Authorities Installed Bugged Phone At Eddie’s Place

Corey Mitchell is the author of “Hollywood Death Scenes: True Crime and Tragedy in Paradise”. He posted the information below on a discussion forum back in 2001, when Eddie was dealing with his racketeering case.

A few observations…

By this time, Eddie was living at his condo in Tarzana, not at his old Dona Lola house. However, the issue of Eddie’s bail being revoked from talking to bad people on the “list” made by prosecutors is correct. Nash did live to accept a plea bargain in this case, and served about half of the 37 months sentence.

Eddie is still alive and chillaxin’, living out his golden years and being a grandpa. It’s funny, because I saw a Wonderland video on YouTube recently, someone made a nasty comment about Eddie, and another user claiming to be his grandson said something like “my grandpa is great, he had nothing to do with this!”. If it was genuine, then it’s a small world indeed.

Corey Mitchell tells us…

In November 2000, Eddie Nash was actually released from jail on $1.5 million bail. His worth at the time was estimated to be $30-$35 million. While out on bail, however, Nash made a few mistakes. He was ordered to be sequestered in his mansion and was also hit with several restrictions. One being that he was supposed to use a specific telephone when making any outgoing calls. This phone, along with his mail, was monitored by the FBI. Nash, however, used a different phone to make several calls. Needless to say, Judge Carlos Moreno was not happy. Nash also took visits from a lawyer friend who had been subpoenaed by the judge. Nash was not supposed to have any contact with his friend. As a result, Moreno threw Nash back in jail where he sits today waiting for his trial. A trial date of September has been set, but it could possibly be pushed back. Nash is in poor physical shape as he suffers from emphysema, coronary artery disease, and tuberculosis. Some people think he may not even live to see trial.
