Leontina Tydrych, Polish Child Care Provider & Serial Killer - 1927


FULL TEXT: The professional foster-mother who has been arrested at Bialystok (Poland) on a charge of having murdered 60 babies is Leontina Tydrych. She charged a fee of 30/, and mothers seeking to see their children were informed that they were being reared in the woman's country home.

The persistence of one mother revealed that the home did not exist, and there was no trace of the children. It is alleged Tydrych murdered them immediately they were received and afterwards cremated them.
