It was a cold morning on 15 January 1947. The wind came from North and the girl and her mother had tied their scarves in front of the face. They were on the way to school when the girl made a discovery that should traumatize them for the rest of their lives.From very far away, it must have looked like a doll, her evil brother in a fit of sibling hatred had prepared. But when the mother went closer, was quickly clear that this girl here had discovered no broken toys. At least not a toy for children. Because who ever this body here had filed in Leimert Park, Los Angeles, California, had previously extensively played around her.
Soon swarmed on the corner of South Norton Avenue and 39th Street cops, reporters and snoopers as me. I knew one of the detectives from the LAPD and so I could make a picture from the crime scene. I had been in the war and I’ve seen a lot in the Philippines, but this moved me breath. I know people tell you why here everyone at the scene had a flask in his hand and why some young uniformed officers a few meters further devotedly barfed in the Meadow was soon clear to me,. The victim was a young girl, beginning of 20 or so, red hair and pretty. At least as far as one could see that still. Her body was been cut accurately apart in the middle and had let him bleed out and washed clean. Someone had made a perverse much effort. Her lips were slashed to a grotesque grin. Burns expressed cigarettes were found on their hacked breasts and the rest of her body was covered with mutilation. On a thigh, a triangular piece missing meat, which the coroner later found in her body again. The missing piece was a rose tattoo. You could see that she long had been tied up on her hands and ankles.
I had while no customer and anyone who took over my expenses in this case, but after the murder not from the newspapers was going to disappear, and the police brought nothing to light except the wildest speculations, I sensed the chance to solve one of the most spectacular murder cases in the country.
And even though “LA’s finest” had a real breakdown: over 200 officials moved into the neighborhood from door to door to anyone, but really anyone who lived away from the scene in three or four cat litters, to consult. Nothing came out except false and confusing clues and the cops began slowly pretty stupid to look at what the press quickly as “LA’s largest Manhunt” negotiated.
I played a few connections and soon I knew that was the victim Elizabeth Short from Hyde Park, Massachusetts. Previously she was stabilized back and forth in their lives mainly between Florida and Massachusetts, until she moved to California with her father at the age of 19 years. He soon threw them out because she wanted to work, but instead prefer constantly long assumed. She was 22 years old at the time of her death and had come to Hollywood to see an old friend again, and the big dream that all little girls dreamed after World War II to live: you wanted to be an actress. Except for a few small supporting roles was nothing from it but and she worked as a waitress and cashier. In the following weeks I read way, again and again, she had been a curb swallow. She was no stranger to the police in San Bernardino, they had seized them because she was drunk and still not age raised, but more wasn’t there. Almost certainly, I can say that she has never worked in the horizontal trade. Their army were all acquaintances as clean, I could not detect even the most important, namely a motif, the “Black Dahlia”, as the Pressefuzzies now called them, to send, over the Rainbow. Also why the killer red dyed her hair after death and not opened up to me. Everything pointed to a classic crime of rape, because of the pathologist’s report revealed that she was been abused before and after her death. It could have been any one who had taken with them as a Hitchhiker, or actually the guy with the they supposedly six days in advance is at the Biltmore Hotel wanted to meet, where she was seen recently alive. More than 50 spinner had shown after the fact itself as a murderer to the police. Most of them were moved after a few days in the hotel for the mentally somewhat less well-off.
Who were you, Elizabeth Short? The more I have they learned, the less I knew they about.First and foremost she have had rumors, something with the Monroe, against money understands himself, and similar crap, which belonged in the tabloids and in the investigations, no tired fart brought me further.
A way remained open, and it was so absurd and over many corners concluded that it had to be almost true. And the fact that the sister of Elizabeth Short with the daughter of a doctor in the area was known. Virginia, Elizabeth’s sister, was married to a Navy guy named Adrian West. This Adrian West was a member of a Presbyterian community, who was also Barbara Lindgren, who was present at the wedding and had signed as a witness to the marriage. A House, just a block from the crime scene was one at the time of the death of Elizabeth Short, her mother. The father of Barbara Lindgren, Dr. Walter Alonzo Bayley, a surgeon, had at the time having an affair with one other doctor and the divorce from his wife filed, Avenue live however remained in the House on the South Norton. In addition, I knew that Elizabeth was broke, as she threw her father out, and rarely more than a few weeks in a boarding house, a cheap motel or acquaintances had lived.
When she actually turned in their distress to the father of the family of her sister, whose Geistes-State in 1946 began to deteriorate with Alzheimer’s disease and a brain shrinkage, it was possible that he took her for a time with him. And who know how that is, then really went his marble works not so properly, is the little ‘ n of Hottie and he wants to like what for have, that she may live with him. But she’s not willing to make her legs that wide. Or the mentally deranged Bayley sees the opportunity in Elizabeth on his estranged wife to exert the pressure which is necessary, so that she are on the House and agrees to the divorce by he slice haeckselte Beth’s body more or less in their front yard sets. But this is all just speculation. Fact is, he had the skills to do a such mess and a few corners there was a personal connection to the victim or his family. The fact is also that I never could prove him and his mental decline ever further step until I learned about a year later that he had died.
I had arrived in a clean cul de sac and the coal ran out slowly but surely. So I closed the file of the “Black Dahlia”, took off me thus, not yet to enter as the greatest detective in the United States in the post-war period in the history, and went on the hunt for husbands who cheated on their wives, or what brought me otherwise as the daily bread. But I can’t leave it over and over again to go through the documents to find out what I missed, what is missed and still the bastard could lead to me has ended the life of the young girl so gruesome manner.
