POISON WIDOW ($86,250 – $92,000+)

In 1895, Tillie Gburek married John Mitkiewicz. 19 years later, John died from an apparent heart condition. Tillie’s next husband, Joseph Ruskowski also died, as did her next boyfriend. Every morning, Tillie greeted her third husband (Frank Kupczyk) saying “it won’t be long now” … “you’ll be dying soon”. As Frank’s health began to deteriorate, Tillie began knitting herself a ‘mourning hat’ and even purchased a bargain coffin – storing it in their basement! After Frank’s death, Tillie remarried, a fourth time. This husband (Frank Klimek) also fell ill. However this time, doctors suspected arsenic poisoning – which lab tests confirmed! As Tillie was being arrested, she turned to the police officer and said “the next one I want to cook a dinner for, is you”. The bodies of Tillie’s past victims were exhumed, and each was found to contain lethal doses of arsenic. Tillie’s “weapon of choice”? – a rat poison called – Rough on Rats! Following her arrest, it was discovered that; 20 people had fallen ill after dining at Tillie’s table (14 of whom had died) and Tillie, newly nicknamed, “The Poison Widow” had life insurance policies on all her husbands! What does this have to do with Match and Fable’s latest role? Absolutely nothing!
