In the late 1990’s Anthony Pignataro was a big-shot plastic surgeon in New York. He drove around in his red Lamborghini and gained international fame for inventing a “Snap on” hairpiece that connected to bolts he drilled into the skulls of bald men. His image was shattered in 1997, when Pignataro’s long history of medical malpractice came to light after another death of a patient, and soon afterwards his wife Debbie was struck down by a mysterious illness.
In 1906, in Stockton, California, Emma LaDoux was in a bigamous pickle. She had one too many husbands. How would she avail herself out of this “too many dicks on the dance floor” problamo? Let’s just say her solution involved a large trunk, a hell of a lot of morphine and one enormous flowered hat.
