Vera Renczi was born in 1903 to an aristocratic Romanian family. When she was a young woman, her friends and family thought her spoiled rich-girl attitude caused her relationship troubles. Her problem, however, had much deeper roots and more serious consequences. Unlike most female serial killers who kill for financial gain, Vera killed because she believed men could not be trusted. She was obsessed by the need for total loyalty and devotion from her lovers. Before she was caught, she poisoned 2 husbands, one son, and as many as 35 lovers. When the authorities searched her home they found 32 corpses in her wine cellar each stored in their own personalized coffin.
