Play • 33 min

St. Patrick's Day 1985 saw two brutal murders take place just miles apart in LA. Investigators would later learn they were the work of a drifter with big eyes, bad teeth and a handgun that he had no problem using. 

Episode 4 of LA 85, titled "Blood Simple" looks at the slaying of Dayle Okazaki, 34, of Rosemead, California, and the death, just an hour later of Tsai-Lian Yu, 30, of Monterey Park. 

The infamous Cecil Hotel,  AC/DC's Highway to Hell album and forensic science all play a role.  The podcast delves into an examination of early evidence in and gives an insider's look at the investigation led by LA County Sheriff's Deputies Frank Salerno and Gil Carrillo. 

The defining moments of LA 85 and LA's future are about to play out in ways no one could have imagined.
