Other times I'm happy. I feel good. Like a hero."

In 1989, Aileen Wournos cruised Florida's I-95 for strangers and free rides. By 1990, seven of the men who crossed her path met their fate at the end of her .22 caliber pistol. Convicted in six of the murders, she claimed self-defense, then in turn, blamed her ex-husband, her family, her lesbian lover, her defense team, the media, the Gulf War, and bum luck for the cold-blooded slayings.
