On June 29, 1978, the 1960s sitcom star (Hogan's Heroes) was found bludgeoned in his Scottsdale, Ariz., apartment. And while Crane's friend, John Henry Carpenter, fell under immediate suspicion, an arrest did not follow until 1992. A jury acquitted Carpenter of murder charges in 1994; Paul Schrader's 2002 biopic, Auto Focus, starring Greg Kinnear, reached a different verdict. Carpenter died in 1998. "I think John Carpenter was the kind of guy that had a secret, and he took it to his grave with him," a police investigator told the Arizona Republic.
