Old Hollywood

This murder victim of one of Hollywood’s most notorious unsolved murders was no innocent starlet.

She was a high priced call girl with her madam being the ex girlfriend of an infamous mobster.

She also had several famous men as her clientele. In the weeks leading up to her death she slept with two Oscar winning/nominated triple threats (actor-director-writer), two B-list actors turned criminals, a newspaper editor turned nightclub owner, studio heads and the aforementioned mobster. He had her killed so she wouldn’t talk and had a local surgeon who specialized in slicing up cadavers for research labs cut up the starlet’s remains and had his goons dump them near the home of his ex girlfriend.

Needless so say she wasn’t scared and conspired with some of his enemies to have him killed.
