that these things tend to be "known" by people who circulate in the same world as the predator. However, there used to be a common saying regarding not speaking ill of the dead, and it used to be adhered to more in the past when people were generally better behaved and more respectful, and so this might have been the case with Bix's fellow musicians, who I think were pretty classy as a group. Especially someone who died so young. But I still don't think Bix was guilty of this crime. And I'd still like to know whether Evans ever brought this up among his wide circle of contacts in Southern California.
