About Richard Ramirez
Ricardo Leyva Muñoz Ramírez, popularly known as Richard Ramirez, made the headlines in August 1985 after the police released his photo to the media and declared him wanted for numerous murders, sexual assaults, burglary and attempted murders. The serial killer’s crime spree began in April 1984 and ended in August 1985, when he was arrested.
Ramirez’s experiences in childhood shaped his character in adulthood and explain his cruel crimes. His father, Julian, reportedly had anger issues and physically abused him frequently. He also had a cousin named Mike Ramirez, a Vietnam War veteran who influenced him negatively with his stories about his sexual assaults of the Vietnamese women and their murders. He also went on nocturnal “peeping Tom” adventures with Roberto, the husband of his elder sister, Ruth.
He was given nineteen death sentences after he was found guilty of 14 counts of burglary, 11 counts of sexual assault, 5 counts of attempted murder and 13 counts of murder in September 1989.
He died in June 2013 from B-cell lymphoma complications.
