It was mainly due to disrupting in the court with the pentagram on his hand and yelling obscenities Life in Prison/
Groupies Conclusion to my Study I don't know if all serial killers are considered evil, but I feel that Richard Ramirez is not necessarily evil. Who's my main focus? Why? Are all serial killer controlled by Satan? or do they worship him? He dropped out of high school by the 9th grade.
He was kicked out of his home and decide to move out to Los Angeles. Ramirez first attempt to burglary and murder was June 28, 1984 to a Ms. Jennie Vincow.
During this attack, he was high on cocaine and realized that the drug was making his paranoid during the attack. This was the time where he realized that he needed to go to a better drug, marijuana, and continue on with his impulses.
It wouldn't kill again until March 17, 1985. These attacks would continue until his last victims August 24, 1985 28 June 1984: Jennie Vincow - raped and murdered

24 August 1985: Inez Erickson - raped Timeline & Victims I feel that he is misunderstood by people in a society that doesn't care about anything, but the "norm."
Most are not influenced by rock music, however, Richard Ramirez was an example of being influenced by AC/DC, the people who made it. He lives today on death row in San Quentin, California.
While in prison he has received a great amount of letters from ladies being "in love" or obsessed with him.
One fair lady, Doreen Loiy, was able to send 75 letters, and win a proposal from the Night Stalker.
They were wed on October 3, 1996 in a large white visiting room in San Quentin. August 30, 1985 was the day that he was finally captured.
Cops had finally found evidence due to finger prints, his shoes by Avia that were in multiple crime scenes.
He was in the East L.A. area when he was chased down by an angry mob from the community.
The police finally came and arrested him. Conviction He was charged with 14 counts of murder, 5 attempted murders, 2 kidnapping, 7 rape, 19 burglary, 6 robbery, 15 sexual assault.
He was convicted of a total of fourteen murders and the death penalty in San Quentin, California.
