"Don't be fooled by me. Don't be fooled by the face that I wear for I wear a thousand masks; masks that I'm afraid to take off and none of them are me. Pretending is an art that is second nature to me but do not be fooled. For God's sake don't be fooled."
--Judy Buenoano, shortly before her death row execution

"I'm a good person inside, but when I get drunk, I just don't know...I've got nothing to lose...What am I supposed to do?...It was all their fault and that's the God's honest truth."
--Aileen "Lee" Carol Wuornos, inspiration for the 2003 film Monster

"She said, 'You'd never believe about some of the things we are doing at the nursing home.' I knew things were out of control."

--Steve White, son of Virginia Susan Caudill's murder victim
