September 5, 1947
East Los Angeles
It was midnight when 24-year-old Richard Durant of 340 1/2 N. Kern Street sent wife Mary, 25, out for cigarettes. When she returned, she found him making love to her younger sister, Marjorie. Afraid of what she might do, Mary called the sheriffs. And waited. Waited...
And after a while, she got out an icepick and stabbed Richard just beside the heart. So Richard spent the rest of the night in General Hospital and Mary in custody, while the luckless Marjorie watched the Durants' four kids.
When Richard realized his wife was in stir, he checked himself out against doctors' orders and went to the Sheriff's Station, where he told officers he didn't intend to file charges. And the Tiger Lady wants her man back, so it seems like it's going to be all sunshine back on Kern Street, at least for the moment.
