Icon07 Bettie Page mug shot

Comment: Pin-up beauty ( Bettie Page’s mugshot from October 29th 1972 ) Many of Bettie’s fans don’t seem to know that she left the pinup world and became a religious fanatic. Years later she was diagnosed of having ( acute schizophrenia ) and she eventually spent 20 months in a state mental institution because she stabbed three people. A husband and wife the first time, and her 66 year old roommate the second time because she said that ( God inspired her to do it ) She died at the age of 85.

For the record, I was 15 months old in Oct '72, and I was not in Fla at the time!

Hello Kitty

Her Wikipedia page says that she was arrested for assault after getting into a fight with a landlord, which is not the same as having stabbed three people.

Reading

The book The Real Bettie Page: The Truth About the Queen of Pinups does document that she was arrested twice for stabbing incidents (one against her roommate and one against her elderly landlords). Those events occurred after the 1972 incident for which she was arrested and photographed (as shown above) in 1972, when she taken into custody for assaulting her ex-husband.
