    Junkies don't get reports. You know that. It was obvious and paid for. Second question is did her family know and what was done about it, except Potter's Field, as I already stated.

    Maybe not to the press, but all deaths are reported by medical services automatically as a formality.

    What was "obvious and paid for"???
    Of course a big question mark was what was her real name? Was her identity known to the hotel and or any witnesses?
    Why didn't her rich and famous "friends", eg Betty Mabry, give her a funeral or even, apparently, take any interest in her fate?

    Not so. That is your bias in another country. Obvious ODs are not going to waste the coroners time. You know how many a day there were here and the city was bankrupt in the early 70's. Garbage everywhere, buildings black from soot, hundreds of murders a year, Get a grip on it. You need a little historical perspective, which you do not seem to have.

    What's "not so"? what's soot got to do with anything? what's coroners got to do with it? deaths are normally registered by a doctor. Hundreds of murders, so what, one a day? deaths are recorded even during massive wars, nevermind during a bit of blip in street crime. How would someone falling to their death out a window be decided was a junkie and not registered? I think that's just a strange opinion of yours based on your own illogical "feelings". I've got total historical perspective.

    Because she was a junkie and did not fall to her death. Simple. Well known whore and drug addict who succumbed to her addiction in a Hotel known for drug deaths. What else is there to say?

    Because we do not register junkies in the USA nor give them drugs. I have no illogical feelings. As I said, I am a native New Yorker, 57 years old, and lived close by. The mob ran everything then, including the Police Dept. Where do you get off making these comments from another country where you have zero knowledge?

    Maybe someday you can add something constructive. I doubt you have the means or have ever been here in your life. IRA? I was outside a bombing in Trafalgar Sq years ago and got hurt. For you to even make a comment like that is sick.

    I have plenty knowledge. You record deaths like any other country. Your opinion of who ran what and how much is not a fact. Living outside a subject can give objectivity. But that is to digress. What we need is someone to actually find out her real name and/or attempt to find if the actual cause of her death is still extant in the medical, or statistical records of NY

    You better read the previous post because not only are you wrong, you have problems.

    You were making out the Mafia was some big deal in NY and poor little me lived a sheltered life away from your horrible sooty 1970 NY, I pointed out that at the time the IRA/UDA were causing mayhem in the UK. I lived in London and (razor /knife gang) Glasgow, he Mafia would last about ten minutes over here. I have stayed in NY. For you to make your sick comment on my genuine comment is sick.

    There is something wrong with you. IF you think for one minute that the mob did not run this city you are a moron. Read the papers from the time, see the trials, see the politicians brought down. You lived here? Sure. I lived no sheltered life and I was actually quite hurt in you city from your own insurgents.

If you are so callous that a foreigner can be brought into your stupid religious wars, and injured, you are sick. That would not happen here, the mob would see to it.

    I didn't cause any injury to anyone, you are being sick to attempt to implicate me as a fellow traveller. And now you appear to approve of the Mafia as a guarantor of religious harmony?

    By "we" I hope you don't mean the Mafia? I was merely pointing out to you that the situation in NY was not uniquely bad corruption and violence wise (or soot) at that time and then you went completely overboard (again). Calm down, calm down. By what I've read/heard the most convincing story is that Devon died from an OD in the hotel, but how do we know? Where did the falling/pushed/jumped out an upper story window story come from, why are you so convinced she didn't? What's your source?
    Even if you did scour the NY newspapers looking for a report on her death at the time, not knowing her real name may have been quite a hindrance?
