Black Dahlia: Donald H. Wolfe; ‘Black Dahlia Files’ Fraudster | 1931 – 2015


I’m five years late on this item, but for the record:

Donald H. Wolfe, the fraudster who wrote “The Black Dahlia Files,” died in February 2015.

In 2006, I spent months debunking Wolfe’s book, in which he swiped some of my material without credit and faked – faked – a document from the Los Angeles County district attorney’s office, earning him a lifetime ban.

Here are the links to all those posts from 2006.

Wolfe joins the august company of Janice Knowlton (d. 2003), Will Fowler (d. 2004) and John Gilmore (d. 2016) in the great beyond of Black Dahlia writers.
