Marianne Konopkova, Polish Serial Killer of Babies - 1906


FULL TEXT: Vienna, July 14. – Marianne Konopkova, a woman living at Wieliczka, near Cracow, has been arrested on suspicion of having murdered over thirty babies.

She kept a baby farm, and had a large number of children placed under her charge by parents who were, in most cases, glad to relieved of them for a payment.

Some of the parents of children kept in the establishment now state that on recent occasions, when they called to see their children, they were shown babies which they are sure were not their own.
