There was a deep cut running from her naval to the pubis as well as multiple incision in her hips and thighs. Investigator suggested that the killer had raped Black Dahlia and made the cuts so as to see where his penis reached inside her.

Dr. Joseph Paul De River, the chief police psychiatrists who was employed by the LAPD, seduced killer Leslie Dillon out of hiding after the murder. He allegedly revealed himself to the medical professional, saying he would "give up in Dahlia killing if he got 10 years."

He had details about the killing and the state of the body that no one had revealed to the media, yet despite the evidence, he was never prosecuted. As Piu Eastwell claimed in her tell-all book, detectives never had "headway with their investigation" because of the extreme corruption surrounding the LAPD at the time.
