The Facts

Between October 1977 and January 1978, Bianchi and Buono went on a spree of kidnappings, rapes and murders that took the lives of 15 people.  Posing as policemen, the pair began with prostitutes and then began to target more middle class women, leaving their bodies on the hillside of Glendale-Highland Park in Los Angeles.  They were caught in October 1979 and sentenced to life in prison with no possibility of parole in 1983 after one of the longest trials in history.

Copycat Killing

In 1980 Bianchi began a relationship with Veronica Compton.  At his instigation she attempted to commit a copycat murder to exonerate Bianchi.  This failed and she was imprisoned for attempted murder.
