Love, Lies, and Murder Movie (true story)



The movie Love, Lies, and Murder debuted on CBS in 1991. It was advertised as a movie based on a true story. The movie is based on the murder of Linda Bailey Brown. Linda Brown was murdered by her own step daughter, a plot devised by her husband David Arnold Brown and her own sister Patti Bailey. The murder actually happened in 1985. But, it was not until a few years later...after Cinnamon Brown's confession about her father's involvement, did the case make national headlines. The media and tabloid newspapers went crazy over this case. No one could believe that a man, a father, had actually convinced his own daughter to commit murder and to then take the fall for him. You can read over the case load below. Lots of good links there to read. There is even a book about the case. 

The movie is told from the perspective of Patti.

Cinnamon Brown Out of Prison

According to Ann Rule, Cinnamon Brown is out of prison. She should be about 42 years old, and has a family of her own.

I started doing a little digging and found this info. Cinnamon Brown married her first husband in November 1993 in Las Vegas, Nevada. Though they listed their residence as California. He died in 2006. Some say his death was a suicide others say it was under mysterious circumstances in a hotel in Las Vegas, Nevada. He was 41 years old.

She appears to be with another man, not sure if that is her husband or boyfriend. Both men appeared to have been of Mexican descent. She is working and doing fine.
