On this day in history, January 9, 1947, Elizabeth Short was last seen alive.
Ms. Short's gruesomely murdered body was discovered days later -- on January 15. Now known forever as the Black Dahlia, her unsolved murder has been the subject of dozens of theories and books, as well as some notable movies.
A terrible way to gain notoriety.
I wonder why her story fascinates us so. Many people have been murdered in similar ways but she sticks with us.ReplyDelete
