    I have followed your investigations for some time with great interest. Unfortunately, I am one of your deaf readers who cannot comprehend audio files. Would someone be kind enough to briefly summarize this report in writing? Thanks

    A little play on words on my part.
    The recording is a twenty-second sound-byte from the JEOPARDY TV SHOW, hosted by Alex Trebek. Here is the conversation:
    Jeopardy contestant No. 1: I’ll try category Back In Black for $800 Alex.
    Jeopardy Host Alex Trebek: Ex-LAPD detective Steve Hodel thinks his own father killed Elizabeth Short, nicknamed this _______?
    Alex: Steve.
    Contestant Steve: What is the Black Widow?
    Alex: No. Alex or Celeste? (No response. None of the contestants got the answer.)
    Alex: Who was the Black Dahlia? (beep, beep, beep) Less than a minute to go. Celeste, you select.
