THS Investigates Tackles the Unsolved Mystery of the Most Prolific Serial Offender in California History One-Hour Special Features Exclusive New Interviews with Original Investigators, Victims’ Families and a Survivor

– Plus Never-Before Released Details on the Chilling Case

Los Angeles, CA , May 4, 2009 – In the ‘80s, Richard Ramirez, a.k.a. “The Night Stalker,” caused widespread panic in Los Angeles. However before Ramirez, there was another killer who terrorized the state. Between 1976 and 1986, a string of 50 rapes in Northern California and at least 10 murders in Southern California baffled law enforcement. It wasn’t until DNA testing that authorities revealed the crimes were the work of one man, a violent killer dubbed “The Original Night Stalker.”

To this day, it is not known if the predator is alive or dead. True Hollywood Story Investigates talks to law enforcement, victims’ families and a survivor to unravel the mystery of one of the most horrifying serial killers of all time.

“THS Investigates: The Original Night Stalker” premieres Wednesday, May 6 at 10pm ET/PT on E!

Featured in this special are in-depth interviews with some of the original investigators, including retired Contra Costa County detective, Larry Crompton, and Orange Country cold case investigator, Larry Pool, who discovered the DNA connection between the rapes and murders. One “Night Stalker” victim takes viewers moment by moment through her terrifying ordeal, and other victims’ family members discuss the impact this sadistic killer has had on their lives and their hope that one day he will still be caught.

Finally, THSi features never-before-aired audio of the killer’s voice and brand new evidence about the case, such as detailed composite sketches of the killer and a cryptic, never-before released poem he sent to police.
