OK, let’s have some fun.
Does either of these photographs show Elizabeth Short?
1. The woman on the left is Elizabeth Short.
2. The woman on the right is Elizabeth Short.
3. Both women are Elizabeth Short.
4. Neither woman is Elizabeth Short.
|Woman on left||0|
|Woman on right||11|
Here is the final tally from our unscientific poll. The image on the left was found by Steve Hodel in his father’s belongings and according to Steve Hodel, this establishes a relationship between Dr. George Hodel and Elizabeth Short. The image on the right is cropped from a known photograph of Elizabeth Short.
I should note that Elizabeth Short’s family issued a statement saying that the woman on the left is not Elizabeth Short.
Only two people said both images showed Elizabeth Short — the same number that said neither image showed Elizabeth Short. In contrast, 12 said that only the woman on the right is Elizabeth Short.
