NBC news reporter, Patrick Healy’s follow-up piece, “Ex-Cop Cites New Evidence His MD Father Was Serial Killer” aired last night on NBC’s Nightly News. NBC Reporter Healy‘s original coverage of Buster’s alerts was presented in 2013, as, “Search Dog Finds Potential Evidence in “Black Dahlia” Murder.” New chapter detailing all the new findings, full soil analysis report, and how the new evidence potentially links to the additional 1940s “Lone Woman Murders” just updated and now available on Amazon. Also included is chapter on new DNA evidence found at the L.A. Police Historical Museum which can potentially link George Hodel to newly discovered evidence. (Avenger mailing in LAPD evidence).
June 2, 2014 Update D.E. commenting in an Email after viewing the NBC Patrick Healy video writes: “… He [Reporter Healy] did make a few errors: “fled in the late 40′s.” should read: fled in early 1950.” He quotes you as saying, in reference to Elizabeth Short, “All her remains are accounted for.” What about the breast that was never recovered and to which you speculate was taken by the killer as a trophy?”
My response to D.E.:
You are correct; a large section of Elizabeth Short’s right breast was cut from her upper torso by her killer and never found. This “human remains” could well have been a “trophy” either kept or buried in the inner courtyard or near our residence. We know from L.A. Times reporter Steve Lopez’s article on my original investigation that his “source,” when interviewed, informed him, that “something was buried at the house.” We also know that LAPD in their official reports during the 1950 stakeout suspected and documented their suspicions that a body or bodies were buried at the Hodel residence. If human remains are in fact buried on the up-slope, my belief, as indicated in the Healy interview is, they are more likely those of: Jean Spangler, and or Mimi Boomhower, and or the unidentified woman that was assaulted and beaten with a pipe by George Hodel and Baron Harringa, in the basement, on the night of February 18, 1950. But, can we absolutely rule out the missing body parts of Elizabeth Short in Buster’s alert? No, we cannot.
