  1. I am William Richard Enright, son of Caroline Maude Hallenbeck Enright. My grandmother was Caroline Maude Brennen Hollenbeck. We spent quite a lot of time with Aunt Ada and my grandmother who lived in Monrovia. They shared many interesting stories about William Desmond and his brother. Some of these stories did shed new light on what the LAPD missed in their investigation of the murder. If you wish to contact me, please email me at sleelq500@gmail.com. Thanks for the good information. Rick Enright
