and used it to help other people Rick says, “The way I look at it is if they have all the information they
need to make good decisions, then they'll make the right decision. I tell them, 'If you're going to sell
drugs, be prepared to go to prison or possibly get killed. When you go to prison, your girlfriend and your

Growing up, Susan Berman's childhood was idyllic. She was Las Vegas Mob royalty, the daughter of a Mob boss who ran the Flamingo and furnished his only child with anything money could buy. But halfway through her childhood, dream exploded. Susan's father died without warning during a routine surgery. Next, Susie Berman's mother died by her own hand the next year when she overdosing on drugs. Susie was whisked away from the only home she'd ever known, parentless and living with an uncle and his family and sent away to boarding school. Fast forward to college where Susan met her soul mate, Robert Durst. They became best friends and each other's confidants. Durst went to work for his wealthy father at the Durst Organization in Manhattan while Susan became a journalist, writing about women's cultural issues for newspapers and magazines. She followed Durst to New York, where he married the beautiful Kathie McCormack. Then, Kathie disappeared and Susan stood by her best friend Robert, despite suspicions that Durst had caused the demise of his wife. Twenty years later, as police closed in on Durst and reopened the case, seeking to interview his best friends, Susan was murdered. Few clues were found. Who did it and why? Was it the Mob? A trusted friend? Murder in Beverly Hills (an updated, revised edition of Murder of a Mafia Daughter) answers those questions. Exclusive information about the investigation is included in this edition, as well as new interviews of police detectives, Susan's friends, family and colleagues, and new information about Robert Durst is revealed. MURDER IN BEVERLY HILLS-The Mob-style Execution of Susan Berman, Her Crime Boss Father, and The Deadly Secret She Took to Her Grave-Cathy Scot
Cathy Scott joins us on the CL Gammon Show. Cathy Scott is a tour de force in true crime as a Los Angeles Times bestselling author and an award-winning investigative journalist. She attracted international acclaim for her classic true-crime biographies, The Killing of Tupac Shakur and The Murder of Biggie Smalls. Her eighth book, The Millionaire's Wife, was released March 27, 2012. by St. Martin's Press about the 1990 contract murder of George Kogan on an Upper East Side Manhattan street in broad daylight. Fast-forward nearly 20 years, and Barbara Kogan, George's estranged wife, admitted to hiring a hit man to have her husband gunned down. Her ninth book - Murder in Beverly Hills (the re-release and update of Murder of a Mafia Daughter) - was published in November 2013 about the unsolved murder of writer Susan Berman. The book includes exclusive information from investigators and new information about their prime suspect. A memoir of a former drug kingpin, Freeway Rick Ross: The Untold Autobiography, which Cathy co-wrote with Ross, was released in June 2014 to a standing-room audience at its Los Angeles launch. Her latest project is the Dawn Viens case. Dawn, 37, disappeared on Oct. 18, 2010, after leaving Thyme Contemporary Cafe, in Lomita, California, that she and her husband ran. David Viens told police that he and his wife had argued. She didn't take her cell phone or stash of cash, and her car was later towed as evidence when she did not return. The husband, after throwing himself off a cliff -- and surviving -- admitted to killing his wife but has not told police where Dawn's body is.
The beloved son of Holocaust survivors, forty-nine-year-old George Kogan grew up in Puerto Rico before making his way to New York City, where he enjoyed great success as an antiques and art dealer. Until one morning in 1990, when George was approached on the street by an unidentified gunman—and was killed in cold blood.
Before the shooting, George had been on the way to his girlfriends’s apartment. Mary-Louise Hawkins was twenty-eight years old and had once worked as George’s publicist. But ever since they became lovers, George’s estranged wife, Barbara, was consumed with bitterness. As she and George hashed out a divorce, Barbara fueled her anger into greed—especially after a judge turned down her request for $5,000 a week in alimony.
Barbara, who stood to collect $4.3 million in life insurance, was immediately suspected in George’s death. But it would take authorities almost twenty years to uncover a link between her lawyer, Manuel Martinez, and the hitman who killed George. In 2010, Martinez agreed to testify against his client…and Barbara eventually pled guilty to charges of grand larceny, conspiracy to commit murder, and murder in the first degree.

The Real Truth is design to teach the bible as revealed by God the Father through Jesus Christ by the Holy Spirit. All of the affairs of God must come by the way of the Holy Spirit teaching through anointed men/women of God the Father through Jesus Christ by the Holy Spirit. Each Christian is required to learn how to listen to the words that comes from God the Father and Jesus Christ by the teaching of bthe Holy Spirit. If any person is going to effectively learn the the ways of God the Father and Jesus Christ it must come by way of the Holy Spirit. I pray that every person listen to this broadcast will develop a heart for God the Father through Jesus Christ by the Holy Spirit. As we Christians listen to the Holy Spirit it will bring about an unitifed body of Jesus Christ who said he would build his church upon the rock of reveal truth that comes from the mouth of God the Father. In addition, he pray that Father God would send the Holy Spirit to lead and guide His saint into all truths. This is a group of born again believers in God the Father through Jesus Christ by the Holy Spirit. Every Christian has confessed Jesus Christ as Lord and believed that God the Father raised Him (Jesus Christ) from the dead by the Holy Spirit. It is the responsibily of every Christian to proclaim to those in darkness the gospel of Jesus Christ when he/she has been empowered by the Holy Spirit. I pray that this radio program will teach believers how to live like Jesus Christ who does always seek to please God the Father. As we come to God the Father through Jesus Christ by the Holy Spirit we become new creatures and old things are pasted away and all things become brand new. Jesus became sin so we could become righteous before God the Father by the empowerment of the Holy Spirit. Thank God the Father through Jesus Christ by the Holy Spirit for delivering us from the power of darkness and translating us into the light of of Jesus Christ. Amen! I love you! W. L. Scott

Beloved around the world as a captivating live performer, Cheryl shied away from making records for nearly a decade. Cheryl Barnes harbors fond memories of music’s presence throughout her early life. “My father, Calvert Barnes, played music 24 hours a day in the house from his collection of old 78s and LPs – all the big bands, all the singers, all the jazz. Then on the radio he enjoyed the rich beautiful melodies of Mantovani and the 101 strings. No rock n’ roll allowed in the house!” Raised Catholic, Cheryl – unlike many Black singers - did not grow up in gospel yet sought and loved that and ALL music just the same. In 2014, Ms. Barnes returns with her fourth and finest album Listen to This, produced by Rahn Coleman and featuring her husband Phil Cabasso on piano, saxophonists Rickey Woodard and Pete Christlieb, pianists John Hammond and Joel Scott, and trumpeter Nolan Shaheed. Ms. Barnes is the quintessential performer, wowing audiences worldwide with her unerring sense for creating and sustaining a musical and personal rapport, be it within intimate club settings or commanding concert stages. The lady has shared the stage with Quincy Jones, Wynton Marsalis, Lou Rawls, J.J. Johnson and Marilyn McCoo & Billy Davis Jr.
