Bob Crane is best known for his two-time-Emmy-nominated role on the hit show Hogan's Heroes, where he played a prisoner of war. After the show ended so did his career, where he was only able to get a few guest roles and landed in a couple of failed shows. Then in 1978 he was found bludgeoned to death in his apartment, with the murder weapon and murderer nowhere to be found. At one point his friend John Carpenter was arrested and tried for the murder, but he was eventually acquitted. The trail had gone cold after that.
