Richard was the youngest of seven children
He had a troubled childhood, he was heavily
influenced by an older cousin Mike.
Cousin mike told him stories about the torture
and mutilation that inflicted Vietnamese
women during the Vietnam war.
When Richard was 11 he witnessed his older
cousin shoot his wife.
Cousin Mike and Richard smoked marijuana
together, then that lead to petty crime to fuel
his drug habit.
The more and more he rebelled the more and
more he spent time with his cousin.
His criminal record started in 1977, with petty
crimes and marijuana possession.
Then he moved to San Francisco, then LA, his
addiction grew to Cocaine, burglary and then an
interest in weapons and Satanism.

Then after years of delay Richards case went
on trial in 1989, then was sentenced to death.
While Richard was still in California San
Quentin Prison, he got married to women on
October 3rd, 1996. her name was Doreen
She even disagrees with people by saying
“he’s kind, he’s funny, he’s charming,” she
said “I think he’s really a great person. He’s
my best friend; he’s my buddy.”
They never had kids, it was always a dream
for Doreen but so was being with Richard.
Well he started skipping school and then
finally dropped after less than a year. But the
only subject he did well in was physical
Well he would creep up to the house in
black, then sneak in and then sometimes he
removed the eyes of his victims.
Then he would draw a pentagram with lip
stick on the walls or on the victims.
He would also mutilate them, degrade them
and he also raped then killed the victims.
Sometimes the victims survived but not all of
Ages ranging from 20 to 80
He raped children as well
Some were stabbed some shot
shot then stabbed
Some bodies were mutilated

was underneath doing repairs. Then Richard
started the engine when the man underneath
got out from underneath and started to chase

years old she was found in an old
hotel building. Then the woman was

Well most serial killers are hard to fine
because they act so normal around
people, they don’t act out. They go to
work, make money, come home, do whatever
they want then do the killings. Even in there
own twisted way, there people I don’t agree
with mind set at all but they act and look
normal. But inside there own head there way
out of line.
Well having a abusive father, or growing up
with a bad influence, just like Richard he had
a bad cousin that taught him a lot of things.
Then also getting into drugs, really bad
ones, getting into a lot of trouble.
Also having parents that don’t care what they
do or how they act.
Then maybe parents that cant keep a
relationship, like the parents getting a
divorce then remarrying then divorce.
Well I learned that Richard really didn’t have a
great father or great influence. So he didn’t
know what was right and wrong because he
was told only one thing in his life, and that
I also learned that he might have a different
life if he went to school and got good
grades, he also got into drugs. Imp not
saying that drugs are the main reason but it
didn’t help him in anyway.
