On November 30, 1989, in a lonely place off Florida's Interstate
95, 51-year-old Richard Mallory shuddered under the impact
of four .22-caliber slugs being pumped into him by a naked,
hard-faced blonde hooker. While he suffered a slow, agonizing
death, she stripped him of his valuables and drove his Cadillac
back to the motel where her lesbian lover was waiting. In 1990,
her killing spree kicked into high gear, with three men slain in
as many weeks. Of the six of her seven male victims whose
bodies were found, some were nude; all had been shot dead
In January, 1991, pawnshop records led to the arrest of Aileen
Carol Wuornos, 34, aka "Lee," an abusive, alcoholic man
hater with a murderous hairtrigger temper. Wuornos began
prostituting herself at age 12 for cigarettes and beer. At 15 she
bore an illegitimate child, at 16 she took to the highways as a
hitchhiking hooker. In 1986, with a lengthy rap sheet and
prison term under her belt, she entered into a relationship with
Tyria Moore, 24. Tired of turning $20 tricks, Wuornos decided
to rob her customers of everything they had -including their lives.
Her arrest and trial prompted a worldwide media frenzy.
Ultimately Wuornos received six separate death sentences.
Here is the definitive account of a killer who confounded the
profiling experts, forever changing their concepts of the crimes
of which a woman is capable.
