Hollywood is far from all the glitz and glamour that we regularly see on the big screen. In fact, it’s downright tragic at times, as you’ll read about in the following unsolved murder mysteries. Just be warned, these stories are NOT for the faint of heart.

The Black Dahlia

Elizabeth Short was a 22-year-old woman who had moved to Los Angeles from Florida to pursue an acting career. Interestingly, she had no known acting credits or jobs during her time there, and unfortunately she would never get the chance to expand her resume as she was found dead on the morning of January 15, 1947. Her body had been mutilated in a horrific manner and dumped in a vacant lot. The press nicknamed Short the “Black Dahlia” as the case became widely publicized across the nation. Yet, investigators were stumped; they interrogated practically every man who had come into contact with Short but found no solid evidence as to who could have committed such a heinous act. Then, the killer began mailing the contents of Short’s purse to local newspapers, but authorities still failed to track the culprit down. The case remains one of Hollywood’s oldest unsolved murder mysteries.
