At the beginning of the 21st Century monsters still roam the remote, and sometimes not so remote, corners of our planet. It is our job to search for them. The Centre for Fortean Zoology [CFZ] is - we believe - the largest professional, scientific and full-time organisation in the world dedicated to cryptozoology - the study of unknown animals. Since 1992 the CFZ has carried out an unparalleled programme of research and investigation all over the world. Since 2009 we have been running the increasingly popular CFZ Blog Network, and although there has been an American branch of the CFZ for over ten years now, it is only now that it has a dedicated blog.

On This Day in Weird, January 15...

1947: The premier unsolved murder mystery of Los Angeles begins with discovery of the corpse of would-be actress Elizabeth Short—nicknamed "The Black Dahlia"—bisected and otherwise mutilated, lying in a vacant lot. Soon afterward, some of her belongings are mailed to a local newspaper, with a note signed by "The Black Dahlia Avenger." Seventy years later, despite several books naming possible suspects (including one coauthored by Yours Truly), the case remains officially unsolved, but also "open," despite LAPD's admission that most of the files and evidence have been "lost" from police custody.
