16. Killer Next Door: William Lester Suff

A man searching for cans thinks he sees a mannequin. As the man got closer, he could see it was not a mannequin but the body of a young woman. There were few clues but sadly it wouldn’t be long before this California killer would again come calling. And again. And again and many more times.

This is the story of a man who lived a seemingly normal life right alongside the officers who were desperately looking for a madman. Little did they realize he was right in front of them. Please join us as we discuss the ‘Riverside Killer’ also known as the ‘Lake Elsinore Killer’ William Suff.
