The Golden Gate Park Tunnel Tragedy

Episode 185 takes us to the West Coast, just after prohibition, when a girl turns up dead, strangled, and “violated” as they say, in Golden Gate Park, just after being unceremoniously ejected from a rich man’s hotel apartment after refusing his advances. The man has an alibi. See if you buy it.
