Take a good look at Blanca de Saulles.
Does she look like a murderess? Would you believe she is capable of murder?
The Chilean-born socialite Blanca Elena Errázuriz Vergara married the handsome and wealthy American John de Saulles in Paris in 1911, when the bride was 17, the groom 32. De Saulles was a successful businessman but prior to that had been a college football player (and general player)
On Christmas Day 1913, their son John, Jr. was born. Two years later, Blanca divorced John, Sr. She was 21 years old.
Two years later, Blanca murdered her ex-husband during a custody dispute over John, Jr.
She was later acquitted after a sensational trial, provoking one newspaper to demand: Are women above the law?
One thought on “The Face of a Murderess”
Ya don’t want to test a Latina’s resolve, she was capable but not necessarily guilty!
