The Lizzie Halliday Horrors
Episode 305 kicks off Lady Serial Killers Month with the strange story of Lizzie Halliday, the perpetrator of at least five, maybe six murders, and once you hear about those, you’ll wonder if maybe there weren’t a few more than that. In addition to six murders, the spice in this tale includes a near-lynching and the lunatic antics of the prisoner, the first American woman to receive a death sentence in the electric chair.
Amusement and indignation,
Culled from the historic pages of the Middletown Times, the New York World, and other newspapers of the era.
