Richard Ramirez dies

Richard Ramirez dies, Richard Ramirez, the serial killer known as “the Night Stalker” who terrorized Los Angeles County and was convicted in 1989 of 13 murders, died Friday, California corrections officials said. He was 53.

Mr. Ramirez died of natural causes at a hospital in Marin County, the department said in a statement. No details were released.

Sentenced to death, Mr. Ramirez, who was housed at San Quentin prison, was one of 735 offenders facing execution and one of 59 who have died from natural causes since capital punishment in California was reinstated in 1978.

Mr. Ramirez was a chilling figure during his crime spree in 1984 and 1985 and throughout his lengthy trial. When he was sentenced on Nov. 8, 1989, the devil-worshiping Mr. Ramirez told a judge, the jurors and a packed courtroom that included some of his victims’ relatives: “You don’t understand me. You are not expected to. You are not capable of it. I am beyond your experience.”

He vowed: “I will be avenged. Lucifer dwells in us all.”

Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Michael Tynan agreed with the husky-voiced Mr. Ramirez on one point: His crimes, which included gouging out a victim’s eyes, were “beyond any human understanding.”
