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 "deposited" (the term used many times) her body parts 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.
Her body was found near "Degnan
" on South Norton in between 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...not that I am the first to consider this.
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!
