(American Serial Killer)

Birthday: February 29, 1956 (Pisces)

Born In: Rochester, Michigan, United States

Aileen Carol Wuornos was a serial killer who had killed seven men. She is widely believed to be the United States’ first female serial killer. She was convicted for six of the murders and sentenced to death. She was executed by lethal injection at the ‘Florida State Prison’ (FSP) on October 9, 2002. The product of a highly dysfunctional marriage, Aileen was subjected to horrific tortures as a young girl. Her father was a pedophile who was in jail at the time of her birth, while her mother was an immature teenager who abandoned Aileen and her brother. Brought up by her grandparents, Aileen became a victim of rampant childhood sexual abuse at the hands of her grandfather. Exposed to sexual activities at a tender age, she began providing sexual favors in exchange for food, drugs, and cigarettes when she was just 11 years old. She was raped and became pregnant when she was just 14—she claimed that her brother was the father of her child. Thrown out of her grandparents’ home as a teenager, she began eking out a living as a prostitute. She later started robbing and killing men, earning the notoriety of being the first female American serial killer.
