Biography and Career:

Dorothea Puente was born on January 9, 1929. She is a convicted American serial killer.

Puente was born in San Bernardino County, California. Her parents died and she was sent to an orphanage until relatives took her in.

She married Fred McFaul in 1945. She was only 16 at that time. Dorothea had two daughters between 1946 and 1948 and sent one to relatives and gave the other for adoption. McFaul became fed up and left her in 1948.

Later she tried to forge checks, but she was eventually caught and sentenced to a year in jail. After serving time in jail she was impregnated by a man and got pregnant again. In 1952, she married Axel Johanson, a marriage which lasted 14 years.

She was arrest ed twice for owning and managing a brothel and was sentenced to 90 days in the Sacramento County Jail two times.

A friend named Ruth Monroe started living in her upstairs apartment in April 1982 but soon died from an overdose of drugs. A few weeks later, the police were back after another tenant named Malcolm McKenzie accused her of drugging and stealing from him. In 1982 she was convicted of three charges of theft and sentenced to five years in jail.

Puente hired handyman Ismael Florez to install some wood paneling in her apartment in November 1985. Puente gave him a 1980 Ford pickup in good condition, which she stated belonged to her boyfriend.

On November 11, 1988 police were inquiring the disappearance of tenant Alvaro Montoya and noticing disturbed soil on the property, they uncovered seven bodies from there. Puente was charged with a total of nine murders, convicted of three, and is now serving two life sentences.
