Defrosting Cold Cases Website to examine Black Dahlia Case on July 15

Set your Tweet Alarms for Friday, July 15, 2011  Noon-1:00 PM


Greetings from Los Angeles!

Have recently discovered an interestng and highly informative website called, DEFROSTING COLD CASES.   Definitely a CLASS ACT.

 Its webmaster is a man using the name VIDSTER who has a very impressive backgound as “a lawyer with a long history in the fields of criminology and human rights defense; however, I am not a practitioner.” See his bio here.

I recommend you check out his website and he is clearly one of the “good guys” who is obviously fully supports the victims, their families, and the search for TRUTH.

On July 15, 2011 the VIDSTER will be hosting a themed chat on Twitter on the Black Dahlia Case. (Friday Noon-1pm EST on Twitter. See his website for details)

I don’t have a Twitter account, so I won’t be there, but have offered to respond to all questions submitted to me through the Vidster. See his ASK STEVE for details. Anyone from my website that would like to participate in his livechat and or ask a question just follow Vidster’s instructions, and I’ll do my best to respond.





Author’s Note- Hard at work on Book III

Wanted to let you know that one of the reasons I haven’t been blogging as regular as I would like is because I’m pushing hard on Book III, which will be a major investigative  update focused on the Black Dahlia investigation. 2004-2011 My goal is to finish it in the next six-months. 

Happy Summer to All,


Steve Hodel

    Best of luck with this Steve! Wonder what’s happening with the movie rights to Book I.

    Hi Brian:
    Thanks. The rights have reverted back to me now. Love to see it made, but only if it is done RIGHT. Could be a real classic. The script is real tricky and tough due to the time factors. No easy task. Saw John Sayles, LONE STAR a few nights ago, which is a terrific film and he really made it work well. He’s the kind of writer/director that is needed for BDA.
