Night Stalker is a documentary series which is based on Richard Ramirez. Numerous names had been given to Richard Ramirez. He was known as Richie by his family. He was dubbed the Walk-In Killer by Los Angeles’ KNBC. To some, he was known as the Valley Intruder, but Ramirez personally and the national media took to calling him the Night Stalker. He initially murdered a person at the age of 24, according to the investigators.
It has been 37 years since Ramirez committed his first crime, or to be precise the first murder for which he was found guilty. In a string of totally arbitrary crimes that horrified Southern Californians in the summer of 1985, he could have murdered at least 13 other individuals and engaged in at least 11 sexual offences before turning 26. His offences were judged to be so heinous and cold-blooded that he received a staggering 19 death sentences. On June 7, 2013, he passed away in jail while anticipating death.

Night Stalker Season 2 Storyline
The story of the series is about Richard Ramirez and it is based on the events he committed against society. An American serial killer by the name of Richard Ramirez was branded the “Night Stalker.” Ramirez killed more than a dozen people and tortured and murdered over 25 individuals over the course of more than 2 years. The majority of these people have been murdered in the California homes of the deceased. Ramirez’s involvement in the death of his cousin’s wife would be his first serious felony.
Ramirez was there at the incident site but did nothing to stop Mike from killing his beloved wife even though he was the person who actually committed the murder. For a string of minor offences, Ramirez was detained as a teenager in 1977. In 1982, he was also placed on probation for possession of marijuana. After committing these first two offences, Ramirez relocated to California where he proceeded to do so while being arrested for property crimes, possession of a controlled substance, and robbery.
Ramirez perpetrated his initial homicide on June 28, 1984. Inside her own house, the 79-year-old woman was brutally raped, slashed, and killed. Ramirez had killed nearly a dozen individuals and tormented 25 others in only one year. Richard Ramirez, age 29, was finally convicted of 13 killings, five attempts of murders, 11 sexual attacks, and 14 robberies in 1989 after a protracted legal process. Ramirez received death by gas chamber conviction in California.
Big deal, he said in response to this. Mortality was always a part of life. We’ll meet up at Disneyland. Ramirez passed away on June 7, 2013, at the age of 53, from B-cell lymphoma, 24 years after receiving this punishment and more than 23 years after being placed on death row. Season 2 is also expected to have more insight into the true events that occurred to the other victims of murders or other crimes.
