In 1929, a series of arsenic murders was exposed, and a group of women were arrested on suspicion of poisoning their husbands and relatives. The leader of the group was the local midwife, Julia Fazekas, and it is believed she extracted arsenic from flypaper. It took police a decade to catch on to the horrific crimes being committed in the small town of Nagyrév.
