Agatha Christie Inspires Serial Killer

23 May

Now there’s a headline you don’t see everyday. It seems a 32-year-old Iranian woman identified by the single name Mahin may have killed six or more people. Her motive appears to be financial gain in that she would drug the victims, murdered them, and then steal their valuables. The odd twist? During her confession, she stated that she was inspired by Agatha Christie novels and used them to plot her activities. A case of life imitating art. You just can’t make this stuff up.

    Will Agatha Christie be scapegoated for inspiring such violence? Nah … best leave such incriminations to video-games and WB cartoons. 🙂
