My special guest tonight is author David Domine` who's here to discuss his book about a shocking murder that occurred inside beautiful but reportedly haunted home in Louisville, Kentucky. Get his book 'A Dark Room in Glitter Ball City: Murder Secrets, and Scandal in Old Louisville on Amazon.
This true crime saga—with an eccentric Southern backdrop—introduces the reader to the story of a murder in a crumbling Louisville mansion and the decades of secrets and corruption that live within the old house’s walls.
On June 18, 2010, police discover a body buried in the wine cellar of a Victorian mansion in Old Louisville. James Carroll, shot and stabbed the year before, has lain for 7 months in a plastic storage bin—his temporary coffin. Homeowner Jeffrey Mundt and his boyfriend, Joseph Banis, point the finger at each other in what locals dub The Pink Triangle Murder.
On the surface, this killing appears to be a crime of passion, a sordid love tryst gone wrong in a creepy old house. But as author David Dominé sits in on the trials, a deeper story emerges: the struggle between hope for a better future on the one hand and the privilege and power of the status quo on the other.
As the court testimony devolves into he-said/he-said contradictions, David draws on the confidences of neighbors, drag queens, and other acquaintances within the city's vibrant LGBTQ community to piece together the details of the case. While uncovering the many past lives of the mansion itself, he enters a murky underworld of gossip, neighborhood scandal, and intrigue.

David Dominé lives in Louisville, Kentucky, where he teaches foreign languages and translation at Bellarmine University. In addition to an MFA in Writing from Spalding University, he earned an MA in Spanish Literature from the University of Louisville and an MA in German Literature from the University of California at Santa Barbara. He also completed studies in literary translation at the Karl-Franzens Universität in Graz, Austria, and attended law school in Louisville. In addition to a dozen non-fiction books on wide-ranging topics, he has published numerous articles, short stories, poems, and translations.
Whenever he can, David likes to travel and he often leads study groups through Europe and Latin America. He's traveled to about 70 of the world's countries and hopes to see the remaining 125 or so before he kicks the bucket. A native of Wisconsin, he has lived in the Philippines, Mexico, Germany, Austria, Italy, and Spain, but he has called Louisville home since 1993. Almost as much as traveling, he enjoys cooking, eating, writing, and old houses.
In 1999, he bought a six-bedroom Victorian home, which the previous owner insisted was haunted. His subsequent time in the Old Louisville historic district led him to write books about its quirky residents and beautiful architecture. Not surprising, Kentucky spirits come alive in his narratives, which often showcase the cultural landscape of his adopted state. His true-crime book A Dark Room in Glitter Ball City deals with the 2009 murder of drag queen Jamie Carroll in a spooky mansion in Old Louisville that once doubled as a sanatorium.
