An Indiana woman accused of killing up to 40 people could be the subject of a film being planned by a LaPorte native.
Stephen Ruminski is trying to raise money to tell the story of Belle Gunness. The Norway native moved to LaPorte in the early 1900s and is believed to have used lonely hearts ads to lure wealthy men to her farm, where she took their possessions and killed them.
Dozens of bodies were dug up after a fire destroyed the farmhouse in 1908.
Ruminski has already made a documentary about the woman known as Lady Bluebeard. He tells The Indianapolis Star (http://indy.st/PzqIKC ) he decided to pursue a feature film to ensure the story is true to history.
Ruminski says the Gunness story is "gruesome" but fascinating.
