George Hodel in March 1979 (age 71) seen here with his top INRA-ASIA Exec, Leo Murray in Hong Kong.
Leo was also a helicopter pilot (seen here in his Royal Hong Kong Auxiliary Air Force uniform.) The occasion of this photo was the two men celebrating the opening of a new INRA-ASIA HQ
office in Hong Kong.
GHH no mustache
In the above 1974 photo, we see George with a rather faint graying mustache which would likely be impossible to see from across the street in the dark of night. (Think Zodiac’s 1969 Paul Stine cab-murder witnesses who were looking out a second story window 150′ away.)

The 1979 photo from Leo Murray serves as my rebuttal to those naysayers that claim that “George Hodel was never clean shaven and always wore a mustache.”
The photo was sent to me by my longtime friend, Leo Murray who came across it while going through some of his old albums. (I first met Leo in Hong Kong back in the early 1970s, while on tour with my father of his INRA ASIA offices. Leo was in charge of the HK office and remained as a loyal executive to dad for several decades. Leo, now long retired and a world traveler continues to reside in Hong Kong.
(And, to those who might wonder, like I did, “Did Leo in his close position to George over the decades, ever suspect George’s crimes? The answer is –no. Like myself, Leo was aware of some of George’s failings, and his need to control people, but he never saw or suspected any criminality.
Thanks for sending me the photo Leo. Continued Safe Travels to you and your beautiful wife, Elaine.
