Hillside Stranglers - Serial killers

Angelo Buono Jr., whose gruesome killing of young Los Angeles women in the 1970s earned him the nickname "Hillside Strangler," died Saturday in his prison cell, corrections officials said.

Angelo Buono, 67, was found dead in his cell at Calipatria State Prison in Imperial County, said Bob Martinez, a spokesman for the state Department of Corrections.

The cause of death was not immediately known but Martinez said Buono suffered from heart problems. Buono was alone in his own cell when he died.

In November 1983, Buono was sentenced to life in prison without the possibility of parole after being convicted of killing nine young women and dumping their nude bodies on Los Angeles-area hillsides, earning him the nickname "Hillside Strangler."

His adoptive cousin, Kenneth Bianchi, pleaded guilty to five of the murders and testified against Buono. Bianchi is serving his prison sentence in Washington state, where he killed two other women.

The two were accused of kidnapping, raping, torturing and killing the women, ranging in age from 12 to 28, during a four-month period in 1977 and 1978.

Hillside Strangler Bio

The most disturbing murderers kill for only one reason - their own enjoyment. This program examines the murderess who perpetrate terrible crimes against women, and are satisfied by hurting and killing their random and often unknown victims.

In the summer that followed the end of WWII, an ex-serviceman brutally murdered 2 British women. The killings were remarkable in their level of violence and ferocity. The police arrested Neville Heath, a fraudster who had been court-martialed during the war who later posed as a war hero. He was found guilty and sentenced to death, but he showed no signs of remorse for his terrible crimes and calmly mounted the gallows steps only after drinking a double whiskey.

In America in the 1970's another serial killer was on the loose, preying on young and vulnerable women, whose bodies were found in the hills surrounding Los Angeles. They had been raped and strangled. Nicknamed "The Hillside Strangler", the murderer killed 12 young women over 4 months. Finally the police were led to Kenneth Bianchi, a security guard, who quickly implicated his cousin, Angelo Buono. Working together these men had enjoyed their reign of terror, but after the longest trial in American legal history Bianchi and Buono were finally behind bars, sentenced to life imprisonment.
