Aileen Wuornos: The Selling of a Serial Killer (1993)

This is a documentary by Nick Broomfield profiling Aileen Wuornos, the first female serial killer who murdered men on I-75 in central Florida. That's just north of where my family lives.
The Son of Sam law is supposed to prevent people from profiting off their crimes, but Aileen and her family demand $25,000 for an interview for the documentary.  Nick interviews her born-again Christian adoptive mother, Arlene, who won't tell him anything without the $25,000 either. She says she was in an accident and "her love for Aileen pulled her through".
According to the tv news show, Arlene doesn't want any book or movie deals, and that the only motiviation for the adoption is "good old fashiioned Christian love." That, and $25,000 of course. The worst is her lawyer, Steve. That dude is straight-up crazy.
