My late father-in-law, Frank Bristow, who was the media spokesman for Jet Propulsion Laboratories in Pasadena, CA for 24 years (he was the guy who announced to the press the successes and failures of NASA's unmanned lunar landings and the searches for life on Mars, Jupiter, Saturn, etc.) was also an LA Times reporter from 1950 -1960. Among his many assignments was this one,  the Lana Turner / Cheryl Crane / Johnny Stompanato murder scandal.
