Much to my amazement I just received “Breaking News” that the infamous Elizabeth Short, “Black Dahlia” murder was originally solved in 1947, just weeks after its commission. The case was “cracked” by one of the world’s leading detectives who had been asked by LAPD brass to assist them in their attempts to identify her killer.
In an EXCLUSIVE with noted British film and screenwriter, Scott McQuaid, the distinguished detective sat down and narrated his complete 1947 investigation on tape. The interview runs about 53 minutes as we listen to deduction after deduction from this World Class Detective as he “makes his case.”
