A recent query was made asking about LADA Investigator Walter Morgan’s role in the Black Dahlia investigation. Below is a PDF Post I did way back in September, 2007 “DA Investigator Walter Morgan, The Black Dahlia’s Last Coyote dies at 92.”

I was fortunate enough to be able to locate and interview Walter during my original investigation and his information played a critical role in help solving the case. Below photo shows him being interviewed by Erin Moriarty in 2004 in a Producer David Browning 48 HOURS production, “Black Dahlia Confidential.”

Read his extensive bio and role in the below attached PDF, a tribute to his life and passing on Sept 8, 2007.

    I just watched the 48 Hour Mystery BLACK DAHLIA CONFIDENTIAL on YouTube. It was well done. It showed a photo of Elizabeth’s body location and the onlookers I had not seen before. How many pictures are available of the scene of Elizabeth’s body? Pictures that also show the police, reporters, etc. I think I see Man Ray in 2 of the pictures that are often posted. There is a picture of a policeman in a leather coat and hat and a short man with glasses looking at Elizabeth body. The short man looks a lot like Man Ray to me.,
    The same man is shown walking with his hand up to his brow at 13:44 on the 48 Hours episode.
    Is there a site that has the body location pictures with police and reporters and onlookers? I would think the newspapers and police must have taken more than the half dozen or so that are usually seen.
    Can you publish what you have?

      Steven U:
      No not Man Ray. I can assure you he would not have been anywhere near the crime scene.
      Only and all crime scene photos of personnel at the scene are available on line. I have no additional ones.
