Blind Item #8

In this worldwide headline making murder case there is some new evidence that has been found which looks very damning for the thirsty celebrity husband of the wife who was killed. His story and actions have never really jibed and investigators kept digging. Apparently it was a tip though that led to a revisit of timelines and and something that happened when the huge life insurance policy was originally bought. I'm also told he went through the insurance money quickly with his new extravagant lifestyle. There are only so many books and seminars he can sell but he won't cut back on his spending.

OJ?

Surrender Dorothy said...

Brittany Murphy's creepy husband?

Snifter said...

The only one I can think of is RJ and Natalie Wood, but that was a long time ago, and wouldn't mesh with "his new extravagant lifestyle."

Zelda Zonk said...

The only other one that comes to mind is Robert Blake but I don’t know if it was big enough news to be considered worldwide

Newbomb said...

I'm guessing he didn't kill the wife but maybe had her killed?

Lunch Lady said...

Brittany wasn't murdered.

Boldblonde said...

OJ was acquitted the first, he can't be prosecuted a second time for the same crime!!

Brooklyn Girl said...

If it is OJ, there is double jeopardy, so, nothing will happen to him.

Rox said...

Deceased not long after her...

Gossipjunkie said...

Oj??? I’m new to this but i am obsessed with reading this site almost daily :)

Boldblonde said...

of course Brittany was murdered! @LunchLady

Surrender Dorothy said...

Okay I don't know what I'm talking about. And I somehow missed that he also died like 8 years ago so never mind. Lol

kristaylor6663 said...

Snifter beat me to it! Wouldn't let me post Wagner is being looked onto

Gossipjunkie said...

It cant be brittany murphy since her husband is deceased therefore he isn’t exactly living a “new extravagant lifestyle”

Newbomb said...

Anna Nicole?

WickedBee said...

You sure about that?

BayAreaGirl said...

This isn't OJ. Because of the civil judgment, any money OJ earns gets redirected to the Goldmans until the full $25 million judgment is satisfied.

Saintpat said...

I’m still relatively new: what does ‘thirsty’ mean?

GingerGirl said...

Books and seminars? Thirsty husband? I’m intrigued but I have no idea and the guesses don’t fit.

Diana said...

Could it be Davey Blackburn? Although this happened in Indiana over 2 years ago, his recent wedding made the headlines in the Daily Mail. I've been following this since it happened. He is the definition of thirsty.

KJ said...

+1 for Davey Blackburn! Nice work, Diana.

Megs said...

I guessed Anna Nicole too.

T said...

OJ has sold books and "autograph sessions" which might be 'seminars'

Catsup said...

@Diana - great guess with Davey Blackburn - +1

Khaleesi said...

@Surrender Dorothy - how on earth did you miss that Simon Monjack died 5 months after Brittany, also of pneumonia?!

DDonna Tarttty said...

I'd love this to be Robert Wagner, but Natalie Wood's death was never declared a murder case, far as I can recall. OJ can't blow through the cash because of the lawsuit to the parents of the young man who was murdered. I don't know who Davey Blackburn is, so I find it hard to believe that was a "worldwide headline making murder case."

Totally at a loss here.

Sal Salington said...

"Thirsty" is slang for "intense desire for sex", at least among the kids today. I guess that's who it's used here.

BayAreaGirl said...

I'm with @Diana and the Blackburn guess. He primps a lot for a pastor.

Khaleesi said...

I thought "thirsty" meant, eager/desperate for fame?

Surrender Dorothy said...

@Khaleesi I have no idea! When I went to check on my guess and saw that I was like "where the hell was I?" Haha

Khaleesi said...

@Surrender Dorothy - now you'll fall into a black hole, learning all about it!

I'm on board with the Davey guess.

Boots said...

yeah, "pneumonia!" What a coincidence.

filmfanb said...

@DDonna Tarttty I am in agreement with you on that one. I know Wagner has been selling books and doing signings but not sure about seminars. Plus he never struck me as thirsty or have a playboy lifestyle. Ditto on OJ and I have no idea who Davey Blackburn is.

John Doe said...

Blackburn is a great guess. I never believed his story about the circumstances surrounding his wife's death. I recall him acting like Mr. Perfect throughout the whole thing. I long suspected that he set that whole thing up. But there was no proof. The police said they definitely ruled him out as a suspect in her death. He just got married again too. Kinda soon for such a young dude who claimed to have been so deeply in love with his wife.

rob ute said...

Thirsty = overly fond of alcohol, doesn't it?

Gossipjunkie said...

