Market Basket Parking Lot – A Dead Body In The Trunk


Cynthia Bouron was a showgirl and actress who was once married to Milos Milosevic (aka Milos Milos), a would-be actor and stuntman during the mid 1960s.

Milos murdered Barbara Rooney, Mickey’s estranged wife, and then took his own life in this murder-suicide back in 1966. Although rumors swirled that Bouron and Mickey teamed up and had them killed for their affairs, it was not true. Milos was just a crazy asshole.

Her three kids were asleep. Here they are being led away from the house the next morning.

Cynthia’s story does not end there. In the late 60s, she was known for having affairs with many famous dudes. In 1970, she filed a paternity suit against Cary Grant, even placing his last name on the child’s birth certificate. But she would not get a blood test and the case was tossed by the court.

By 1973 Cynthia was living in this little house and working as a saleslady at a department store. She was also a “writer” – but everyone says that in Hollywood. By this time, two of her boys were already in their teens. Today, this 1,400 sq ft house is worth almost a million dollars. You can buy a ranch in Texas for that kind of dough. Hollyweird.

Sadly, by 1973 Cynthia pissed off someone or was abducted by a stranger. She was found after being missing for a week. Bouron had been bludgeoned to death via blows to the head and was stuffed in the trunk of her car which was found in this supermarket parking lot in Studio City. The store was called the Market Basket back then.

What it looked like back then - this is a screen capture from an old Dick Van Dyke movie, filmed on location.

Here’s what the shopping center looks like today. I guess it’s that pharmacy to the left over there:

The case went cold and has never been solved.
