A poor working-class widow, Mary Ann Cotton has passed into history as a vicious serial poisoner, mercilessly killing her loved ones for financial gain. She was vilified in the press most likely because of her station in life (as were more modern judicial victims, the early 1900s' Martha Rendell and the 1980s' Lindy Chamberlain of "the dingo ate my baby" infamy). Mary Ann's story, however, upon closer inspection may prove to be completely false; her execution may in fact have been one of history's more shameful miscarriages of justice.

For the night stalkers of the world – the serial killers, the sexual predators – a moonlit night provides just enough illumination to see the prey, but not so much light that the victim can easily identify the assailant. Presuming the victim remains alive, of course.
Religious statues, particularly those of The Blessed Virgin Mary, have been the reported source of miracles over the centuries. Many times these statues weep tears and sometimes blood. Unfortunately, the materials of which they are formed and human chicanery combine to create fraud; none of these miraculous paranormal "cryings" have ever been proven as supernatural.

Medical schools had a need for more and more cadavers for classwork, but demand far outstripped supply. Two enterprising early 19th century laborers, Burke and Hare, figured out that murder was a better way to make money than digging in the dirt.
Two bizarre and concurrent crusades left German and France in 1212, headed for the Holy Land. What made them strange is they comprised only children, who thought their innocence and piety would convert the Muslims holding Jerusalem to Christianity.
