Here's What You Have to Know About Dorothy Stratten's Death


"Just a small time girl who had it made, or so the story goes, she had it there then slipped away, oh, how was she to know," sang Canadian singer-songwriter Bryan Adams in "The Best Was Yet to Come." 

Like many others ⁠— including the 90s anthem "Californication" by Red Hot Chilli Peppers, as well as "Cover Girl" by Prism — the song was inspired by the murder of Playmate Dorothy Stratten. 

Almost forty years have passed since the gruesome tragedy. So really, who killed Dorothy Stratten?
