Caroline Hargreave was a black widow who killed her way out of the middle class.


Caroline Hargeave killed her first husband to collect his life insurance, then had her second killed to gain more of the same, even seducing his lawyer friend Wilson Katz so he would do all that she said. Caroline tried tracking down her stepdaughter Bunny to silence her about the second murder, which led to Harry Denton's murder.

Ultimately, without any hard evidence, Caroline was let go, although to everyone involved her crimes were obvious, doing little to hide them short of actually implicating herself. Caroline even winked at Detective Lilly Rush as she left, enjoying the fact that the younger woman couldn't arrest her for murders they all knew she committed.
