THE STORY OF GOOD MARIA ($60,000 – $80,000)

Maria Swanenburg was born September 9, 1839, in Leiden, Netherlands.

She earned the nickname ‘Good Maria’ because of her eagerness to help friends and family in her poverty-stricken neighbourhood.

What no one knew was, for the better part of 20 years, she is believed to have poisoned at least 65 people, by adding arsenic to their food or drink. Among her first victims – her very own mother and father!

In December 1883, Good Maria was arrested on the suspicion of poisoning the Frankhuizen family. She was eventually found guilty of murder and sentenced to life in jail – where she died in 1915.
