Hugh Hefner grieved in green silk.One of his most promising Playboy Playmates, 20-year-old Dorothy Stratten, had been murdered, and Hefner was giving Village Voice writer Teresa Carpenter a glimpse at what he had otherwise kept private. After Stratten was shot in the face by her estranged husband on Aug. 14, 1980, Hefner issued an emotionless news release and went into a media-free seclusion.
"Hugh Hefner, the Murder of Dorothy Stratten and the Dark Side of Playboy" is from the September 29, 2017 National section of The Washington Post. It was written by Theresa Vargas and narrated by Jenny Hoops.
