  • Locusta was an infamous poisoner and murderer for hire in Ancient Rome during the reign of Nero, is said to have poisoned the Emperor Claudius in the plot to put Nero in power and continued to serve as the emperor's personal poisoner. After Nero killed himself when facing the prospect of being put on trial in the Senate, Locusta was one of a number of people accused of collaborating with Nero. According to accounts taken from the time, Locusta was punished for her crimes by being publicly raped by a specially trained giraffe, then getting ripped apart by wild animals. The Other Wiki says the giraffe rape is an Urban Myth, but it's still a great way to die.
Appears to be a prank, see Talk:Locusta.
