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.

French brought her to the home that she shared with her mother Elvera at Camino Padera in Pacific Beach¨ (Katz 184).

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.”).
