When I was reading The Black Dahlia and I got to the portion that described how her face was slashed from ear to ear “fixed in a grotesque and leering death smile” it reminded me of the Joker. Especially because he came up in that video we watched last week and because of they way the Joker is. He is a psychopath with no real reason for everything he does. It is madness for the sake of madness. Which was brought up in The Black Dahlia because we don’t know why Elizabeth Short was killed. It could be because she betrayed someone or there could be no reason for the violence at all and we will never know.
Both the Black Dahlia and My Mother’s Killer reminded me of the torso killings because the killer was never caught for any of them. It really sucks when the killer isn’t found because it means not only will there be no justice but we will also never for sure know the motive behind the murder. At least with My Mother’s Killer and the torso murders there have been guesses towards the murder but with the Black Dahlia there are too many reasons she could have been killed.
