Actor and Murder Victim. Danny appeared in "Hello Dolly" as 'Barnaby' and numerous television shows. He also appeared on "Dean Martin presents the Golddiggers." On August 21, 1977, Danny had competed on "The Gong Show." He lived in Orange County and worked for his mother's dance studio at the time. He went to a bar in Garden Grove, California, for a drink. Danny was found murdered in the apartment of Charles Hopkins who had stabbed him 100 times. Police found a "torture diary" under Hopkins' bed and tired in vain to prosecute Hopkins. Pictures found in the diary show that Hopkins had planned the murder. The courts ruled that the evidence found after the crime was not admissible in court. Hopkins only served four years for the murder.
