Thelma died of carbon monodixed poisoning...or so it seemed. She was pretty friendly with the mob when they were ruling Las Vegas, Chicago, New York, and LA, trying to get their hand into show business when alcohol and gambling and mysterious deaths/disappearances wasn't enough for them. One popular mobster, Lucky, wanted to open a casino in her cafe (she already had two kinds of restaurants in her building, including an empty room that Lucky wanted to use and it had a few apartments, one of them was her home). Thelma objected to it, saying "over my dead body" and he was heard saying "that could be arranged" (Dude, you are a mobster, you should've been smart by not saying that in public, especially when there's people around!). Well Lucky's involvement in Thelma's death was never proven-- it was just one of the many theories surrounded her death. It's really hard to pinpoint what exactly happen to Thelma- she was cremated, so anything that's available now with the technology that could really help is no good. You can't prove anything with ashes, unfortuately but you know something...maybe they can recover a bone? Not all bones get grinded up. Not to be disgusting and to make you lose your lunch, but I recall someone telling me that after he had his wife cremated he saw a few rib bones and other bones that didn't get grinded up...so it's very possible that there's a bone in Thelma's ashes that could be used for testing; even a tooth may work as it's have it's own blood vessel pump inside. I could be wrong but at least I'm thinking! Well, anyway, I think her death case is closed.
