The Black Dahlia Serial Killers

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.
