It was brought up in another thread by Wier about some of the similarities between letters, murders, etc. I thought we might start a new topic dedicated to some of these similarities.The Lipstick Killer
....dismembered little Suzanne Degnan
and places pieces of her body all over town. This was said about her killer": "either a man who worked in a profession that required the study of anatomy or one with a background in dissection...not even the average doctor could be as skillful, it had to be a meat cutter." Brodie concurred adding that it was a "very clean job with absolutely no signs of hacking."Black Dahlia:
...cut in half. The same thing was said about her killer. "Must have been a doctor, etc".
Her body was found near "Degnan
" on South Norton inbetween Coliseum and W 39th: Cheri Jo Bates - The Confession Letter:
... "but I shall cut off her female parts and deposit them for the whole city to see
(A Degnan/Lipstick Killer refererce?)
.."I am stalking YOUR girls now". (emphasis mine) The Lipstick Killer...all girls.
If anything, I'd say there is a good chance the Lipstick Killer was also the killer of the Black Dahlia.
Suzanne Degnan was discovered to be missing Jan. of 1946. Elizabeth Short was found January 15, 1947. I sure hope they looked for suspects who may have moved to Southern California.
