Scott Thorson Enters The Fray
Yes, we knew the day would come when Scott Thorson would enter the Wonderland story. And not a day too soon!
When the article below was published in 1982, Scott was suing Liberace, after a whirlwind relationship which started years earlier when Scott was 17 and Liberace was 57 years old. That leads us to believe that Scott was partying hard over a year earlier, during his long, tough break-up with Liberace. Scott was out of control and Liberace literally threw him out on the street. Scott could easily have been at Eddie Nash’s house the night of the murders when Holmes was being slapped around and threatened. I believe that much is true.
Another thing that was going on in October, 1982 was that a prima-donna named John Holmes was in the middle of his not-so publicized hunger strike. He lost 11 lbs. and survived on cookies and candy, not too mention chain smoking and yoga. By this time, Johnny Wadd had had just about about enough of jail on the contempt charge. Another inmate even tried to poke out his eye with pencil while John worked as a magazine or library trustee. As luck would have it, John Holmes would finally agree to talk in a few more weeks. You see, he was feeling safer after Eddie and Greg were eventually in jail for drug possession sentences which were finally levied in 1982.
Scott Thorson would eventually make a deal in 1988 to testify against Eddie Nash. This was mostly to avoid some of his own drug charges. Where was he in 1981? He was partying his ass off on Liberace’s dime. Rumor has it that he even allowed for Eddie to lay low at one of Liberace’s homes in L.A. right after the killings. The Wonderland Murders must not have kept him awake at night. It’s hard to have a conscience in the freebase game. Hell, that’s a shame but I keep forgetting that freebase people are full of shit, as Det. Nico said.
I will report more soon, but first let’s review this awesome article, brocade dinner jacket and all! This is almost styled like a Nat’l Enquirer gossip piece. Awesome. Btw, I think Scott and Liberace settled out of court for a few cars and fraction of the desired $$ amount.
