There are many reasons why LAPD and the DA’s Bureau of Investigation in 1950, did not obtain a warrant and attempt to pursue, arrest and extradite Dr. George Hill Hodel and prosecute him for the murder of Elizabeth “Black Dahlia” Short. We now KNOW they had the evidence and they had his tape recorded “cop out.”
In June, 2006 I was invited to the Pompidou Centre in Paris, France, where I gave an hour talk/PowerPoint presentation on my investigation which was followed with a 45 minute audience Q&A. One of the questions was:
“What has been the response of LAPD to your investigation and book?”
My seven-minute response is excerpted from the talk, which was recorded in full. I answer her question and explain why I believe LAPD chose to seal off the investigation and allow my father to remain free out of country.
