Anything's possible if you have a book to sell.

eyeq360: Dr.Zom: Steve Hodel is full of shiat and a major league attention whore with unresolved Daddy issues.

Agreed.  His father, according to his "research," was responsible for Black Dahlia, the Zodiac murders, and every other serial killing out there.
I'm thinking he would claim that his father was farking Jack the Ripper and was responsible for the disappearance of the Roanoke colonists if he had the chance.


That was a demonic virus... don't you keep up with Supernatural?

I found the same article, attributed to a different author, posted here.
Isn't that just plagiarism?

Yeoman: PandaPorn: lohphat: PandaPorn: I don't get it. If her body was found, who is buried in the basement?

No one. That's where the murder took black before the body was dumped.

So the dog is just smelling where the blood leaked into the dirt? If that's true than that's quite the nose he got there.

The body was completely drained of blood, so yeah, there could well have been a whole lot of blood soaking into the dirt.  And, yeah, dogs have amazing senses of smell.


Cadaver dogs have been known to find unmarked graves over a century old.  Sometimes they can pick up the smell coming out of trees that have grown over the graves.  Actually, I guess most dogs can smell it, they just don't know what it is, or that we might care to know about it.

When the opportunity arose for Hodel to return to his childhood home, he jumped at the chance after producers of the SyFy Channel's Ghost Hunters program arranged it with the current owners.

Last November Hodel, together with retired police Sgt. Paul Dostie of Mammoth Lakes and Buster, a Labrador retriever trained to detect the unique smell of human composition, visited the property.

Once let loose, Buster quickly established four locations in the basement where he could pick up a faint trace of human remains.


The dog gets results and the "Ghost Hunters" don't. There's a shocker.

The Roanoke colonists didn't disappear, they went to Cratoan Island like they were supposed to if the colony got in trouble. It's never been a mystery at all.

Supernatural?  I don't watch that show.
But I do know that Star Trek: The Original Series conclusively proved that Jack the Ripper was an entity called Redjac.

corq: czetie: A Black Dahlia story with no mention of James Ellroy? Journalist fail.

/You LA Noire fans should look him up if you aren't familiar

Seriously that fella is creepier than the stories he writes/researches on. I may be in the minority but I liken him to the William S Burroughs of crime narrative. Still usually am fascinated by his stuff though.


For those unfamiliar with what corq is referring to, Ellroy spent much of his childhood and adolescence conflating in his own mind the Black Dahlia case with the unsolved murder of his own mother, eventually writing novels as a release. So yeah, pretty damn creepy.

RatMaster999: Cadaver dogs have been known to find unmarked graves over a century old.


A grave containing remains is vastly different to a site containing no remains. Cadaver dogs find remains, and like all dogs, can generate false positives based on the behavior of their human handlers.

HenryFnord: From the article's comments:

this is one of the oldest, fakest stories ever to be cooked up...one of the original false flags, and hollywood is still at it. Do some research people. There is more here than meets the eye.

- RealAmerican1 - State of Denial, United States, 03/2/2013 23:14


It's a good thing patriots like this RealAmerican1 are ever vigilant and quick to point out when the US government colludes with Hollywood to deceive the American people, especially when it's for no farking logical reason whatsoever.
