No Google search drives more traffic to the L.A. Daily Mirror than some permutation of “Carole Lombard Death Scene” or “Carole Lombard’s Head” or “Carole Lombard Decapitated” or “Did They Ever Find Carole Lombard’s Wedding Ring?” And as I have noted before, there are no Carole Lombard death scene photos here. I wouldn’t publish them if there were any.
But Eve Golden reports after reading Robert Matzen’s “Fireball” that Lombard’s body was never photographed, at least according to Matzen.
Her body was found under a wing, so is not in any crash site photos, and none were taken at the morgue at the behest of the studios, because they knew damn well they would be leaked! She was ID’d through dental records.
And Eve says the book was much better than she expected.
So folks, stop looking for Carole Lombard snuff pictures. There aren’t any.
