Description : In this fascinating book, Peter Vronsky exposes and investigates the phenomenon of women who kill—and the political, economic, social and sexual implications buried with each victim. How many of us are even remotely prepared to imagine our mothers, daughters, sisters or grandmothers as fiendish killers? For centuries we have been conditioned to think of serial murderers and psychopathic predators as men—with women registering low on our paranoia radar. Perhaps that’s why so many trusting husbands, lovers, family friends, and children have fallen prey to “the female monster.” From history’s earliest recorded cases of homicidal females to Irma Grese, the Nazi Beast of Belsen, from Britain’s notorious child-slayer Myra Hindley to ‘Honeymoon Killer’ Martha Beck to the sensational cult of Aileen Wournos—the first female serial killer-as-celebrity—to cult killers, homicidal missionaries, and our pop-culture fascination with the sexy femme fatale, Vronsky not only challenges our ordinary standards of good and evil but also defies our basic accepted perceptions of gender role and identity.

Description : This psychological crime thriller takes us inside the mind of a unique female serial killer, a prostitute who murdered seven adult men-a case with which the author was intimately involved. The issues raised by this high-profile criminal case remain unresolved to this day. Women, even prostitutes, have the right to self-defense in theory, but in practice, the story is more complicated. This book will challenge everything you ever thought about prostitutes, serial killers, and justice in America. Aileen Wuornos is a damaged soul, a genuine American outlaw, a symbol of women's rage, a symbol of what can happen to severely abused children, and of how our justice system fails women. Chesler's involvement with a serial killer has haunted her ever since. She speaks in Aileen Wuornos' voice, as well as in her own, and delivers an incisive, original, and dramatic portrait of a cognitively impaired, traumatized, and alcoholic woman who had endured so much pain in her short life. When she'd had enough, the results were deadly. This is a poignant, sometimes humorous, never-before-told behind-the-scenes tale. Wuornos' story is handled with great sensitivity, but also with realistic detachment by Chesler as she probes the telling moment, the telling phrase. Was Wuornos suffering from post-traumatic stress after a life lived on a "killing field?" Was she also "born evil?" So many prostitutes have been torture-murdered by serial killers-how did Wuornos, once prey, become a predator? Requiem for a Female Serial Killer will also haunt you. It won't let you put it down. Take a walk on the wild side. The ghost of Aileen Wuornos beckons.

Description : To date, approaches to understanding serial murder have focused on individual cases rather than the social context in which they occurred. Written by leading criminologists and world experts on serial murder, this book marks a departure by situating nineteenth century serial killer Mary Ann Cotton within the broader social structure. Using archival records of her court appearances, local histories and newspaper articles, it uniquely explores how institutions such as the family, economy and religion shaped the environment she inhabited and her social integration through the roles of wife, mother, worker and criminal. Acknowledging that it takes a particular type of individual to commit serial murder, the book shows that it also takes a particular type of society to enable that murderer to go unseen. As the first work to analyse serial murder through the theoretical framework of institutional criminology and institutional anomie theory, it will equip criminologists with a methodological toolkit for performing institutional analysis.

Description : America has a long and complicated fascination with serial killers. When we think about the most infamous of these killers, we generally think of men like Ted Bundy, Jeffrey Dahmer, or John Wayne Gacy. Those names make headlines while there's the often-repeated myth that suggests there are no female serial killers. After all, most of us couldn't name a woman on the same scale of infamy at BTK or the elusive Zodiac Killer, can we? As it so often is, the truth is far more complicated. Women kill. While they are less sensationalized than their male counterparts, they are no less deadly. At time of publication, current research shows that one in six serial killers are female, bringing their number to fifteen percent of confirmed serial killers. This reference book includes background information on the killers, their victims, methods, and - where relevant - their arrests, trials, and convictions.

Description : Four turn-of-the-century fiends whose “crimes, even by today’s standards, are still shocking—because they were committed by women” (Yorkshire Magazine). Their names may not be as familiar as such notorious female serial killers as Aileen Wuornos, Myra Hindley, Martha Beck, or Belle Gunness. But more than a century ago they made headlines and enthralled a bloodthirsty public. Now, venturing into the darkest side of human behavior, journalist Stephen Jakobi unearths the life and crimes of four of history’s most twisted women: Agnes Norman, a London servant girl whose victims of choice were children, including three infants. Most startling is that Agnes was a child herself—only fifteen-years-old. Louie Calvert, a prostitute condemned for only one murder. But her unique death cell autobiography revealed much more to her story. Kate Webster committed one of the sickest slayings of the Victorian era. Was she also responsible for the Thames Torso Murders which rivaled Jack the Ripper? Finally, the mysterious Mrs. Willis, an English “baby farmer” whose services included foster care, wet-nursing, and infanticide. Using original research based on family-owned primary sources and government files only recently made available, In the Mind of a Female Serial Killer delves into to the grisly psyche of these infamous murderesses.

