Women In Crime Ink on Deadly Women

by Women in Crime Ink

The second season of "Deadly Women" on Investigation Discovery covers four centuries and seven countries, revisiting female killers and their crimes. Each episode features Candice DeLong, a former FBI agent and profiler, Dr. Janis Amatuzio, a forensic pathologist, and multiple female murderers.

In tonight's episode, "Blood for Money," Women in Crime Ink's Diane Fanning talks about Celeste Beard, the case Kathryn Casey wrote about in SHE WANTED IT ALL . Celeste had it made when she left her waitress job to marry Steve Beard, a multi-millionaire. But she threw it all away when she convinced her lesbian lover that Steve had to die.

This season, Diane and Kathryn will appear in additional episodes of Deadly Women. Watch for them. And tonight, make sure you don't miss Diane on "Blood for Money," at 9 pm eastern, on Investigation Discovery's Deadly Women.

You know what I have never why women like Celeste, who come from virtually nothing, find a rich man who takes them from a life of waitressing and living in poverty to living like the Queen of England, can kill the very person [the only person] who loves them and provides for them. I just don't get it.

Looking forward to tonight's show! I love Deadly Women! Celeste was such a sociopath. This woman had it all- beautiful twins, a man that loved her, money. She spoiled it all with her greed. She lost the love and respect from her children, her loving husband. I feel bad for anyone that ever came in contact with this "lady".

Kathryn Casey said...

Part of the problem is that they can only maintain for so long, Leah. Many times this happens when the men are beginning to get wise, and the women believe they may be on the way out.

You're right, Pam; Celeste was a spoiler.

Leah said...

That makes sense KC. I saw a program about Celeste and her daughters were in it. I really felt bad for them for the way their mother treated them. They were very courageous to do what was right and help put her away. Steve was very good to her daughters as well and they seemed to care deeply for him. Such a tragic waste of a good man's life.

I've seen that program to Leah. Her daughters really cared about Steve and I don't think they maintain contact with there mother.

I look forward to seeing new episodes of Deadly Women. Its a wee bit melodramatic but interesting none the less.
