Chicago “psychic” Tillie Klimek had an ability to predict the death of her husbands. Mostly because she was the one who put rat poison in her husbands’ food. She might have also killed some of her neighbors and friends with food or candy she had prepared. Klimek was found guilty and died in jail in 1936.

In the late 1890s, Amelia Dyer had been collecting babies to “care” for them for money. But instead, she would starve them or give them liquid opiates.

When police found out about the fact that many children died in her hands, they thought it was because of neglect and sentenced her to six months of hard labor, but she didn’t stop. She kept strangling the infants and dumping them in the river.

When some of the bodies were discovered and traced back to Dyer, she confessed and was sentenced to death by hanging in 1896.

Lizzie Borden is probably one of the most famous female killers in America. Allegedly, she has bludgeoned her father and stepmother to death with a hatchet. Everybody knew she didn’t like her stepmother and she immediately fell under suspicion. She also burned the dress she wore the day of the murders and provided inconsistent testimonies. Lizzie’s jury found her not guilty but the crime was never solved.

Leonarda had several miscarriages and a fortune-teller told her that her children were at risk, so she decided to sacrifice other people in order to save them. Over the course of 1939-1940, she killed three women and disposed of the bodies. Also, according to her court testimony, she turned one of the women’s remains into soap. She was sentenced to 30 years in prison and three years in a criminal asylum.

“Death Row Granny” is a nickname Velma received because she killed at least four people in North Carolina by adding arsenic to their food or drink. Her own mother and two husbands were among her victims.

At her trial in 1978, she claimed, “the devil made me do it” and that she had never intended to kill her relatives. But she was found guilty and executed in 1984.
