Los Angeles, California
Elizabeth Short’s Birthday
Today would have been murder victim Elizabeth Short’s 96th Birthday.
In another bizarre synchronicity, the below photograph of Dr. George Hill Hodel was taken by the press photographer during his lecture at the Los Angeles Police Department Police Academy where Dr. Hodel, then Head of L.A. County Health Department (V.D. Czar) was lecturing police officers on the newly established “May Act” making prostitution a Federal offense during WWII. The date of the lecture when this photograph was taken was JULY 29, 1942, which would have been Elizabeth Short’s 18th birthday. Investigation indicates that it appears that Dr. Hodel first met Elizabeth in Los Angeles that either that same year, or possibly in 1943.
As supported by the LA DA secret Hodel/Black Dahlia Files, they would date off and on for the next four years and after Dr. Hodel returned from China in 1946 Elizabeth would flee for her life, hideout and then be kidnapped off the streets of Los Angeles by Dr. Hodel and after extended torture be slain at his Franklin/Sowden residence on January 15, 1947.
