“Deadly Women fuses bone-chilling story-telling, sumptuous period drama and forensic fact in a bid to explore history’s most alluring female killers. Each episode profiles four famous cases from the past; killers and their victims are brought to life by elaborate dramatized reconstructions.”
One of the most popular series on Investigation Discovery, Deadly Women, begins its 8th season on August 1, 2014 with two brand new episodes.
The 100th episode special examines the infamous female axe murderer, Lizzie Borden, and features host, Candice DeLong, a former FBI agent and profiler, Dr. Janis Amatuzio, a forensic pathologist, and true crime authors Diane Fanning and M. William Phelps.
“Along with the gruesome nature of the crimes is the unexpected character of the accused, not a hatchet-wielding maniac, but a church-going, Sunday-school-teaching, respectable, spinster-daughter, charged with parricide, the murder of parents, a crime worthy of Classical Greek tragedy.” Crime Library
