    This is by far the best article I have ever read describing the amazing intersection of your life with that of Elizabeth Short. Can’t wait to read your latest book!
    Best regards,

    • Steve Hodel says:

      Hi Jim: Yes, great reportage by Daniel and Anne Velasquez. Both are topnotch journalists. Well written and exceptionally accurate. Both are real pros.

  2. Hi Steve,

    Given the length and depth of your investigation the Velasquez’ article in the South Pasadenan is an excellent compilation of pertinent facts. Facts such as former Deputy DA Steven Kay’s quote: “I have no doubt in my mind that George Hodel murdered both Elizabeth Short and Jeanne French,” said Kay, after carefully reviewing Steve Hodel’s investigation. “And were he alive today and were the witnesses alive, I would have no problem in filing two counts of murder against Dr. George Hodel, and I believe if I took that case in front of a jury that I would convict him.”

    Looking forward to reading the new book: “Black Dahlia Avenger III”.


    • Steve Hodel says:

      Thanks Robert. Yes, and we’ve come a hell of a long way down the evidentiary trail since Head Deputy DA Kay’s legal opinion back in 2003. Best, Steve
