Night Stalker Dead of Natural Causes


SAN QUENTIN (KRON) — “Night Stalker” Richard Ramirez, the convicted rapist and serial killer, has died of natural causes on California’s death row.

KRON 4’s Alecia Reid reports Ramirez died Friday morning in San Quentin. The exact cause of death has not been released.

San Quentin State Prison spokesman Lt. Sam Robinson says the 53-year-old died had recently been taken from death row to a hospital. No other details about the death were released.

Ramirez terrorized Southern California in the mid-80’s with a series of break-ins that led to murders and rapes. In 1989 a jury found him guilty of 13 counts of murder, five attempted murders, eleven sexual assaults and 14 burglaries and sentenced to death.

In 2006, the California Supreme Court upheld the death penalty for Ramirez.

San Quentin prison officials are due to release more details about his death later today.

    He should have died a long time ago.

    This POS should have been dead a long time ago. What a waste of tax money.

  • ManiaTreks

    Was the “rehabilitated”?

    • Guest

      All are rehabilitated in the eyes of the lord…


        in God’s time in God’s place. not on earth. when you live on earth, you live by man’s laws – even the bible says so.

    He did not deserve to live anyway

    Maybe his victims, including the Californians terrorized until his arrest, will have solace. Ramirez’s death will not make our planet any safer, with his life energy sucking soul now free to roam among us again. Inside San-Q, we knew where that evil was locked up.

    Having attended a Charlie Manson parole hearing… I can attest to the power of a parasitic spirit. I continue to dread the moment he’s freed from his physical confinement.

    I wish you would take old news off the internet. It is disgusting that you leave something on your site that is not current. Example this article was posted on June 7th this is August 22 and you are still pushing this no news

  • RonKeffer

    You should be posting news regarding your favorite President …..One suggestion would be:

    Obama supporters will go hysterical over this well sourced list of 252 examples of his lying, lawbreaking, corruption, cronyism, etc.
