A Response From the Family of Elizabeth Short

© Larry Harnisch 2003

I am in regular communication with Elizabeth Short's sisters and while I didn't want to trouble them by asking about the photos in "Black Dahlia Avenger" since it didn't seem necessary, they contacted me after seeing them in People magazine.

The family says: "The first thing I noticed was that [it] was definitely not Betty. She never wore flowers all over her head only one on her ear. She always loved Hawaii and I think it made her think of that and Dorothy Lamour."
