THE GREEN RIVER KILLER WHO DID WHY WHEN WHAT DO OTHER PEOPLE THINK?
Gary Leon Ridgway (born February 18, 1949) is an American serial killer known as the Green River Killer. initially convicted of 48 separate murders and confessed to nearly double that number. As part of his plea bargain, an additional conviction has been added, bringing the total of convictions to 49. He murdered numerous women and girls, most of whom were also alleged prostitutes, in Washington during the 1980s and 1990s, given this nickname when the first five victims were found in the Green River and his identity was not known. He strangled them, usually with his arm but sometimes using ligatures. After strangling the women, he would dump their bodies throughout forested and overgrown areas in King County, often returning to the dead bodies to have sexual intercourse with them.On November 30, 2001, as he was leaving the Renton, Washington Kenworth Truck factory where he worked, he was arrested for the murders of four women whose cases were linked to him through DNA evidence. As part of a plea bargain wherein he agreed to disclose the whereabouts of still-missing women, he was spared the death penalty and received a sentence of life imprisonment without parole.
why? Ridgway was born in Salt Lake City, Utah, He has two brother,Gregory Leon and Thomas Edward. his mother is bad, Ridgway's homelife was somewhat troubled; relatives have described his mother as domineering and have said that young Ridgway witnessed more than one violent argument between his parents. As a boy, Ridgway had a habit of wetting the bed. His mother would often be the one to discover the accidents and would bathe him immediately. She would also belittle and embarrass him in front of his family. From a young age, Ridgway had conflicting feelings of sexual attraction and anger toward her. As a young child, Ridgway was tested with an I.Q. of 82, signifying low intelligence, and his academic performance in school was so poor that at one point in high school he had to repeat a year in order to pass. His classmates at Tyee High School describe him as congenial but largely forgettable. His teenage years, however, were troubled; when he was 16, he stabbed a six-year-old boy, who survived the attack. He had led the boy into the woods and then stabbed him through the ribs into his liver. According to the victim and Ridgway himself, Ridgway walked away laughing and saying, "I always wondered what it would be like to kill someone."
