A new book has hit the shelves written by Michael Fleeman entitled, Killer Bodies: A Glamorous Bodybuilding Couple, a Love Triangle, and a Brutal Murder.

About the Author
Michael Fleeman is an associate bureau chief for People magazine in Los Angeles and a former reporter for The Associated Press. He lives in Los Angeles with his wife and two children.

Book Description as seen on Amazon.com
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.

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.

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.

    Awesome! Where can I buy this! Is Glenn Puit involved in this book? Did this author get to interview Craing and Kelly? What about Anthony Gross? Why didn’t Dennis Bates ever come out with his audio book with Craig? Many questions need to be answered!

  2. OTF Says:

    I wonder if there is anything we dont already know in this book or it is just another view of the same information??? I think we are just stuck in nuetral until the trial gets started.

    Good question regarding Anthony Gross. I have asked it as well and knowone has answered me. Does anyone know what is going on with Anthony Gross???

  3. Administrator Says:

    We’re waiting for our copy to arrive and once we’ve read it will post comments on this book. It contains a number of photos of Craig and Kelly.

    Anthony Gross is still on house arrest and living in Las Vegas. He must await the trial like Craig and Kelly but fortunately for him, not in jail.

  4. Chainsaw Says:

    Will the administrator put out a book on all these posts next? Maybe we can all have a group photo, me, d*, Phil, Mr Bates, Schock, Venice, Jason G ect. I bet it would be a funny picture. There is probably nothing new in this book, I’ll sit in Borders and read it. I know there will be a lot of new stuff coming out when the trial starts, that is if CT is still alive when it happens. You know the guards are waiting for him to make a wrong move so they can off him.

  5. OTF Says:

    Do does house arrest me all the time? Can Anthony work?

  6. LA Jones Says:

    Though they are minor ‘celebrities’, it will be interesting to see-if convicted-how harsh the punishment will be for both of them. Personally, I don’t think they have a chance to win at trial and I think the state of Nevada is going to make an example of them. How will they cope emotionally then with the ultimate sentence hanging over their heads?

  7. Venice Says:


    Do you still have contact with CT and KR?

    What happened to your audio book?

  8. Chainsaw Says:

    OJ simpson was questioned at the Palace Station today. That is where CT said he went to meet this boyfriend of MJ. That area is a major dope area just away from the strip close to downtown. Just a coincidence.

  9. wilson Says:


    Can you answer the question re:

    -ur contact with CT and KR

    -the audio book

  10. Phil Says:


    Never put it past Craig to be in the wrong place at the wrong time….right?..lol

  11. Peter Ehrlich Says:

    My sense is, if Daskas runs in the next election and takes himself off the CT/KR case, the Prosecution will miss a talented and key player. I have to think CT/KR hope to hell Daskas isn’t the Prosecutor for their trilal which will likely be in early 2008

  12. Havoc Says:

    I got it at Wal-Mart for $4.50.

    There is one photo of Craig and Kelly.

  13. Cindy Says:

    I too got the book at Walmart. The last chapter references “at the end of September, 2007…..” this and that happened. There are many typos in the book, but you’d think a sharp editor would have caught this one! It isn’t the end of September 2007 YET!

  14. shockandawe Says:

    You’re not going to read anything new in this book, I can assure you. Classic “front list book” - penned quick and dirty from existing known facts. However, unlike Puitt, this guy can actually write - he was with the AP for years, after all. Puitt had an interesting journalistic/ reporting style, much more akin to sensationalism and tabloid style. Though, truth be told, this one will likely be written in that style too, since the author has written for People. Gossipy feature style fit for a semi-legitimate tabloid pub.

    Still, my money’s on this guy for being a better writer and more interesting read.

    Peace out

  15. Havoc Says:


    I also noticed it said “the end of September 2007…” WTF?

    It comes across as a “quickie” book to me.

    But a decent read….


  16. wilson Says:

    This book is nothing short of “Gone With the Wind.” PERIOD.

    Just like Titus and Ryan are innocent period!!!

  17. billy Says:

    I shoplifted the book at Wal-Mart and got busted by some big fat security guard wannabe cop. Now i have to go to court and pay a bunch of money to a stupid lawyer! I feel like a silly jerk plus i got the crap beat out of me by that big fat security guard wannabe cop. This book destroyed my life.

  18. bobby smith Says:

    Serious allegations against lawfirm involved. nevada bar

  19. Phil Says:

    Well, looks like “the juice” can share his thoughts with CT on how he slaughtered 2 people..I was told that OJ is 4 cells over from CT…OJ is facing life in prison (again) 7 felonies..Dude, If someone ripped you property..CALL THE POLICE! If I were the juice.. I wouldn’t hold someone at gun point and run his mouth in rage…I think they will make a BIG example out of OJ…But- do you think this will destract from CT and Kell’s case??

  20. shockandawe Says:

    Billy, if that isn’t life imitating art….errr…life…err….Craig and Kelly’s life, I don’t know what is! That is classic.

    Phil, I hadn’t heard about OJ - funny enough since I am in a newsroom 30 hours a week. So insular here. Also moved into a new home after 10 months of construction, so feel a bit out of the loop.

  21. Phil Says:

    Shock..Congrats on your new home! I was told “the juice” is right down the hall from CT..Today they informed the media that OJ had 10 felonies..Shock, do you think this is a judicial payback ..maybe a payback from what he did (allegedly) What’s your take on the OJ moving forward?

  22. bobby smith Says:


  23. Stan Says:


    Answer the man’s question.

  24. humble bee Says:

    I know Dennis.

    He’s a false prophet.

    He does what he does for money and attention.

  25. Maurice Says:

    Craig and OJ will be lovers in the near future. They are going to be the most famous inmate couple in sport history. Who wants a picture of them?

  26. Havoc Says:

    Sounds like you have a certain fantasy going there.

    Great. Keep it there…..


  27. tenacious D Says:

    Man things get so interesting in this case and then it goes back to being about as exciting as Dennis’ website or watching paint dry…

    Why can’t it be like the old days.

    Give Craig a full year to train and take more roids and HGH than he’s ever taken and then let him fight a lion in the Roman Coliseum…or maybe just use Siegfried and Roy’s lions - they’ve got some time on their paws these days…

  28. Maurice Says:

    Thats right or just put him in a cage with Siegfried and Roy

    Up your’s Mr.cybergod!

    Sorry, didn’t see this one. I think OJ is going down. Can you imagine this buffoon, living life running around smoking crack with his crack ho’ girlfriend Christine “I look like Nicole” Prody and threatening people left and right, pulling people out of cars and ripping glasses of their faces a few years ago, to this?? Can you imagine the few people who supported his black ass 13 years ago… what they must be thinking? (”Oh sh*t, I can’t believe I supported his black guilty ass!”)

    My take is, that negro is goin’ down.
