‘Lady Killers’: Chicago Author Explores Lives of Female Serial Murderers

Lady Killers: Deadly Women Throughout History takes a look at 14 women who didn’t stop at one murder, or two, or three … Fourteen serial killers throughout history.

Chicago’s own Tori Telfer looks at their origins and motivation, their rationale. Perhaps even more important, she looks at how they were seen. How does society view women who are cold-blooded killers? Differently than men. Let’s start there. We caught up with Telfer with just a few questions in anticipation for her book launch at Women and Children First, Tuesday, Oct. 10 at 7 p.m.

Jacqueline Szczepanik: ‘Ice Cold Killers’ Dumped Brazilian Family In River

Ice Cold Killers is on the case of Brazilian missionary Jacqueline Szczepanik and the man who killed her and her entire family, Jose Carlos Oliveira-Coutinho.

Ice Cold Killers on Investigation Discovery brings you the bloodiest crime tales from the files of police detectives’ most bizarre cold cases. Jacqueline Szczepanik (sometimes spelled Szczepanek) disappeared, along with her husband, Vanderlie “Van” Szczepanik, and their 7-year-old son, Christopher Szczepanik, eight years ago. It took police detectives several months to get any leads in the case, with the final break coming two years after they vanished from their home in Omaha, Nebraska.

On tonight’s Ice Cold Killers’ episode “Winter Nightmare,” the story of the Szczepanik family tragedy will be told by Omaha investigators and possibly Tatiane Klein, the daughter of the missing mom who came from Brazil to search for her family.

Beverly Jackson: ‘Swamp Murders’ — Teen Killers, Dulie Alonzo Green, Victor Pestano, Left Nurse To Drown In Car …

Beverly Jackson was a Miami nurse who was found dead in the trunk of her car over two decades ago. The car had been pushed into the waters of a canal. Her killers, Dulie Alonzo Green and Victor Pestano, who were both in their mid-teens at the time, were charged eight years after the crime. Swamp Murders on Investigation Discovery will recount Beverly Jackson’s incredible story in their episode titled “In Too Deep,” which will follow police as they search for a missing nurse who never arrived for her shift at the local hospital.
