was NEVER a part-time DJ at KNX. He was hired full-time right from the start. He stayed close to radio for the rest of his life as well, filling in at KMPC in Los Angeles, volunteering with the Armed Forces Radio Network, and returning to WICC to help the station celebrate its 50th anniversary. 5. Bob had a no-acting clause baked into his KNX contract, which went for 5 years, expiring in 1961. This is when you start to see Bob appear as a guest, first on The Dick Van Dyke Show, and then The Donna Reed Show, after which he was given the semi-regular role as Dr. Dave Kelsey. 6. Bob met Anne Terzian while in school around 1942. They were high school sweethearts. They met when he was 14 and she was 12 while still kids in school. 7. Anne and Bob split in 1969, not 1959. Bob actually left her, not the other way around. Their son Bobby was born in Stamford, CT. Debbie and Karen were born in California. 8. Bob did indeed have an addiction, one he was trying to overcome with the help of a counselor. He was a complex person, not someone to be judged based on the "low-hanging fruit" of sex and murder. Your listeners are being given information that is without perspective at best and completely wrong at worst.
