What does /his/ think about the Black Dahlia murder? Who do you think did it?
Also, can you imagine living in the house with the lawn her body was dumped on?
I've been pretty numb about everything the last few years. I'll knock a mug of hot coffee on my new pants and just sigh and go through the motions.
I think I might actually not collapse mentally if I see a corpse in front of my door.
>her life was cut short
Wait, I have a better one
>her body was cut short
And she was actually short, I guess that one can work too.
Anyway, a whore that got arrested for underaged drinking and drugs got killed in a creative way at the time of american civilization where everyone was obsessed with dark murder mysteries. I am honestly more sad about some video game developers closing down than about her dying in a horrific way. For all I know she could have asked for it, in her junkie inspiration and the spirit of the times.
I first encountered the crime when I read Black Dahlia by Ellroy when I was 15. Was very surprised when I realised it was a real case. Ellroy's murderer was also very bizzarre, so I thought he just made it all up
>Following Short's identification, reporters from the Los Angeles Examiner contacted her mother, Phoebe Short, and told her that her daughter had won a beauty contest.
>Only after prying as much personal information as they could from Mrs. Short, did the reporters tell her that her daughter had actually been murdered.
"A few days prior to the crime, farmer Andreas Gruber told neighbors about discovering footprints in the snow leading from the edge of the forest to the farm, but none leading back"
I'm German and live in this area, I thinking about going there and checking it out some time..
We solved the case boys, turns out it was some senators' son.
In all seriousness though there have been some interesting homicides that have never been solved. The Ripper Killings and The Zodiac spring to mind.

Jesus fucking Christ
IIRC some white hipster hip hop duo used a picture of Yukiko Okada as a cover for their album. Kind of surprised they didn't go full edge and use one of her suicide pictures.
>On April 8, 1986, Okada was found with a slashed wrist in her gas-filled Tokyo apartment, crouching in a closet and crying. Two hours later, Okada jumped to her death from the seven-story Sun Music Agency building. The reason for the suicide is still unknown.
Wait, they found her dying andleft her there? And they didn't even ask her what was going on?
Yes as it would've created a scandal and looked bad. To give you an example from around the same time period, Akina Nakamori was one of the two biggest female pop stars in Japan in the 80s (1b to Seiko Matsuda's 1a). Her boyfriend/fiance had been cheating on her big time and when she found out she became massively depressed and tried to kill herself.
She recovered but had to basically publicly apologize for it (or so I've heard on that) and her career never recovered. She's kind of dismissed as being an alcoholic I believe though I don't know if she actually is.
