Most Daily Mirror readers know him as Fibber. His real name is Howard Decker, and here’s a picture of him covering the Spade Cooley trial. He’s the fellow in the background on the right. Howard also covered the 1957 story of an intoxicated Gail Russell driving her convertible through a window of Jan's Restaurant, 8424 Beverly Blvd.
[Note to crime tour buffs: The restaurant is still there and it’s a nice breakfast place.]