It can mean both, but in this case “thirsty” means desperate for fame

Mag said...

@DDonna - Enty tends to exaggerate like this. He says something made headlines worldwide or someone is/was superfamous all over the world, and I'm sitting here in the middle of Europe struggling to find a single non-US mention of the thing ort person ;)))
This one made zero headlines here, unless they were in some niche Christian magazines.

Don Kieballs said...

I'm in the US and don't remember ever hearing of Davey Blackburn. Either way, does he qualify as a celebrity?

Tim said...

Do you people even read the blinds beyond just "husband" and "wife"? This clearly can't be OJ. Books, seminars, new lifestyle, huge life insurance policy, never really jibed, etc...

Tuesdi said...

I had to look this up...only a vague recollection. Thought they found the killers, and one has already taken a plea deal.

Newbomb said...

Worldwide headlines made me think this was a bigger story.

Glue said...

Khaleesi's definition is correct. Thirsty means desperate.

In most cases nowadays, it means "pathetically desperate." It's definitely NOT a compliment.

re: the blind: I can't think of anyone where their wife passed away and the guy went nuts (hear about a lot of divorces and then men acting crazy, but not deaths). Must be someone not widely known. I'm at a complete loss for this blind.

totaji said...

Scott/Lacy Peterson?

Surrender Dorothy said...

I'm not familiar with Davey Blackburn either, is he a pirate? Off to check.

And yes @Khaleesi, I have fallen into many a black hole researching stuff that CDaN brought to my attention! I know more about celebrity pedo rings than I ever wanted to. *sad face*

Everything except his NFL pension, 400-600k a year

katsm0711 said...

Amanda Blackburn makes sense for this. I remember the story and thought there was something very strange about it and how the husband reacted. Her husband is the only one who makes sense for the “books and seminars”.
Enty seems to be stuck on church stuff lately...

346NYC said...

Davey Blackburn.
I didn't know his name but did read the story about his wife's murder.
Would not be surprised.
Charities, Religion, God...Evil always hiding in the light.

sysadmn said...

Blackburn might fit, but seems unlikely.
Three men, Jalen Watson, 21, Larry Taylor, 18 and Diano Gordon, 24, were charged with murder. In October, Watson pleaded guilty to one count of robbery and two counts of burglary, according to court records. Pleading murder down to robbery and burglary? He's testifying. The question is what he knew, and what he told prosecutors.

However, it looks like his first book is out Fall 2018 (https://daveyblackburn.com/blog/trial-and-book), and there is no mention of seminars (https://www.google.com/search?rlz=1C1GGRV_enUS751US756&ei=V4dfWsjOMZGF0QTKgJ_4DA&q=davey+blackburn+seminar&oq=davey+blackburn+seminar). He's said he won't release the book until the trials are over. If he were worried, he'd have released it as soon as possible.

Ron Lewis said...

Going old school here: Natalie Woods/Robert Wagner

just sayin' said...

Not familiar with the case but based on this "documentary" on youtube he sure looks like a lying piece of scum who killed his wife because she didn't want as much sex as he did:

The Intriguing Murder Of Amanda Blackburn Part I 

Ladyship said...

I thought the book deals backfired and no one would touch him after the “if I did it” fiasco.

RingoSkater said...

Jason Simpson did it.

Don Kieballs said...

Thank you for another trip down the rabbit hole. I'm not sure Davey Blackburn fits this blind, but now I believe he had his wife murdered or did it himself. Just looking at a couple of the sites about him makes him look very bad. And his association with Perry Noble, another controversial megachurch preacher (apparently, since I just learned about him too today). I'm climbing out of that rabbit hole, however, because I can see how easily I'll get lost on those pages.

BayAreaGirl said...

@totaji - Scott's on death row, b/c his mistress help put him there.

@joshg g - Yes, b/c pensions are exempt from civil judgments as a matter of law.

So far, the Blackburn guess makes the most sense. They're not famous, but I do recall that story being everywhere when it broke.

lefthandscissors said...

@Mag

Don't worry- I'm *FROM* Indiana (and my family still live in Indianapolis) but live in England... and I don't even know who the hell Davey Blackburn is. Some of these are hard for me (esp. the athlete blinds.. unless it's euro football, then... nope..).. you're not alone!! <3

Elle said...

I guess it couldn’t be David Miscavage and wife Shelly? She’s still just a missing person and he doesn’t seem to be hurting for money. I’ve never heard of Blackburn before this...

Dana said...

Wanting a lot of attention

pinot grigio said...

