To get the creative juices flowing and to make their make game historically accurate, Team Bondi researched every newspaper that was published from January 1 to December 31, 1947.  These true stories inspired many of the cases that will be available to solve in the game.  Now, Team Bondi has released the  LA Noire 1947 Edition Crime Map and you can check out “the original clippings of these stories as they appeared in the L.A. Times that year, and see exactly where they happened in Los Angeles with the 1947 Edition Crime Map at www.latimes.com/lanoire.”

A select few of the articles that were researched include a:

“72-year-old oil man, E.J. Miley, who picked up three hitchhiking youths as he left on a drive from LA up to Fresno. The trio were petty thugs who thought they had an easy mark on their hands…

A pair of weightlifting rivals in Pacific Palisades who agreed to head to the gym to “settle the question of superiority”, but it winds up being far from a fair lift-off…

A horrible account of a young, disturbed returning veteran who, with no warning or apparent cause, murdered his bride and himself at his in-laws house one evening…

Acrobat burglars who broke into a market by ripping off a skylight, chopped a hole in the ceiling, and slid down a pole to make off with $2500 in cash (yes, that was a LOT back then) along with several hundred pounds of meat – but not before stopping to apparently chug several quarts of milk.”

Keep checking back, as more articles will be added to the website during the week.
