From Wikipedia, the free Encyclopedia

Roland West (20 February 1885 – 31 March 1952) was a Hollywood director known for his innovative film noir movies of the 1920s.

West has long been considered a murder suspect in many conspiracy theories due to the unusual circumstances surrounding the death of his mistress, actress Thelma Todd. Some conspiracy buffs have suggested that West murdered Todd aboard his yacht, the Joyita, then planted her body in her garage to be found later (she was found dead there, suspected victim of accidental carbon monoxide poisoning). No evidence concerning these allegations has ever surfaced and neither West nor anybody else was ever charged with any crime surrounding Todd’s death. Such tales remain little more than rumor and innuendo.
