6. Elizabeth Short
She’s also been called The Black Dahlia. She was found in 1947, her body dumped in a Los Angeles parking lot, sliced in half. No suspects were ever found, and the case has never been solved. But this story has spurred numerous books and movies, all revolving around the event. There are many explanations as to what may have happened to her, but we may never know the truth.
5. Roscoe “Fatty” Arbuckle
You may have never heard of him, but he was one of the most famous actors of the early 1900s. He played in silent films with the likes of Charlie Chaplin and Harold Lloyd. He signed a contract with Paramount in 1921 for $1 million and threw a party in San Francisco to celebrate. The only problem, an actress named Virginia Rappe died at the party. Arbuckle was accused of raping and murdering the girl, although was never convicted by the court. But by that time, his public image was already tarnished. His movies were banned and we could no longer find work. He died of a heart attack in 1932 after finally signing a contract with Warner Bros.
