Doug Crandell  "Fear Came to Town: The Santa Claus, Georgia Murders"
How is a person supposed to react after a horrible, horrible family tragedy?  There is no right way, and however, a person goes about living their lives in the face of abject tragedy, it's impossible not to sympathize.  There can't be a worse situation for someone in such a situation.  Former American Idol finalist and Oscar-winner Jennifer Hudson endured the deaths of family members and even worse, so did the public eye.  There are so many others have experienced such tragic events and are never known.  Such is the case with in the small town of Santa Claus, Georgia.  A small town where the streets are name Candy Cane Road and December Drive and Christmas was the life blood of the people, and the holiday spirit lived all year around… UNTIL JERRY SCOTT HEIDLER CAME TO TOWN.  Years ago, Danny and Kim Daniels had taken in Jerry Scott Heidler as a foster child. Kim had grown up within the foster system herself, and she sympathized with the troubled boy. But it soon as became clear that Heidler's problems were far more disturbing than they had thought - and they cut him from their lives.  One terrible night in December 1997, Heidler broke into the home of his former foster family and with methodical madness shot Danny and Kim, teenage Jessica, and eight-year-old Bryant. He then kidnapped and brutalized the three surviving children, abandoning them on a remote dirt road in the dead of winter.  This is the chilling true story of a remorseless sociopath who destroyed the family that tried to rescue him, the trial that exposed his truly monstrous acts, and the town whose very heart was broken forever

Larry Manetti  -  "Aloha Magnum"
Larry Manetti   started acting in his hometown of Chicago.  After studying acting with the Ted List Theater Players, Larry drove to Los Angeles in 1972.  Larry landed an agent and was sent to Universal Studios to audition for an opening as a contract player.  Luck was on his side.  Jack Webb was casting a new series for NBC called  The Chase.  Larry played a young detective.  After attending acting school at Sal Dano's at night and doing bit parts by day, he scored.  Baa Baa Black Sheep was being produced and cast at Universal, and the now famous writer Stephen J. Cannell was the executive producer and the role was a natural for Larry.  He was cast as a cocky, hot shot pilot named Bobby Boyle.  The show was a big hit for NBC but was cancelled within two years. Because the network was so impressed with Larry's on-screen presence, they cast him in a new series called The Duke.  Bad luck!  The Duke was cancelled in one year.  Larry was back to playing whatever Universal told him to.  Hoping to catch lighting in a jar, along came Magnum, P.I. and the role of Rick. This was his elevator...the show became a mega-hit for 8 years.  Since Magnum, P.I., Larry has done co-starring roles in 25 feature films and guest starred on many hot TV shows.  Larry is the author of a book titled Aloha Magnum.
