Unsolved mystery: Bob Crane

Every now and then a question burns in my brain. Today it was: who really killed Bob Crane? If you didn't know, Bob Crane starred as Hogan in Hogan's Heroes, one of my favorite shows as a kid. Was the killer Bob's long time friend, John Carpenter , the guy he used to film home pornography flicks with? Or did someone else do it? And what was the motive of the murder? I suppose I'll have to get one of those Anne-Rule-type books and read up to satisfy myself. But it is kind of like trying to figure out who Jack the Ripper was and who the Zodiac killer was…who was the murderer of Bob Crane?

In any case, the death of Mr. Whipple, the Charmin guy (who had a role on Hogan's Heroes) and the media-reported death of Patricia Crane (Bob Crane's widow) set the spark in motion. Now I am sitting with the burning why?
