Georgette Bauerdorf cold case

Post by ophion1031 on August 5th 2015, 11:19 pm

Georgette Bauerdorf was just 20 years old at the time of her murder (in 1944) and was well known as the heiress to an oil fortune. At the time of her murder, Georgette was living in West Hollywood, California and her father, stepmother and sister were all living in New York City. Georgette was known to have spent time volunteering as a junior hostess in a Hollywood canteen where she often was seen dancing with enlisted men. According to accounts from friends, Georgette had a serviceman boyfriend who lived in El Paso. Authorities later revealed this man to be Private Jerome M. Brown from Chicago, Illinois. The day before she was killed, Georgette purchased an airline ticket to go to El Paso.

The night before she was killed, Georgette left work at the canteen and went home. During the same day she had met up with her father’s secretary for lunch and a shopping trip. The secretary, Mrs. Rose Gilbert, had said that Georgette was not distressed and in fact was in quite high spirits during their meeting. That same night however, Georgette is believed to have been attacked by a man who was lying in wait. According to police, the assailant had unscrewed the light bulb in the light outside Georgette’s apartment, his fingerprints were later found on the light bulb.

Georgette’s body was found face down in the bathtub and while her jewelry and other valuables were not taken, cash was stolen from her purse. Oddly enough however, a visible roll of $2 bills and a number of sterling silver pieces were not taken even though they were visible. Georgette’s sister’s car was also missing from the property and was later found in Los Angeles after it had run out of gas. According to the coroner, Georgette had put up a fight against her attacker and had bruises all over her body. Ultimately, Georgette was strangled and had a piece of towel put down her throat. A number of servicemen were questioned in Georgette’s murder but no one was ever found guilty.

Very good question. None that I know of, but could be possible I suppose.

I have done a little research and I think there is more than a good chance that there is a Black Dahlia connection. Maybe not the same killer(s) but some sort of a connection seems very plausible.
