Woman executed for driving truck into a crowd of people

March 12, 1975
Prague, Czechoslovakia
Olga Hepnarová is hanged for driving a truck into a group of people, killing 8 and injuring 12

The murders took place on July 10, 1973. Her targets were people waiting for a tram, and those killed were elderly between 60 to 79 years old. Her alleged motive for the attack was revenge against society, and a letter sent to a newspaper attributed to Hepnarová read:

I am a loner. A destroyed woman. A woman destroyed by people… I have a choice – to kill myself or to kill others. I choose TO PAY BACK MY HATERS. It would be too easy to leave this world as an unknown suicide victim. Society is too indifferent, rightly so. My verdict is: I, Olga Hepnarová, the victim of your bestiality, sentence you to death.

Hepnarová was the last woman to be executed in Czechoslovakia.
