Richard Ramirez was an American serial killer, rapist, and burglar. He was known as the ‘Night Stalker’ before his real identity was exposed. An aggressive and brutal criminal, he broke into people’s homes at night, viciously attacked them, raped the women, and murdered most of his victims. Initially, he terrorized the residents of the greater Los Angeles area, and later moved to the San Francisco area once the police began looking for him in Los Angeles. Born to an abusive Mexican-American railway worker, Ramirez had a troubled childhood. As a teenager, he fell into the company of a sadistic cousin who was older than him. His cousin boasted of raping and killing numerous women which fascinated Richard. Inspired by his cousin, he too embarked on a sadistic and brutal spree of burglaries, rapes, and murders. He was finally arrested after a two-year rampage. Counted amongst the most vicious and cold-blooded murderers ever to operate in the United States, Richard was a staunch Satanist who never expressed any remorse for the crimes that he committed. In spite of his notoriety, he had some fans, one of whom married him while he was imprisoned. After a long trial, he was convicted of 13 killings and sentenced to death. He died of an illness while on the death row.
