William Lester Suff
William Suff is California's latest serial killer. In 1974 Will and his then
wife were convicted of beating their two-month-old daughter to death. Although
he was sentenced to seventy years in the Big House he was out on parole by 1984.
Too bad for the twelve or more prostitutes he subsequently raped, stabbed,
strangled and sometimes mutilated in Riverside County. His alleged killing spree
started in 1986. On January 9, 1993, he was arrested after a routine traffic
A Doctor Jeckyll and Mr. Hyde type, Suff worked as a government stock clerk who helped deliver the furniture for the task force investigating his killing spree. He liked to impersonate police officers and cooked a mean chili at office picnics. He was also writing a book about dogs that went berserk and started killing people. Furthermore, he enjoyed vanity plates and was an avid volunteer in the county's car-pooling program. All of this perhaps explaining his psychotic behavior.
On July 19, 1995, Willie was found guilty of killing 12 prostitutes although police think that he might be responsible for up to 22 deaths. On November 1995, he was condemned to death and will probably car-pool to his execution.
