Steve Hodel, 2005, Black Dahlia Avenger page546 Photograph No. I. is the fact that in my criminal investigations, I get to wear all the hats. I am the gumshoe “in the field,” knocking on doors and taking routine witness statements, as well as being the detective supervisor sitting behind the desk, reviewing his/my own reports for accuracy. In this chapter, I will present my own reinvestigation and offer direct evidence disproving my initial claim that Elizabeth Short and Photo No. 1 in my father’s album (the woman standing by the horse statue) were one and the same person.
I have changed NOTHING. These are her verbatim descriptions, written some twenty or thirty years past. I have, however, inserted in bold my own comments to assist the reader in understanding or to clarify a specific person, place, etc. One further explanation is needed.

So, they are not actually her “writings” so much as they are a conversational storytelling of her life, which was then transcribed into a 1200-page rough draft manuscript.
Perhaps before opening the pages of Madi’s manuscript, and for those who have not read Black Dahlia Avenger, a little background and brief bio on my mother is in order. Dorothy Jean Harvey was born in New York (Central Park West) on April 15, 1906. Her parents moved to Los Angeles sometime in the teens. They had two children, Dorothy and her younger brother, Eugene. Dorothy was exceptionally precocious, as well as strikingly beautiful—a dangerous combination! Ever the free spirit, she was named Elysian Park’s, “Queen of the May” in 1917.
