Murder, mayhem, aggravated mayhem, and torture: real life horror in Hollywood.

Just two weeks ago, Blake Leibel seemed to have it all: a beautiful girlfriend, a baby boy, a family fortune and a foothold in Hollywood.
Now he is suspected of one count each of murder, mayhem, aggravated mayhem and torture. It's a case which has gripped the US media, like a plot ripped straight from the pages of a pulp thriller.
Or a violent graphic novel, which is precisely what Leibel was known as, a graphic novelist wannabe.

In a detail seemingly pulled from Leibel’s own graphic novel, prosecutors said her body had been “drained” of its blood.
Leibel has pleaded not guilty. If convicted of first-degree murder, he could face the death penalty.
Such a sentence would be a bizarre and ironic twist for the graphic novelist, whose best-known work begins with the execution of a serial killer on death row.
It would also mark a sudden and precipitous fall for Leibel, the son of a wealthy Toronto developer and former Olympian.

Given the biographical details in the article, Leibel had a privileged upbringing with no material deprivations.

The victim hardly gets a mention in the article.

If Leibel is guilty, he deserves everything that he gets.

Sounds like he's been set up.

I don't understand the charges but aggravated mayhem sounds like fun.
