12 March 1975 – Olga Hepnarová
Mad at the world and her family Olga Hepnarová took her revenge out on some innocent commuters.
Full of bitter hatred, Hepnarová steamrollered a truck over a crowd of about 25 people who were waiting for a tram in Prague.
The Czech mass murderer took down eight elderly people in her wake.
Ironically she’d written to two newspapers beforehand, but the letters got to their destinations too late, otherwise the tragedy could have been averted.
As her self-confessed intention was to kill as many people as possible, and there was no sign of remorse, Hepnarová was found guilty and sentenced to be hanged.
Her execution took place at Pankrác Prison, making the 23-year-old the last woman to be executed in Czechoslovakia.
