January 15, 2024
Birch Bay, Washington
*Big Thank You to a listener correction on the name of the interviewer. I misposted with the name of George Knapp (Host of Coast to Coast, an interview I had done preceding this interview.) This interview is with KFI crime reporter Steve Gregory.
Today is the 77th Anniversary of the murder of Elizabeth “Black Dahlia” Short and the posing of her body on a vacant lot at 3825 S. Norton Avenue in the Liemert Park District of Los Angeles.
Below I am reposting an interview I did two years ago with KFI crime reporter Steve Gregory.
It provides a basic overview of the crime and investigation considering the time restraints. The interview runs for 70 minutes with no commercials.
Rest In Peace, Elizabeth.

    How many people are you going to claim committed the murder. The article you wrote about your half-sister did nothing to clear her name. The part that the people you claimed were witnesses and confessed to raping your sister with your father taking part is a lie. In fact they didn’t take the stand or confess to any crime. Now you can go down the rabbit hole of conspiracies but hurts your cause more than helps. Did your father commit murder? Possibly/probably but the way you accuse others as well as him makes zero sense.

      I assume you are referencing the 1947 Elizabeth Short murder then jumping to the 1949 Incest Trial.
      I am accusing, just Dr. George Hill Hodel of actually committing the surgical torture murder. Fred Sexton was likely there, but unable to establish that fact. However, I believe Fred Sexton and likely my mother were with George as “the two men and a woman” described by LAPD officer McBride who came out of the bar with the victim Short, just six-hours before the crime. This makes both accomplices to the kidnap/murder. You are obviously aware of the many “Early Years” crimes committed by “two men and a woman” associated with George Hodel that I have investigated and documented prior to the 1947 Black Dahlia murder. You are also seemingly unaware of the arrests and admissions made by Sexton and the two co-defendants testimony at the Preliminary Hearing and later Superior Court trial. Suggest you read BDA I, II and III making a comment that “they didn’t take the stand or confess to any crime.”
