National splash leads to fraudster’s capture

It’s rare to find someone who doesn’t appreciate a great mystery, which is why I am so intrigued by Boulder City’s tie to the documentary-style TV show “Unsolved Mysteries.” One of my readers, Carole Neat, recently emailed me a tip about a shyster businessman who swindled millions of dollars from investors only to be caught at a local hotel.

I personally love any type of true-crime drama regardless if it’s on television, shown at the movies or captured in a book. I closely followed the curious case of Gregory Hover. In 2010, Hover went on a crime spree, which included raping and killing a woman before setting her car on fire — with her body in it — in Boulder City. Hover received the death sentence.

10 must-see landmarks for true-crime fans

Some people will say this true crime boom is just a phase, but true “murderinos” know better — America has always been fascinated with true crime.

So if you need to scratch that morbid itch, here are 10 landmarks worth visiting, from a Dallas museum that shows you the site of a presidential assassination to a small dive bar in Florida where one of America’s most notorious female serial killers was arrested. Pack a bag, jump in the car with
