(Czechoslovak Rampage Killer Who Killed Eight People with a Truck in Prague)
Birthday: June 30, 1951 (Cancer)
Born In: Prague, Czechia
Olga Hepnarová was a Czech murderer executed for killing eight people with a truck in 1973. Olga was the last woman to be executed in Czechoslovakia. She had developed psychiatric problems after being bullied in school. She even tried killing herself at the age of 13 but did not succeed in her attempt. With time, she decided to show her hatred toward society by killing people. She planned a mass murder and rammed her truck into 25 people who were waiting for a tram in Prague. Prior to the incident, she mailed letters to newspapers, claiming she had been “destroyed” by people and would definitely not leave the world by committing suicide. She claimed that she would instead pay back to her haters. Her intention was very clear. She wished to kill as many people as possible and did not show a hint of guilt while confessing the same after her arrest. She was sentenced to death by the ‘City Court,’ and the decision was upheld by the higher courts. She was executed in 1975, after it was proved that she was fully aware of her actions. She was executed by short-drop hanging.
