Today we're covering a case that’s gone unsolved for 73 years. The tale of a young woman moving to LA for a new start, only to be murdered in such horrendous circumstances that she would become more famous in death than she ever could have in life.

It is, of course, one of LA’s most brutal and infamous unsolved murders, that of 22-year-old Elizabeth Short in January 1947 -- better known as the Black Dahlia.
