The Black Dahlia Serial Killers

The Black Dahlia Serial Killers

By Wondery

Hollywood and Crime is a ground-breaking true crime series about the most infamous murders in Tinseltown history.

 In The Black Dahlia Serial Killers, host Tracy Pattin investigates the sensational unsolved murder of Elizabeth Short. Known as the Black Dahlia, Short was a star-struck young woman whose body was found completely severed at the waist in January 1947. Many remember her tragic story, yet few know that more than a dozen other women died in similar circumstances around that same time.

 In Young Charlie, internationally acclaimed actor Stephen Lang (Avatar, Don’t Breathe) joins Tracy for the story behind the making of mass murderer, Charles Manson. Young Charlie takes us on a unique journey, investigating Manson’s unlikely path from his troubled childhood in rural West Virginia to the night in August 1969 when he sent his followers out to commit the most notorious crime in Hollywood history.

You can also find The Wonderland Murders here, Tracy and writer/director Larry Brand (Halloween Resurrection, The Drifter) journey back to 1981 – when four people were brutally murdered in their home in the Hollywood Hills. The Wonderland Murders is the tale of a violent home invasion robbery and the revenge rampage that followed. It involves a drug-fueled gang of criminals, a crazed crime kingpin -- and the world’s most famous porn star on a downward and deadly spiral.

Missing Persons

In June 1949, more than a year after the Kern murder, another body was found. Louise Springer, a successful young hairdresser, was carjacked in a parking lot on Crenshaw Boulevard, just five blocks from the site at 39th and Norton where Elizabeth Short’s body had been dumped two and a half years earlier. Four days later, Louise’s body was found in the back seat of her car, which had been abandoned on a downtown side street. The manhunt that ensued was the largest in the city since the Black Dahlia investigation. While the search continued, the first of two women went missing. Emily Boomhower, a wealthy widow, disappeared from her Bel Air mansion on August 18, 1949.

The Best Suspect Ever

Eight months passed and then, on Valentine’s Day 1948, there were two attacks. Viola Norton survived an assault by two men who abducted her in Alhambra, an eastern suburb of Los Angeles, and drove her 16 miles to Leimert Park. She was found clinging to life the next morning, a few blocks south of 39th and Norton, where the Black Dahlia’s body was found. That same day, realtor Gladys Kern was stabbed in the back while showing a house in the Hollywood Hills. Her body was found two days later, laid out on the kitchen floor. The case seemed to take a promising turn when police received a confession from the killer’s accomplice. And then, six months later, the LAPD made a dramatic announcement: They had arrested a man they called the “best suspect” so far in the Dahlia case. They claimed Leslie Dillon had information about the case that only the killer could know.New to Hollywood & Crime?

The Silk Stocking Murder

On June 21, 1947, six months after the murder of the Black Dahlia, another shocking homicide stole the Werewolf killer’s spotlight. Top Hollywood mobster Bugsy Siegel was assassinated in a Beverly Hills mansion. In a book written decades later, an author claimed Siegel killed Elizabeth Short -- making Bugsy the most notorious among dozens of suspects in the Dahlia case. And then, 12 days after Siegel’s funeral, the Werewolf grabbed the headlines again after the nude, mutilated body of Rosenda Mondragon, 21, was found rolled up against a gutter near Downtown Los Angeles. She’d been strangled with a silk stocking. On the day of Rosenda’s funeral, a woman’s body was found in a park at the beach near San Diego, 100 miles south of Los Angeles.  Had the Werewolf killer expanded his range? New to Hollywood & Crime?

The Last Stop

Just ten days after Dorothy Montgomery’s body was found, another wife and mother was attacked – this time in Long Beach, a port city about 25 miles south of L.A. Laura Trelstad was last seen leaving a Mother’s Day party to go dancing  at the Pike, a giant seaside amusement park downtown. Her body was found in the pre-dawn hours at the Signal Hill oil field a few miles north of her home. Police tracked Laura’s movements on her final night to a downtown bar and then onto a bus heading home at about ten-thirty. She was last seen getting into a car with a stranger. But then the trail went cold. Meanwhile in Los Angeles, the murder trial in the Dorothy Montgomery case came to a dramatic conclusion when the prime suspect took the stand in his own defense.New to Hollywood & Crime?

Sadist Slayer

The fourth victim in the mutilation murders of 1947 was Dorothy Montgomery – a mother, homemaker and a teetotaling churchwoman -- whose nude body was found sprawled beneath a pepper tree in L.A.’s southeast suburbs.  Unlike the previous victims, Dorothy was not engaged in high risk behavior – she was abducted from her car while waiting to pick up her daughter after a dance. And yet, like the others, she was brutally murdered and horrifically mutilated. Who would so such a thing? Was it the same Werewolf killer suspected of attacking the other women? Or was it the person sheriff’s detectives suspected – a man Dorothy knew very well.New to Hollywood & Crime?

Man Crazy

In late March 1947, while police in Los Angeles hunted a serial killer, FBI agents in Pittsburgh interrogated the latest prime suspect in the Black Dahlia case. An Army sergeant recounted the romantic 24 hours he’d spent with Elizabeth Short in September. He marveled at how she’d been treated like a celebrity in a Hollywood nightclub – and revealed that she was surprisingly unresponsive in bed. After the sergeant’s interview, the LAPD’s murder investigation into the Black Dahlia and the other cases all went cold. There were no new leads in April. Then, on May 2, another woman’s mutilated body was discovered in an empty lot. The horror had returned. New to Hollywood & Crime?

