BADLANDS

20-12-2023 • 37 mins

Robert Blake was a former child actor and tough-talking TV cop. He was also a tough customer. He talked like a mobster, lived like a cowboy, and was intimately familiar with the rougher side of life. That rough side of life caught up with him in 2001, when he was charged with murder when his wife, Bonny Lee Bakley, was found shot dead in the front seat of Blake’s Dodge Stealth. Depending on who you talk to, Robert Blake was either rightfully acquitted…or managed to escape justice. To see the complete list of contributors, visit disgracelandpod.com/badlands.
