    A serial murderer/murderess?
    A person in whom the police would be very interested?
    Very unlucky?
    A serial widow/widower?
    Probably very rich!

    Re: Question

    There exists the phrase 'black widow' for a woman who serially marries and murders rich husbands for their money. There was a movie in 1987 based on the concept.

    I suspect the term comes from the spider, in which the female eats the male after mating.
