Aileen Wuornos: The Selling of a Serial Killer

Nick Broomfield
Aileen Wuornos was thought to be the world's first female serial killer. A hitchhiking prostitute, she killed seven of her clients and landed on death row in the State of Florida facing the electric chair. Primarily focusing on Wuornos, her lawyer Steve Glazer and her born-again Christian mother Eileen Pralee, Nick Broomfield's landmark 1992 documentary also raises a number of questions concerning official corruption?not the least of which is whether Wuornos is a serial killer at all, or if that label was just a commercial means of selling her story.
