Who could resist a man with the nickname “The Night Stalker”? Serial killer Richard Ramirez was convicted of 13 counts of murder and 11 counts of sexual assault and was sentenced to death. Still, there was something about him Doreen Lioy couldn’t resist. Lioy said of Ramirez, “He’s kind, he’s funny, he’s charming.” She also stated that she would commit suicide when Ramirez was executed. A real modern day Romeo and Juliet. The two were married in 1996 after nearly a decade of knowing each other. Sadly, true love didn’t last forever. Their 17 year marriage came to end in 2013, just months before Ramirez died. Could it have been from a broken heart? No, it was complications due to B-cell lymphoma.
