The Hollywood Ripper
Between 1993 and 2008, a series of brutal attacks would take place on 4 different women, seemingly completely unrelated. DNA would be found on one victim, but wasn't enough to press charges against the match. No direct evidence would be found in the next 2 cases, but the final attack would result in DNA, which matched the first case. Who was the match? Michael Gargiulo, who would be dubbed by the media-- The Hollywood Ripper. But with the lack of direct evidence, would a pattern be enough to secure a conviction?
