Yet again, Les Miserables is getting another movie. I actually have high hopes for this one, so they better not F it up. Check out the latest trailer.
Did you get chills. I did.
It is a controversial theory to say that a woman is the murderer, but these were crimes of jealously, envy and passion and all very female-oriented. The most stunning thing is there is no evidence that the killer was a man.Wow. I am very anxious to read this book. And to re-write my woman serial killer script. It may be the time in which Women Serial Killers reign supreme, at least in TV and movie ;) I best jump on a ship before it passes.
[When police found burned clothing in one of the victim's] it was always considered that they were hers, but it seems to be they were the killer’s clothes and she burned them and then took Mary's clothes to escape. One of the anomalies of the case is that a witness saw a woman in Mary's clothes afterwards and thought that it was her and investigators could never explain that.
Royal gynecologist Sir John Williams is believed to have been having an affair with the last victim (Mary) and it was alleged that he killed her. My father had a gift for seeing the obvious and he realized that it was William's wife, Lizzie, that had the motive. We decided to open an investigation to look into it and everything kept pointing back to Lizzie.
[Many wonder whether a woman could physically be capable of such crimes, but] between 1888 and Feb 2012 there have been 30 Ripper-type attacks – women who had their throats slit, stomachs cut open and wombs cut out – 29 have been caught and they were all women. This type of attack is a woman-only crime. It’s maternal instincts gone amok, according to psychologists, and in fact, the Ripper coroner, Wynne Baxter, said the uterus was the organ the murderer was determined to possess.
It is a shoe that doesn’t really fit. Lizzie Williams is the only one who ticks all the boxes.
