French murder victim, she was slain by serial killer Henri Désiré Landru (1869-1922) who murdered at least seven women in the village of Gambais between December 1915 and January 1919.
Anna Collomb was a clever, attractive widow who worked as a typist at an insurance company in Paris and had had a string of lovers since the death of her alcoholic, bankrupt husband (Émile Collomb) a decade earlier. Her motive for answering Landru's 1 May 1915 lonely hearts advertisement was probably because she wanted a stepfather for her illegitimate young daughter, whom she had reportedly placed in the care of nuns in Italy. The little girl was never traced by the police.
Landru murdered Anna Collomb on 27 December 1916 in Gambais when she was aged 45.
