Dorothea Puente













Dorothea Puente's old house at 1426 F Street in Sacramento, California is for sale. Who is Dorothea Puente, you ask? She is a woman who ran a “boarding house” in the 1980s out of her Sacramento Victorian-style home. Unfortunately her tenants were drugged and murdered so their social security checks could be cashed. Eventually seven bodies were found buried in Dorothea’s backyard.

This property sold for $560,000 on 08/31/2005, went into foreclosure last year, and is now listed on the market at around $300K. The current MLS listing states, “Property has notorious history that must be disclosed.” 

The FBI states that males make up at least 90% of the world-wide total of serial killers. Out of only 10% in the world who are female serial killers, one was found in Jeani Rector's own home town of Sacramento, California. Dorothea Puente was apprehended on November 11, 1988 and now serves life in Central California's Women's Facility (CCWF) in Madera County, California.

Interestingly enough, another rare type of serial killer lived in Jeani Rector's home town as well. 84% of all serial killers are Caucasian. But also in the 1980s, Morris Solomon Jr., a black man, murdered six prostitutes in Sacramento. Morris Solomon Jr.'s case failed to gain national attention due to the second, more controversial case of serial murder in Sacramento committed by Dorothea Puente.

Although Dorothea's house went up for sale last March, as of this issue of The Horror Zine, it has not yet sold. Notice how the back yard is now completely cemeted over. See a realitor's article about the house HERE.
