January 19, 1947
Los Angeles, California
This crime scene is from the book Death Scenes: A Homicide Detective’s Scrapbook, a sort of macabre scrapbook of crime scenes, mug shots, and other grizzly photographs collected by Detective Jack Huddleston, text by Katherine Dunn, and edited/designed by Sean Tejaratchi.
This particular scene did not include an explanation or names of the victims, and very little information to continue further research. Due to the positioning of the bodies and gun, it appears to be the aftermath a murder-suicide, though the motive is likely lost to time.
