Another Good Story Ruined – The Black Dahlia
|It is deceptively difficult to write with any degree of accuracy about the Black Dahlia case. Here’s a recent example of a mangled account by Scott McCabe of the Washington Examiner:
On this day, Jan. 9, 1947, Elizabeth Short, anaspiring actress, disappeared, triggering a criminal investigation in which she was dubbed the "Black Dahlia."
A week later, her body was discovered cut in half and mutilated in a Los Angeles parking lot.
