Annals of Crime #73


Original Caption:

Compton -- Admissions by Lois Margaret Carter, 20, that she beat her 3 year old daughter to death in "symbolic revenge" against her own mother were disclosed by Compton police yesterday. "It seemed as if every time I hit the baby I was striking Mama a whack for me," detectives quoted Mrs. Carter as saying. Photo shows Mrs. Carter after her arrest last night. (1954)

Yeah -- right; they call her Lois Margaret Carter.

But I think we all know who she really is.

Ritchie must have been very disappointed to learn of his sister's criminal past . . . .

My first thought: Wow, she's pretty, I wonder who that is.

Then I read the caption. Yikes.
