Richard Ramirez aka The Night Stalker died of liver failure in prison. Never making it to the execution he so justly deserved. Ramirez was convicted of 13 murders in the 1980's. Ramirez was noted for shooting victims in the head or cutting their throats . Raping some of the females and burglarizing the homes afterward. He also enjoyed doing all this at night thus the Night Stalker.
Ramirez was finally caught when he tried a carjacking in an upper blue collar neighborhood and got his butt beat. This guy was into Satan worship and really put California on edge for several years. Shame though, he really deserved a seriously gruesome execution.
