Sunday, November 16, 2008. Twenty years ago today, serial murderer Dorothea Puente was arrested in Los Angeles. I talk about the case of this woman, who killed people in her care for their money, and how she gained enduring hatred, among one community in particular.
I'd like to specially thank my husband, Joe Medina, for his insights into how the case of Dorothea Puente resonated in the Hispanic community and his own family.
The TruTV (formerly CourtTV) Crime Library is an excellent resource for information about many historical (and current) criminal cases. Their entry on Dorothea Puente was quite useful in preparing this show.
