3 Norweigan Serial Baby-Killers: Fru Andresen, Fru Johannsen & Fru Olsen - 1901


FULL TEXT: Christiana, Sweden [sic, should read "Norway"], May 9. – As a result of a judicial inquiry into a baby-farming sensation a charge has been made against three women named Olsen, Johannsen and Andrasen and of having killed twenty-seven children since last summer.

Many of the children were suffocated, while others were starved to death.

The mothers belong to all classes of society.

Some of them appear to have been aware of the fate that awaited their children.
