This duo of murderers raped, tortured, and killed more than 20 people at Lake’s ranch located in California. Lake got arrested in 1985 but soon after committed suicide. His partner in crime, Charles Ng was arrested for shoplifting at a hardware store.
The police searched Lake’s ranch in California and found a huge amount of human remains. Ng was identified as Lake’s accomplice in crime during the search of Lake’s ranch. However, he escaped to Canada before getting arrested. His extradition to the United States was long but he finally stood trial in the USA in 1998 on more than 10 counts of murder. He was sentenced to death and is now on death row at San Quentin State Prison.
