John Holmes and The Wonderland Murders
John Holmes was born in Ohio 1944, a simple country boy who married a woman named Sharon, setting off for California to live a peaceful happy life.So how did this mutate into one of the most sordid unsolved murders, John with blood on his hands, after a long slow slide into crack addiction, that Los Angeles CA has ever known?It started with John getting into pornography and from there, excess and the Hollywood Lifestyle would overtake him to the point of no return. He would become but a shadow of the man he once was and because of his addiction to drugs not only would he start pimping out his young teenage girlfriend, but he would also grow into one of the most legendary undesirables that ran around the streets of LA.This is the life and downfall of Johnny Wad Holmes and the infamous Wonderland Murders.Also at the end I do a brief overview of two cases - the Patricia Meehan case out of Montana and the Brayman Hollow Road story - which happened 40 years ago and yet still sends the same chills down the spine as when it first happened.
