The case of Blake Leibel, a 35-year-old Canadian man who was charged this week with torturing, mutilating and killing his girlfriend in their Hollywood apartment, is explored with Mark Ebner & Joseph Scott Morgan. We look at Leibel’s personality, his relationship with his family and friends and the disturbing allegations leveled against him as we examine how a graphic novel writer may have taken his penchant for the macabre too far by reenacting his sadistic fantasies in real life, in this uncensored episode of Crime Time hosted by Allison Hope Weiner.
