Four For Friday - Cold Case Reopened

It took almost two decades to get another lead, but recently there was big one. Almost two decades ago the FBI was closing in on this permanent A list showrunner. Why? The showrunner was big into child porn and was known for using his studio sets after hours to film child porn. Parents would bring their children for auditions and be forced to wait in a staging area by the entrance of the studio. Meanwhile, the children would be transported to the stage where the showrunner recorded his show and then two to three hours of filming would begin. There was no cloud back then and the files were really too large for computers. Copies were made and distributed to those who had purchased the items and the originals were all kept for two years and then destroyed. The originals were kept at all times with the showrunner in his briefcase. When he was abruptly killed, those originals were gone and the case against him. No one was talking. For almost two decades no one has talked because all the records and originals were gone with him. Without proof, they were all in the clear. No one even knew who was on the sets when the child porn was recorded. Until now. One of the victims is in the television industry and she was working on a set and recognized one of the photographers because of a very unique tattoo. She remembers seeing it back then, and had an instant flashback when she saw it on a set last month. She notified the FBI who confronted the man and he has been talking a lot. They won't get all of the people involved, but they will get some. The showrunner was careful that only fake names were used while working and they tried to hide themselves as much as possible. No one even knows who the original buyers were either because those records went up in flames too. Finally, though, some justice.

I don't know but somehow related to Charlie Sheen?

Dahling said...

Could this be Jose Menendez?

J said...

Yeah but no one should tell the cops about sex crimes I thought.

Thia said...

David Angell died in 9/11 and was a TV producer and screenwriter.

Permanent A-list showrunner: Aaron Spelling?

sandybrook said...

I cant find any famous producer, tv or otherwise, that was killed about 20 years ago.

Super Comic Fun Time! said...

I like the David Angell for this. Spelling was diagnosed with oral cancer in 2001 and died in 2006 so it doesn't seem like that would fit with a sudden death.

Menendez was murdered in 1989 when the Internet was mostly AOL, Compuserve, and bulletin boards.

9/11 explains what would have happened to the evidence in the briefcase and why it was never recovered.

Disillusioned Fan said...

I like David Angell for this, especially considering the "up in flames" comment (one would imagine he carried his briefcase on the flight) but why would parents bring their kids in to audition for him? Unless he had a fake project specifically for these purposes?

LooksLikeCRicci said...

Crap. I missed the "abruptly killed" line. My bad. Scratch the Aaron Spelling guess.

David Angell fits. Especially with the "up in flames" comment.

Queen of Pith said...

I am also going with David Angell.

He was "abruptly killed" in a plane crash on 9/11/2001 which was 17 years ago - close to two decades. Of course computers were around then and used regularly but would not be able to hold large files.

He would be permanent A-List due to being an Emmy award winner for Frasier and Cheers.

Hamid said...

That's a disgusting smear. He was a good man and his show Frasier hardly ever had any children in the cast.

Wasn't Angell a writer along with his wife who also died in the crash?
He was no A-lister--an A-lister from that era would be someone like David Chase.

Hamid said...

David Chase....is....not......dead.

I really despair sometimes at the guesses people make that appear to indicate either an inability to read or think. One blind referred to "a poor man's BTS" and someone literally posted "BTS?" There'll be blinds about foreign born stars and people will guess Bradley Cooper or Sylvester Stallone. There's a blind today about someone "who isn't an actor or director" and a reader has posted Steven Spielberg.

But my absolute favourites are the blinds about dead people and some readers post the names of stars who are alive. In the thread about a deceased actor supposedly recruited by the CIA to see if they could manufacture a celebrity, someone guessed Chuck Norris.

People, READ the blinds before scrambling to be first to post a guess. I swear to fuck, one of these days there'll be a blind about a dead actress from the 50s and someone will post "Christian Bale?"

You idiot. No wonder youre single.

Hire Christian Bale for Bond!!

s.s. said...

Hamid, I used Chase as AN EXAMPLE of an A-list showrunner from the late 90's era--I never said he was dead--you are the dense fool who goes on an epic rant after misreading a post and getting everything wrong, congrats...

Brayson87 said...

