    Oddie's Historical Feature - Episode 17

    This Historical Features details the the story of the Papin Sisters – their upbringing – the murders - and their trial & final years.
    Christine & Léa Papin grew up in Le Mans, France. After a tragic upbringing, things appeared to be going in the right direction for them; they had a good job as head servant/cook & chambermaid in a the house of a wealthy middle class family. By all accounts, they were fed & treated well & had a comfortable heated room on the third floor of the large house of Monsieur Lancelin & his family.
    Then one day, the girls snapped...leaving a horrific trail in their wake.
    No one could quite believe that these two kind & demure young women, could be capable of such shocking & grisly murders.

    Many thanks to one of my sweet viewer's 'Melissa Sutton' for suggesting I research this case.
