MSNBC'S Lockup Extended Stay, OC Version, to Debut Saturday Night
|Clarence Butterfield, Daughter Killer, Reality TV Star|
Yeah, that show.
First, there's Clarence Butterfield, the straight-up wackjob who tortured and killed his daughter, and then stuffed her naked body into an ice chest in his trailer, where it remained for two years. According to MSNBC, Butterfield denies any wrongdoing and "claims to be a devout Christian and says he was hoping a miracle would bring her back to life." In episode two, we meet Daniel Wozniak, the student actor who went batshit loco and killed two friends, dismembering their bodies before tossing one of their torsos in a theater where he once performed, all in order to steal their money and "pay for his upcoming wedding and honeymoon."
The series doesn't just focus on nutjobs and accused murderers, however; it also includes some sobering profiles of folks who are behind bars thanks to addiction, including 38-year-old alcoholic Ryan Abbey, serving time for drinking on probation and resisting arrest. You can watch a clip of his interview here.
And what would this show be without a peek at the folks involved in the bloodiest murder ever to take place behind bars in Orange County? On April 2, we'll meet Jared Petrovich and Stephen Carlstrom, two defendants in the October 2006 murder of John Chamberlain, whom they and other inmates believed was a child molester and who died at the hands of dozens of prisoners. You can read my stories based on exclusive interviews with them here and here. It'll be interesting to see if the words "Deputy Kevin Taylor" come up in that episode. Presumably, he wasn't available for an interview, since unlike the prisoners charged in the crime, Taylor, who allegedly outed Chamberlain as a suspected child molester, just lost his day job.
