A Phantom Unmasked

Those of us that grew up in the Sacramento area during the 1970s remember the fear.  A masked intruder was terrorizing the area – invading homes and assaulting the occupants.  His reign of terror in Sacramento ended when he was spotted by a couple walking their dog.  He brutally murdered them.  After that tragic incident, he committed several more crimes in other areas of Northern California before making the move to Southern California.  In the south part of the state, his home invasion and assault pattern escalated to include murdering the victims.  For decades his identity was unknown; he remained a phantom.  We could never have imagined that all that time, the man that caused so much terror lived and worked right here within our community.
