Real Life Michigan Cannibal Featured In TV Series [Video]
An alleged serial killer, who may have served her lover to her friends at a barbeque will be featured in a new series on Investigation Discovery.
Guests at an Upper Peninsula barbeque in 2014 thought the hamburgers tasted kind of strange. Was it because they were eating Chris Regan, the ex-boyfriend of the host?
That's the conclusion of former Iron River Police Chief Laura Frizzo, who will be featured, along with several other principals in the case on a new docuseries for Investigation Discovery called 'Dead North'.
The series debuted May 28, and is available to watch online at the Investigation Discovery web site.
The odd case revolves around Kelly Cochran, who had an extramarital affair with Regan that year. When her husband found out, they allegedly conspired to kill Regan, and it is alleged that they shot and killed him in their Iron River home.
Cochran's brother, Clayton Caboyan, is the one who thinks he was served Regan in a bun. In a statement to Investigation Discovery, he says he feared his sister, and thought the meat tasted funny at a barbeque. One of his friends tells the same tale on camera during the docuseries.
Although never convicted of killing Regan, Cochran was later tried and convicted of killing her husband, Jason, with a lethal overdose of heroin in Indiana.
“The first time I saw her was in the courthouse,” Regan's girlfriend, Terri O'Donnell told Fox2 News. “I just remember her staring at me and grinning. I took a deep breath and thought she was the scariest person I've ever seen. I was afraid. I couldn’t look at her for the rest of the time I was there testifying. It was like she was… laughing and saying, ‘Look at what I did. You can’t stop me.’… She just sat there and grinned.
A news release about the TV Series admits the toll the case took on Frizzo, the former Iron River Police Chief. "Frizzo remains adamant that the case isn't closed," the release stated. "The City Manager relieves Frizzo of her duties just as Kelly admits to having other 'friends' buried in Indiana, Michigan, Tennessee and Minnesota; however, the identities and specific locations of these bodies remain a mystery to this day."
