I've read almost everything about Janis, but never seen an answer to this question: Was her heroin dealer arrested and prosecuted for murder? Evidently his "tester" was out of town and he sold the stuff anyway; killing right people this weekend.

With this information, the police would easily have found him through phone records and witnesses. So was he arrested and made top pay? Thanks.

Wouldn't they need a receipt to prove that he sold her the heroin? In other words, there's no proof of him selling to her.

Well, they knew his name was George, he drove a Cadillac Eldorado and Janis had called him for delivery. According to her sister, George delivered the heroin and said it was "primo stuff." The cops should have hauled him in, questioned him and arrested him for the eight deaths he caused because of his untested stuff.

People around Janis knew who he was and he should have been prosecuted. Does anyone know if the police followed up, arrested him and made him pay? Another intersting fact is Janis' lover, Peggy. Three years after Joplin's death, someone went to her house and stabbed the woman who answered the door, thinking it was Peggy. Evidently she had told the cops about George and he didn't like it. I'd love to know how the cops handled all of this and if George went to prison.

Again, what you've laid out is all speculation and hearsay. Where's the hard evidence? With drug dealers, they can just be arrested later for possession with intent to distribute unless caught in the act.

Since everyone knew who he was and what he did, didn't the police bring him in for questioning? With eight people dead, you'd think the cops would press this guy for answers.
