Duchess Spinelli’s Crime School

The Halfwit Gang Of Golden Gate Avenue

Although there’s nothing funny about real-life murder, if Episode 361 were fictional, you could shelve it right next to Elmore Leonard or Carl Hiaasen and the wacky characters they create who walk in the realm of dark comedy. The downfall of this gang that couldn’t shoot straight begins when one of its members decides to surrender and deliver state’s evidence when it begins to look like his days are numbered. And, it turns out, he was right.

Culled from the historic pages of the San Francisco Examiner, the Oakland Tribune, and other newspapers of the era.
