BOOK LAUNCH: The Little Old Lady Killer: Mexico’s First Female Serial Killer
The surprising true story of Mexico’s hunt, arrest and conviction of its first female serial killer, Juana Barraza Samperio, is told through ten years of research and one of the only interviews that Barraza Samperio has given while in prison. Susana Vargas Cervantes deconstructs this story, focusing on the complex gendered aspects of the case and how Barraza Samperio — with her “manly” features and strength, her career as a masked wrestler in lucha libre and her violent crimes — disrupted traditional narratives about gender, criminality and victimhood in the popular imagination.
