Los Angeles, CA – February 27, 2013. Global Entertainment Holdings (OTC: GBHL) announced today that Global Universal Film Group, a wholly-owned subsidiary, has commenced sales of its true crime film on DVD, Damsel of Death, to be coupled with the book, Lethal Intent by Sue Russell. Also, included, on the back page of the book with the DVD, is an authentic copy of the original deal memo signed by serial killer, Aileen Wuornos and her attorney, authorizing Jackelyn Giroux to write Ms. Wuornos’ true story. In 1991, Giroux devoted nine months interviewing Wuornos and others, which inspired her film with stunning events that have never been revealed.
This limited edition collectible released today by GBHL contains the book, the DVD and a true copy of the original deal memo, signed by Aileen Wuornos, and believed to be the only signed contract of its kind. GBHL selected Sugar Rose Enterprises of Melbourne, FL to distribute this first run, limited edition of Lethal Intent and the DVD film, Damsel of Death; true crime memorabilia released today for sale on eBay and Amazon.
Jackelyn Giroux commented, “This is not just based upon a true story; this IS the true story. Aileen Wuornos approved every page of the screenplay for the DVD film. True crime enthusiasts should enjoy reading the book, viewing the DVD, and knowing that it’s all true, as the attached deal memo evidences. Although the DVD was made on a ‘shoe string’ budget, I am happy it is finally available to the public because it is a story that needs to be told (a quote at the beginning of the film by Geraldo Rivera). A decade after her death, I thank Global for having the insight to release this collector’s book, DVD and signed deal memo for true crime enthusiasts to cherish and understand what Wuornos’ life was really like.”
Aileen Carol Wuornos (February 29, 1956 – October 9, 2002) was proclaimed America’s female serial killer because she killed seven men in Florida in 1989 and 1990. Wuornos claimed the murders were in self defense. Wuornos was convicted and sentenced to death for six of the murders and was executed by the State of Florida by lethal injection on October 9, 2002. She spoke to Jackelyn Giroux the day she was arrested, and gave her rights to Ms. Giroux before she was arraigned. Her story is haunting because she was on the streets at the age of 13 years old, prostituting and living in abandoned vehicles. Psychiatrists could never agree if Wuornos was insane or if she murdered for recognition and fame.
