Serial Killer Finishes Aiding Investigators

November 27, 2003|From Times Wire Reports

Serial killer Gary Leon Ridgway, who pleaded guilty to 48 counts of murder, has finished leading investigators to sites where he left his victims and will be formally sentenced Dec. 18 to life in prison without parole, authorities said.

Ridgway's plea Nov. 5 in a two-decade killing spree that targeted runaways and prostitutes put more murders on his record than that of any serial killer in U.S. history. Prosecutors agreed not to seek the death penalty in exchange for Ridgway's cooperation on some of the unsolved Green River killings.
