Jan. 23, 1959, Paul Coates
Jan. 23, 1959: Paul Coates is all (or mostly) in favor of ceremonial honors. On the jump, Bobbie Long is found strangled with a nylon stocking a few feet off a dirt road that runs off Don Julian Road between Seventh and Eighth Avenues southwest of the City of Industry. The Mirror News notes the similarity to the killing of Geneva Ellroy in June 1959.

Coates’ column appeared in the L.A. Mirror in 1959 and was republished on latimes.com in 2009. It is available via Archive.org.
