Bonnie Lou broke her silence and decided to talk about her marriage to Richard Evonitz, a man who killed at least three teenage girls.

Serial killer stories are chilling, and the scariest part is that they happened. People are highly engaged in the true crime genre, evidenced by the tremendous success of crime podcasts and series like "Dahmer Monster: The Jeffrey Dahmer Story"—which is getting a second season.

Bonnie Lou decided to reveal her story after many years, which is both horrifying and incredible. As part of a TikTok trend, she disclosed that the man she married at the age of 17 turned out to be a serial killer.

She was 17, he was 25. She married serial killer Richard Evonitz

Bonnie Lou started her first video by hooking the audience with, "Bend your finger if you also..." — following a popular TikTok trend.

The video has garnered 24.5 million views, and she has announced that she is writing a book about her experiences. She shared more details about the beginnings of her relationship with the notorious killer. Richard Evonitz committed suicide after his intended victim, Kara Robinson, managed to escape and alert the police.

She married her friend's older brother, who turned out to be a serial killer, kidnapper, and rapist

Bonnie talks about how she was infatuated with her friend's older brother. It's a rather stereotypical story, but she highlights the significant age difference between them; she was 17, and he was 25. Her parents "blessed" the union, pleased that she was with a "known family." Bonnie said she felt "obligated" to properly care for her husband: doing laundry, cooking, and cleaning. Only later did she realize that married life isn't supposed to be like that. For now, this is the last part of Bonnie's story, but more episodes will likely follow soon.
