HBO Cathouse star dies in mysterious fire – Oklahoma City’s Cathouse Murders (2009)

House on fire At 5:30 a.m. on Monday, November 9, 2009, Oklahoma City's 911 emergency dispatch center received a harrowing phone call reporting a house fire on the 1500 block of Southwest 56th Street. The caller, a neighbor down the street from the blaze, was calm as she described the scene to the 911 operator. Within minutes, firefighters from the Oklahoma City Fire Department (OCFD) arrived on the scene and attempted to determine whether anyone was inside the burning single-level brick home.  After extinguishing the fire, which gutted much of the inside of the house as well as the roof, investigators located four bodies inside the residence.
