article imageIranian serial killer: 'Agatha Christie inspired my killings'

By Chris V. Thangham     May 24, 2009 in Crime
A 32-year-old woman in Iran confessed to killing at least six women. Most of them were middle-aged or elderly, and the killer told Iranian authorities she got murder ideas from the novels of Agatha Christie.
According to the BBC, she is the first female serial killer in Iran.
The woman told authorities she was heavily in debts and robbed money from the murdered women she befriended.
She said she took murder ideas from Agatha Christie’s crime novels.
Authorities said she approached the women at shrines where they were praying, and she offered them a drive home in her car. Once the victim entered the car, she gave them fruit juice tainted with anesthetic. She then strangled the victims and stole their possessions, and then dumped the bodies in secluded areas.
The killer told police she killed her victims over a four-month period in order to pay off her $25,000 in debt.
She will likely face the death penalty.
