American homicide victim dubbed "The Black Dahlia." An aspiring actress she moved to Los Angeles but evidently never made a film or commercial ad. On January 15, 1947 her body was found in a vacant lot in Los Angeles. It had been cut in two at the waist and badly mutilated. Her killer was never found but several people confessed to her killing.
The raven-haired beauty who often wore dark clothes and had a mysterious air about her was christened after her death as the Black Dahlia. In 1987 a book was written about her and at least one movie has been made about her murder.
