  • Notes 
    • Murder Victim. Bruce was a wealthy bookie based in Las Vegas when he disappeared in 1996. His live-in girlfriend, Amy DeChant, initially denied any knowledge of his disappearance. However, she later told investigators that Bruce was killed by the mob and that they threatened to kill her if she told anyone. A month later, Bruce's body was discovered in a shallow grave near Mesquite, Nevada. Following an investigation, DeChant was eventually arrested. She posted bail and promptly disappeared. After being featured on an episode of "America's Most Wanted," police received a tip that she was living in a nudist colony in Florida. She was returned to Nevada and tried and convicted of his murder, receiving two life sentences for the crime. However, the Nevada Supreme Court later vacated the sentence because the jury was unduly influenced by comments that should have been ruled inadmissible by the judge who presided over the trial. Rather than mounting another prolonged trial, the prosecutors negotiated a plea deal from DeChant for second degree murder, and she was given 10 to 25 years in prison. She has already been paroled.
