Ep. 74 – The Murder of William Arnold Newton Part IV: Meet Rachel Mason

April 24, 2021

Christopher and Eric’s ongoing discussion of the brutal, 30-year old unsolved homicide of gay adult film actor William “Billy” Newton (aka Billy London) hasn’t just drawn the attention of the LAPD homicide detective in charge of the case (see Episode 63), it’s also stirred the interest of acclaimed documentarian Rachel Mason. Her beloved film CIRCUS OF BOOKS explored her childhood as the daughter of a seemingly conventional couple who also happened to own and manage one of the most successful adult book stores in West Hollywood and distribute some of the most successful gay adult films of all time. Now, Rachel joins Christopher and Eric to discuss her own exciting plans for looking into the Billy Newton murder and the startling connections to the case she’s discovered through her family’s bookstore. West Hollywood is a very small town. As always, we ask you to send any tips or recollections you might have about the case to williamnewtoninvestigation@gmail.com. Justice for Billy is long overdue.
