Rank #2: 21 | Sadist Slayer

Podcast cover
Read more

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.

Rank #3: 2 | Generous Georgette

Podcast cover

After young oil heiress Georgette Bauerdorf was found raped and strangled in her Sunset Strip apartment, police turned their attention to the famous Hollywood Canteen, where she volunteered as a junior hostess. A soldier referred to as the Jitterbug Dancer quickly became Suspect #1. But he was just the first of many suspects. Although hostesses were strictly forbidden to socialize with servicemen, it turned out Georgette allowed dozens of men to sleep over and that she'd been generous with both her time and money. Perhaps generous to a fault?

In the wrap-up of our Black Dahlia Serial Killers series, host Tracy Pattin interviewed true crime experts Joan Renner, editor of Deranged LA Crimes.com and author of The First with the Latest: Aggie Underwood, the Los Angeles Herald, and the Sordid Crimes of the City, and Jim Clemente, host of Wondery’s Real Crime Profile, as well its Best Case/Worst Case and Locked Up Abroad podcasts. He’s also a writer/producer for Criminal Minds on CBS and creator of Discovery’s Manhunt: Unabomber. Tracy interviewed Joan and Jim earlier, in episodes 13 to 17, about the murders covered in the first season, including that of Elizabeth Short, the Black Dahlia. Now she follows up with them on the murders we covered in the second round – and gets these experts’ take on the big question: Were all these crimes committed by a single killer or were they the work of multiple copycats and lone wolves?

Early one morning, a young boy and his dog stumbled upon the body of a woman lying on a golf course. Her name was Ora Murray, and she’d been strangled and mutilated – a white gardenia corsage still pinned to her tattered dress. In Los Angeles to visit family, Ora had gone out dancing one night at the Zenda Ballroom with her sister Latona. There they met a good-looking, friendly man, who offered to take the sisters on a tour of Hollywood in his car. Latona went home to her husband. Ora drove away with the man into the night. It was the last time she was seen alive.

Rank #6: 22 | The Last Stop

Podcast cover

Just ten days after Dorothy Montgomery’s body was found, another wife and mother was attacked – this time in Long Beach, a port city about 25 miles south of L.A. Laura Trelstad was last seen leaving a Mother’s Day party to go dancing  at the Pike, a giant seaside amusement park downtown. Her body was found in the pre-dawn hours at the Signal Hill oil field a few miles north of her home. Police tracked Laura’s movements on her final night to a downtown bar and then onto a bus heading home at about ten-thirty. She was last seen getting into a car with a stranger. But then the trail went cold. Meanwhile in Los Angeles, the murder trial in the Dorothy Montgomery case came to a dramatic conclusion when the prime suspect took the stand in his own defense.

On the morning of August 9, 1969, the bodies of actress Sharon Tate and four other people were discovered at the sprawling Benedict Canyon home of Miss Tate and her husband, film director Roman Polanski. The victims had all been brutally murdered. The next day, the bodies of Leno and Rosemary LaBianca were discovered at their home in Los Feliz. They had been murdered in a similar, gruesome fashion.

In 1939, young Charlie Manson’s mother Kathleen is arrested in Charleston, West Virginia and jailed for robbery. After her release, she is unable to control her son and has him sent to the Gibault School for Boys in Indiana. Charlie runs away after only ten months. Then, after being arrested for burglary, he is given a second chance when a kindly judge sends him to the famous Boys Town in Omaha, Nebraska. After just four days, he escapes from there as well.

Rank #8: 23 | The Silk Stocking Murder

Podcast cover

On June 21, 1947, six months after the murder of the Black Dahlia, another shocking homicide stole the Werewolf killer’s spotlight. Top Hollywood mobster Bugsy Siegel was assassinated in a Beverly Hills mansion. In a book written decades later, an author claimed Siegel killed Elizabeth Short -- making Bugsy the most notorious among dozens of suspects in the Dahlia case. And then, 12 days after Siegel’s funeral, the Werewolf grabbed the headlines again after the nude, mutilated body of Rosenda Mondragon, 21, was found rolled up against a gutter near Downtown Los Angeles. She’d been strangled with a silk stocking. On the day of Rosenda’s funeral, a woman’s body was found in a park at the beach near San Diego, 100 miles south of Los Angeles.  Had the Werewolf killer expanded his range?

