Richard Ramirez, a.k.a. The Night Stalker, is dead at 53.
He died on death row in San Quentin State Prison, the only place he's lived since being sentenced to death back in 1989.
Richard earned the nickname The Night Stalker because he snuck in through his victims windows late at night during a rape-murder spree that claimed at least 13 lives in the Los Angeles area back in the mid-80s
Either way, his days were numbered.
The serial murderer and rapist was scheduled for state execution years ago, but his lawyers' steady string of appeals kept postponing the sentencing.
