In the 1980’s, a Victorian boarding house in Sacramento, California was known as a place of healing for those who were weak, downtrodden or fighting off the demons of addiction. The well-regarded woman who ran the home had earned respect in political circles for her charity work. Scattered about the house were photos of her with the likes of California Gov. Jerry Brown, who once danced with her at a fundraising ball. But this grandmotherly woman was so much more. She was a killer. Murdering her elderly and mentally disabled tenants, she would cash not only their social security checks, but the checks of everyone who lived in her house. When she was caught, there were seven bodies in her backyard. One by the river, and another that's ruled a suicide. This Dorothea Puente. The Death House Landlady.
