Dead Wives Clubhouse Presented by HLN

Death Becomes Us is proudly presented in part by HLN. They have so many great shows but one we’re really looking forward to is the Dead Wives Club which airs on HLN Sunday October 20th. It’s a 6 part-series hosted by Lorraine Bracco (oh you know Ray Liotta’s wife in Goodfellas and Tony Soprano’s therapist in The Sopranos) about the women who were murdered and the husbands who MAYBE didn’t do it.

Take a break at the Dead Wives Clubhouse at Death Becomes Us! Pop into the mini HLN Theater to catch episodes of our favorite HLN shows! We’ll have candy and true crime books because a spoonful of sugar keeps the criminals away. Relax on a couch with your friends as you ask yourselves the age-old question: Who did it and why? Maybe they are…

DC Sniper Exhibit Presented by Audible

One of the most polarizing shows of the festival will undoubtedly be Capturing the D.C. Sniper. This show literally hits close to home. We invite you to join the key FBI agents who solved this case in an intimate conversation about how they helped capture the D.C. Sniper.

We’ve also partnered with the National Law Enforcement Museum to bring special items from their D.C. Sniper exhibit to Death Becomes Us where they will be on display for the duration of the festival. These items are on loan from the museum just for the festival and and will be discussed during the live show.

Passion For Life: A Nicole Brown Simpson Exhibit Presented by Alcatraz East Crime Museum

This exhibit was curated by Alcatraz East Crime Museum on loan from Nicole Brown Simpson’s sister Tanya Brown. Because this year marked the anniversary of the murders we wanted to do something that celebrated the life of Nicole Brown Simpson. This is going to be really special and something you won’t be able to see anywhere else and we’re incredibly grateful Tanya was willing to loan this collection to the festival.
