The “Remorseful Rapist” from 1965, one of the items from the Cop Shop Files.
Several weeks ago, I was given a box of material that was cleaned out of the old press room at the LAPD’s Parker Center headquarters, sometimes called “the cop shop.” The box was a jumble of press releases, photographs, artists’ sketches and other items dating from the late 1960s to the early 1980s. I am organizing and cataloging the material and I’ll be posting selected items on a weekly basis.
It will be an interesting ride through old L.A. crimes. I promise.
Coming next week on the L.A. Daily Mirror.
