The Papin Sisters.
This case has it all: Sex, lesbian relations, incest, love, hate, abuse, and Gore. Something like this would be shocking even by today's standards, but in 1933, it was incomprehensible. What could cause two sisters to completely snap?
February, 1933. Le Mans, France. Sisters Lea and Christine Papin (aged 21 & 27) had been working for 7 years as live in maids for a middle class mother and daughter, Madame Lancelin and Genevieve.
On this particular night, the women could not be reached, and the police were called to check on the pair. Upon entry, the dark home was silent. But, police knew something was amiss as they soon found an eyeball on the floor. Alarmed now, they carefully headed up the stairs until they came upon a locked door. When They finally forced that door open, They found the last thing They could have expected; the 2 sister maids, nude, in bed together.
To say the sisters had murdered their employees would be an understatement; They were butchered. The mother and daughter's eyes had been gouged out using nothing but the assailant's fingers. Their faces had been viciously beaten to unrecognizable bloody pulps by a hammer, stabbed and sliced with a knife, and beaten with a pewter vase which was kept in the hallway. After the attack, the sisters went to their third floor bedroom, washed each other up, and crawled naked into bed together where they patiently awaited the police. They were not ashamed, and made no attempt to hide themselves.
The sisters were taken away and held for trial, and they each cried and begged daily for their sister.
What possibly could've caused something Like this? A family history of mental illness, suicide, and abuse. Though Lea was never really considered mentally ill, the same could Not be said of Christine. Today, she'd have been diagnosed as paranoid schizophrenic, put on medications to calm her mind, and she would likely have been fine. (Cont below)
