Mary Flora Bell was an 11-year-old British child who killed two young boys in 1968 before finally being imprisoned for her entire adolescence. The public was shocked and found it incredible that a young child could be such a monster. On the other hand, was Bell actually a victim herself? Or was she just a manipulative and cold-hearted child who was coincidentally saddled with a call girl mother, an unknown father, and an extremely tumultuous childhood? Perhaps she was reenacting the maltreatment she experienced in her early life.
Regardless, Mary Bell has since been released from prison and has spent the last several decades shrouded behind a veil of mystery; her identity has been kept secret for all these years. She has not re-offended since her childhood and some say that she is very repentant. The world may never know if she is truly sorry for what she has done - or just sorry enough to keep the limelight off her adult life.
