Jane Handbags


Jane "Jolly Jane" Toppan
1854 - 1938
Committed for life to Taunton Insane Hospital for the murder of 31 people. An angel of death, quoted as saying her ambition was "To have killed more people, than any other man or woman who ever lived".
As a professional nurse, Jane intentionally altered medication and openly poisoned her victims to see how they would react, often crawling in bed with them as they drifted in and out of consciousness.
