The Evil Twin
Were you a runaway teen in the late 60’s and early 70’s?
Did you make your way to LA to try and make your fame and fortune.
If you were a male teen during those times and were suitably young and suitably attractive, a female, who was also very young might come up to you and offer to buy you a meal.
If you accepted, you were then fed a meal and the conversation would inevitably turn to movies and acting and the dreams of the runaway. If he seemed desperate enough for a part, our young female would give him a card and tell him to call a very good friend of hers.
The very good friend was this permanent A list mostly movie actor who was past his peak on the list, but still had A+ list name recognition, much like he still enjoys to this day.
Of course the young man would call.
I say man, but we are talking about teens here.
Anywhere from 14-16 was the sweetspot in ages that the female was told to look for.
She was that same age about then.
She took over the job in about 1970.
Prior to that time, the job had been handled by an actress.
The actress was foreign born and almost A- list.
She had a very secret life including a secret marriage and a very big secret drug problem.
The actor blackmailed her for many years and would force her to participate in his fetishes and find young teens for him.
If she refused, the actor would have told the world about her marriage or the drugs, either of which would have ruined her career.
After her suicide, the actor turned to her “adoptive daughter,” who was really herself a runaway who lived with the actress and her husband and was basically their sex slave.
She later had a recurring role on this long running 70’s-80’s television drama because she was hooking up with the at the time A+ list star of the show.
Anyway, usually within hours of handing over a card, the teen boy would call the number and be told to make his way to an address in the canyons.
The gate would be open to a house.
In the driveway of the house would be a Rolls Royce.
At the wheel of the car would be the stunt double of the permanent A list actor.
Invariably the boy would ask if the driver was the actor and the driver would respond that he was the actor’s evil twin.
He would then tell the boy to get in the backseat.
There, in the backseat would be the actor.
Once the boy was in, the car would be locked and the driver would start driving.
The speed of the car would pick up and the molesting would begin as soon as the car turned on to Mulholland.
The boy would be forced to orally service the actor and would often be raped as well.
There was no chance for the boy to escape because the car was locked.
Even if he managed to get the door open, jumping would mean certain death.
There was also the gun that the driver carried should the boy try and fight off the attempt.
After the rape, the boy would usually be left on the side of the road, often not wearing anything other than a shirt.
Apparently this went on several times a week for years.
