Official Statement about the Re-Investigation of Bob Crane's Murder (11/23/16)
"We—my coauthors and I, members of Bob Crane's family, his friends, and his colleagues—are always hopeful that one day, the true identity of Bob's murderer will be known and justice can be served. However, this recent investigation did not reveal any groundbreaking information or provide a resolution, and the subsequent media coverage did nothing more than bring unnecessary heartache to many who knew, loved, and cared about Bob. We do not discuss or endorse any speculative theories as to who may have committed the crime. We encourage those who want to know more about Bob Crane to discover his complete and true life story in Bob Crane: The Definitive Biography. All author profits are being donated to various charities in Bob's memory."

'A Gift of Love and Laughter — Enjoy the Gift!'

Bob Crane with Ruta Lee on Hogan's Heroes.
The lovely and talented Ruta Lee, who appeared in several episodes of Hogan's Heroes ("To Russia Without Love," "Who Stole My Copy of Mein Kampf," and "Hogan and the Lady Doctor), and whose extensive resume includes her work on Operation Eichmann and Seven Brides for Seven Brothers, was happy to contribute to Bob Crane: The Definitive Biography. She liked Bob very much, and she had wonderful memories about working along side of him on Hogan's Heroes. 

She recalled his sense of humor and professionalism, and when asked what she wanted people to know about Bob, she said, "What the world saw and got was a gift of love and enjoy the gift!"

You can read more about Ms. Lee's remembrances of working with Bob on the set of Hogan's Heroes in Bob Crane: The Definitive Biography, available through all major book retailers worldwide.
