The George Hodel files Part 1 | Part 2


Phone — Answered by Hodel. Called person on other end “Baby Doll!!!”


Hodel stated that it was six o’clock, that he had to leave at seven, that he would be back at twelve!!!  Women of L.A. look out! The Evil Genius is on the prowl!!

Shower noise! Walking in house!!!


Are there any more cops around?

Do you think anyone knew that they were under surveillance? Hmmmm.


Door slams — someone’s movements in house — goes to bathroom — urinates!!!

What’s this? Hodel can’t find the maid’s keys?

Just another day of depravity and death at the Evil Genius’ murder HQ!!!

    Are you trying to get rid of your subscribers? Preaching to the converted is rarely useful.

      I’m doing this because I am sick of hearing what is purportedly in these transcripts, based on cherry-picking a few statements rather than letting people see the entire file in all its glorious tedium. It’s boring. It’s dull. It’s tedious. I feel sorry for the investigators who had to spend days listening to this silliness in hopes of getting something incriminating. If you find it too dull, tell your friends. And come back in a month!

    Larry, have you ever heard from Young Master Hodel? He MUST know of your (and our) disdain by now!
