Aileen Wournos’ presence is captivating. Prostitutes are often scared for their lives, but Aileen was a sex seller who was terrifying in her own right. Her anger burned at a level that stripped her feeling for other people completely. Aileen Wournose was born on the fringes of society, abused and rejected. This was not a world built to favor Aileen Wournos, so she became a monster. But, was that an inevitability? Most people who grow up in devastating circumstances don’t become monsters.

In an taped interview hours before her execution, Aileen Wournos, her face snarling with anger, confronted death as a true outsider. During her incarceration and the ensuring media circus that surrounded it, Aileen had been outspoken about her conversion to Christianity, but in the her final hours she lacked remorse for her serial murders. Instead, Aileen clings to a police conspiracy, saying that the cops devised an intricate plan to help her kill more men after her first murder. While she reaches for a conspiracy to displace the blame, she also argues that part of the supposed plot against her was taking advantage of her murderous nature.

“I really got tired of it all. I was angry about the johns.
I robbed them, and I killed them as cold as ice, and I would do it again, and I know I would kill another person because I’ve hated humans for a long time.
I’m one who seriously hates human life and would kill again.”
