Weather-wise, it's a Sunday afternoon that could have been lifted from a long-gone Los Angeles: sunshine, sizzling blue sky, slight breeze. The air smells good--a touch of bus exhaust laced with Pacific. John Gilmore, all six feet and seven decades of him, stands in the middle of Pershing Square in the middle of the city that's been the backdrop for all the murder and bloodshed and pain and death that he's brought to life in the pages of his books. The square is virtually empty, tranquil even.

A woman acquitted of murder last year in connection to the high-profile slaying of an aspiring model filed a lawsuit Wednesday accusing Santa Monica police of intimidating witnesses and damaging her reputation. Kelly Soo Park, 48, alleges three witnesses who planned to testify on her behalf were scared off or tainted by Santa Monica Police Det. Karen Thompson. “We just want to present to the world and to the court that what's being portrayed in the media now is an incomplete story,” Park's attorney, Ron Kaye, said of the lawsuit.

He is not in court. He is not even charged with a crime. But looming over the murder trial of a woman accused of strangling an aspiring model and actress in her Santa Monica apartment five years ago is a doctor who once dated the victim. A prosecutor told a downtown jury Wednesday that Juliana Redding was killed five days after her father broke off business negotiations with her former boyfriend, Dr. Munir Uwaydah. Deputy Dist. Atty. Stacy Okun-Wiese said that Redding, 21, was slain by one of the doctor's associates, Kelly Soo Park, whose DNA was discovered on the victim's neck, tank top and areas of her apartment.

" 'I'm glad Dean's dead,' said Steve McQueen. 'It makes more room for me.' . . . It was the first conversation I'd had with McQueen since the girl he'd been living with broke off with him and moved in with me." Imagine. Being dude enough to steal McQueen's squeeze and outlive the guy (not to mention your best friend, James Dean) and tell the tale.

It was surprising to read that Peter Gilstrap considers the Black Dahlia murder "still unsolved" ("On Top of the Underbelly," Sept. 17). Having met both John Gilmore and the late Dr. George Hodel, I'm convinced that the mystery was finally put to rest by former Los Angeles Police Det. Steve Hodel. His book merges personal memories with a methodical investigation of the long-cold crime to reveal a bloody history that's stranger than fiction. Let readers decide for themselves at www.blackdahliaavenger.

* * 1/2 Paul Bley/John Gilmore/Paul Motian/Gary Peacock, "Turning Point," Improvising Artists. This '60s quartet session steps beyond the bop world into more abstract music--a little too coldly abstract. Bley's spare, ruminative piano negotiates intricate rhythmic changes supplied by principal writer Carla Bley (Paul's ex-wife) and ably delivered by Motian and Peacock.

They say that true leaders come forward in times of need, so it somehow seemed appropriate that Pasadena forward Ibris Jones, well, stepped forward. Jones, whose first name in Arabic means leader, scored 27 points as Pasadena defeated Crescenta Valley, 82-70, in a Pacific League game Friday night at Crescenta Valley. Both Pasadena (14-2, 2-0 in league play) and Crescenta Valley (10-5, 1-1) are the only Pacific League teams with winning overall records.
