Black Dahlia: Leslie Dillon, Paul De River and the LAPD – Part 3

The Mirror

The Mirror (that would be the other Mirror) jumps on the Dahlia Murder “Solved!” bandwagon.


Nobody “enjoys a good murder” as much as the Brits, so we are seeing a wave of publicity for Piu Eatwell’s new book, “Black Dahlia, Red Rose,” in which she “solves” the Black Dahlia case.

Executive summary: Brit writer stumbles into mass of disorganized documents and makes an elementary mistake, deciding that a suspect who was cleared in the 1940s was part of a massive conspiracy and coverup involving the police and “organized crime.”

CEO summary: Leslie Dillon was in San Francisco at the time Elizabeth Short was killed. Everything else is merely window dressing.
