July 1 - 1981 - The Wonderland Murders
Up a small street called Wonderland Avenue in the Laurel Canyon area of Los Angeles, four people were brutally murdered in a gang related attack, with another person being horribly injured. Under normal circumstances, this would have just been another piece of drug related violence. But police learned that John Holmes, the most famous male porn star in the world, was present, and that he had also been connected to an armed robbery by the Wonderland gang at rival drug leader's house. That made it a whole new tabloid story.
