Very smart Friend

I knew Lisa Kudrow majored in biology at Vassar, but I didn't know she wanted to do research in evolutionary psychology. Listen to a full interview with her, she's intelligent & delightful.

I rememeber the case. It was one of the funniest murders ever. If memory serves, some guys had ripped off Eddie Nash (Abdel Nasrallah), a drug suplier, restaurenteur and club owner, and Holms was periphrally involved. Nash and his bodyguard got some info on this out of Holmes and killed the thieves.
The LAPD never thought Holmes did the deed, but they thought he had information - so they chaged him with the murder. "Murder with a blunt instrument" was the charge.
I rolled on the floor laughing. Holmes refuesed to talk - they held him for a long time, but finally gave up and released him. Nash bribed a juror and got off scot-free.