Podcast cover

In late March 1947, while police in Los Angeles hunted a serial killer, FBI agents in Pittsburgh interrogated the latest prime suspect in the Black Dahlia case. An Army sergeant recounted the romantic 24 hours he’d spent with Elizabeth Short in September. He marveled at how she’d been treated like a celebrity in a Hollywood nightclub – and revealed that she was surprisingly unresponsive in bed. After the sergeant’s interview, the LAPD’s murder investigation into the Black Dahlia and the other cases all went cold. There were no new leads in April. Then, on May 2, another woman’s mutilated body was discovered in an empty lot. The horror had returned.

Two women are found mutilated and murdered in downtown Los Angeles. One woman’s body was lying in the doorway of the closet at the Barclay Hotel. Her leg had been hacked off at the knee; her ankle and foot tossed aside. A few hours later the second woman’s body was discovered at the Joyce Hotel. Her left breast had been severed and she had been sliced open from throat to abdomen. An APB went out for a tall thin man, whom the press would dub the Vampire Slayer – for good reason.

Assuming she was drunk, he tried to kiss her – and to his horror realized that the woman was dead. Nine hours later, another dead woman turned up on a riverbank 15 miles away. Both had been beaten and strangled. Both had dark hair. The first victim was identified as Evelyn Winters; the second woman as Mae Preston. Theirs made the third and fourth murders of women in the city since Elizabeth Short, the Black Dahlia, was killed. Pressure mounted on the police. The werewolf killer must be stopped.

Rank #12: 24 | The Best Suspect Ever

Podcast cover

Eight months passed and then, on Valentine’s Day 1948, there were two attacks. Viola Norton survived an assault by two men who abducted her in Alhambra, an eastern suburb of Los Angeles, and drove her 16 miles to Leimert Park. She was found clinging to life the next morning, a few blocks south of 39th and Norton, where the Black Dahlia’s body was found. That same day, realtor Gladys Kern was stabbed in the back while showing a house in the Hollywood Hills. Her body was found two days later, laid out on the kitchen floor. The case seemed to take a promising turn when police received a confession from the killer’s accomplice. And then, six months later, the LAPD made a dramatic announcement: They had arrested a man they called the “best suspect” so far in the Dahlia case. They claimed Leslie Dillon had information about the case that only the killer could know.

A month after the trail went cold in the Black Dahlia case police were retracing the steps of Lipstick Murder victim Jeanne French, hoping they would lead to her killer. What they found instead was another brutal murder. The victim this time was an elderly man. The killer had knocked him unconscious, butchered his body into six pieces and carefully packed the body parts into boxes. Meanwhile, as that case unfolded, Black Dahlia investigators were confronted with a series of promising leads, bloody clues and hasty confessions that all led to dead ends. The city was on the verge of panic – and things were about to get much worse.

January 15, 1947: The body of a young woman was found in a vacant lot south of Hollywood. Mutilated, completely sliced in two at the waist and drained of blood, her face was slashed into the infamous “Glasgow smile.” The head of Los Angeles’ Homicide Squad called her murder one of the most brutal killings in the city’s history. It took a search of FBI fingerprint files to identify her. She was Elizabeth Short, a star-struck twenty-two-year old from Massachusetts. Although not famous in real life, in death she became the most famous cold case of all time.

Rank #15: 28 | Young Charlie: Crazy Charlie

Podcast cover
Read more

By September 1969, police had interviewed over three hundred people and still had no viable suspects in the Tate or LaBianca murders. It didn’t help that the two separate police departments investigating the murders were not sharing information. And no connection had yet been made between those murders and the murder of Gary Hinman in July – or to the auto theft raid at Spahn Ranch near Chatsworth in August.

By 1954, Charlie has spent seven of his nineteen years in six different “institutions.” After being paroled from number six, he meets and marries Rosalie Willis in West Virginia and decides to take his new bride to Los Angeles – in a stolen car.
