Horrible things all over the world, throughout time, and not always by men. Watched an especially horrible Deadly Women a few weeks back where a step mom in Australia back in the 1800’s was painting her step kids throats with acid until she finally killed three of them.
Earlier today I was reading about a woman named Judith Dufour. During the “Gin Craze” in Britain in 1734, she got her two year-old child out of the workhouse, where he’d been given new clothes. She then strangled him and stripped him naked, leaving the body in a ditch. She sold the clothes for a shilling, which she spent on gin.
