Investigation Discovery: Crime Obsession with Traci Stumpf- Black Dahlia Interview with Steve Hodel

July 22, 2020
Los Angeles, California
Here’s a six-minute video interview I did with Traci Stumpf giving a quick overview of my Black Dahlia investigation. Ironically, and synchronistically, without her being aware, she posted it to air back on October 10, 2019, which just happened to be the birthday of my father, Dr. George Hill Hodel.

    Steve, Paraphrasing one of your comments to me on your mom’s short story blog……‘God is laughing loudly’ as the fruit of Dorothy Hodel’s marriage to GHH produced a voice who clearly could not & would not be silenced, opening the door to so many “unsolved” murders, so many in CA! I refer you to a Netflx series that might resonate with you….”Bloodline”….keep in mind as you watch, no… are not John, but Danny! Watch to the very end & you will see😓! Ay!… the piper does get paid and sometimes it is hard to be involved when the truth must be told but ya just can’t run from it👍!! See any similar stories like yours in today’s Headlines?🤔! Await the Early Years! Pat O’ 😎🌵

      Patricia O:
      Yes, the House of Hodel is definitely right out of Greek Tragedies 101.
      I’ll check out Bloodlines. Haven’t seen it. Just finished Season 6 of the French police procedural SPIRAL, which I got totally hooked into. (That’s a bigtime time investment considering each Season had ten or twelve episodes. Very dark and noir, but was fascinated by the “good and evil” dualities in each character and very fine acting if you don’t mind subtitles, which I don’t mind, but know they bother some. Really good acting and dialogue but seventy hours is a lot of watching.
