How It Really Happened, HLN’s original primetime series, relaunched on Sunday, August 28, 2022, with its seventh season. The show dives into some of the most infamous mysteries, crimes, tragedies, and trials of the recent past, with a particular focus on celebrities, with extensive footage and interviews from CNN’s extensive news archives.
In the show’s latest airing, Episode 6: Hollywood Ripper, which was released on Sunday, September 18, 2022, host Jesse L. Martin discussed with the audience how on February 21, 2001, a beautiful young woman scheduled to go on a date with actor Ashton Kutcher, was brutally murdered inside her home in Hollywood right before said outing. Upon inquiry by detectives, several of her friends disclosed stories about an odd technician showing up uninvited at her house to fix the air conditioning.
They were only aware that his name was “Mike,” but as the necessary investigation unfolded, the police discovered that this man’s real name was Michael Thomas Gargiulo, and he may have been linked to another murder in Illinois nearly eight years ago. Gargiulo went on to commit more vicious crimes while being only a suspect and free until one young woman fought back and stopped him once and for all.
