the nanny 1965

Nannie Doss (November 4, 1905– June 2, 1965) was responsible for the deaths of eleven people between the 1920s and 1954.

Her first victims were her own children. Her first husband, George Frazer came home one day and saw the kids lying on the kitchen floor, dead. Doss claimed it had been an accidental poisoning but Frazer didn’t believe her. He left and never came back. All the sudden husbands and relatives started dying of “stomach problems”. When her fifth husband, Samuel Doss passed away, the doctor in the case ordered an autopsy. Massive doses of arsenic were discovered in his system. All of the bodies were exhumed and tested. They discovered that Doss’ two infant children, four of her husbands, two of her sisters, her mother, and a nephew had all been killed by arsenic poisoning. She confessed to the murders on May 17, 1955, and was sentenced to life imprisonment. She died of leukemia in 1965.
