Details: Gene "Bean" Baxter and Kevin Ryder were 106.7 KROQ radio dee-jays running a live comedy segment called "Confess Your Crime." It asked for listeners to call in and confess their transgressions on the radio. At approximately 9 am on June 13, 1990, a man called into the show and confessed to murder with details similar to the murder of 19 year old Angela Cummings of Oroville, California. The police want to talk further to this man.
Suspects: None
Extra Notes: This case ran on the October 10, 1990 episode.
