#91 Susan Cabot

Susan Cabot’s life reads like a B movie. Born into a Russian-Jewish family, she was soon shuttled off to no less than 14 foster homes. As an adult, she had a child with her second husband, but there were rumors that the boy was not his (and that the real father was King Hussein of Jordan!). The boy, who suffered from dwarfism and psychological problems, would later beat his mother to death with a weightlifting bar. Tragically, I am not making any of this up.
