Black Dahlia: Fox News Unearths Leslie Dillon Fiasco in the Black Dahlia Case

And Fox News gets it wrong on the Black Dahlia case in this story by Stephanie Nolasco.

Let’s go over this once more.

The so-called Gangster Squad conducted a rogue, off-the-books and unsanctioned investigation of the Black Dahlia case that infringed on the LAPD Homicide Division’s inquiry into the killing of Elizabeth Short. The Gangster Squad’s rogue operation was led by Dr. Joseph Paul De River under the theory that Leslie Dillon had a split personality and – under this split personality – killed Elizabeth Short.

The Gangster Squad’s unauthorized interference in the case and the resulting Leslie Dillon fiasco triggered a grand jury investigation.

Dillon was cleared when it was established – after a long, thorough investigation – that he was in San Francisco at the time of the killing.

End of story.
