Mary Ann Cotton
Your personality type matches the criminal profile of Mary Ann Cotton. Her life story reads like something out of a gothic horror novel: a childhood of near-abuse and near-poverty, an early marriage to flee an unkind stepfather, and a long string of family members who had succumbed to the mysterious gastric fever or other curious circumstances while Mary Ann was ominously close by.
Arsenic was her weapon of choice.
Researchers of the case would estimate her victims as numbering anywhere from 15 to the full count of 21 people who died while living with or near Mary Ann: ten of her children by various husbands, three of those husbands, five stepchildren, her mother, Cottons sister Margaret, and her lover Nattrass. Theories of motive range from the collection of insurance money to the desire to rid herself of people that she felt were obstacles or a combination of both.
Because she maintained her innocence to the end, it will never be known for sure how many victims Mary Ann claimed in her endless quest for the money that made her feel secure. Her notoriety continues with her fame as Britain's first female serial killer and in a popular children's rhyme:
Mary Ann Cotton -- She's dead and she's rotten! She lies in her bed With her eyes wide open.
Sing, sing! "Oh, what can I sing? Mary Ann Cotton is tied up with string."
Where, where? "Up in the air -- selling black puddings a penny a pair."
While you may or may not be capable of performing the horrific acts she did, you loosely resemble (with some obvious exceptions) her criminal profile based upon your general motivations, preferences and behavior patterns.
