Aileen Carol Wuornos was an American serial killer who murdered 7 men between 1989 and 1990 by shooting them. A prostitute, Wuornos claimed that all of her victims had attempted to assault or rape her and that the killings were in self-defense. At her sentencing, the defense showed psychiatric results diagnosing Wuornos with both borderline personality and bipolar disorder and that she was mentally unstable. Four days later, she was sentenced to death. Wuornos was executed via lethal injection in 2002.

Wuornos declined to have a special last meal, and opted for a burger and snacks from the prison canteen. She later had a cup of coffee.
