On August 4, 1892, at the age of 32, Lizzie Borden, an unmarried English woman, brutally murdered her father and stepmother. The murders were famously named as The Fall River Murders, because they occurred in Fall River, Massachusetts in the United States. The trial of the murders gained much popularity with media’s involvement. The incident has achieved much hype in the American pop culture and criminology. Even though the only suspect to be held on trial was Lizzie Borden, yet in the American folklore she remains one of the most famous criminals. Moreover, till this date, no one knows for sure the real identity of the killer or killers.

In both instances, she tried to do so by injecting arsenic. What really caused Audrey Marie Hilley to kill her near ones still remains an unsolved mystery. Most conspiracy theorists believe that it was for money, however, she did not gain much from her menacing endeavors. Audrey Marie Hilley was imprisoned for her sadistic and cruel crimes. On February 1987, the prison where she was incarcerated never got to see her again. Four days after her escape, she was found meandering outside in the marshes and soon died of hypothermia.

As time went by, Agrippina persuaded to adopt her son Nero from a previous marriage and make him the next Emperor of Rome. She guarded her own position at the Roman court by having all those women that Claudius praised, murdered.

    You left out at least two that I can think of: 1. Queen Athaliah of the Kingdom of Judah. When her husband fell in battle against General Jehu of the Kingdom of Israel, Athaliah (daughter of Ahab and Jezebel) murdered every possible heir to the throne of Judah that she could reach. But she couldn't reach the infant King Joash, because his aunt had spirited him out of the palace to the house of the then-current High Priest, Jehoiada. Seven years later, Jehoiada got all the senior commanders together and crowned Joash in the Temple. Athaliah burst in, tore her royal robes, and cried out, "Treason! Treason!" Jehoiada snapped his fingers, pointed at her, and pointed to the door--and the soldiers dragged Athaliah out and executed her. 2. Lucrezia Borgia. Enough said, with a name like that. She became the woman whose name *means* poisoning. And by the way: I would take Aileen Wuornos off the list. I don't think she got a proper defense. The defense should have been that those seven men were no great loss. In other words, go for jury nullification!

    Just because a woman muders someone does not mean they are evil. If that murder was a spontaneous act of passion then they are not neccesarily evil. However

    @manyponies:You're right, that photo is of Katherine Knight (an equally nasty woman who also deserves to be on this list). #8 has a modern photo too. The author really needs to get these things right, you can't just put any old pic in.

    sure sure, the most evil woman which is not there to my surprise! is Indira Gandhi, she blew up and destroyed the Golden temple- the most important place in sikhism, she had plans to wipe out sikhism, with an atomic bomb. She killed millions, and organised to torture many in punjab, by stuffing chillis in the limbs and by raping innocents infront of their family, and by chopping hands and feet of.

    looks like they got the numbering system wrong- number 6 and down are a bit of a step up on the evil spectrum. conspiering to kill someone doesnt seem like enough to land a spot on the top 10 evil.
