It's our first serial killer, peeps and creeps! This week, Kristin tells Mogab the story of Belle "Triflers Need Not Apply" Gunness, the most prolific female serial killer In American history.
Belle was a true success story - she was able to overcome the struggles of being a woman immigrating to the US on her own in the late 1800’s. She managed to make a very comfortable life for herself by employing such tactics as arson, insurance fraud, and lots of good ol’ fashioned murder. And many people, including me, think she got away with all of it.
