Hollywood murders often make the stuff of Hollywood stories.
There’s no place with more controversy or twisted morals where people are just as easily bought and sold through the backdoors of the entertainment industry as are drugs and cheap comic book movie rights.
As a result, every story of untimely violence out of the City of Angels reads like it could be the treatment for a screenplay and often involves the sort of people that would be behind the camera rather than right up front.
Blake Leibel was a young kid with a lot of money and dreams of making it big as a director and producer.
He also dreamed of having the playboy lifestyle with an attractive wife to stick by his side through it all as he rose into power and fame. But that life wasn’t for him.
He was too controlling, too violent, not talented enough, and in the end, the only way he could make it famous was by being a murderer.
10 /10 The Easy Life
Blake Leibel was the second son of a very affluent Canadian family. His father, Lorne, was a retired Olympic athlete who used his money to start a real estate business that carried him into earning billions of dollars.
As such, Blake only knew that same affluence as he was raised with high expectations to follow after his father and find success in whatever field he chose.
9 /10 Weight Of Money
Blake was also the second son in the family, which was not as advantageous as it sounded.
His father’s praise and attention went to his older brother, Cody, who always showed more interest in sports which followed after his old man’s success.
As a result, Blake worked twice as hard to earn not even half of his father’s affection and was mainly doted on by his mother, Elanor. As a result, his parents separated but did not divorce early in Blake’s life.
