Note: This is an encore post from 2006.
I recently obtained an original copy of The Times’ March 28, 1971, story “Farewell, My Black Dahlia,” which includes the account of the “Boy on the Bicycle.” Here’s a color picture of the purported “Bobby Jones.”
Bonus: Here’s the South Norton Avenue neighborhood as it was in 1971. Notice that you can see the Hollywood sign. Notice that this means the photographer shot the wrong side of the street.
