Elizabeth Short Bio/Wiki, Net Worth, Married 2018

"The Black Dahlia" was a nickname given to Elizabeth Short (July 29, 1924 – c. January 15, 1947), an American woman who was the victim of a gruesome and much-publicized murder. Short acquired the moniker posthumously by newspapers in the habit of nicknaming crimes they found particularly lurid. Short was found mutilated, her body sliced in half at the waist, on January 15, 1947, in Leimert Park, Los Angeles, California. Short's unsolved murder has been the source of widespread speculation, leading to many suspects, along with several books and film adaptations of the story. Short's murder is one of the oldest unsolved murder cases in Los Angeles history.

4This infamous murder has been the subject of intense and sometimes bizarre speculation and theorizing. At least six authors claim to have solved the murder, each offering a different solution. Two separate and unrelated people have published sensationalistic books claiming that their fathers committed the crime. Another author suggested filmmaker Orson Welles as the killer. Author and screenwriter Donald H. Wolf has written yet another book on the case, to be published in 2005, promising to implicate an as-yet-unnamed "Hollywood mogul" in the crime.
5New England monument erected in Medford, Massachusetts on July 29, 1993, by documentary filmmaker Kyle J. Wood on what would have been her 69th birthday.
6In 2003 a retired Los Angeles Police Dept. homicide detective, Steve Hodel, found several pictures of her among papers left by his late father George, a former surgeon. Upon further investigation, he discovered that his father had been a prime suspect in her murder. The police at the time believed that because her body had been so precisely dismembered, only a skilled physician could have done it. George Hodel was not only a surgeon but it turned out that he had been carrying on an affair with her. After police initially questioned him about his relationship he fled the country to the Philippines, abandoning his family, and never returned. Steven Hodel now believes that his father was actually a serial killer who murdered at least a dozen women, including her, and that he fled the country because he was tipped off that he was a suspect in her murder by corrupt police with whom he was running an illegal abortion practice.
