Three women vanished from the Northern Italian town of Correggio within the space of a year. Locals looked at local shopkeeper and fortune teller Leonarda Cianciulli for answers. When they uncovered the truth behind the disappearances, the story caused a ripple throughout the world. Not only did this mother of four murder her friends, but she also used their remains and made them into soap and cakes.
