Come along with me in a red 1957 Chrysler 300C, fins and all, for a look into one of the most high profile murder cases of its time set against the midcentury glamour of Hollywood, Las Vegas and Palm Springs.
“Satin Pumps: The Moonlit Murder That Mesmerized The Nation” is a true crime memoir written by screenwriter and author Steve Kosareff who is my guest!
Early in the evening on July 18, 1959, Dr. Bernard Finch and his girlfriend, Carole Ann Tregoff, drove from their Las Vegas love-nest to the Finch home in the Los Angeles suburb of West Covina to speak to his wife Barbara about obtaining a speedy divorce in Nevada. But the plan went awry and the conversation turned deadly with Barbara’s lifeless body ending up in her in-laws’ backyard next door.
After a high-speed chase with police, Finch was arrested the next morning in Las Vegas and charged with Barbara’s murder. Then, during his court hearing in West Covina, Carole was arrested on the witness stand and charged as his accomplice.
Soon others were named as part of a larger conspiracy. But who were they and what parts did they play in these deadly events?
