Hi all,

I came across this in AOL news which mentions the story behind The Black Dahlia murder, which remains unsolved:

On January 15, 1947, the remains of Elizabeth Short, were found in a vacant lot in Los Angeles. What made this discovery the stuff of tabloid sensation, however, was the Glasgow smile left on the aspiring actress' face--made with 3-inch slashes on each side. This, coupled with Short's dark hair, fair complexion and reputation for sporting a dahlia in her hair, dubbed her "The Black Dahlia" in headlines.
What followed was a media circus filled with rumors and speculation about the promiscuous 22-year-old's checkered past. What haunts theorists to this day, apart from the victim's uniquely nightmarish visage, is that the case remains unsolved after some 200 suspects were interviewed and ultimately released--making it one of Hollywood's most lurid legends.

I've played the game a few times now - and always enjoyed it.

Also seen the Brian De Palma film twice (made in 2006) AND watched several TV documentaries on the subject.

Certainly was a very gruesome affair shocked

I too have watched various shows on it. It is indeed a sad tale of a hard short life.

My father's stepsister was married to the district attorney investigator for the real Black Dahlia murder case. Strange, but true. wave

I remember the game well.

Ohhh didn't know there was a game. Will have to find it.

Black Dahlia crime was so gruesome. Worst part was the body being 'severed' in two pieces. Yuk!!!!!!

Sorta Blonde,
If you find and play the Black Dahlia game, you will find it to be a wonderful game, but also difficult (if I remember correctly--it was a looong time ago for me.).
I really enjoyed it.

Bets, please check in Glitches. There are many threads on Black Dahlia there.

Game Discussion is for anywhere but Mixed Bags. If we are discussing the real life case as the thread originated it can be discussed here but otherwise it will have to be moved. thanks

I don't know, unfortunately. That could prove to be very interesting. wave
