Born July 29, 1924, in Hyde Park, Mass., Beth Short was the daughter of Phoebe and Cleo Short. Although her legal name was Elizabeth Short, many called her Betty, and as she grew up, she preferred to be called Beth.
The officially cause of death was "hemorrhage and shock due to concussion of the brain and lacerations of the face." Although the Los Angeles Police Department will not comment on the specifics of the weapon used to sever Beth's body, it is believed the killer used a butcher knife to eventually saw her in two.
Following are excerpts from the official coroner's report:
There are multiple lacerations to the midforehead, in the right forehead, and at the top of the head in the midline. There are multiple tiny abrasions and lacerations. The trunk is completely severed by an incision, which is almost straight through the abdomen.... There are multiple crisscross lacerations
