Most famous female criminals in US history [infographic]

Men may rule the account of the most notorious crimes in the US, but that doesn’t mean women din’t contribute their fair share in crime. Everybody’s heard of Bonnie Parker, of Bonnie and Clyde, who went on a two-year rampage with her lover across the States during the Great Depression, in a revolutionary tale of fatal attraction and violence that would forever resonate in the public consciousness. Then there’s Griselda Blanco, also know as the queen of cocaine, the black widow, La Madrina or by 20 of her other aliases. By the time she was 40, she was moving 300 kilos of cocaine a month, and had developed a reputation for ruthless brutality even among Colombia’s most hardened criminals. Urban legend has it she left a body count upwards of 250 people in her wake, including at least three of her ex-husbands. JailExchange just published this interesting infographic that illustrates these stories and more others.
