    I'm sure she wasn't told much growing up, But she must have heard about it as an adult. I would like to know her thoughts.

    I'm hoping they at least told her good things about her mother and didn't paint her to be the loose party girl that the papers of the day did.

    the papers really did a number on Jean. I wonder what she really was like. She did seem to live fast.
    I wonder if the LAPD files on her murder are intact or if they are a mess like the Black Dahlia files.

    I wasn't aware that Lynn (Dexters wife) was formerly Lynn Lasky, having been married to Ely Lasky a close associate of Mickey Cohen the gangster who went missing 3 days after Jean went missing. Small world methinks. Sometimes, too small.

    Wow Small world indeed. It sure seems like there could be a connection there.
    Even if it were something like someone doing a favor for Dexter and Lynn.

    I'm surprised the second wife had mob connections. I was under the impression that she had been sqeaky clean. It seems strange to me that they were able to question Jean's lifestyle in court when Lynn was also associated with the mob.

    Are Lynn and Ely Lasky still alive. Interesting indeed. I don't believe in coincidence.

    According to the post above by Robin Hood, Lansky went missing shortly after Jean.

    Two different people Momtolil, Lasky and Lansky. Have a look at the bethshort link.

    The case is featured on MSNBC's website today:

    http://usnews.msnbc.msn.com/_news/20...h-is-a-mystery

    "It's absolutely a classic noir mystery," said Denise Hamilton, a former LA Times reporter turned novelist. She reveals that her mystery, "The Last Embrace," was inspired by the Spangler case."

    "You have a beautiful, young starlet. Brunette. She's sultry. She's tall. She's leggy. And she's trying to make it in Hollywood," Hamilton said.

    Long Cool Woman...

    I wonder if she inspired the Hollies as well:

    ...
    A pair of forty fives made me open my eyes
    My temperature started to rise
    She was a long cool woman in a black dress
    Just five nine
    Beautiful
    Tall
    With just one look I was a bad mess
    'Cause that long cool woman had it all.
    ...

    Found this link: http://www.mariamusikka.com/jeanspangler_timeline.htm. Form some reason, I can't copy and paste it here. In that link, there are more information. I don't know where the webmaster of that link got the Frenso part from.

    Also I am looking for her weight and height so I can look thru DoeNetwork for any possible match.
