In 1993, Johnny Depp met Anthony Fox, the Sunset Strip nightclub owner of “The Central." Little did Fox know his business partnership with the actor would turn deadly.
The club had a rich history and was formerly known as “The Melody Room,” an illicit gambling den for mobsters like Mickey Cohen and Bugsy Siegel.
On August 14, 1993, the club reopened as “The Viper Room,” and at Depp’s request, Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers performed on opening night.
A few short months later, on Halloween night one of Hollywood’s brightest stars, River Phoenix, would take a “speedball” of heroin and cocaine and die of a drug overdose outside his new club.
Join us on a supernatural journey as we uncover the shocking details of River Phoenix’s death, examine the mystical facts, and investigate the mysterious disappearance of Anthony Fox.
This is Death by Misadventure.
