  1. The First guy and second guy is handsome why would they rape somebody 😭😂 they can get pussies tho 😂 the last guy is hulk Hogan

  2. I'm glad that they have this clown in custody and now he will get years to deal with his atrocities inflicted on his victims which shall come upon him with interest….

  3. Good ,but my question is one that probably doesn't matter did the police not suspect this man ?I think at one time they thought it could have been someone in law enforcement I have no sympathy or empathy for this person ,no matter what his age or health ,he tortured ,murdered, humiliated and emotionally scared people for life .

  4. it's not way he just stop killing in 86 I believe there are way more people he killed and women he raped I bet he never stopped

  5. I lived in East Sacramento in the days of the East Area Rapist less than a mile from one of his crimes… Such a huge case in those days… I am glad it was not forgotten… He caused a lot of pain….

  6. could this guy be the zodiac killer, as well as the the golden gate killer. same area, very elusive. makes you wonder???

  7. No surprise, another white male serial killer. How did he get away for so long?! Umm, because he's a young white male.

  8. A white cop, surprise surprise. I’m not surprised at all that a white cop has been getting away with heinous crimes for decades. They should just blow his guilty brains out.
