Events of L.A. Noire

After Evelyn was murdered by the Black Dahlia killer, her ring was forcibly removed from her hand. Evelyn's murder was investigated by Detectives Cole Phelps and Rusty Galloway, during which they suspected and arrested James Tiernan and Grosvenor McCaffrey. While being questioned by Phelps, Tiernan described Evelyn as always wearing the ring and clarified a description of it.

Later while tracking down the Black Dahlia Killer, Phelps investigated a lead at the Intolerance Set and found Evelyn's ring sitting on the throne of the set. The discovery of the ring confirmed Phelps' suspicions that neither Tiernan nor McCaffrey were responsible for Evelyn's murder.
