ROOT OF EVIL: THE TRUE STORY of the HODEL FAMILY and the BLACK DAHLIA-
Podcast debuts Wed, Feb 13th.
I have had an opportunity to preview Emmy Award Winning Documentarian Zak Levitt’s, ROOT of EVIL (seven of the eight episodes). After listening to them, I can confirm that the series of family interviews does in fact capture “The True Story.” My family members have in their separate interviews, been brutally honest in conveying their unique experiences (most of them totally new and profoundly shocking to me.) I highly recommend the series which will present our family truths which are far-far stranger than fiction.
LAPD Homicide Detective III Steve Hodel #11394 (Ret.)
“This is a story more than 70 years in the making. The Black Dahlia has generated incredible interest and attention through the years, but nothing has gotten to the heart of the incredibly painful, and ultimately triumphant story of the family that has had to carry the Hodel name – a name synonymous with the most brutal unsolved murder in American history. Through fresh interviews with the Hodel family and a trove of never-before-heard archival audio, we hope Root of Evil will be the most three-dimensional Black Dahlia story yet.”
