Erik Menendez Says He’ll Tell His Story For The First Time In New Docuseries

Erik Menendez was at the center of national trial. On Aug. 20, 1989, he and brother, Lyle, shot and killed their parents, José and Kitty, at point-blank range. Menendez wants to tell his most detailed side of the story for the first time. “You may think you know my story — but you couldn’t possibly, because I’m telling my story to you now for the first time,” he says in a preview for AE’s new docuseries The Menendez Murders: Erik Tells All.

As People shares, Erik has spoken out before but he says that this interview is the most comprehensive. He opens about the sexual abuse allegations against the brothers that the defense alleged sparked the shooting. “The most overwhelming memory of my dad was him pounding on my door, telling me to open the door of the bedroom,” Erik says. “He would have me massage him, and he would have me perform oral sex on

Hot Felon’s Estranged Wife Opens Up About ‘Heartbreak’ In Emotional First Interview

The “Hot Felon’s” estranged wife has opened up about husband’s infidelity during her first interview, which aired on This Morning. She told the hosts of the show that she was shocked when photos of her husband kissing Topshop heiress Chloe Green surfaced over the summer. “Hot Felon” Jeremy Meeks, 33, was still married to his Melissa, 38, when the pictures hit the tabloids.

Melissa, a mother of three, broke down in tears on the show Monday. She said she still misses her husband of eight years. Melissa said she had no inclination that Meeks was seeking out another relationship.

“People who are married, you go through your ups and downs, I thought it was a new chapter in our lives, we’d have to get over the hump and it would be fine,” Melissa said in the interview, as reported by the Daily Mail.

First Officer To Arrive At Maura Murray’s Crash Site Debunks ‘Witness A”s Account

On the most recent episode of “The Disappearance of Maura Murray,” “Witness A” spoke on camera. For years, one eyewitness of the crash scene has kept her identity protected from the public for years.

“It didn’t feel like it would be safe for me to do that because obviously something bad happened,” Karen McNamara said. Now, she decided it would be safer to reveal her identity.

“But, they know who I am because I called and told them who I am so then I thought it would be safer if people knew who I am.”

By “they,” McNamara means the police.

“I feel it’s risky to say on camera but I don’t totally trust the police,” she said.

Why? Because she reported seeing a police SUV on the crash scene. The SUV was marked 001.

“They (police) asked me if I was sure it was 001. I

First Responders Describe Jessica Chambers As ‘A Zombie’ When She Allegedly Said ‘Eric Set Me On Fire’

BATESVILLE, MS — First responders to the scene where Mississippi teenager Jessica Chambers was found with burns on 93 percent of her body said in court Wednesday morning she was “mentally in shock,” “in a trance,” and that she “looked like a zombie” when she told them a man named Eric set her on fire. 
Yet prosecutors began making their case Wednesday as to why 29-year-old Quinton Tellis—and not a man named Eric—is responsible for Chambers’ horrific murder. Tellis has pleaded not guilty.

On the second day of trial in the small Mississippi courthouse jurors heard from a parade of first responders, many of whom were the last people to speak with Chambers before she fell unconscious on Dec. 6, 2014.

Those who spoke to her at the scene of the crime in Courtland testified she said “Eric set me on fire,” and prosecutors worked to combat these reports, asking the first

OJ Simpson Speaks Out For First Time Since Being Released From Prison: ‘Nothing’s Changed’

OJ Simpson was released from prison Sunday after spending nearly nine years behind bars for orchestrating an armed robbery. The 70-year-old was released a little after midnight, wearing a baseball cap and long coat. Hours later, reporters caught up to him and the former football player responded.

“Man, how in the … Have you all been … you all stalking me?” he said, in a video posted by the New York Post. He was smiling and laughing but appeared annoyed.

The reporter asked Simpson how it felt like to be out. OJ responsed, “I’m in a car for the last five hours, so how do I know how it feels to be out? … I’ve been in nowhere U.S.A. for the last nine years doing nothing. Nothing has changed in my life. What do you expect?” 

He then told the reporter that where he was going was “none of [his] business.”

“I told

First Look: Here Are The Bone Fragments Being Tested For A Possible Natalee Holloway Match

Oxygen.com is exclusively releasing images of the four bone fragments currently being tested for a possible match to Natalee Holloway, the Alabama teen who made international headlines after disappearing on a class trip to Aruba in 2005. As Oxygen.com recently reported, at least one of the bone fragments discovered through an investigation being chronicled on “The Disappearance of Natalee Holloway” came from a single human of Caucasian, European descent—just like Natalee Holloway

 

 

 

The bone fragments were recently discovered in Aruba during an 18-month investigation conducted by Natalee’s father, Dave Holloway, and his private investigator, TJ Ward. John Ludwick, a friend of longtime suspect Joran van der Sloot, claimed he was paid $1,500 in 2010 to dig up Natalee Holloway’s remains and have them cremated.
