French homicide; murdered at least ten women between 1915-1919 after proposing marriage and cheating them of property and money. He shot, stabbed, dismembered, buried or burned his victims.

Landru was the son of a fireman at the ironworks and a mother who worked at home as a dressmaker. He was clever in school, earning praise from his teachers. Catholic, he served as an altar boy and a subdeacon. On 11/15/1890, he served in the army. His vocation was work for an architect.

On 6/04/1891, he fathered a child by Marie Catherine, the daughter of his cousin and two years later, on 10/07/1893, married her. They had three more kids.

Landru was convicted of fraud perpetrated in 1900, 1901 and 1903, and again in 1906, sentenced to two years prison 5/19/1906. His mom died in 1912 and his dad committed suicide 8/27/1912, hanging himself from a tree, disgraced to find that his son had been in prison.

No.1. In December 1914, Landru met Mme Jeanne Cuchet, whom he murdered, along with her 17-year-old son Andre in April or May 1915.

No. 2. On 6/25/1915, he killed Therese Laborde-Line, 47.

The modern Bluebeard was arrested on 4/13/1919, Paris, and went to trial 11/07/1921. During the trial his manner was calm, genteel and unctuous. He appeared respectable with a short, neat beard and a dignified demeanor; his repartee was quick. He stated that he had had sexual relations with 283 women. Landru was found guilty of 11 murders, ten women and a youth. He was sent to the guillotine 2/25/1922, Versailles, France.
