I tell the story of Amelia Dyer in this episode.


Amelia Dyer is suspected of murdering more than 400 infants between 1880-1896; however, only six deaths were attributed to her.


She received the death penalty after pleading guilty to the murder of Doris Marmon and was hanged in June 1896.


Amelia practised baby farming, a standard method of earning a living in late-Victorian Era Britain.
