“I just loved to kill people. I love to watch them die. I would shoot them in the head and they would wiggle and squirm all over the place, and then just stop. Or I would cut them with a knife and watch their faces turn real white. I love all that blood.” said serial killer Richard Ramirez in 1985. The killings began on June 28, 1984, when Richard Ramirez slit the throat of a 79-year-old woman, Jennie Vincow, during a burglary. They ended when an angry mob, recognizing him from his mug shot released to the news media, beat him and held him until the police arrived to make an arrest on Aug. 31, 1985. Richard Ramirez – or better known as ‘the Night Stalker’ – was born in El Paso, Texas, into a less than normal family life; his father, a former Santa Fe railroad worker and peeping tom, was prone to temper tantrums and bouts of extreme physical violence. His cousin Mike, a Vietnam veteran, had taken pride in killing and raping the enemy – and taught Richard all he knew about his ‘craft.’ At age twenty five, Richard Ramirez’s skin and muscle were crafted rock. His face, once uncommonly handsome for a young man who’d undergone such horrors, now appeared to have been carved out of granite. Murderous – robotic, systematically programmed to do what he was told, regardless of the repercussions, he had forgotten anything and everything he ever wanted; he had been convinced he already had everything he would ever need: Satan as his mentor and savior – and the thirst for blood. In THE NIGHT PROWLER: THE RICHARD RAMIREZ STORY, author Chad Nicholas Combs offers an insight into ritual abuse and it’s terrifying repercussions – creating a monster. Bonus material: an in depth interview with Richard Ramirez conducted in 1989 but never published in book form until now.
