25 Most Bizarre Criminals Ever

#13 – Richard Ramirez

Richard Ramirez, also known as the “Night Stalker,” was an American serial murderer and a member of a Satanic cult who terrorized the citizens of Los Angeles between 1984 and 1985. Ramirez would break into the homes of his victims at night and then shot, rape, mutilate, and in the end, kill them. He wasn’t too picky.

Ramirez’s victims ranged between the ages of a nine-year-old female child to a couple in their sixth life decade. Ramirez smeared pentagrams on the walls of people he murdered. He was captured in 1985 and sentenced to the capital punishment. He was on death row for two decades until he died of lymphoma.
