Randy Steven Kraft, Orange County’s most prolific serial killer, may have killed as many as 65 young men in Oregon, Michigan and California during a 13-year span that ended in 1983.
He was sentenced to die in 1989 after a trial that lasted nearly a year, but he is still on death row, appealing his convictions.
He was a meek looking computer programmer with a high IQ and a quiet suburban lifestyle who was convicted of killing 16 men.
His killing spree came to an end when he was caught with a dead Marine in his Toyota sedan on May 14, 1983.
A “score card” of Kraft’s kills was found in the trunk of his car. It had 65 names on it.
