    70 years ago a week from Sunday-R.I.P.
    This my opinion and to the best of my knowledge, that is, if I'm not joking.

    I'm glad someone took a few minutes to remind everyone here of the 70th anniversary of Elizabeth's death, you sir are a class act. Big thank you.

    A few blogs and articles were written to commemorate the passing of poor Elizabeth. Nothing new of course, sadly, but it's good to know a few people took time to pay homage to this beautiful girl. She won't be forgotten, I hope people will continue to write and talk about Elizabeth's story for the next 70 years and more..

    I have read this one extensively and believe from the evidence and situation it was George Hodel, he is the only one who could get away with it because of his skill, position and status he was extremely intelligent as well. I don't think he was the only one involved....

    This.

    I have also done extensive reading and research on this case and I would be surprised if it wasn't him. Lots of circumstantial evidence pointing to him.

    You can pick practically anyone over 10 years old back then in North America and build a case against them.

    I haven't read much about the case but some seem to think a George Hodel was the killer.
    Did he have a motive?

    to keep her quiet I think and I think he also just liked to slice and dice.. I also think he did not like women taking money from him, he had a lot of pressure on him at the time....I think there is a lot to this story

    I don't see any compelling evidence that Dr. Hodel ever set eyes on Short, in fact by the end of 1946, she was a tragic individual, not much above a street person, who was in deteriorating health and that the doctor would not likely have considered associating with.

    I agree. Have never bought the theory, but then I tend to be skeptical of people writing books to call out their fathers at serial killers as in the Zodiac case.

    Profitable, but very suspicious, IMO.

    I just found this eerily similar 1947 murder case today.

    Interesting too that the basement in Hodel's house had a dirt floor.

    The basement had never been finished and since the floor was still dirt, soil samples were taken.

    According to forensic anthropologist Arpad Vass, PhD, a pioneer in chemical analysis of human decomposition, those samples are 'consistent' with Steve Hodel's theory of homicide victims buried in shallow graves 70-80 years ago.

    'The soil came up positive for human remains because there are a number of human specific markers,' said Vass from his laboratory in Oak Ridge, Tennessee.

    "She was found tortured and cut in half, her face horrifically mutilated by the psychotic sadist who left her remains on a sidewalk for a mother and her child to find.

    It was a murder obscene enough to shock even jaded Los Angeles to the core and the spectre of 22-year-old Elizabeth Short still lingers to this day.

    She became known as 'The Black Dahlia,' a title alluding to the mystery of her death, her choice of clothes and her head of distinctive raven hair.

    The killing, unsolved for seven decades, was used as a macabre morality tale for girls like Elizabeth who went to Hollywood in the 1950s to seek their fortune.

    It is this narrative that author Piu Eatwell believed helped Elizabeth's killer walk free after he was ordered to "get rid of' her by a Hollywood businessman with links to both the criminal underworld and the LAPD - who she claims helped to cover up the case.

    Elizabeth was found on January 15, 1947, her body horrifically disfigured after her death."
