Dear fans of Piu Eatwell’s “Black Dahlia, Red Rose” (I know there’s at least a few of you because you write to me):
Leslie Dillon was absolutely, positively in San Francisco when Elizabeth Short was killed.
Nothing else matters. Not allegations of police corruption, not claims about coverups, nothing about what may have happened at the Aster Motel. All of that is merely camouflage to conceal the fact that Dillon was hundreds of miles away when the killing occurred.
End of argument.
Hello Mr. Harnisch and thank you for your articles re BD. I’m curious (this is NOT a challenge) as to the proof that Leslie Dillon was in SF at the time of ES’ murder. Maybe there’s a link you could point me to? I realize you are extremely busy so no worries– again thank you.
Frank Jemison memo, Nov. 23, 1949 “Evidence and Declarations Tending to Connect or Disconnect Leslie Dillon to the Murders of Elizabeth Short, Jeanne French and Gladys Kern.” I don’t think it’s online.
