In the late 1970s, Los Angeles was a hotbed for serial killers. Randy Kraft prowled Southern California’s seemingly endless network of highways, murdering young men. William Bonin, the “Freeway Killer,” stalked the streets in a beat-up van, killing at least 21 boys and young men.

For four months, starting in October 1977, the residents of South California were living in fear of a monster who strangled and raped women as young as 12, and scattered their naked bodies around hillsides.

Starting off by murdering three sex workers, the Strangler eventually began abducting young women regardless of race or background, before simply vanishing for good.

What people did not expect, was that it was the work of not one, but two insatiable killers – cousins Kenneth Bianchi and Angelo Buono.
