sowden for sale

sure, I go to a conference for a couple of hours and I get scooped by Curbed LA. lloyd wright's sowden house on franklin is for sale. the listing is careful to mention it was featured in The Aviator as Howard Hughes' home, and has a more impressive publication resume than some journalists, yet it fails to mention that according to one recent book, the house may also have been the site of the Black Dahlia murder. you would think that being the possible site of one of the most infamous murders in LA's history (and an upcoming Brian De Palma movie) might actually increase the asking price, but the brokers seem eager to ignore that little tidbit of macabre history.
