There have been one of the most dreaded serial killers in the world. But there are some names, whose soul shivers only after hearing its name. Such a pity whose seeing the list of crimes, the devil may also get frightened. One such devil is named Richard Ramirez. The world also named him ‘Night Stalker’. He was charged with 13 counts of murder, 5 attempts to murder, 11 rapes and 14 robbery cases. However, this is only the official figure. Hearing of his crime and the manner of committing the crime, the judge also got shook in the court. The judge sentenced this serial killer to death not once or twice but 19 times.
The judge said in his judgment, “Its crimes are beyond the limits of cruelty and viciousness beyond any human comprehension.” In January this year, a series called ‘Night Stalker: Searching for a Serial Killer’ also appeared on Netflix. From June 1984 to August 1985 in California, USA, this dreaded criminal crossed all limits of impunity. In 1985, the chain of terror began on 17 March, when it killed two women. He was sentenced on November 20, 1989, but in 2013 he died of cancer.
First took the murder and then took it out
Richard Ramirez enjoyed seeing his awe in the eyes of those who died more than the murder. Therefore, he used to create his own fear every time before killing someone. Before shooting a woman, she pulled him out of the window and then shot him. Similarly, he took the eyes of a woman named Maxine Jazara with him. He killed an 81-year-old man by beating him with a hammer. How big he was alive, it can be gauged from this that he used to eat food sitting near the corpses. After the murder, he often ate the things kept in the house.
Marks ‘Devil Zindabad’
Richard Ramirez used to leave a special mark every time he committed a crime. This sign means ‘Satan Zindabad’. He would often leave this mark on the wall or at the foot of the corpse. It was also learned that he used to call ‘Shaitan Zindabad’ from his victims.
Not even the children were spared
Richard used all kinds of weapons for the murders. Gun, knife, ax, hammer, sword all. He did not spare even the children. He sexually abused several children and brutally murdered them. Later, a six-year-old boy who survived his attack helped identify him.
Caught due to shoes
This killer had created panic all over California. But he was out of the grip of the police. The police found a footprint from the site of the incident, which showed that it was a brand name of Avia. That brand was the choice of a particular kind of people. The killer wore a shoe number 11.5. Five such pair of shoes were sold in Arizona and one in Los Angeles. This led to his identification.
He used to tell himself that the hunter of the night came in this way
In August 1985, Ramirez entered a California home. He shot three bullets into the head of a man named Bill Carns. After this he raped her fiancé Inez Erikson and killed her a lot. Later tied it up. He summoned the woman to Satan Zindabad. After the looting, he said that if people ask, then say, ‘I am the hunter of the night’. With the help of this woman, the police made her sketch. The killer was unaware that his sketch had been made. When he returned to Los Angeles from his brother’s house, people recognized him. He tried to run away, but was caught by the mob. Before the arrival of the police, people beat him fiercely.
