Fact of the Day: Lavinia Fisher

America's first female serial killer may have been Lavinia Fisher. She and her husband would gather information and rob men using poisoned tea. Her husband would make sure the victim died with a knife if the tea failed to finish the job. She was caught when a man who hated tea, dumped it away while she wasn't looking and wasn't vulnerable to their scheme. She was hanged before asking the crowd if they had a message they wanted delivered to hell.
