Description

Between October of 1977 and February of 1978, a serial killer terrorized women in Southern California. Originally preying upon sex workers in Los Angeles, this offender began to target young women irregardless of race or background, before simply vanishing for good. It wasn't until a year later that police were able to link a separate crime to this spree, and from there, began to track down the culprit... or, in this case, culprits...

I appreciate the sentiment about the memory of the victims but I think a bit more could have been more info and pictures of the victims. rather than just a collage

If you guys enjoy these podcasts as much as me, I highly recommend the book/biography "The Serial Killer Whisperer", about a guy who is able to relate with serial killers and becomes a pen pal with many of them, including the Hillside Stranglers. It includes excerpts (quite gruesome so if you're squeamish, I wouldn't recommend) from the killers and is fascinating! It's horrible to read what the killers write, but also allows a small glimpse of what's going on in their mind.

Shouldn't it be "stranglers"? Bianchi is from Rochester where I live. He was the bouncer at a club I worked at.

Steve Dronzewski I think...or hope, it’s due to the fact that the police back then didn’t suspect two people until later on. Even states the media called the perp the hillside “strangler”
