Unsolved Homicides of Women in Los Angeles During the 1940s Webinar Tickets on sale now

On January 15, 1947, Betty Bersinger, a Leimert Park housewife, found the body of a young woman in the weeds of a vacant lot on S. Norton Avenue.

The woman was nude, bisected and obscenely posed. Within a few days the victim was identified as twenty-two-year-old Elizabeth Short. We know her now as the Black Dahlia. Hers is the most notorious unsolved homicide in the city’s history.

The case has garnered so much attention over the decades that other female victims of the era have been overlooked. Women who, like Short, never got the justice they deserved.

What was going on in Los Angeles in the 1940s? Who was here–and why was it such a dangerous place for women?

Join me for an in-depth examination of seven other victims whose cases remain unsolved. They have been forgotten for too long.

Don’t worry, if you can’t make it for the live presentation the webinar will be available for one week afterwards.
