Belle Gunness: The Norwegian Black Widow

Retired FBI agent and criminal profiler Candice DeLong explores the case of Belle Gunness, a Norwegian immigrant who arrived in America in the late 1800s. Known as “The Black Widow,” Belle found financial stability through multiple marriages...but the men she entrapped met gruesome ends, with their remains discovered buried on her property. The true extent of Belle Gunness’ crimes remains unknown, but it is believed that she killed at least fourteen people, including her own children and several suitors. After her crimes were discovered, Gunness disappeared without a trace. Many suspect she faked her own death and lived off her victims’ money. See Privacy Policy at and California Privacy Notice at
