Description

Aileen Wuornos was executed in Florida October 9th 2002 at the age of 46; she was the 10th woman to be sentenced to death in the USA since the death penalty resumed in 1976. Convicted for the murder of six men, in a two month period, Aileen claimed she acted in self defence however the investigation into these claims was poor and she later retracted her statement.

All-too-often female prostitutes have been the victims of male serial killers – the killings of Aileen ëLee’ Wuornos were the inverse of this. She was a child prostitute, fleeing an abusive childhood at the hands of her grandparents, which led straight into a disastrous adulthood of difficult affairs with both men and women. Her metamorphosis from victim to attacker had brutal consequences: a stream of dead men. Following a renewed interest in this woman after the film ëMonster’ this is her story in her own words
