THE ‘POISON WIDOW’ ROLE ($75,000 – $80,000)

Rough on Rats (1)

In 1895, Tillie Gburek married John Mitkiewicz. 19 years later, John died from an apparent heart condition. Tillie’s next husband, Joseph Ruskowski also died … as did her next boyfriend.

Tillie’s third husband was Frank Kupczyk. Tillie would greet Frank in the morning, saying “it won’t be long now” … “you’ll be dying soon”.

As Frank’s health began to deteriorate … Tillie began knitting herself a mourning hat … and even purchased a bargain coffin – which she stored in their basement!

Upon Kupczyk’s death, Tillie remarried, for a fourth time. And, as you’re probably thinking, this husband (Frank Klimek) also fell ill.

But this time … doctors suspected arsenic poisoning, and lab tests confirmed it!

As Tillie was being arrested, she turned to the police officer and said …”the next one I want to cook a dinner for, is you”.

The bodies of all of Tillie’s past victims were exhumed … and each was found to contain lethal doses of arsenic. Tillie’s “weapon of choice” had been a rat poison called – Rough On Rats!

Following her arrest, it was discovered that; 20 people had fallen ill after dining at Tillie’s table (14 of whom had died) and Tillie, newly nicknamed, “the Poison Widow” … had life insurance policies on all of her husbands!

PS: After 3 months in the hospital … Joseph Klimek actually survived!

THE ‘BUSY BEE’ ROLE ($45,000 – $55,000)

BusyBee

In 1859 … as British explorer, Alfred Russel Wallace was strolling around Bacan Island (in Indonesia) … when he came across something, extremely extraordinary!

As he described it … it was “a large black wasp-like insect, with immense jaws like a stag-beetle.”
Turns out, it was a never-before-seen … wild species of bee.

What made it so unique … was its sheer size!
The species (naturally named, Wallace’s Giant Bee) is the world’s largest bee  … with females reaching lengths of nearly 4 cm … with wingspans of more than 6 cm!

Long thought extinct, the WGB had not been spotted for more than a century – until American researcher Adam Catton Messer, finally stumbled across another – in 1981!
