    Steve's father was also giving illegal abortions to Hollywood stars at the time, which means he was very skilled with the stomach but she was also found cut in half with her spine missing. There were also organs missing.

    0:34 notice how the black dahlias body was found, and then when they actually went to go see the spot for themselves, theres like a indent in the grass that matches perfectly with her body, also the grass seems to be more lighter where she was found...

    The picture on the left is short, but the reason she looks slightly different is simple, she is already dead in that pic, n posed, with the arms above the head eyes closed head to the side. Yup George had a pic of short alright, after he had killed her n before he cut her up.

  • alexpal85
    alexpal85 28 days ago

    Uhm, I just read the wikipedia entry for George Hill Hodel. Not only was he the prime (and definitive) suspect for the Dahlia murder, but his son's investigation has solid evidence that he was the Zodiac killer too! A legitimate encrypted Zodiac letter mailed to a San Francisco newspaper in 1970, was finally deciphered in 2015, and in it the author gave away his true name, written in an obscure ancient Celtic alphabet. The name was HODEL! Jesus Christ!! If this true then Hodel might be the most succesful mass murderer in US history!

    • alexpal85
      alexpal85 26 days ago

      Yeah, the LAPD's reaction is very suspicious indeed! If I could make a guess, it would be that they feared that if they admitted it was Hodel all along, then they would have to admit that Hodel had actually paid off the Homicide department, or even the Attorney too. In the transcription of the wire tapes they had on him, he was very straightforward about bribing the LAPD.
      Hodel was a very influential man in LA. He was specialised in abortions with a rich clientele, in an era when abortion was illegal, and thus he was something like a "cleaner" of secrets. Maybe they were afraid he would disclose all of his secrets, thus smearing the "respectable" society of LA.

    • Seylan Naidoo
      Seylan Naidoo 26 days ago

      I don't understand, if there was such evidence why didn't they convict him? Or at least further investigate?
      Also, maybe you would know, in the video they said something about human remains being found from a soil sample at that guys home, but the police refused to further investigate it cause it was private property. That didn't make any sense, obviously if they found human remains they would try to search the garden area by getting a search warrant or something?

  • Kerttu Vepsäläinen

    In the book "House of Secrets" there is a character called Dahlia Kristoff. She is over 100 years old, and has paranormal powers. Since this is "BuzzFeed Unsolved", I thought she was inspired by this Dahlia. (Why? Because, when I see the word "unsolved", I, for some reason, think that it's connected to something paranormal.)~~~
