Elizabeth "Black Dahlia" Short's 90th Birthday
July 29, 2014
Los Angeles, California
Today would have been Elizabeth Short’s 90th birthday.
May she REST IN PEACE.
Also, by pure HAPPENSTANCE today, Elizabeth’s birthday, is also the day I retired from LAPD some 28 years ago.
And, by a double-happenstance, today is also the birthday of LAPD Sgt. Finis Brown, who was the lead-investigator in the 1947 murder of Elizabeth Short.

RIP Elizabeth Short
Saw you on the news tonight Steve. Hopefully it helps to get the investigation moving along, especially with the property search.
Hi George: Yes, did a talk at Rancho Palos Verdes Seniors today. Nice turnout of about 100. Half of them were living in LA at the time of the murder in 1947. CBS did a short interview after the talk. I will post a short mention on my blog site. Best, Steve
