richard ramirez night stalker dead 53 san quentin death row convicted mass murderer rapist

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

There are conflicting reports as to the cause of his death. One source says Richard died of natural causes, another says he contracted Hepatitis C and that killed him.

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.

    I understand why people who are convicted of a crime should get appeals, because they could have been wrongfully accused or convicted. But he was sentenced in 1989, does it really take that long to go through appeals so that these a-holes can die a cushy life in prison? Why do violent criminals get 3 square meals, TV's, magazines, play time and visitors?

    Re: fid – The death penalty is as barbaric as his crimes, but draped in the glorious and pure robes of Justice.

    Wow it took this long for this crazy killer to dye. Natural cause???? Please he needed to be electrocuted by the East LA folks when they had a piece of him.

    Re: fid – actually, if he was held in solitary he would not have access to TV and only specific reading material is allowed. Also he may only have been allowed family visitors, such as the psycho bitch who married him after he was convicted…..still not right and he should have been executed a long time ago.

    if you give somebody a death sentence get on with it and do it. dragging it out for 20 years is just insane and costs millions in prison costs and endless trials and hearings! its like the worst of both worlds…no death and very costly.

    I was so scared when this guy was terrorizing LA, just petrified. So glad he died. Now if only Charles Manson would die also, my weekend would be complete.
