    She was only 20? She really did a lot with her life in such a short time. It's too bad that women feel they need a man to make their life complete. I just wish she had the time to get to know herself, instead of getting married, then getting another older boyfriend.

    if you get more interested in Dorothys saga you will know better- its very interesting. Dorothy felt she owed it to Paul since Paul talked her into doing Playboy but thats just the start of it....


    PS this brings a good point- Nicole B Simpson was certainly not the 1 case of domestic violence; Dorothy was in a tormented violent & semi-abusive relationship & marriage. If Paul went to trial he would have been found guilty of battering his wife-mentally

    I know I've mentioned this before, but the head of security where I used to work was the cop who 'solved' the case. I wasn't impressed, it was a murder/suicide, how hard could it have been to solve?

    When you look at Dorothy and compare her to the blow up doll females that seem popular today, its like night and day. She was naturally pretty and the chicks today are just sad.

    Sometimes I wonder. If Dorothy stayed in Vancouver, maybe see would have married some blue collar guy, a firemen or a truck driver, and been much happier.

    Yes she planned to study family law. Of course she would be happy with any other man too.

    I so agree, and also wonder that.

    If she lived, I think she would have had a somewhat successful career in films, and television.

    I could imagine her in a "Dallas" type show. Eventually marrying well then ending up on "Real Housewives"...

    Of course with her taste in men, she could have ended up with OJ!

    I just made a tribute video to Dorothy:

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3kGn...ature=youtu.be

    I made a point of not putting any pictures of her murderer in it.

    according to Max Baer Jr this was all Paul's idea so I think she would have divorced Paul, lived her short-famed life, then chosen to do something less public & a little more private & normal.

    Paul was a cancerous tumor and a demented fuck. He has no legacy...just a shattered life of complete failure.

    some just may even feel sorry for the guy- a drug addict, a drug seller in Canada and not even a good one, then here an a$$hole. I don't feel sorry but as Louise even said it was between Paul and Dorothy, Paul wanted her, she did not, took her life & took his own. No-one else was at fault. I just wish someone went with her that day as a witness or went with Dorothy to save her.

    For me the take away is, if you are in a bad relationship and your significant other want to meet "one last time" to discuss anything, split up the coin collection, collect your things - whatever - take someone with you!

    Exactly. Years ago I read an article about this very thing. Even if the spouse has never been violent, never tell him you're leaving; wait until he's not around and leave. And after, never meet him alone. because you never know how he will react to your decision. It may sound cowardly, but it's better than dead.

    no doubt but she was so naieve. I am sure he was verbally abusive but even so never once did Dorothy think it would be so bad; I do wish she had someone there. Even Louise too(?) so they could run together out of the house

    Probably already posted this somewhere, but the July before we married, Nabo and I had trouble to the extent I laid plans to leave him. So I started downsizing my belongings so that I could move out as soon as he left for work. Fortunately, he started treating me better and I didn't need to move.

    Its really scary, isn't it? I had an infant and that pretty much sealed the deal for me. I didn't want him to grow up thinking it was normal to treat a woman like that.

    It is. He never laid a hand on me the whole time we were together, but he did threaten me that night. And for several years after that I went around with my car keys in my pocket because was afraid he'd do it again. And he did many years later and my big mouth shouted "If you do that again I will move in with Sissy!" Yikes! But he just went back to bed and he never ever threaten me again. But, man, he had a wicked temper, and I shudder at what might have happened.

    I've just managed to get hold of the book Killing Of The Unicorn by Peter Bogdanovich. I read how they were both found and it seems to be one of the more graphic accounts than what is usually posted. I'm just a couple of pages into it but he puts a lot of the blame on her doing Playboy and Hefner, saying if she never got involved with them she would still be here.

    If she never met Paul Sinder, she might still be here.

    She never would have met Bogdanovich if she hadn't been in Playboy, it was the catalyst for her leaving small town Canada.

    Poor Dorothy died because she was married to a psychotic asshole who saw her as his ticket to the big time and was willing to kill her when she left him.

    Bogdanovich lost all credibility once he started grooming her younger sister to be his wife. Ick.

    That's rich, considering that he first met her at The Playboy Mansion ! What she saw him I don't know. When he married the sister I thought that's creepy, she was 20 and he almost 50 !

    people don't seem to remember Louise was only 12 or 13 at the time & her family wasn't one to go to talk; of course she was older when they married so I don't see what the big deal is all that much. They shared one big tragedy together.



    My original question was this: Is there anywhere I can see Dorothy's Playboy test photos that Paul hired the photographer Ken Honey (RIP) originally to send to Playboy for the 20th Anniversary???

    He also would never have met her. The real shame is that she decided to see him 'one last time' to give him the guilt-cash.

    I have the book and have read it a few times. Peter is just as much to blame for what happened my opinion. He met Dorothy at the playboy mansion and blames everyone but himself. Dorothy had 3 men in her life trying to control her.....Paul, Peter and Hugh Hefner.

    Okay but Dorothy can make her own decisions too. Hey I am a fan, but if she wanted out, did Dorothy not feel like she could say something to anyone? Esp Paul .??

    That's what I think, Tiff. Also, she was going to get tired of Paul's crazy whatever profession she was in and leave him. And he was going to kill her. He was nuts.

    The biggest problem in my opinion was that she tried to be too nice. She was better off to let lawyers do the communication.

    My exboyfriend used to collect Playboy (no idea if he still does as I haven't seen him in years) and he had three Playboys she was in: the 25th, her month and when she was named Playmate of the year. The 25th is interesting because she wasn't chosen but is in the photos as just another girl who auditioned, along with many who never made Playboy except that time. I saw Star 80 and she seemed so brainwashed by Paul. People sometimes blame Hefner but to me he was just doing his job and felt she was good Playmate material. I read somewhere that Hefner hated him and wouldn't let him inside the mansion after awhile.