So a few of the henchmen are getting caught almost two decades later, doesn't really feel like the light is winning.

Sarah said...

I just read that Angels wife worked at a facility that helped abused children. 😐

I'm Outraged! said...

Wow, David Angell having his reputation smeared by bored cretins on a gossip site with absolutely no basis beyond he died suddenly, and his late wife helped abused children, pathetic.

drkdragon777 said...

Yup, board trolls also tried to smear Kat Von D's marriage and say she's being beaten,which anyone who paid any attention would know is not true. They just dislike her because she has tattoos and think she's a satanist

Hamid said...

I'm Outraged!:

Absolutely. Angell and his wife were impeccable people. Some idiots just love the idea of saying the worst about others. It doesn't even make sense because children hardly ever appeared on Frasier. Literally two at the most per season.

Unknown said...

for those who think it's angell.... fake last name?...

... Connecting dots.

To those who are angry about names being considered... I always wonder how you ended up here? Why you stay? There are only two readers on this site.

1. - 97% - The Detectives - Will throw out names but would never publicly announce someone as guilty without proof (this forum doesn't count as public, I haven't met one person in real life who knew of this site)
2. - 3% - The Few Angry & Defensive - Here for disinformation and misdirection? How can you be so sure of their private lives unless you know these people personally?

Hillsides is the child center the Angells were involved in.

Fallen Angell. If he did only use fake names, this last name is fake too.

The Shows - The lack of children within the casts (Wings, Cheers, Fraiser) is almost odd.

He worked for the Pentagon.

Unrelated Discovery when reading all of this..

"Dr. Lois Lee is the world’s leading expert in rescuing child sex trafficking victims. As founder and president of Children of the Night — the only comprehensive program in North America devoted to saving children forced into prostitution — she has blazed a trail for social service providers, law enforcement, legislators and researchers across the globe.

A grant from the Playboy Foundation in 1979 enabled Lee to establish a Children of the Night telephone hotline. Soon after, she created the first Hollywood street outreach program, and later, its first walk-in crisis center, which became a model for similar programs all over the country."

Grant from Playboy for a "safe" hotline for prostitutes? Yeah.

Unknown said...

P.S. As for the unrelated discovery of Playboy x Children of the Night...

I worked for Playboy and can promise you that it's a prostitution ring. They tried to keep me on board as the Madam but keep me in the dark as to the depth of it all. The "feminist angle" is all for show. The 97% of this forum can see.

rosie riveter said...

I rarely REALLYREALLY like posts.
But I REALLYREALLY like what you posted here.

MattDaddy said...

Justice is coming, yes sir, any minute now. You can bet your kid's college find on it!

Kim said...

The level of depravity it takes to hurt children isn't going to disappear after a case is closed and most of those involved are still doing the same. Makes you wonder where they are now twenty years later and how many kids they've hurt.

Juli T said...

David Angell's brother, Rev. Kenneth Angell, known pedophile. Fits.

Tiff said...

Ss. How the hell is david angel not a list--frasier??, wings, cheers???

mary lamb said...

Hiding in plain sight.

I also worked for Playboy Enterprises as an executive assistant to the director in the advertising dept. It was a tough road to hoe, unless you were willing to be a ho.
Being groomed for a higher position, I was asked if I would go out with the (married) publisher of one of their magazines. The same guy I bought his wife's Christmas presents for.
Right before my six month review (that same afternoon), he asked me yet again if I would entertain having dinner with him. Told him to fuck himself - so in effect, I quit.
Playboy had nothing to do with women's rights or empowerment.

Viking Song said...

That's because you're a cancerous pig, J. The majority of victims DO go to the police unless they hail from backgrounds where the victim is punished. In the case of celebrities, it's not always made public and, in certain cases, the police never bothered investigating the allegation.

You comment as if you know every single rape victim and know whether they went to the police or not. You don't. You have to be one of the most arrogant, ignorant posters on here.

J said...

I have good and bad qualities, Viking Song, but I'm not in favor of seducing one's own stepchildren. You are, vocally. Shame on you.

He said somebody LIKE David Chase, num nuts.

That's CDAN in a nutshell, always has been.