Description : A True Crime anthology headlined by the serial killing atrocities committed by Dana Sue Gray. Most female serial killers use poison or a gun to dispose of their victims. Dana Sue Gray was one of the few who was a "hands on" killer, strangling numerous elderly women in the Southern California area in the early 1990s. But what led her to go on this murderous rampage that one police detective described as "the most brutal crimes I've ever seen"? Dana was a compulsive "shopping addict" who would steal her victims credit cards and speed off to the nearest shopping mall to indulge in her habit. A lifelong thrill-seeker and horror movie fan, Dana would succumb to her base impulses and become arguably the most violent female serial killer in modern times.

Description : In an era that produced some of the most vicious female sociopaths in American history, Jane Toppan would become the most notorious of them all. AN ANGEL OF MERCY In 1891, Jane Toppan, a proper New England matron, embarked on a profession as a private-duty nurse. Selfless and good-natured, she beguiled Boston's most prominent families. They had no idea what they were welcoming into their homes.... A DEVIL IN DISGUISE No one knew of Jane's past: of her mother's tragic death, of her brutal upbringing in an adoptive home, of her father's insanity, or of her own suicide attempts. No one could have guessed that during her tenure at a Massachusetts hospital the amiable "Jolly Jane" was morbidly obsessed with autopsies, or that she conducted her own after-hours experiments on patients, deriving sexual satisfaction in their slow, agonizing deaths from poison. Self-schooled in the art of murder, Jane Toppan was just beginning her career -- and she would indulge in her true calling victim by victim to become the most prolific domestic fiend of the nineteenth century.

The victims were five children aged between 10 and 17-Pauline Reade, John Kilbride, Keith Bennett, Lesley Ann Downey and Edward Evans-at least four of whom were sexually assaulted. The murders are so named because two of their victims were discovered in graves dug on Saddleworth Moor and a third grave was discovered in 1987, over 20 years after Brady and Hindley's trial in 1966. The body of a fourth victim, Keith Bennett, is also suspected to be buried there. Despite repeated searches of the...

Description : In Fatal Females, investigative psychologist and former police profiler Micki Pistorius examines the minds and motives of women who kill. Throughout history the view seems to have prevailed that it is not in women's nature to commit violent crime, but Pistorius shows that this is not in fact the case. Women, givers of life, are indeed capable of ruthlessly taking life. She examines more than fifty documented cases of South African female killers, categorised according to the nature of the crime - for example, infanticide, spree killings, stalkers, poisoners - and she presents her new hypothesis to explain the psychology of that rare individual, the female serial killer.

Description : This research includes a review of published research on female serial killers and a case study of one female serial killer. Prior studies show that male and female serial killers tend to differ in their motivations of killing, their killing method of choice, their knowledge and choice of victims, and their crime aftermath. A case of one female serial killer will be analyzed to illustrate particular limitations to the current understanding, based on prior research of gender differences in serial killing. The participant of the case study does not fit the gender profile found in prior research, suggesting that gender may not be the sole or primary determinant of these crime features. This case study aims to deepen the understanding of whether and how gender operates in serial killing.

Description : THIS BOOK INCORPORATES 4 SMALL BOOKS I HAVE WRITTEN ABOUT WOMEN SERIAL KILLERS. IT INCLUDES: WSK OF THE 17th CENTURY WOMEN MURDERERS OF THE 18th CENTURY WSK OF THE 19th CENTURY WSK OF THE 20th CENTURY Our society can barely account for evil in males, let alone imagine it in females. The female nests, creates, and nurtures doesn't she or is it that we just want to believe in the intrinsic non-threatening nature of women? Yet, history is full of instrumentally violent women: women who have fought wars and battles throughout the world, with no less ferociousness than men. A grave misconception is that female serial killers are rare creatures, that they are not very common, a myth perpetuated by both the press and popular media. Women Serial Killers are not a phenomenon unique to the late twentieth century, nor are they exclusive to America. The case histories of the killers mentioned in these books clearly demonstrate that women serial killers have been active in many countries and for many centuries

Description : Does the news media help perpetuate gendered images of womanhood and motherhood when reporting cases of female serial murder? I perform a content analysis of American newspapers across time to analyze the extent to which female serial killers are depicted in such a way that reinforces normative expectations associated with being a woman, as well as with being a mother. I analyze newspaper articles from 1900 to 2013 depicting cases of female serial murder consistent with the FBI's definition of serial murder. Descriptions of female killers' victimization history and mental health/substance abuse issues function as a means to deprive them of social agency and thus reinforce their subordinate position in society. Overall, newspapers frame female serial murder in such a way that reflects American patriarchal values and norms, according to which for females, and especially for mothers, it is not socially acceptable to step outside the boundaries of gender roles and expectations. The results indicate that female serial killers are depicted along gendered frames that enable the audience to re-interpret women's deviance in a socially acceptable way that does not threaten normative gender roles and expectations.
