"You cover, iris." Serial killers that suit you grandmas
It just so happened that when he heard the phrase “serial killer”, many people imagine such a tall man in a black cloak, a mask and an ax. Less often - a prudent and cold-blooded woman who, without a twinge of conscience, tends her lovers or kills them with a knife for chopping ice during sex, as in “Basic Instinct”.
If you properly strain your imagination, you can imagine yourself in the role of a maniac of a child or teenager, who, because of the poisoned violence and childhood violence, or because of the negligence of parents who did not bother to explain to their offspring what is good and what is evil, the path of violence. But here's something that simply does not fit in the consciousness of a modern person, so this is what a grandmother a la "God's dandelion" can be a bloody psychopathic murderer.
Well, today we will fill this annoying gap in your knowledge of the famous serial killers and tell you about pretty old women who are better not to meet in the dark alley.
Grandmother's pies and devil for breakfast
Like a real kind grandmother from numerous cartoons and children's books, Leonard Cianchully loved to bake her signature pies, but with an unusual filling. But first things first. Even in her youth, this elderly woman was very superstitious, and after life had rather patted her, forcing her to survive many of her children, who every now and then died from various diseases, Leonard finally came to the conclusion that her family had a curse.
And although the Italian herself had already reached her old age, this did not prevent her from concluding in her inflamed consciousness an imaginary contract with Satan - she told him supposedly bloody sacrifices and cakes with human flesh, and he would not pull his clawed paws to her remaining surviving children. No sooner said than done. Three unlucky women, whom a superstitious old woman was able to lure to herself, were, within one year, without any scruples of conscience, put into expense.From the bodies of Leonard decided to get rid of a very extravagant method - the grandmother turned out to be economic, so she cooked homemade soap from the corpses and baked tea cakes with meat for the victims. After being caught, the maniac loved to brag about the police that from the last victim the cakes just came out would be licked.
Baba Yaga from Peter
In regard to serial murders, dismemberments and other "pleasures of life", Russian grandmothers stubbornly keep up with their foreign "colleagues." One of these criminals was Tamara Samsonov from the glorious city on the Neva, which at the time of her arrest was 67 years old. The old woman lived in the most usual high-rise building and would be little different from other pensioners if it were not for the 10 murders behind her and not the fat diary in which the St. Petersburg intellectual described in detail her crimes in three languages. Among the victims of Tamara Mitrofanovna were her tenants, acquaintances, and even her husband, as the police suspect. As a weapon, Samsonov used poison, and then dismembered bodies and performed strange manipulations with them, including removing the lungs and placing them in packets with cut off parts of the page from astrological and occult books.The police and psychiatrists suspect that the grandmother, whom the media have already dubbed the Old Ripper and Baba Yaga, also used the corpses for certain occult rituals, and at times did not disdain to taste the “scarce” person.
The old woman from the house of death
If you look at Dorothea Puente from the side, you would never believe that on the conscience of this most lovely angelic kind of elderly woman are more than a dozen corpses, which she peacefully buried in the garden under apricots. In contrast to the past heroines of our article, Dorothea did not feel the craving for all sorts of devilry, but was guided by pure sheer selfishness. The old woman earned her living by opening her own nursing home, which the media would later christen as the “House of Death”, where she lured victims from the whole neighborhood, selecting alcoholics and homeless people in bars. Despite the presence of convictions behind them, the social workers did not particularly annoy Puente, because she “took under her wing” the most “grave cases”, including alcoholics and drug addicts. However, as the name implies, the inhabitants of the House of Death did not linger for long.
The pragmatic old woman quickly got rid of the guests, continuing to cash social benefits and pensions according to their documents. In other matters, after her arrest and until her death from old age at the age of 82, Dorotea lived a rather busy life, gave interviews on numerous television shows right from prison and even published her own recipe book called Cooking with a Serial Killer.
