The case of the Hillside Strangler confounded California police in the in the late 1970s. At least 10 women and girls were raped and murdered in the Hollywood Hills — and the entire city was on edge.

Kenneth Bianchi and Angelo Buono were apprehended in 1979 and later convicted of kidnapping, raping, torturing and murdering ten females ranging from 12 to 28 years old.  They were sentenced to life in prison.  Buono died in jail in 2002 at age 67. Bianchi, 65, is serving his sentence in Walla Walla, Washington.

The case drew international headlines and sparked several films, including a 2004 movie starring Nicholas Turturro and C. Thomas Howell.

Jailed for Shooting Her Ex-Husband and His New Wife, Betty Broderick Speaks Out: ‘I Am a Political Prisoner’

It’s a tale as old as time: a rich, successful man divorces his fortysomething wife, only to replace her with a younger lookalike.

That’s what happened to Betty Broderick. After 17 years of marriage and four children, her husband, Dan, told her that he wanted a divorce. He then married his 20something secretary, Linda.

The split sent Broderick into a tailspin. On November 5, 1989, she snuck into her ex-husband’s home carrying a Smith Wesson revolver. Finding him and his new wife, Linda, in bed, she opened fire. Two bullets hit Linda in the head and chest, killing her instantly; one bullet hit Dan in the chest. He died shortly afterward. Dan was 44; Linda was 28.

Betty Broderick was 41 when she shot her husband. She never denied the killing, but said she had been driven over the edge by years of physical and psychological abuse at the hands of her ex-husband.  She was convicted
