Black Dahlia: The Non-Smoking Gun – George Hodel Files Part 10


Well anyway, she hasn’t said she’d committed incest or killed the Black Dahlia!!!

(I wonder if Hodel was talking to Theodore Kolline, who was apparently staying with him during his divorce.)

And here is the Feb. 27, 1950, installment of the bugging of Dr. George “Evil Genius” Hodel’s purported murder HQ, in which Ellen is — once again — crying.

The George Hodel files Part 1 | Part 2 | Part 3 | Part 4 | Part 5 | Part 6 | Part 7 | Part 8 | Part 9

You better take a generous supply of penicillin!!!

Discuss having socks in the morning. They talk of his having a cold. She is helping him to undress. She wants some love tonight, but he refuses her. He wants to sleep alone.

The Evil Genius wants to sleep alone?


Phone rings, 12 times, Hodel finally answers but could not make out what was said!!!!


I have some business in Detroit for a few days!!!

See, I told you the Evil Genius designed the Edsel!


Hodel tells her [Ellen] she can collect $10 per week social security for 26 weeks — tells her if any lady asks to tell them she has only been getting $50. per mo. instead of $100. to avoid income tax. Ellen is crying.


Hodel and Ellen in bedroom – not much conversation mostly whispered. Sounds indicate both in bed, probably making love!!!
