SUPERMAN MURDER SOLVED!
TV legend George Reeves was killed by older lover he jilted for a sex kitten
EXPLOSIVE new forensic evidence reveals Superman actor George Reeves didn’t commit suicide — he was murdered — and a GLOBE investigation has uncovered the sordid truth behind the “perfect crime” and sinister cover-up of nearly 60 years!
Long-lost investigative reports about conditions in Reeves’ blood-splattered Hollywood Hills home reveal the handsome TV star’s ferociously jealous lover — married Toni Mannix — blew his brains out in 1959 in a bizarre Fatal Attraction–style slaughter.
But possessive Toni, who George dumped for a younger playmate, got away with the murder! Her hubby, Eddie Mannix, was Hollywood’s famed mobbedup “fixer” and the death scene was staged to look like suicide to save his wayward wife.
“There’s no question now George Reeves was murdered!” says a source, who examined secret forensic documents.
“The cold-blooded killer was Toni Mannix. She was behind the whole thing! Obsessed Toni couldn’t let him go.”
An attorney close to the case tells GLOBE: “There were a LOT of problems with the scene of Reeves’ death!”
In the early morning hours of June 16, 1959, the 45-year-old star of Adventures of Superman, which aired from 1952 to 1958, was discovered lying naked on the bed in a pool of blood. A slug blew his brains out. Blood and brain matter were splattered on the wall — but the fatal bullet was dug out of the ceiling.
The autopsy report said Reeves put his .30 caliber German Luger pistol near his right temple and pulled the trigger.
Dying instantly, he fell back onto the mattress. The gun fell to his feet and the shell was found underneath his corpse.
Los Angeles police and the county coroner called Reeves’ death an open-andshut case of suicide. They quickly closed the shabby investigation that failed to take photos of the crime scene — or look for fingerprints!
But the attorney, who has asked not to be identified, discloses startling new forensic evidence: “George had no powder burn marks on his hands or face,” which he would have if he’d held the gun against his head and pulled the trigger.
Incredibly, three bullet holes were found in the bedroom — indicating someone else fired the Luger.
“How did the death bullet end up in the ceiling while the shell casing rested underneath his body?” asks the attorney. “None of this makes any sense!”
Reeves’ body was quickly autopsied and embalmed. But his mom, Helen Bessolo,
Former Ziegfeld Girl Toni Mannix was furious at being dumped by the dashing Man of Steel
The coroner ruled the cause of death was suicide and officials quickly closed the investigation
