Victims of Jolly Joseph’s Murder Spree

Jolly Joseph’s horrific crimes left six individuals dead; each caught unaware in her web of deceit. Her attacks were brutal and premeditated – which made the impactful message she sent even more shocking.

  • Annamma Thomas (2002): Jolly began her violent killing spree by murdering his own mother-in-law Annamma Thomas with an intentional injection of cyanide poison into Annamma’s mutton soup in 2002, marking the beginning of an extended campaign aimed at seizing control over family assets.
  • Roy Thomas (2011): Roy Thomas became Jolly’s second victim when in 2011 she poisoned him with cyanide to get him out of her path and facilitate future plans and her subsequent marriage to Shaju Zachariah. Jolly did it all under cover of being his loving wife; so much for love being blind, even for Jolly herself!
  • Cili and Alphine (2014): Jolly perpetrated an elaborate double homicide when she poisoned Cili Zachariah (Shaju’s former wife) and Alphine with cyanide to rid themselves of any remnants from Shaju Zachariah’s previous life and facilitate Jolly’s plans of creating a new family dynamic for Shaju Zachariah.
  • Mathew Manchadiyil (2014): Mathew was Annamma Thomas’ brother. After becoming increasingly insistent upon investigating Roy Thomas’ death in 2014, Jolly saw Mathew as an existential threat and silenced him with cyanide to keep her past killings hidden away from public scrutiny.
  • Tom Thomas (2016): Jolly continued her murderous spree by poisoning Tom’s medication to further consolidate her grip over Tom Thomas and its assets, eliminating another possible challenger to her diabolical plans.
  • Annamma (2016): Jolly struck again, this time against Roy Thomas’ second wife Annamma using poison. By eliminating Annamma via this familiar method she gained total control of Roy Thomas and their assets and wealth.

These 14 years-long murders display a disturbing pattern of calculated killing. Every victim was selected as part of Jolly Joseph’s plan for familial and financial control – making this spree among one of the most chilling in recent history.
