Black Dahlia Murder Solved!

Hello, again, dear BLA Subscribers:

Well, it took only 56 years, but the question of who killed the Black Dahlia has finally been solved, at least if you believe Steve Hodel, the retired LAPD Homicide Detective whose new book, Black Dahlia Avenger, the true story, claims to prove that Elizabeth Short's killer was the dude's own father, a respected surgeon name of Dr. George Hill Hodel, and that she was killed in the family home on Franklin and Normandie, in a house built by Frank Lloyd Wright, which still stands today. I'm reading the book now, and it is pretty convincing. Either way, that house is something to behold, so I went down there and snapped it. This would be the second time, I guess, that I am adding a house, not a grave, to BLA. The first was the Six Feet Under filming location. Anyway, have a look:

Along with this new pic, we've added the newly marked Westwood graves of Carroll O'Connor and Carrie Hamilton, daughter of Carol Burnett, as well as composer Ray Conniff.

Not a huge update, but a fun one. As always, stay tuned to the 'What's New' page for all update details, as the newsletter has been a bit problematic in getting out to all of you lately.

On a personal note, if you'd like to catch a glimpse of me and the wife on TV, catch the Christopher Lowell Show on May 12, on the Discovery Channel. In my area, there are two shows airing every day, and I'm not yet sure if we're on the 2:00 or 3:00 show, but if you check the Discovery Channel web site, look for show #506, titled 'Six Feet Under.' Yes, this show has to do with 'designer death' and we are appearing along with Tyler Cassity, owner of Hollywood Forever Cemetery, and a set decorator from the show Six Feet Under named Alison Sideris. You can see a clip from my own Biography Video, and see me and my wife, Jennifer, interviewed by Mr. Lowell.

Thanks, as always, for your continued support. Your comments and suggestions and notes are always welcome.
