199: Canadian Black Widow: Melissa Ann Shepard

Episode 199: In all the recent photos I could find of Melissa Ann Shepard, she looks like an ordinary, little old lady. But Melissa, Millie to some, has a criminal record a mile long, including convictions for fraud, impersonation and forgery. But, she is best known for, luring men via the internet, drugging them and taking control of all aspects of their lives. Melissa also caused the death of one of her husbands in Nova Scotia, was suspected in another’s death and at least two more men came close to dying.
