May 10, 2019

A North Carolina man has been charged with the murder of a top Hollywood TV director in a case that baffled cops for 34 years. Barry Crane produced and directed some of television’s most iconic shows, including “Dallas,” “Hawaii Five-O,” “Mission: Impossible” and “Wonder Woman.” The 57-year-old director was found dead in his garage by a housekeeper at his townhouse in the Studio City neighborhood of Los Angeles in 1985. He was found naked and wrapped in bedsheets, and he had been bludgeoned.
