Cary Stayner, is a serial killer who preyed on visitors to Yosemite National Park, was the product of a uniquely tragic background. In 1972, Stayner's brother, Steven (then 7-years-old), was abducted by child molester Kenneth Parnell. After seven years, Steven managed to escape captivity and re-unite with his family before tragically dying in a motorcycle accident at age 24. Cary would later cite these traumatic childhood events as playing a role in his development as a murderer. In February of 1999, Stayner killed 42-year-old Carol Sund along with her 15-year-old daughter Juli and her 16-year-old friend Silvina Pelosso. The three were brutally assaulted and murdered in their hotel room near Yosemite (Stayner had worked as a handyman at the facility). Five months later, Stayner beheaded a tour guide at the park, and eyewitnesses led authorities to his capture. He was convicted of first-degree murder in 2001 and sentenced to death. Show Less

Between 1982 and 1986 a series of rapes and murders in and around London had women living in fear. Two men, John Duffy and David Mulcahy, were targeting their victims at railway stations. The pair had grown up together as best friends and taken a sacred oath to never turn against each other. When Duffy was finally apprehended in 1986 he refused to give up the name of his partner in crime - it would be 15 years before he admitted to investigators that David Mulcahy was jointly responsible for the death of three women - the youngest was a 15 year old girl. Duffy stunned prosecutors when he promised to testify against his best friend at an explosive trial at the Old Bailey in 2000. Show Less
