Mary Ann Cotton lost three husbands, eleven children, her mother, her best friend and her lover. She was left to raise her stepson alone and before long, the 8-year-old boy was dead too. A local shopkeeper raised his suspicions to the police and what they found was the shocking truth about what occurred behind closed doors at 20 Johnson Terrace, West Auckland, County Durham. Was this caring nurse Britain’s first female serial killer?
