Welcome to the Dahlia House?

After reading historian Larry Harnish’s debunkings of the theory that Los Angeles physician George Hodel was responsible for the 1947 murder of Elizabeth Short, aka the Black Dahlia, I’m quite skeptical of Hodel’s guilt in that never-solved crime.

Still, I was interested to read in January Magazine that the famous Sowden House—where Hodel lived in the latter half of the 1940s, and which has been postulated as the site of Short’s slaying (her body was supposedly transported from there to a vacant lot in south L.A.)—“recently sold for $4.7 million.” Quoting from a piece in Britain’s Daily Mail, January explains that “The home has now been bought by Dan Goldfarb, founder of Canna-Pet, which makes non-psychoactive cannabis supplements for animals. He told the L.A. Times he plans to make the property into a ‘cannabis oasis.’”
