Vera Renczi

Vera Renczi was a Romanian or Hungarian woman known as a serial killer who allegedly poisoned 35 individuals—including her husbands, lovers, and one son—with arsenic during the 1920s. In 1972, the Guinness Book of World Records found no authoritative sources to support the claim that 35 people were killed by Renczi in early 20th-century Romania. Before and after that time, the story has appeared in several versions, with varying details. Most sources place the murders at Berkerekul, Yugoslavia, but no such location can be securely identified. No date of any alleged event in the story can be confirmed, and the story of Vera Renczi may have originated as a fiction or a hoax. ... more on Wikipedia
