Rosa Bronzo, Italian Serial Child-Killer - 1879


FULL TEXT: Rosa Bronzo was lately arrested in a village near Salerno, Italy. For two years past she has been taking infants, for a consideration of 30 francs each, from their parents or guardians, offering either to care for them for a certain period, or to take them to the Children’s Hospital at Salerno. It was lately discovered that she poisoned the children with laudanum. Several of their bodies have been discovered.
