Enriqueta Martí

Enriqueta Martí

A Spanish woman named Enriqueta Martí turned to prostitution after divorcing her husband. During the day, she would dress up in rags and beg on the streets of Barcelona. She used poor children to pass off as her own in an effort to appeal to potential donors. When night fell, she prostituted the children or murdered them in order to use their remains for her “potions” because she was also a witch doctor. She was arrested in 1912 and died a year later at the hands of her prison mates.
