HE WAS THE "BAD BOY" OF BODYBUILDING
Craig Titus once earned the championship title of Mr. USA, but that was before his illegal drug use and terrible temper got the best of his body--and his career. Soon he would redirect his attention toward a young, bubbly fitness professional who looked up to Craig as a mentor…and later became his wife.
 
SHE WAS A COVER GIRL FOR MUSCLE MAGAZINES
Kelly Ryan quickly rose to the top of her field. She appeared on the cover of Ironman magazine's swimsuit issue and was named Ms. Fitness America. A crowd favorite, her fans were shocked to learn that Kelly had been taken into custody, along with Craig, on charges of murder. The victim: the couple's personal assistant, Melissa James.
 
THEIR BODIES WERE TO DIE FOR…
Did Craig have a romantic relationship with Melissa? And did Kelly find out about--and force Craig to put a deadly end to their affair? When Melissa's corpse was found in the back of Kelly's Jaguar, police made an arrest. Now, the burning question that remains is: Is America's favorite celebrity bodybuilding couple guilty as charged? With this shocking exposé, author Michael Fleeman attempts to find out.
