At the time of her death there were more than sixty confessions, but not one could supply accurate details of her mutilations. After missing for nearly six days, her body had been discovered at Leimert Park, lots of people think that she was positioned in some type of a sexual manner, which leads them to think that she was killed because she rejected someone (Smith 8). Weather Short 's death was a crime of passion or embarrassment, no one but her and the murderer knows exactly what happened those last six days of her life. The most suspected person in Beth 's murder is George Hodel, an ex detectives father. After Steve Hodel 's, the ex detective, findings of a picture with a woman that looked similar to short, he became
For over 71 years now, her murder has been a mystery and her death hasn’t failed to bring speculation, as to who did what, among the people who come across her tragic life story. Such speculations can be categorized into two theories: George Knowlton murdered Short, or Dr. George Hill Hodel did. BACKGROUND In December 1946, Dorothy French, who worked at San Diego’s Aztec Theater, spotted Short and found herself feeling sorry for the beautiful and mysterious woman, for she noticed, ¨she had been there for hours on that day in early December 1946, and she appeared to have nowhere else to go. French brought her to the home that she shared with her mother Elvera at Camino Padera in Pacific Beach¨ (Katz 184). Over the course of her stay, the Frenches noticed that Short kept to herself and didn’t say much about her past, but she did mention that she was engaged to a Major Matt Gordon who died in a plane crash days after WWII ended.
Think I don’t like to talk to somebody ever’ once in a while. Think I like to stick in that house alla time?” (Steinbeck 77). Curley’s wife expresses her need of speaking to others; she is tired of staying in the house all the time and having no one to talk to but Curley, whom she openly despises The way the men describe her, as a whore, only adds to her loneliness and depression. It brings her to the point in which she angrily cries out at Lennie,
I saw you. It wasn’t fair!” (Jackson, 224) It is apparent that she is not necessarily distressed over the practice of the ritual, but specifically that she is the victim, as she states they should start over, so that a new victim will be chosen. “I think we ought to start over,” Mrs. Hutchinson said, as quietly as she could.” (Jackson, 223) This differs greatly from Jane, who begins to sympathize with the plight of all domestic women through her experience with the woman behind the yellow wallpaper. Although she initially frowned upon the woman’s efforts to escape, the more her mental health deteriorated, the more she began to relate her plight to that of the trapped woman, both prisoners desperate for escape. With her newfound revelation, she sought to save the trapped woman from her prison, subconsciously freeing herself in the process.
We can see the narrator’s weakness throughout the story. It is especially apparent in her narration where she uses phrases like, ‘John says’ which “heads a litany of "benevolent" prescriptions that keep the narrator infantilized, immobilized, and bored literally out of her mind” (Lasner 418). The significance of positions in society greatly influences the woman in this story. She withholds challenging anything her husband says, regardless of how miserable she feels rendering her weak. He makes her stay in a room that she does not like, refuses to let her visit relations, and prevents her from doing the thing she loves the most, which is writing.
The Black Dahlia murder has some questionable evidence concerning the victim’s whereabouts/the crime scene, the suspects that were ruled as innocent, and the most prominent suspects, Leslie Dillon and George Hodel. The Black Dahlia was only 22 years old when she was murdered. She was found by a mother walking with her child on the morning of January 15th, 1947 (“The Black Dahlia Murder - Read All about it in FBI Records.”). She was most likely not killed on the date she was found, but rather between the dates of January 9th and January 15th (“The Black Dahlia.”). The woman who found her initially thought she was a discarded mannequin because of how she was unclothed and posed, but as she got closer, she found she was wrongly mistaken (“The Black Dahlia Murder - Read All about it in FBI Records.”; “Black Dahlia Biography.”).
“A Jury of Her Peers” is a short story written in 1917 by Susan Glaspell based on the true story of the 1900 murder of John Hossack. The story is centered around Martha Hale’s hasty departure from her farmhouse in Dickinson County, Iowa. Martha Hale hates to leave her work undone and her kitchen in disarray, but she has been called upon to accompany a group of her neighbors who wait outside. The group stopped to pick up her husband, Lewis Hale, but the sheriff, Henry Peters, asked that Martha Hale come along as well to accompany his wife, Mrs. Peters, who, he joked, was getting scared and wanted another woman for company. During this era women were the slaves of the house meaning they were always working in the home and providing for the family.
Mrs. Ramsay, as well, wants to be woven to the memory of others (Woolf, 92). As a mother, a wife, and a hostess, she tries to protect, support, and harmonize people she interacts with. This similarity leads them to the feeling of imperfection. Even with his contribution to his study, Mr. Ramsay sees himself as insignificant. He suffers from insecurity, and this weakens him mentally, which even makes Mrs. Ramsay to think that her husband would have wrote better books if he had not married (58).
The initial setting of the play immediately identifies Martha as a housewife who, as pertaining to the time period of the plot, satisfies the stereotype of women in the early part of the twentieth century. Primitively, readers rightfully assume Martha Hale is another conventional female of her time: property and inferior. Martha rushes unpreparedly out of “her kitchen, [which] was in no shape for leaving,” to meet her impatient husband. While complying with the submission of the era as she rushes to her husband and her worry as to the state of her kitchen, Martha Hale is defies the expectancy of a simple-minded and
John Proctor and Abigail talk privately about their former relationship. Prior to the opening of the play, Abigail worked as a servant in the Proctor home. Elizabeth Proctor was ill at the time and Abigail took on more responsibility within the Proctor household. When Elizabeth discovered the affair, she dismissed Abigail. During their discussion, Abigail becomes angry with Proctor because he refuses to acknowledge any feelings for her.
