It turns out, before his death, Danny Casolaro was investigating what he believed was a vast conspiracy involving a shadowy criminal organization he called The Octopus. Was his death a suicide as police ruled? Or was he murdered?

In 1932, actress Peg Entwistle made a name for herself in Hollywood. But it wasn’t because of any movie role. Peg gained worldwide infamy by¬†jumping off the Hollywood sign to commit suicide. And even long after Peg’s death, people claim to still see her ghost wandering throughout the Hollywood Hills.
