Amy Gilligan
Born in 1869, little is known of Amy Gilligan's life before 1901, when she opened a "home" for the elderly in Windsor, Connecticut. Over the next thirteen years, she married five of her elderly patients, insuring each new husband heavily before poisoning them in turn. At least four female patients met similar fates, after changing their wills to make Gilligan their beneficiary. The final victim , Mrs. Amy Hosmer, was dispatched in November 1914, her family calling for an autopsy which revealed traces of poison. Other exhumations followed, with similar result, and Gilligan was promptly arrested. Sentenced to life on conviction of murder, she was later removed to a state asylum, where she died in 1928.
