Wednesday Super Sleuth – Dead Air


photo by martwork

Television shows often kill off radio DJs in their booths, while sitting at their microphones. It’s become almost cliche for the shock jocks to wind up shot while on the air for offending an angry listener.

But in 2006, a Denver-area DJ and radio personality from the ’80s was actually a victim. After being missing for about two weeks, his body was found in the waters near Santa Catalina Island off the coast of Los Angeles. He’d been shot once in the head.

Who would want to murder the famous voice beloved by Denver listeners?

  1. One of the DJ’s old radio partners, who was jealous of his success. The man tracked the DJ down, asking to borrow money. When he refused, the man lashed out, shooting the DJ and dumping his body in the ocean.
  2. The DJ’s wife, who had been having an affair. The DJ took his wife on a vacation to try to revive their ailing relationship. While on Santa Catalina Island, she arranged for her partner to attack her husband on a deserted beach. Then they dragged his body into the ocean.
  3. The DJ’s roommate, who had been swindling money from the inheritance left to the DJ by his father. The roommate pretended to be an investment banker, but was in reality, skimming money out of the DJ’s accounts. The two went to a marina, intending to go sailing, but the DJ wasn’t seen alive again.

So, who do you think silenced the famous voice? Leave your guess in the comments section. Maybe you’ll be this month’s Super Sleuth.

    I think it’s the roommate. Skimming money is something people do if they think they can get away with it.

    I think it was number three. I’m not sure if they were roommates, but he killed the DJ over money he had skimmed from his father’s estate. Fun, fun! 🙂 By the way…..thanks for the gift of books and the Amazon gift card! 🙂
