Summary
In 1994, after two elderly women were found brutally murdered, it didn't take long for the police to catch the killer. Acting on a tip, they followed a woman who appeared to be doing some routine shopping. When they saw all of the shopping bags in the trunk of the Cadillac, they knew they had found the killer on one of her post murder shopping sprees. After arresting Dana, they inspected her house & found collections of stolen credit cards, a thousand-dollar mountain bike, unopened bottles of Opium perfume, racks & racks of clothes-one officer commented that is looked like Bullocks' department store. Dana Sue Gray is unique as one of the few documented female serial killers-her targets were strangers, her attacks were brutal ...& her fashion sense couldn't be beat. Impeccably dressed, meticulously neat, Dana Sue Gray spared no expense on herself. Dropping thousands of dollars on a shopping binge or a luxurious day spa were nothing out of the ordinary for Dana-nor for many wealthy women. But Dana wasn't wealthy-she was an unemployed, alcoholic nurse. She was also a serial murderess, who preyed upon elderly women, violently killed them, then used their credit cards to embark on wild, post-murder spending sprees. "I was so consumed..." Women serial killers are rare-there are only 36 documented cases-and those, like Dana Sue Gray, who murder so brutally that veteran police officers are shaken by the bloodiness of the crime scene, are even rarer. Now in an exposeacute; as shocking and fascinating as its subject matter, author Kathy Braidhill explores the stunning story of Dana Sue Gray, one of the most dangerous, deadly, and disturbed women in history. "I wanted her to die." Presents the shocking account of Dana Sue Gray, an unemployed alcoholic nurse and serial killer, who preyed on elderly women, brutally killing them and using their credit cards on wild, post-crime spending and shopping sprees
