Summary

Alaina brings us part one of Dorothea Puente, possibly one of the most evil humans who has ever walked the earth. Dorothea had an incredibly sad childhood, but then grew into this terrible woman who lied, cheated and scammed her way through just about everything. You will be shocked to hear how many times she got away with actual law breaking offenses, Ash actually lost count halfway through the episode. And guys, this is only part one!!

Some fascinating books used:
The Bone Garden by William P. Wood
Buried Beneath The Boarding House by Ryan Green
Corpse Collector by Genova Ortiz
