Writer Danny Casolaro believed he’d uncovered a secret organization of political leaders and covert operatives pulling the levers of power around the globe. He called it “The Octopus.” In 1991, when Danny’s body was discovered in a hotel bathtub, authorities ruled it a suicide - but his friends and family feared he’d been killed to keep the story quiet. In American Conspiracy: The Octopus Murders, filmmakers reopen Danny’s investigation and retrace his final days. Was the official narrative about the writer’s death a cover-up? And can they link - once and for all - a string of seemingly unconnected crimes to a shadowy group with the power to control the world? In this episode of You Can't Make This Up, host Rebecca Lavoie interviews filmmaker Zachary Treitz and researcher Christian Hansen. SPOILER ALERT! If you haven't watched American Conspiracy: The Octopus Murders yet, make sure to add it to your watch-list before listening on.  PROGRAMMING NOTE: This episode contains discussions about suicide.
