The sickening crimes of Richard Ramirez are the subject of new Netflix true crime docu-series Night Stalker: The Hunt For a Serial Killer.
In the four-part series, viewers learn about the investigation which would lead to the capture of the man who broke into homes and raped and murdered his victims.
In the series, viewers also learned that after Ramirez had finished with his victims, the vile killer would often make himself a snack.
Detective Frank Salerno explained: “The interesting thing is how comfortable he got after killing somebody — he would take the time to have a snack.
“That’s a pretty sick individual.”
In the documentary, viewers can see an open can of Mountain Dew, a fruit bowl and a banana skin at the crime scene where he attacked sisters Mabel "Ma" Bell and Florence "Nettie" Lang.
This was the first crime scene where a satanic symbol was written on the wall and on one of the victim’s legs in lipstick.
The victims of Ramirez ranged in age from six to 82, and there was no consistent target of gender, age, race or class.
Sometimes he would leave Satanic messages, other times he would pause to eat a piece of fruit from the fridge.
