Black Dahlia: Dr. George Hodel, Janice Knowlton and the Black Dahlia Case

image

Aug. 8, 1998: A post on the old usenet alt.news-media by Janice Knowton was the first to publicly link Dr. George Hodel and the Black Dahlia case.

At this point, George Hodel was alive but would die in a bit less than a year. He was never publicly identified as a suspect – and certainly not a “prime suspect” before then, despite claims by the “Black Dahlia Avenger” franchise.

Knowlton killed herself in 2004, a year after “Black Dahlia Avenger” was published.

Here’s the link.
