In 1998, Congressman Sonny Bono, who came to fame as part of the singing duo Sonny & Cher, died while skiing alone near South Lake Tahoe, Nevada. After his music career ended, Salvatore Phillip "Sonny" Bono became mayor of Palm Springs, California, and in 1995 was named congressman for California's 44th district. As a freshman congressman, he tried to shake things up in Washington.
Former policeman Thomas Lee Gorzynski's new investigative book Like Sonny Hit a Tree probes into whether his death was really an accident.
The author also delves into the mysterious death of writer Danny Casolaro, who was about to reveal a massive government plot. He was found dead in a Martinsburg, West Virginia hotel in 1991 with his wrists slashed ten to twelve times. Are these two deaths connected?
Joseph Daniel Casolaro's cause of death was controversial because he was in Martinsburg to meet a source on a story he called "the Octopus." His investigation involved an international government collaboration concerning the Iran-Contra scandal and other business plots. Before heading for Martinsburg, he told his brother that if something happened to him in Martinsburg, it would not be an accident.
