The Covina massacre occurred on December 24, 2008, in Covina, a city in the suburbs of Los Angeles, California. Nine people were killed, either by gunshot wounds or in an arson fire inside a house, where a Christmas Eve party was being held. The perpetrator, 45-year-old Bruce Jeffrey Pardo, who entered the house wearing a Santa suit, committed suicide, dying from a gunshot wound to the head at his brother's residence in the early morning hours after the attack. Authorities cited marital problems as a possible motive for the violence; reports indicated that Pardo's divorce had been finalized on December 18, one week before the massacre. On this 10th episode, Jill and Dick discuss one of the most gruesome Christmas Crimes ever.
St. Bernardus Christmas Ale is the chosen beer for this tragic Christmas crime.
