Deadly Women Wiki

The Vulnerable is the 13th episode of Season 9, airing on November 6, 2015.


Sara Moore becomes a live-in caretaker for elderly multiple sclerosis victim Richard Englander, but is more interested in his money than in his welfare and drains his bank accounts to support her crack habit. In February 2014, Richard decides to fire her after only five days and notifies the police, and Sara bludgeons him with a tire iron and stabs him in the neck. She pleads guilty to second-degree murder and is sentenced to 25 years to life.

Latvian immigrant Angelika Gavare is a single mom working as a clerk in suburban Adelaide, Australia, who dreams of the good life. In December 2008, after stealing petty cash from her customers proves insufficient, she goes after 82-year-old Vonne McGlynn, bludgeoning her to death and dismembering the corpse so she can steal the elderly woman's money. She receives 32 years to life; Vonne's head and hands are still missing.

Denise Goodwin is hired to care for lung cancer patient Carolyn Rabourn, and also bonds with Carolyn's husband, Gerald, who makes her a signatory of his bank accounts after learning she is a trustee. He little suspects Denise's credentials as a trustee are forged and that she has a history of taking advantage of the elderly. Three weeks after his wife's death, Gerald disappears, and Denise eventually steals $600,000 from the Rabourns. Gerald's body is never found, but Denise nevertheless receives life without parole for fraud and first-degree murder.
