Cynthia Coffman was a serial killer who, together with her partner James Gregory Marlow, kidnapped, raped and murdered four women in the period of a month in 1986.
Coffman was smitten with Marlow, who she met after leaving a loveless marriage she had been forced into after she became pregnant at the age of 17. Marlow had been a thief since he was 10 years old, and had a long criminal history for robberies and similar crimes when he met Coffman in 1986.
The pair originally started off committing robberies together, which eventually progressed to the kidnapping and murder of women who they picked up off the streets, their decomposing corpses discovered by police, sometimes in shallow graves and sometimes left behind in motel rooms.
The pair of them married prior to their murder spree, with Coffman marking the occasion by getting a tattoo on her buttocks that read:
I belong to the Folsom Wolf. That done, they drifted west again, in search of easy prey.
