I don’t know how this nonsense gets started. There is nothing to show that Elizabeth Short ever set foot in the Cecil Hotel, as claimed by KABC-TV Channel 7.
Oh dear, oh dear, oh dear:
No, this is utterly untrue. It’s 11 miles from the Cecil Hotel to 39th and Norton. And again, there is nothing to show Elizabeth Short ever set foot in the place.
Let’s have some fun and see if this little nugget of nonsense has made its way into Wikipedia. Any bets? Amazingly enough, the answer is no. Or at least not yet.
