A notorious 1975 double-murder of two Yakima men caught up in a love triangle will be the focus of a true-crime TV drama airing tonight on the Investigation Discovery channel.
“Wrestling With the Devil” looks at the shooting deaths of Glynn “Gabby” Moore and Morris Blankenbaker, who were linked through their marriages to the same woman. Yakima resident Angelo Pleasant, a star wrestler at Davis High School, where Moore was the wrestling coach, was convicted of the crimes.
The case received extensive media coverage at the time, and it drew more attention when noted crime writer Ann Rule wrote about it in her book “A Fever in the Heart.”
“Wrestling With the Devil” is one of 10 episodes in a new Investigation Discovery series called “I’d Kill for You.” The network is part of the same group that has the Discovery Channel.
In the Yakima area, the episode airs at 7 p.m. on Charter Cable channel 134, DISH Network channel 192 and DirectTV channel 285.
