25 - The untold story of the Menendez family & murder case
There’s a book about a case I did some reporting on way back in 1989. The author, Robert Rand, has spent decades looking into this case, and he’s even talked to Lyle and Erik, and he has a lot to say about the Menendez murders.
The Menendez saga has captivated the American public since 1989. The killing of José and Kitty Menendez on a quiet Sunday evening in Beverly Hills didn’t make the cover of People magazine until the arrest of their sons seven months later, and the case developed an intense cult following. When the first Menendez trial began in July 1993, the public was convinced that Lyle and Erik were a pair of greedy rich kids who had killed loving, devoted parents.
But the real story remained buried beneath years of dark secrets, until now.
