Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Mary Flora Bell was convicted in December 1968 of the manslaughter of two boys, Martin Brown. Bell was ten years old when she killed Brown, and eleven when she killed Howe. Bell's mother Betty was a prostitute who was often absent from the family home, travelling to Glasgow to work. Mary was her first child, born when Betty was 17 years old. It is not known who Mary's biological father was; for most of her life she believed it to be Billy Bell, a habitual criminal later arrested for armed robbery who had married Betty some time after Mary was born. Independent accounts from family members strongly suggest that Betty had attempted to kill Mary and make her death look accidental more than once during the first few years of her life.show more
