FBLA has a far more interesting in-box than you do:

I am a detective with the Boulder County Sheriff’s Office in Boulder, CO and
am investigating a murder from 1954. One of the people who has surfaced in the case is a Jack Richardson, who had a studio at 1117 Western Avenue, Los
Angeles, specializing in “Figure, Fashion, and Pinup” for amateurs and professionals. Richardson was murdered prior to 1962, but was a well known photographer in Hollywood. My question is: Do you have any works by Richardson and do you know any more about him? He was in his 40’s when he was shot.

Detective Steven Ainsworth, of the Boulder, CO’s Sheriff’s dept. added that Richardson provided cameras and models and space–sort of an early day soft porn studio. He was shot to death in the study of him home while looking at his stamp collection.

Don’t you love the stamp collection? Hollywood history mavens with any bits of knowledge about this tantalizing story should email FBLA.

Is this the next Black Dahlia?

And writers–when you win an Edgar, be sure to mention FBLA.
