Statistically, men commit far more acts of physical violence than women, and that also applies to serial killers. There are far fewer female serial killers than males, but the number is big enough not to be ignored - and may surprise you.
Today we’re looking at female serial killers, specifically here in Canada. How they differ from men, their motivations, and some stories of well-known Canadian killers.
Our guest, Lee Mellor, is a criminologist and author. We’ll cover the stories of Elizabeth Wettlaufer, Lila Young, Paul Bernardo & Karla Homolka, Stephanie Bird, and Millie Weeks.
