The body of Elizabeth Short was found in the Leimert Park district of Los Angeles in 1947. Her remains had been left on a vacant lot. Short’s severely mutilated body had been found nude and severed at the waist, completely drained of blood. Her face was slashed from the corners of her mouth toward her ears, called the Glasgow smile. The body had been washed and cleaned and she had been “posed” with her hands over her head and elbows bent at right angles.
The murder is still unsolved.
