LA. Weekly has taken a deep dive into the Jeanne French case. I won’t get into all of it here, except to show why Dr. George Hodel didn’t kill Jeanne French.
Here’s a partial print of the killer’s shoe from the Jeanne French crime scene. Investigators determined that it came from a man’s Size 6 or Size 7 shoe while Dr. Hodel had, according to relatives, “very large feet.”
And if the shoe doesn’t fit, you must acquit.
