          Why Man Says He Believes His Father Was A Serial Killer


          March 27, 2019

          Steve Hodel says that after he learned that his father, Dr. George Hodel, was a suspect, at one time, in the mysterious 1947 murder of Elizabeth Short, known as “The Black Dahlia,” he started to investigate. Expecting to exonerate his father, Steve says he was shocked at the evidence he found which led him to believe that George did kill Short – and he says he believes his father may have killed other women as well.

          “I discovered that he’s a serial killer,” Steve says in the video above from Wednesday’s episode of Dr. Phil. “He was an extreme narcissist. He wanted to remain above the fold in the newspapers … He was pure evil.”

          Dr. Robert Schug, a forensic psychologist and professor of criminology at Long Beach State University, weighs in on how the crime scene evidence suggests the type of person who would commit a murder like that of Short’s. And, he sheds light on whether George was a good fit for someone who might commit this type of murder.
