Who's Stealing Los Angelenos Water Supply?
I believe that the water department is drying up the land so it can be bought at a reduced price and that Mulwray was murdered when he discovered this plan.
Either you bring the water to L.A. or you bring L.A. to the water. People have been asking if I'm the type of respectable business owner LA should utilzie. 'Course I'm respectable. I'm old. Politicians, ugly buildings, and whores all get respectable if they last long enough.
Despite my husband Hollis's affair, he was a very good man and would never illegally reroute water for his own profit over the great citizens of Los Angeles in which he cared so much for. Yes, he was a business partner of Noah Cross my notorious father. But he was his own man and one not susceptible to corruption.
