When you think of the most notorious serial killers throughout history, you no doubt think of men, such as Jack the Ripper, Ted Bundy, Jeffrey Daumer, et. al. You would certainly NEVER think of a woman. Well, that’s before you heard this story about Belle Gunness, the most notorious female serial killer in history!
Gunness immigrated to the U.S. in the 1880’s from Norway and would spend the next 40 years killing her husbands, lovers, children, and even adopted children. She did it all for large life insurance policies, the proceeds from which she used to buy real estate. At a staggering six feet tall and well over 200 pounds, even the men she murdered posed no form of physical threat to her insane madness.
The most amazing thing?
She was never caught!
She disappeared without a trace, and to this day, no one knows where she went!
