Thelma Todd was a star from the 1930’s who ran a cafe at this address before her mysterious death. Coroners ruled it as accidental carbon monoxide poisoning, but some people believe that she was murdered. She has been seen walking up and down the staircase and some people smelling exhaust fumes in the spot where she was found.
