Abstract:
Los Angeles, 1947. The mutilated body of Elizabeth Short, an aspiring starlet from Massachusetts is found; her killer never would be. As the "Black Dahlia" she became a warning for "loose" women in postwar America, and her death has maintained an almost mythic place in American lore. Eatwell gained access to newly-released evidence and has persuasively identified the culprit, using clues to the case that have never surfaced in public.
