Episode 094 - The Murder of Georgette Bauerdorf

Georgette Bauerdorf Trace Evidence

Twenty year old Georgette Bauerdorf was an oil fortune heiress living in West Hollywood in the 1940s. A very giving and kind woman, Georgette garnered a reputation for offering money, meals and even places to stay for soldiers preparing to ship out for World War 2.

In her evenings, Georgette worked as a junior hostess at the famous Hollywood Canteen, a club designed to give soliders a last good taste of America before heading to Europe or the Pacific. Here Georgette met and befriended many soldiers, dancing, laughing and spending time together.

In October of 1944, Georgette had plans to fly to Texas to meet a soldier she'd gotten close to. Unfortunately, she would never make the trip. On the evening of October 11th, Georgette was murdered in her apartment and seventy-five years later, her killer's identity remains unknown. Who murdered Georgette and why? Was it jealousy? Was it random? Or was it committed by someone she knew and trusted?
