Arrest of Francis 'Two Gun' Crowley

It has long been rumored in Hollywood that the original Moe from the Three Stooges was stabbed to death in the early 1930s. But on the heals of the William Desmond Taylor murder, the Paul Bern suicide (or was it murder?) & Fatty Arbuckle trial tinsel town just couldn't afford another scandal so covered up the whole ghastly affair. I think somebody was trying to say something with this pulp however.
An anagram for for Moosehide is Moe he di so. Now that along with the picture the author is obviously telling us, "Moe, he died like so." The answers are out there people, we just have to look for them. If not for us, let's do it for Moe.
