Four For Friday - The Coverup

Back in the day there was a murder. It involved an actor who was probably B+ list at the time, but everyone knew him. Solid character actor. Everyone knew he did it, but kept giving him work. Not as much, but enough to keep him going. The actor ended up killing himself right before the police were going to arrest him again after new evidence was given to them. What was the new evidence? A witness to the murder. One who had stayed silent for several years about the murder because the person thought they would be charged too. For years after the murder, the witness had huge drinking and drug issues because of it. The stress was killing them so they finally went to the police. How had this person been a witness? She had been there the night of the killing having sex with the actor. Who is the witness? A B+ list actress who was more famous then, but all of you know. All of you.

@MD +1 - the murder was of his girlfriend,Charemon Jonovich.

so did the girlfriend find him with the A/B+ list actress and in a rage he killed her?

+1 MD

"Having acquired a reputation as a skilled character actor in the 1980s and 1990s, Pastorelli's career went into decline after the death of his girlfriend under mysterious circumstances at his home in 1999. He died of a narcotic overdose in 2004.[1]"

Brayson87 said...

"Pastorelli was found dead at his home in the Hollywood Hills on March 8, 2004, from a narcotics overdose.[9] At the time of his death, Pastorelli had been forewarned that authorities were planning on arresting him for further questioning. A review of the original evidence of the March 1999 shooting of his girlfriend Charemon Jonovich resulted in her cause of death being reclassified a homicide, and Pastorelli was identified as a prime suspect.[9]"

Definitely pastorelli but the actress is not Glenn close.
She is at least A list, probably permanent, more famous now than ever and doesn’t have a drug problem.
So we are looking for a middling actress whose career took a nosedive due to drugged, drunken behavior around 2000.

MountainMama said...

Do you think the actress could be Heather Locklear?

DontQuitYourDayJob said...

Uma Thurman? She was in his last movie, Be Cool.

Jeff said...

+1 Sandybrook

Farmgirl said...

That was my first thought as well

Lucky13 said...

Sarah Michelle Gellar?

bunny honey said...

Wow. Never heard of this but will be doing some checking out though.

Actress: Murphy Brown (Candice Bergen)

MDAnderson said...

He was in a movie with Natasha Lyonne before the death of the girlfriend.

Do Tell said...

George Reeves came to find for whatever reason.

Do Tell said...

*mind

DontQuitYourDayJob said...

Natasha was not "way more famous" then.

MeliticusBee said...

Neve Campbell.

Alf Landon said...

I don't know about the drugs and booze part, but I was thinking Amber Benson -famous for Buffy, then dropped off, started working more after Pastorelli died. She had guested on Cracker in 1999,

MyMyMy said...

maybe Tara Reid for the B+ list actress?

texasrose said...

This could be Natsha Lyonne. At that time she had just starred in Slums of Beverly Hills and American Pie movies and was pretty well known. It is arguable that she was bigger then than now.

Stephie said...

Rose McGowan?

texasrose said...

@ MDanderson & Dontquityourdayjob

Vodoudo said...

I doubt it was Bobby. As someone that knew him VERY well...the shooting was accidental. I won't get into the details as I was told but at the time of the shooting his infant daughter was sleeping in the 2nd bedroom of his very moderate sized 2 bedroom off Beachwood. Doesn't fit that he would have side piece over at his house with his infant daughter sleeping there not to mention that Charemon was around their baby 24/7.

My guess...this is Peter Green.

Serena Rodriguez said...

I was just thinking her.

Serena Rodriguez said...

I don’t think he’s dead. At least not that I can find.

Vodoudo said...

Serena, you're right he's not dead.

MeliticusBee said...

It’s buried a couple of pages past front on google but if you dig a bit, the cops totally thought pastorelli was guilty and he had been told they changed the cause of death from suicide to murder. He was under imminent threat of arrest.

Not saying it’s not her but Natasha Lyon is not someone “you all know “
I was thinkin Neve Campbell because she became a pariah about that time AND someone has worked really hard to scrub the internet of evidence of all of that...which might go along with “informant”.
But I guess it could be Rose too.

Strangertruths12 said...

@mountainmama Heather Locklear was my first guess, too since around 2000 is when Melrose Place really fell off and she didn't do a lot after.

E said...

Peter Green is still alive

DCThrowback said...

Shannon Elizabeth for the actress? American Pie came out in '99.

Notagoodscreenname said...

@MeliticusBee His Wikipedia page says that

Veronica Volta said...

Are you drunk or high!?

Vita said...

Well, the timing would fit for Natassha's troubled period...

hunter said...

Neve Campbell totally disappeared, good guess.

BRAD PITT said...


Robert Pastorelli was atrocious in 'Striking Distance'

orangesoda said...


why would everyone know Neve Campbell? What did I miss?

Rachel said...

I got the impression Neve Campbell had some kind of dark relationship with John Cusack, and maybe that's why she fell off the radar?

Melody Clark said...

Pastorelli... such a sad end.

Alejandra Reyes said...

Heath ledger
Olson twin

Dustin Lane said...

No idea who the witness actress is but how did he land & keep Glenn Close for so many years?! Daaamn! He also dated that tall Amazon wild black woman too but not sure she would be B+ list.