I'm from Indy and the Davey Blackburn theory would cut deep here. I think he is innocent BUT the way he gushed about his new wife and showed photos of the wedding to the press sickened me. I feel like it was too soon OR he should have not publicized it. UGH.

Sign Name Below said...

Gabe Watson

Digitalis said...

Brittany Murphy-Monjack was an attendant at Chris Cornell's wedding. She said or did something that made Vicky K angry. Don't be too sure she & Simon weren't murdered. The K family has gotten away with it before.

JWill said...

This may be Davey Blackburn, but he didn't become a "celebrity" until after (or because of) his wife's death, right? Does that matter? That being said, I always thought he was somehow involved in his wife's murder.

carolinalily said...

Davey Blackburn works for sure. And based on this VERY lengthy, self-absorbed, blog post, he calls his story "internationally known", so enty could be referring to Blackburn's self-description of his story.

Thirsty - as in "I need something to drink...maybe some OJ"

Revival said...

I make it Wood/Wagner.

Definitely world wide news.

Rumors last year a grand jury was starting up.

Wagner has published books (including a new one out in 2014 and another last year) and he's a pitchman (reverse mortgage seminars).

As for thirsty, he (and Wood) was famous for being big time drunks.

rosie riveter said...

No Tim, we don't.
We just wait for Tricia to guess and fill in another 30+ comments with gibberish.

Rosenthal said...

cant be Davey Blackburn, over in the UK here, i'd never heard of him before now... Certainly no way near Worldwide News.

Clarke's World said...

I agree with Diana. Davey Blackburn. Went from a $135K house to a $455K McMansion. Traded in his 1999 Honda for a brand spanking new loaded Chevy SUV from Hare Chevrolet. Buys new clothes non-stop, always on vacation, golfing, going out to eat. He resented her for not being uber sexual, (Davey LOVES his porn!), was NOT happy when he found out she was pregnant again, & his "church" was struggling. The odds of a murder happening under the exact same circumstances is 1:NEVER.

just sayin' said...

I posted a youtube video about this story above if anyone's interested. God the pain on that woman's face as her husband expounds on "God's mandate for a woman to submit to her husband's needs". And how he goes on and on about how marriage sucks and what a waste of money his weeding was, during his sermons. He looks like a sociopath to me.

jessorella said...

Natalie Wood was my first thought. No idea who Blackburn is!

Unknown said...

Off the wall guess, maybe, but has anyone considered Patton Oswalt? I super don’t want it to be him, I’m a fan and his story is so heartbreaking, but his his wife died at home in her sleep, his new relationship/wedding made the news, and he has a Netflix special.

rosie riveter said...

Wow. I would of kept my 99 Honda. Who trades that in for a brand new CHEVY? That's the crime here

If this were Old School, I'd say Claus and Sunny von Bulow

Bella said...

Thirsty = Wants Attention. As in thirsty for attention.

MatineeIdolx said...

https://daveyblackburn.com/blog/she-said-yes. I had to look up Davey Blackburn. In this blog post he claims himself that his story is internationally know.

mary lamb said...

This is absolutely Davey Blackburn. I read everything possible at the time. I hope the little shit fries.

I came back. said...

Sabre said...

Davey Blackburn was reported in Australia. I had to Google the name, but immediately recognised the case. I even remember thinking at the time that it must have been the husband & was surprised when they arrested 2 others for it.

Sd Auntie said...

Her house was full of black mold. That is why her husband died. Ed McMahon had the same thing and it killed his dog and affected his health. It's no joke. Being a homeowner, I am hyper aware of this and have had pneumonia due to water damage to my unit. Yes, you CAN die.

Been following the Blackburn thing for a while. The practiced ease with which he publicly forgave "whoever" killed her (during his glamorous whirlwind interview excursion) is at major odds with a message he "preached" once about the angry grudge he developed against the wife when she dented his precious backyard grill. FFS, dude left the front door unlocked himself, and whoops - home invasion, wife dead. What are the odds? The whole thing is filthy to the core. Pastor Selfie is guilty as shit.

MichiganMama59 said...

OJ's pension is not part of the civil judgment in favor of the Goldmans. And he has been partying is ass off since he got out.

MichiganMama59 said...

I hope Revival is right. Beautiful Natalie was truly a A+++ star.

I can't say that about anyone else currently in entertainment

Samantha M. said...

Reading backward so late to the party, but Davey Blackburn DID have at least one seminar at his church. It was called Financial Peace University, the Dave Ramsey thing. It was in late September. So it could fit for Enty's description.

There are several of us here from Indy. Some of us even know each other in real life.
