Moving onward - "M". We're half way through! And it's time to talk about those murdering mothers. God forbid they should exist but sadly they do...
I would argue that mothers have the greatest duty of care owed their child. A child comes into this world and/or their household knowing that she is his/her mother and the matriarch of the family who will make them safe. That's the ultimate duty of care and when a mom misuses her position and murders her young, she does not deserve the title anymore.
So let's get down to it... Here are a few of the most notorious mother murderers I have heard about.
Megan Huntsman - admitted to strangling and suffocating 6 of her newborns from 1996 - 2006. I repeat, she killed 6 of her newborn children! Acting on a tip from an estranged husband, the police searched her house in 2014 and found 7 (!) dead newborns. The 6 she had suffocated and strangled were in cardboard boxes. And there was a newborn who had apparently died as a stillbirth.
