Belle Gunness, the original Lonely Hearts Killer was famous for taking out newspaper ads looking for a companion to help on her farm. After seducing them - she was said to have 'purred like a kitten' in bed - she would steal their life savings and dispose of them quickly.

She repeated this process upwards of 30 times! Learn about the life and crimes of a woman whose viciousness was often compared to H.H. Holmes and remember, "triflers need not apply."
