Transcript of Copy of Randy Steven Kraft
Randy Kraft was never diagnosed with any medical or mental disorders. To this day kraft denies that he killed anyone and will not release any information or his thoughts on why he did what he did.
In 1981, Kraft was convicted of 16 counts of murder, 1 count of sodomy, and 1 count of emasculation. In 2000, he was officially put on death row and is currently awaiting his death sentence today.
As a child, Kraft was raised in a strict society where being gay was heavily frowned upon, with him not being able to express himself this may have led to his desires and killing later on. Also while in college he heavily experimented with drugs and was drinking A lot. Then when in the Air Force he was discharged for being gay and that could have led to his rage.
