Aileen Carol Wuornos

Aileen Carol Wuornos was an American serial killer who killed seven men in Florida between 1989 and 1990, claiming they raped or attempted to rape her while she was working as a prostitute. She was convicted and sentenced to death for six of the murders, and executed via lethal injection on October 9, 2002.

Wuornos' first victim was a convicted rapist whom she claimed she killed in self-defense.

Although not being gay, she became involved with a lesbian who pressured her to continue prostituting.

She declined a last meal and instead was given a cup of coffee. Her final statement before the execution was "Yes, I would just like to say I'm sailing with the rock, and I'll be back"

The 2003 film Monster, starring Charlize Theron and Christina Ricci, tells Wuornos' story from the moment she met Selby Wall (based on Tyria Moore) until her first conviction for murder.
Theron received the 2003 Academy Award for Best Actress for her portrayal.
