January 15th, 2013 is the 66th anniversary of the discovery of Elizabeth Short’s corpse in Los Angeles, which was the genesis for the most enduring mystery in LA’s history – the Black Dahlia murder. To mark the anniversary, I’ll be giving a talk titled ‘I Never Knew Her in Life: Cultural Depictions of the Black Dahlia Case‘ at St Bartholomew’s Pathology Museum. I’m delighted that Carla Connolly has invited me to speak in such a beautiful, Grade II listed building, and I’m thrilled to be sharing a stage with Professor Peter Vanezis OBE who will be giving a talk titled ‘The Investigation of Dismembered Remains’.

Do come along if you have the chance. You can book tickets for the event here.

      Thanks Steve,

      I’ll speak to Carla about filming the talk. Hope you’re enjoying the holidays and best wishes for the new year.
