Good characters and script are what engages people. A good collection of characters interacting with each other makes people return to a TV series every time they are in front of the TV or a desktop. Deadly Woman is one such impeccable Investigative Discovery series. We have always seen male murders and their world of horror, but this series focuses on the intention of female murderers and their methods of murder. “While males are often driven by anger, impulse and destruction, women usually have more complex, long-term reasons to kill”, is how ID summarizes the basic theme of the show.
The show first aired on Discovery Channel back in 2005 as a three-part miniseries, its episodes titled Greed, Obsession, and Revenge. After three years, it resumed in 2008 on Investigation Discovery and gained popularity in time. Over more than a decade, the show has seen a total of 12 seasons so far. Here’s everything we know about Deadly Women Season 13.
Deadly Women Cast: Who is in it?
Cast is not permanent in crime documentaries. As the story changes, so does the cast. The only people who have remained constant in this in thrilling crime documentary are Lynnanne Zager (Narrator), Candice Delong (criminal profiler) and Janis Amatuzio (Forensic pathologist).
What is Deadly Women about?
The show is an investigative crime documentary that takes a in depth look into the cold blood killings committed by women. Some kill for a personal grudge, some kill out of thrill. To be precise, crime writers and detectives reveals the inside truth of women murderers who have been involved in some of the deadliest murders that mankind has witnessed.
Season 2 (2008-2009) is when Deadly Women actually got the fame it deserved as it was resurrected by ID. This season came with changes where each episode portrayed three cases instead of the four that were part of the format of its previous season.
Possibly one of the most horrifying episodes of the show aired on December 24, 2008. Melinda Loveless kidnaps a 12-year-old in Madison, Indiana with the help of three of her buddies. The victim named Shanda Renne Sharer was tortured and burned by her kidnappers. This incident brought worldwide attention since this sinful activity was done by minors aged 15 and 17.
In another gruesome episode, the case of Brenda Spencer, a minor of 16 years old was shown This girl open-fired on a schoolyard saying that she didn’t like Mondays. This stupid act of hers killed two and injured nine. Police sentenced her to 25 years in prison and Brenda has never been allowed a parole since then. This case showed the audience that how fickle-minded even girl teenagers can be.
Delving further into the psyche of murderous women, the show also documented the case infamous Bobble sue Dudley, a nurse who killed more than 12 patients with an overdose of insulin. The police found the women guilty of second-degree murder, and she was sentenced to 65 years’ imprisonment. She could not serve her sentence in its entirety as she died behind prison bars before her term was up. This registered nurse was a victim of the Munchausen Syndrome which formed the main reason behind the killings.
In season 5, an episode focused on Darlie Router, a taxed housewife who killed her own children. According to police reports, she was jealous of the attention given to her children. In order to prevent going to jail, she staged a break-in. She brutally stabbed her two sons. She is now on death row.
Then there is the grappling account of Frances Elaine Newton, a cold-hearted woman who killed her two children and husband for insurance money. The woman was executed by the state of Texas in 2005. And even more unbelievable is the case of Susan Diane Eubanks, a woman with the belief that all men are liars and cheaters, who killed her ex-husband and also her four children. Susan was sentenced to death in California.
Deadly Women brings to screen some of the most horrifying, sinful, and malicious crimes of passion committed by women and shares insight into their psyche. Season 13 is expected to bring to light several more of such unbelievable stories of crime.
