Brett Cantor: Unsolved Murder Mystery | Preview

PREVIEW: True crime podcast currently in production.

In our first case, we will take you back to 1993 to investigate the unsolved murder of twenty-five-year-old A&R rep and music promoter, Brett Cantor, who, on July 30th, was found dead in his Hollywood apartment. He was the business partner of Steve Edelson in the popular nightclub Dragonfly and a promoter of underground parties known as “raves.” He was also the boyfriend of actress, Rose McGowan.

In the next six episodes, we interview the original detectives assigned to his murder investigation, talk with friends, and debunk the many conspiracy theories surrounding Brett Cantor’s murder. This includes the false story that somehow his murder was related to the death of Nicole Simpson and Ron Goldman or involved drugs.

For the first time, listeners will hear new information about the unsolved case that we believe will generate new leads about what happened to him that fateful night. However, to do this, we are going to need your help to share Brett Cantor’s story and to track down his killer.

Twenty six years is a long time to wait for justice. Please contact Pat Tapia if you have any relevant information to Brett Cantor’s murder. Perhaps you knew him, worked at Dragonfly or worked in the LA rave scene, or knew someone who may be connected to his case. Please email him at prtapia187@gmail.com or contact us via our Facebook page. Any information you provide will remain anonymous.

Dragonfly Murder Mystery: Brett Cantor Story – The true crime podcast is currently in production and will premiere early fall.

      Hi Renee, thanks for your comment. Brett Cantor’s story has been pushed to early summer release. Unfortunately, we had to delay the premiere of the podcast due to production delays over the coronavirus. However, we have completed interviews with the original detectives, family, and friends. The show will premiere in late June or early July right around the 27th anniversary of his death. Thanks for listening and we will keep you posted on updates.
