Diane Linkletter: A Princess Wrongly Accused by Tom Bleecker

On the morning of October 4, 1969, 20-year-old Diane Linkletter died after she fell from a window of her sixth floor apartment in West Hollywood. Because she was the daughter of famed Hollywood radio and television personality Art Linkletter, the media jumped on the story and, based on preliminary their findings, labeled her death a suicide that was caused by her taking LSD. In subsequent reports, Diane Linkletter was painted as having a serious drug problem dating back to her early teens, as well as being severely despondent. Having never believed that Diane had a serious drug problem or that her death was a suicide, her former boyfriend and fiancé from high school, who today is a noted biographer and investigative journalist, reveals in this book the people and events that finally dispel the notion that Diane ever had a serious drug problem and that her being emotionally despondent led to her taking her own life. (*Note: the content of this book was originally a four-installment magazine article of approximately 18,000 words. As such, this is a small book).
