7. Black Dahlia
One of the most infamous unsolved murders is the murder of Elizabeth Short, labeled “The Black Dahlia”. On January 15, 1947, her body was discovered, nude and sliced in half. Her body was drained entirely of blood and rinsed clean.
Her face was cut from ear to ear. Her body appeared to be posed. In the mud near her body was a single heel print and tire tracks. After several days, her apparent killer mailed some of Short’s belongings to a reporter from the Los Angeles Examiner.
Her murder was never solved. Dozens of people have confessed to the murder, but none proved to be viable.