Kiss of Death

After midnight on March 10, 1947, a railroad worker happened upon a woman’s body sprawled near the tracks in Downtown Los Angeles. Assuming she was drunk, he tried to kiss her – and to his horror realized that the woman was dead. Nine hours later, another dead woman turned up on a riverbank 15 miles away. Both had been beaten and strangled. Both had dark hair. The first victim was identified as Evelyn Winters; the second woman as Mae Preston. Theirs made the third and fourth murders of women in the city since Elizabeth Short, the Black Dahlia, was killed. Pressure mounted on the police. The werewolf killer must be stopped.

Dream Killer

A month after the trail went cold in the Black Dahlia case police were retracing the steps of Lipstick Murder victim Jeanne French, hoping they would lead to her killer. What they found instead was another brutal murder. The victim this time was an elderly man. The killer had knocked him unconscious, butchered his body into six pieces and carefully packed the body parts into boxes. Meanwhile, as that case unfolded, Black Dahlia investigators were confronted with a series of promising leads, bloody clues and hasty confessions that all led to dead ends. The city was on the verge of panic – and things were about to get much worse. New to Hollywood & Crime?

The Lipstick Murder

On February 10th a woman’s body was found lying in the weeds in a desolate area called “the Moors.” Her face had been beaten to a pulp, and the killer had slashed her face across the mouth from ear to ear – a gruesome reminder of Elizabeth Short’s murder. Police suspected the same person might have killed both women. This latest victim was Jeanne French, once a celebrity known as the Flying Nurse. Her husband, Frank French, was instantly the prime suspect. Then a corporal at Fort Dix, New Jersey confessed to the Dahlia’s murder, and all bets were off – again. New to Hollywood & Crime?

Then a package arrived at the city post office containing Miss Short’s personal effects and a message made up of words and letters cut out of newspapers. “Here is Dahlia’s belongings.

Red Herring

Police investigators closed in on Suspect #1 in the sadistic murder of Elizabeth Short, the Black Dahlia. The man they sought was Robert “Red” Manley – identified when he used his real name to check into a Pacific Coast Highway motel with Short on January 8th. That was just the first of many mistakes Red made, including lying to his wife. After his arrest, Red was questioned and given two lie detector tests. But was he guilty of more than cheating on Harriette? Police tried to piece together the Black Dahlia’s missing week, January 9th thru the 15th. Was she drugged and held in some secret place – a warehouse, an abandoned building? A torture chamber? New to Hollywood & Crime?

Black Dahlia

Homicide detectives and reporters retraced Elizabeth Short’s steps prior to her body being discovered in Los Angeles on January 15th. Her mother, back in Massachusetts, told investigators that “Betty” had been living in San Diego. She was also traced to Long Beach, where regulars at a drugstore called her the Black Dahlia, because of the way she dressed and wore her hair. The Black Dahlia nickname captured the public’s attention and stuck. Betty was last seen on January 8th leaving San Diego with a man named Red. But where was Red now? And was he the killer?

Jane Doe

January 15, 1947: The body of a young woman was found in a vacant lot south of Hollywood. Mutilated, completely sliced in two at the waist and drained of blood, her face was slashed into the infamous “Glasgow smile.” The head of Los Angeles’ Homicide Squad called her murder one of the most brutal killings in the city’s history. It took a search of FBI fingerprint files to identify her. She was Elizabeth Short, a star-struck twenty-two-year old from Massachusetts. Although not famous in real life, in death she became the most famous cold case of all time. New to Hollywood & Crime?

Vampire Slayer

Two women are found mutilated and murdered in downtown Los Angeles. One woman’s body was lying in the doorway of the closet at the Barclay Hotel. Her leg had been hacked off at the knee; her ankle and foot tossed aside. A few hours later the second woman’s body was discovered at the Joyce Hotel. Her left breast had been severed and she had been sliced open from throat to abdomen. An APB went out for a tall thin man, whom the press would dub the Vampire Slayer – for good reason.

White Gardenia

Early one morning, a young boy and his dog stumbled upon the body of a woman lying on a golf course. Her name was Ora Murray, and she’d been strangled and mutilated – a white gardenia corsage still pinned to her tattered dress. In Los Angeles to visit family, Ora had gone out dancing one night at the Zenda Ballroom with her sister Latona. There they met a good-looking, friendly man, who offered to take the sisters on a tour of Hollywood in his car. Latona went home to her husband. Ora drove away with the man into the night. It was the last time she was seen alive. New to Hollywood & Crime?

Generous Georgette

After young oil heiress Georgette Bauerdorf was found raped and strangled in her Sunset Strip apartment, police turned their attention to the famous Hollywood Canteen, where she volunteered as a junior hostess. A soldier referred to as the Jitterbug Dancer quickly became Suspect #1. But he was just the first of many suspects. Although hostesses were strictly forbidden to socialize with servicemen, it turned out Georgette allowed dozens of men to sleep over and that she'd been generous with both her time and money. Perhaps generous to a fault? New to Hollywood & Crime?

Bathtub Murder

When beautiful young heiress Georgette Bauerdorf was found dead in her luxurious Sunset Strip apartment, police assumed it was just a tragic accident. The housekeepers discovered her body submerged face down in the bathtub with the hot water tap still on. Her father in New York speculated her heart had failed, and she drowned in the bath water. But after a delay of thirty hours, the autopsy report told another story. New to Hollywood & Crime?
