    Great -and epic- news, Larry! Thanks for sharing your methods and deductive reasoning so other writers investigating cold case murders and historical malpractice have some important clues to guide them. Your battles with decades of myths, rumors and lies really honor Elizabeth Short’s tragic life story. There are certainly other famous cold cases in LA that could use your scrupulous eye for detail, perseverance and demand for the whole truth.

    This article was like reading a really good mystery; this clue leads to that clue, away from one direction and then towards another. What a good interviewer and interview-ee. So glad you shared this. Looking forward to when your book is finished.
