1. Background

In 1947, Elizabeth Short, known as the Black Dahlia, was brutally murdered. The murder remains unsolved; however, George Hodel, a surgeon, was one of the primary suspects. After George Hodels death in 1999, his son, Steve Hodel, a former homicide detective with the Los Angeles County Police Department, desired to learn more about his father and discovered information leading him to believe that George Hodel was the killer of the Black Dahlia.

The podcast is hosted by Hodels great-granddaughters, Yvette Gentile and Rasha Pecoraro, the daughters of Fauna Hodel. Throughout the podcast, the sisters interview their relatives, discuss 70 years of family history, and reveal the ways the family changed after the Black Dahlia case. After her death in September 2017, Fauna Hodels daughters began to sort through the things she left behind. In the podcast, Gentile and Pecoraro analyze audio recordings between Fauna and her mother, Tamar, Georges daughter. Gentile and Pecoraro also reflect upon the weight that the Hodel name carries. They is the first time that the family members have publicly spoken about their past. Gentile and Pecoraro believe that their great-grandfather did kill Elizabeth Short.
