Virginia Rappe
From Wikipedia.org

At age sixteen, she worked as an artist's model. This led, in 1916, to her pursuit of a career in silent film with a small role in a production for the Clara Kimball Young Picture Company run by Lewis J. Selznick. The following year she had a small part in "His Wedding Night", a comedy directed by Roscoe 'Fatty' Arbuckle.
In 1920, she began working for the production company run by director/producer Henry Lehrman and the two began a relationship that led to their engagement. Never a major star, Virginia Rappe appeared in only eleven films before her life was cut short at the age of twenty-six.
She was best known in her lifetime as the girl pictured on the sheet music cover of "Let Me Call You Sweetheart," a popular song of the era.
[edit]

Controversial Death

The circumstances of Rappe's death in 1921 became a Hollywood scandal and were published widely by the media of the time. After a party organised by Arbuckle at the San Francis hotel, Rappe was discovered with her clothes torn and acting faint and dellusioned which was later due to a loss of blood. The official cause of her death was listed as peritonitis caused by a ruptured bladder a few days after attending a September 5th party at a hotel in San Francisco, California hosted by Arbuckle
The exact events of that infamous party are still unclear, with witnesses relating numerous versions of what happened. It was alleged that she died as a result of a violent sexual assault by Fatty Arbuckle. Rumor has it that Arbuckle had used a coca-cola bottle on Rappe in an attempt at unnatural penetration. Other rumors circulated that Rappe died of injuries resulting from an earlier botched illegal abortion or complications from gonorrhea.
After three murder trials, Arbuckle was formally acquitted of any charges, although his reputation and career were permanently ruined.
Arbuckle's case has been examined by scholars and historians over the years and is still speculated about today, although a number of detailed books about this case such as David Yallop's The Day the Laughter Stopped: The True Story Of Fatty Arbuckle (1976) and Andy Edmonds' Frame Up! The Untold Story Of Roscoe "Fatty" Arbuckle (1993) have expressed their opinions that Arbuckle was innocent.

Burial

Virginia Rappe was buried in the Hollywood Memorial Park Cemetery.
