Aileen Wuornos was an American prostitute turned serial killer who was responsible for 7 murders in Florida from late 1989 to 1990. Wuornos was placed on death row and is now deceased. Charlize Theron played Aileen in the award-winning movie Monster in 2003.
Richard Mallory's Last Date
Richard Mallory closed his Clearwater, Florida electronics store early on the weekend of December 1st, 1989 for a weekend of rough sex and binge drinking near Daytona Beach. On his way, Mallory's beige Cadillac passed a hitchhiking female with her thumb out on Highway 1. Mallory pulled over and gave her a ride.
The book Monster, written with Aileen's interviews says about this first encounter, "she had a mottled complexion, straggly blonde hair, thin, somewhat cruel lips, a cute nose, great legs and the wet t-shirt accentuated her firm breast. She had a manly way about her and was a tad on the heavily built side, but the more he knocked back the booze, the better she looked."
From Aileen Wuornos' own words regarding Richard Mallory,
"I was cold and wet. Just trying to hitch a ride and this guy goes past, stops and comes back. He was ok at first… he had a bottle of vodka then we stopped for beers at a gas station, he got doritos and stuff. Sure, he just chatted."
‘I thought he was kind of funny. Don’t often take a ride and have a joint pushed your way,’ Lee said to me. ‘To start with, the fucker was kind of cute.’ ‘My rates were easy to understand, even for a drunk,’ ‘Head for $30; $35 straight; $40 for 50/50 [half oral/half vaginal penetration]; $100 an hour.’ - Aileen Wuornos
Richard Mallory agreed to getting head for $30, which was verified by his zipper being unzipped when he was found dead. After Mallory ejaculated, Wuornos claims he refused to pay her. Then he beat her, tied her hands to the steering wheel, and forced a blunt object into her anus.
"We crossed a river towards daytona beach. He pulled off the road, up a track and into woods. We were in the front seats. I stripped and we drank more beer, smoked and kissed for a while. Just stuff. He was limp and he got pissed with me. He hit me. Wanted to fuck me with his limp dick. I gave him a blowjob and then he went fucking crazy. Like a crazy man. Slapped me some and held me down, and fuck you, man, no motherfucker does that to me. He was going to rape me." - Alieen Wuornos
The first bullet Wuornos fired at Mallory traveled through his upper left arm. He began moaning in pain, and Aileen pulled the trigger twice more. She shot Mallory in the side of the neck, lungs, and torso. Blood poured inside his body. The dying man wheezed, which Aileen watched for nearly 10 minutes before he finally died.
Aileen's experience living on the street started when her grandparents tossed her out at age 11, but her troubles began way before.
Born as a leap year child, Feb 29, 1956, the mother pushed Aileen off to her grandparents by her 14-year-old mother Diane Kathleen Pittman-Pratt-Tuley (Wuornos).
Diane had married a 19-year-old drunkard, child molester, and sexual pervert, Leo Dale Pittman, who eventually hanged himself, to no-one's dismay, inside a Michigan penitentiary.
We believe that Aileen's mother dropped her daughter off and then called her parents in tears, saying that she will never return home.
Aileen's grandfather Lauri was known to sexually abuse Aileen, especially while he disciplined her. Also a drunkard, Lauri gassed himself in the family garage.
At his funeral, Aileen blew cigarette smoke into the corpse's face.
Aileen and her brother Keith began having sex with each other at a very early age. This was not only unhealthy, but it also caused major problems to Aileen's chances of social connection with her peer group.
Often mocked at school, kids knew her as 'easy' to please and would trade her body for cigarettes. The boys in her grade always showed up for sex, but refused to be seen with her during the school days.
It's no surprise that Wuornos did poorly in grade school. One teacher had written, "It is vital for this girl's welfare that she seeks counseling immediately."
School of Hard Knockers
At 14, much like her mother, Aileen became pregnant. And while the possibilities of the father spanned many men, they widely believed that this sperm donor was her brother Keith, or her grandfather, Lauri.
Either way, they kicked Aileen from the house and forced to live on the streets.
