Pictured above is the mugshot of Elizabeth Short, better known as The Black Dahlia, arrested in 1943 for underage drinking in Santa Barbara. Born in Medford, MA, in 1924, Short spent her time after high school criss-crossing the country, eventually settling in Hollywood with predictably unrequited starlet-type aspirations. This aimless young lady came to national attention on 15 January 1947, after a stroller-pushing mother discovered her torn body in a vacant lot, torso cut in two and drained of its blood, a chunk of flesh taken from her leg and stuffed up her genitals, her hair freshly shampooed and still wet.

This grisly murder generated a fervent manhunt and several false confessions, but turned up little conclusive evidence as to her killer’s identity. Short’s press moniker was derived from the film The Blue Dahlia (1946), about a man who murders his wife, written by Raymond Chandler and directed by George E. Marshall.
