Richard Ramirez - Night Stalker
Richard Ramirez, also known as the night stalker, was a satan worshiper and sociopath, killing at least 16 people between 1984 and 1989. After breaking into homes, his method of killing was shooting, strangulation, and rape. Police were able to help capture Ramirez after discovering a rare sneaker print outside of a victim's home. Ramirez was sentenced to death in 1989 and married one of his groupies. Perhaps the most memorable thing Ramirez did in court was hold up a pentagram inked on his palm, all the while smiling at the press, "See you in Disneyland," he said. Ramirez died of lymphoma in 2013 after spending 24 years in San Quentin.
