The Sowden, aka the Jaws House, was built in 1927 for artist John Sowden, and it's shown up everywhere from "The Aviator" to "90210." Former LAPD homicide detective Steve Hodel's family lived in the Sowden in the late forties, and in his 2003 book "Black Dahlia Avenger," he claims his father, physician George Hodel, killed Black Dahlia Elizabeth Short there in early 1947. In the book, Hodel describes the living room's "floor-to-ceiling bookcase that concealed a secret room, accessible only to those who knew how to open the hidden door."
