Although Vera Renczi was a stunningly beautiful woman, she was also one of the most prolific female serial killers in history, driven by a pathological need for devotion from men. Born in 1903 in Bucharest, Romania into wealth and privilege, by the age of 15 she had engaged in numerous affairs, many of which involved men who were significantly older than she. She became increasingly unmanageable by her parents and ran away from home with numerous boyfriends. Early childhood friends described Renczi as having a pathological desire for constant male companionship and possessing a highly jealous and suspicious nature.
Vera’s first marriage was to a wealthy business man. She was pregnant with her son, Lorenzo, at the time. Spending time alone with her son led to conjuring up scenarios which involved her husband cheating. She put an end to his imagined infidelity by spiking his wine with arsenic. After observing the socially correct period of mourning she remarried. In a matter of months Vera claimed her husband abandoned her. After two failed marriages, Vera made the decision not to remarry. However it did not stop her from taking lovers from all social classes: rich or poor, married or not, it did not matter to Vera. If Vera had even the slightest hint of infidelity the men disappeared days after becoming involved with her. If the missing men were connected to her she would simply say that they had either been unfaithful or had abandoned her.
Vera’s downfall came at the hands of the wife of one of her lovers. The woman became suspicious about her husband. She followed him one evening to Vera’s residence. When her husband failed to return home the woman returned to Vera’s residence, who denied she knew the woman’s husband.
The woman went to the police. During a search of Vera’s house the police entered her wine cellar and stepped into a scene from the macabre. The cellar contained thirty-two zinc lined coffins which held male corpses in various stages of decomposition. Vera was arrested and taken to police headquarters at which time she confessed to killing each of the men. If she suspected that they were being unfaithful or if their attraction to her was waning, the men were quickly dispatched with a dose of arsenic.
Vera confessed to killing her two husbands and her son, Lorenzo. There was no love loss between mother and son. One day while visiting his mother Lorenzo happened upon her secret in the basement and attempted to blackmail her, sealing his fate. Vera Renczi was convicted on thirty-five counts of murder and spent the rest of her life in prison.
