How Aileen Wuornos Went From Sex Worker To ‘America’s First Female Serial Killer’

Branded “The Damsel of Death” and the “Highway Hooker,” Aileen Wuornos was accused of killing seven men between 1989 and 1990 while she hitchhiked around Florida. After her arrest in 1991, Wuornos quickly gained notoriety as “America’s first female serial killer.” On March 25 at 6/5c, Oxygen will dive deep into the deadly sex worker’s life during “Snapped Notorious: Aileen Wuornos.”

Before the special airs, get up to speed on what led Wuornos down her murderous path by reading the timeline below:

Infancy

Aileen Carol Wuornos is born on February 29, 1956. Wuornos is abandoned by her mother as an infant, and she and her older brother Keith grow up with their grandparents in Troy, Michigan. Wuornos never meets her father, who commits suicide in prison while serving time for kidnapping and sodomizing a child.

Pre-Teen Years

Wuornos says her grandfather was an abusive alcoholic, and she later admits to

America’s ‘Most Wanted Deadbeat’ Dad Found In Canada After 20 Years On Run

Joseph Stroup was ordered to pay child support after he divorced his wife in 1989. The judge ordered him to pay just $100 a month to his ex-wife, but Stroup claimed he was medically disabled and jobless, according to the Calgary Herald. The judge at the time was accommodating and even lowered his monthly payments to just $14.

Stroup, however, allegedly didn’t make the payments, and by 1998 an indictment was filed against him in federal court, according to the Associated Press. The southwest Michigan man wasn’t broke by that point. In fact, he sold an internet business for over $2 million in 1996. Then, he allegedly fled town.

After being wanted for nearly two decades for failure to pay child support, Stroup was found in Alberta, Canada, under the name Joop Cousteau. Restaurant owner Scott Winograd was handed paperwork by Stroup with the name Joop Cousteau on it after Stroup allegedly claimed that

At Least 2 Malls Across America Shut Down After Brawls, Shots Fired During Black Friday Sales

Report: There Are More Than 2000 Serial Killers At Large In America

A new report from The New Yorker reveals that it’s possible that more than 2,000 serial killers are at large in the United States. Archivist and researcher Thomas Hargrove has been tracking and analyzing data as it pertains to serial killers independently for years now.

Hargrove has been working on the Murder Accountability Project (MAP), a non-profit that collects data on murders and sends it to an algorithm Hargrove created, which he calls his serial killer detector. A serial killing, according to the FBI’s official definition, is the “unlawful killing of two or more victims by the same offender(s), in separate events.”

The F.B.I. believes that less than one percent of murders each year are conducted by serial killers. But, Hargrove thinks that this number is higher.

“How do I know?” he told the New Yorker. “A few years ago, I got some people at the F.B.I. to run the
