Crime Library: Criminal Minds and Methods

Nannie Doss: Lonely Hearts Lady Loved Her Man to Death

Recipe for Death



The following biography of serial poisoner Nannie Doss has been compiled using information from various sources, chief among them a member of Nannie's family, Sherby Green, who opened up her research materials to The Crime Library. Much of Nannie's life, however, remains shrouded in mystery and in between Ms. Green's papers and other sources there exists a few blank spots where events can be only conjectured by those who write about Nannie. In those very few instances, I created an assumption based on research available.

Most of the following story, however, is unembroidered.
