Colucci's Investigations

Date: 03-29-08
Host: Ian Punnett
Guests: Vito Colucci, Galen Cook

Detective turned author Vito Colucci discussed his work as a private investigator as well as some of the high profile cases he has examined over the last 20 years.

Colucci commented on the trial of Michael Skakel, who in 2002 was convicted for the murder of Martha Moxley. In 1975 Moxley was found dead on her parent's property in Greenwich, Connecticut, after having been bludgeoned with a golf club. Colucci worked for the defense team during the trial and, after hearing questionable witnesses and speaking to Skakel himself, he believes "the wrong man is in jail."

Colucci shared details from his work on the case of pro basketball player Jayson Williams. The former NBA star was tried for manslaughter and other charges stemming from the 2002 shooting of chauffeur Gus Christofi. Colucci said he uncovered important info about a $600+ liquor bill as well as evidence that discredited a person who was seeking financial gain to change his testimony.

Colucci talked about the recently jailed Anthony Pellicano, a former Los Angeles private investigator who used illegal/unethical tactics on the job. Colucci provided some rules to follow in order to conduct legal private investigation work. He touched upon the challenges of divorce work as well.

Colucci also appeared during Galen Cook's segment and provided his investigative expertise on the D.B. Cooper case. The key person in the investigation into Cook's D.B. Cooper suspect (who is deceased) is his still-living former wife, Colucci noted.

In the first hour, attorney Galen Cook provided more details about his D.B. Cooper suspect, as well as commented on a recent discovery that has put this unsolved case back in the national spotlight. According to ABC News, a parachute was found buried in a field approximately 100 miles south of Seattle. The FBI is currently analyzing the parachute to determine if it belonged to Cooper.
Cook also provided a short video clip of his D.B. Cooper suspect taken in 1973. The original footage was in 8mm color (with no sound) and provided by the suspect's son.
