 Hollywoodland the Death of George Reeves
The popular theory is that Reeves, when he proposed to blonde Lenore Lemmon (portrayed by a FAR more glamorous Robin Tunney, in the film), dumped his long-time mistress/benefactor, Toni, and she, enraged, 'spilled the beans' of her affair to her husband, in tears.
She was VERY free-spending of Reeves' cash (a part of which came from Toni Mannix, who spent lavishly on George), and was, by all accounts, not a nice person (even if George loved her).
Witnesses said she was downstairs when the shots were fired, and she would claim the 'second hole' was the result of his teaching her how to shoot (in his bedroom???), earlier...Strickling would have still performed a 'cover-up' if she were guilty, to protect the Mannix name, which would have come up in an investigation.
