Murder is very practical, really. It doesn't take too much time or effort once you're used to it. You don't have to wait for the paycheck; you take it. You don't have to look for pleasure; you take it. The people who populate these pages have found all the shadows in the sun-drenched state of California. They have leaped from nameless victim to nameless victim. Each killer's only challenge was finding a spot to hide the leftover bones. Grisly, browned bones sometimes covered with muscles that looked like meat jerky occasionally turned up in backyards, discarded moldy rugs, or grime-smudged garbage bins. But as long as their victims had wallets and IDs, killers could make a living if they chose to. Of course, if one had a cause to fight for, more planning might be involved... not too elaborate... not too memorable... just efficient. This book covers famous and not-so-famous murderers, but the deaths they dealt to their victims were just as deadly, gruesome, and fatal. It didn't matter to these soulless murderers whether death came to their anguished victims by knife, gun, bayonet, or bare hands. What Amazon readers are saying: ★★★★★ "Get the book, you'll love it!" ★★★★★ "Though the book is short, you will get your chills as you read each chapter." ★★★★★ "The cases are told in a way that states facts without putting you to sleep. I rather enjoyed it!" ★★★★★ "The chapters were surprisingly in-depth for the length they were." Read on and discover the stories behind the lingering silent sounds of those who no longer walk above ground in California--a state meant for its beauty, beaches, and bright sun.

“Murder in California” profiles some of California’s most infamous serial killers and unsolved murder cases. The edition more photographically transports you to several of the murder sites where the homicides occurred and/or images related to the case and perpetrator(s). The images and profiles offer a descriptive account, detailed location, and trial aftermath providing an important understanding into the further reaching effects of each crime. Convicted killers and their confirmed victims are identified. For criminals still living, their current incarceration location is provided. The captured snapshots portray visual testimonies of extinguished lives removed by acts of violence. Crime scenes often revert back into unremarkable landscape or unassuming buildings over the ensuing years and decades. Several have altered little since their moment of infamy. Many are passed daily by pedestrian and vehicular traffic unaware of a location’s unique significance. California has been the site for many notorious serial killers. The following are portrayed in this edition: The Zodiac: The Taunting Killer Charles Manson: Removing the Myths Behind an Iconic Serial Killer Dorothea Puente: Arsenic and Old Lace: Killing for Profit Efren Saldivar’s Definition of Assisted Medical Homicide Ted Kaczynski (Unabomber): To Arms Against A Faceless Society and Enemy The Zebra Killings: A Racially Intended Genocide? The Heaven’s Gate Cult Shutters Operations Abruptly and Permanently Edmund Kemper III: Constructing the Perfect Frankenstein Lawrence Bittaker and Roy Norris: Pitch Darkened Hearts Juan Corona: The Macabre Massacre of the Invisible Richard Trenton Chase: The Consummation of Darkness The Boneyards of the Dead Speak: The Speed Freak Killers Herbert Mullin: The Blood Sacrifices of Earthquake Preventiveness David Carpenter: The Devil Behind Bifocals and a Stutter Jim Jones and the Peoples Temple Massacre: No Way Home The Hillside Strangler Duo: Killing Cousins Rodney Alcala: A Beastly Killing Machine Slaying Beauty Richard Ramirez: The Devil’s Ambassador Golden State Killer: The Triumph of Forensic Evidence The section on famous unsolved murders include: The Santa Rosa Hitchhiking Murders: Preying on the Innocent David Nadel: The Death of a Man and Rebirth of a Performance Icon The Continued Fascination With the Black Dahlia Murder Roscoe Fatty Arbuckle: Ten-Minute Disputed Sex Scandal Was a 1963 Beachfront Slaying of a High School Couple a Prelude to Future Terror? Geneva Ellroy: The Transference of Tragedy Into Literary Expression Kym Morgan: Death By Classified Advertisement Kevin Collins: A Solitary Bus Bench Memorial to Every Parent’s Nightmare Ted Healy: The Suspected Homicide of the Fourth Stooge The Resolute Will To Keep William Desmond Taylor’s Murder Unsolved Ramona Irene Price Strolls Innocently Into A Vanished Past Raymond Washington: A Cycle of Senseless Violence Devours A Former Founder Author Marques Vickers’ own introduction into the expansive consequences of murder began with the 1968 killings of David Faraday and Betty Lou Jenson by the Zodiac killer in the author’s hometown. Faraday was an acquaintance of the author and his older sister knew both victims. His reflections on the trauma inflicted on his intimate suburban community correspond with the realization that a single homicide affects far more individuals than simply the victim. Hundreds and often thousands may be touched by the arbitrariness and unfairness of life being terminated abruptly and prematurely.

