Steve Hodel claims repeatedly in his “Black Dahlia Avenger” franchise that his father,
George Hodel, killed his secretary, Ruth Spaulding. It’s even in Wikipedia.
But, no, nobody was suspected in the death of poor old Ruth Spaulding because it wasn’t a homicide. It was a suicide.
Of course, that doesn’t suit the purposes of the “Black Dahlia Avenger” franchise. But it happens to be true. How terribly inconvenient.
