The Thing Nightmares are Made of 

When people of serial killers what comes to mind are guys like Ted Bundy, Jeffery Dahmer, Dennis Radar (BTK), John Wayne Gacy or Gary Ridgeway (The Green River Killer). The Latter one was from my state and was in prison for some time in my hometown. 

What you may not know is that there are female killers you do not hear much about. Though they kill in different manners and usually for different reasons, about 10% of these kinds of killers are women.

So since it is the season and month of Halloween I thought to add a few of these creepy evil spooky women for October 31st.

If you wish to learn more I will leave a link at the bottom of the post since I will give a short synopsis of the facts.

Left to right first row then 2nd row:

  • Genene Jones: Another nurse who may have killed up to 90 children and infants but only one was confirmed. She injected them so they would get sick and got praise for saving them. Something went wrong and she ended up killing at least one.