"Meticulously researched and tightly woven, The Devil's Harvest is an important story because it tells us that if [this] can happen in one place, then it can happen in any place. And that's damn scary."--Michael Connelly, New York Times bestselling author of The Closers, The Lincoln Lawyer, and The Night Fire A page-turning, suspenseful story of a drug cartel hit man who got away with murder after murder in California's Central Valley for three decades, The Devil's Harvest reveals how the criminal justice system fails our most vulnerable immigrant communities On the surface, fifty-eight-year-old Jose Martinez didn't seem evil or even that remarkable--just a regular neighbor, good with cars and devoted to his family. But in between taking his children to Disneyland and visiting his mom, Martinez was also one of the most skilled professional killers police had ever seen. He tracked one victim to one of the wealthiest corners of America, a horse ranch in Santa Barbara, and shot him dead in the morning sunlight, setting off a decades-long manhunt. He shot another man, a farmworker, right in front of his young wife as they drove to work in the fields. The widow would wait decades for justice. Those were murders for hire. Others he killed for vengeance. How did Martinez manage to evade law enforcement for so long with little more than a slap on the wrist? Because he understood a dark truth about the criminal justice system: if you kill the "right people"--people who are poor, who aren't white, and who don't have anyone to speak up for them--you can get away with it. Melding the pacing and suspense of a true crime thriller with the rigor of top-notch investigative journalism, The Devil's Harvest follows award-winning reporter Jessica Garrison's relentless search for the truth as she traces the life of this assassin, the cops who were always a few steps behind him, and the families of his many victims. Drawing upon decades of case files, interrogation transcripts, on-the-ground reporting, and Martinez's chilling handwritten journals, The Devil's Harvest uses a gripping and often shocking narrative to dig into one of the most important moral questions haunting our politically divided nation today: Why do some deaths--and some lives--matter more than others?!--~b~-- span

A priest, a homeless man, small children, a drug dealer and a witness....these are just some of the supposedly random victims of Herbert Mullin. In just four short months, he managed to kill 13 people, using a range of weapons and reasons. But were they all random victims, simply in the wrong place at the wrong time, or was there a much more sinister plan behind them all? Of all the American serial killers, Herbert Mullin is perhaps the most bizarre. His killing spree spanned 13 victims, and his battles with mental illness and addiction were well publicised throughout his trial. But was he really mentally ill? Can a psychopath be so clever he can fake it? Whatever the truth, his murders left a permanent mark in, California history. Santa Cruz became known as the California murder capital of the world, partly due to Herbert Mullin. When you think of true crime California, you are reminded of the likes of Edmund Kemper III, John Linley Frazier and Herbert Mullin, all of whom committed their bloody rampages across California at the same time. Mullin's beliefs that killing innocent people would prevent a major earthquake from occurring was indicative that not all was well inside his brain. Was Herbert a very intelligent and scheming man whose plan all along was to kill to hide an act of revenge? The answers may lie inside the pages of this book. You will have to read through and make that decision for yourself.

American serial killer Edmund Kemper III stalked co-eds in California at the height of the era of peace and free love, dismembering his victims and tossing their body parts in remote areas around Santa Cruz. As pieces of young women began washing up on shore and turning up alongside rural highways, female residents - especially college students - were decidedly on edge. A lust killer who savored the act of decapitating his victims - and often used their severed heads for sexual pleasure - Kemper's story is particularly twisted among historical serial killers. Still, the true crime tale of Edmund Kemper is particularly fascinating, because the man many people called "a gentle giant" was a near genius whose cunning manipulation of others made him particularly depraved and dangerous. This true crime story, a detailed biography of one of the most psychopathic serial killers of our time, shares some insight into the troubled childhood and awkward nature that led the American serial killer to take 10 lives, including those of six pretty co-eds, his paternal grandparents, his calculatingly cruel mother and his mother's best friend. Among historical serial killers, Kemper is especially depraved, since he included necrophilia and cannibalism in his gruesome mix of sordid criminal activity. Ultimately, Kemper's murderous inclinations and urges to kill were satisfied after he bludgeoned to death his mother, a woman he'd hated since he was eight years old, and he turned himself in. But if he hadn't finally acted on his long-held fantasy to end his mother's life, he might still be trolling California highways, getting away with murder.
