Female serial killers and the crimes they committed.
When you think of serial killers you usually think of men. I compiled a list of seven of some of the worlds most famous female serial killers in their time. These women have committed some of the most heinous crimes imaginable.
Number one on our list is:
Mary Ann Cotton: She was born in an English Village of County Durham, what is now the city of Sounder land. She married at age 20, to William Mowbray in Newcastle. They had nine children; eight of which died of gastric fever. William later died of intestinal disorder. She was later convicted of killing more than 20 people by arsenic poisoning; which included her children. She collected on their insurance money and was later sentenced and hanged on the 24th of March,1873 at Durham County Jail.
Number two on our list is:
Marybeth Tinning: She was convicted for killing nine of her own children by strangulation. One by one should would bring her children into the hospital in an almost dead like state, claiming that they had just stopped breathing. Doctors believed the cause to be genetic until her adoptive son Michael was brought in by her in the same unconscious like state. Since Michael was adopted the theory of the Tinnings family deaths being the result of genetics was soon discarded. Suspicion mounted against Tinnings but there was no evidence. She then confessed to the authorities, which she contracted later. On the 17th of July, 1987, she was sentenced to life in prison. She is currently incarcerated at Bedford Hills Correctional Facility in Bedford New York.
Number three on our list is:
Nannie Doss:She was born in 1905, the 4th of Nov. Also known as”Giggling Granny” she was responsible for the killings of 11 people. between 1920 and 1954. Her victims included her two sisters, her mother and mother in law, her grandson, a nephew and four husbands. She was later sentenced to life and imprisoned in 1955. She died of leukemia in 1965 in Oklahoma State Pen.
