AILEEN WUORNUS: DAMSEL FOR SALE
Aileen Carol Wuornos is probably one of the most notorious women serial killers of our time. Much has been written about Aileen, some of what has been written is true, and some of it is wrong. Much has been written to sensationalize, and to monetize her story. She was described in the media as the first US female serial killer, yet nothing could be further from the truth. There had been decades of women serial killers long before Aileen was conceived.
What makes Aileen stand out from most other women serial killers, if that is what she was, is that Aileen killed with a gun, and her victims were strangers. Aileen, never denied shooting her victims, but claimed it was in self-defense. The majority of women serial killers normally use poison and their victims are usually (but not always) acquaintances or family members.
Welcome to the tragic life of a highly disturbed woman.
