She was Hollywood starlet Elizabeth Short murdered in 1947.
She was named The Black Dahlia after her death, from the current movie of the time The Blue Dahlia.
Who was the real black dahlia and why did they call her that?
I think she is a girl who got raped before she was murdered..

Reply:This was a extremely beautiful woman that was viciously murdered. They never found her killer, but there were many leads
and the detectives did not give up. They thought that they may have questioned the real killer but had no evidence. There was
a old black and white movie or documentary on this story and I
though Lucille Balls daughter played the part of the Black Dahlia
in a tv movie . They say that this woman died a horrific death.
I think I read that this lady was born with a deformity where she
could not have full sex and of course in those days they did not
have the surgeries that they have today that would have given her
a normal sex life.I read about her years ago, I do not know what
year this all happened .What a sad thing to happen to this lady.
Reply:Got to the yahoo opening page, check under featured : They've got an interesting video segment on her death, which will answer your questions.
Reply:The unable to have sex thing is completley wrong. It's one of the many rumours surrounding her death, that were completley flase, invented to make it more interesting.
