Serial Killers: Gerald Parker

Born: 1955 

Number of victims: 6    

Date of murders: 1978 - 1979

Method of murder: Bludgeoning   

Location: Orange County, California

Known as the "Bedroom Basher," Gerald Parker was a vicious sex slayer who murdered five women in the late 70’s while serving in the US Marines at the El Toro Air Station in California. And Parker might well have gotten away with it but for advances in DNA technology that eventually brought him to book and freed an innocent man. 

Dianna D'Aiello was 21 years old and heavily pregnant with her first child on the day in 1979 that Parker entered her home and attacked her. D'Aiello was so severely beaten that she lost her baby and remained comatose for a month after the attack. When she eventually regained consciousness she named her husband, Marine Corporal Kevin Lee Green, as the attacker. Green was duly arrested for the assault on his wife and the murder of his unborn child. Found guilty at trial, he was sentenced to life in prison and would remain behind bars for 16 years before semen from the crime scene was subjected to DNA testing. It returned a match to Gerald Parker, who was then serving time for the rape of a 13-year-old girl.

With the DNA match established, investigators traveled to Avenal State Prison to interview Parker. They expected denials, but Parker seemed almost relieved to unburden himself. He readily confessed to the attack on Dianna D'Aiello. Then her stunned the detectives by admitting to five more homicides; 17-year-old Sandra Kay Fry of Costa Mesa in 1978; Kimberly Gaye Rawlins, 21, of Costa Mesa; Marilyn Kay Carleton, 31, of Costa Mesa; Debora Kennedy, 24, of Tustin; and Debra Lynn Senior, 17, of Costa Mesa. The latter four victims were all killed in 1979.

Gerald Parker would eventually be convicted of these murders and sentenced to die by lethal injection. He currently awaits execution.

Serial Killers: Lorenzo Fayne

Born: 1965

Number of victims: 6   

Date of murders: 1989 - 1993

Method of murder: Bludgeoning / Stabbing / Strangulation  

Location: Wisconsin / Illinois 

Lorenzo Fayne was born in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, in 1970. As a child, he suffered horrendous physical abuse at the hands of his parents and, by age 13, he was already a seasoned criminal with arrests for shoplifting, assault, indecent exposure, housebreaking, and car theft.

When Fayne was 18, he began drifting between Milwaukee and East St. Louis, Illinois, where his grandmother lived. That same year, he also committed his first murder, sexually assaulting and then killing 6-year-old Aree Hunt. Over the next three years, he would claim five more victims, four of them children.

Latondra Dean, 14, was discovered stabbed to death in a bathtub in March 1992. Three months later, 9-year-old Fallon Flood was found inside an abandoned locker room at East St. Louis Senior High School. She had been strangled to death. The severely decomposed body of Glenda Jones, 17, was found behind Martin Luther King Junior High in June 1993. And in  July 1994, 17-year-old Faith Davis was found stabbed to death at a friend’s house. 

The Davis murder would prove Fayne’s undoing. After a detective spotted a trail of blood leading away from the crime scene, a K-9 unit was brought in and the dogs followed the trail right to the home of Lorenzo Fayne’s grandmother.

Fayne was tried separately for each murder. In the Aree Hunt case, he received a life sentence. In each of the other cases, he was sentenced to death. He has since been linked by DNA evidence to the murder of 32-year-old Rita Scott.

Serial Killers: Wesley Shermantine & Loren Herzog

Number of victims:  4+   

Date of murders: 1984 - 1999

Method of murder: Shooting / Stabbing   

Location: California / Utah

Known as the ‘Speed Freak Killers,’ due to their love of methamphetamines, Herzog and Shermantine were a lethal pair of psychopaths who prowled the highways and byways of Northern California for over 15 years, committing random murders whenever the felt so inclined. California investigators believe that they may have killed as many as 20 people, disposing of their bodies in mineshafts and remote countryside around the town of Stockton.

Many of the murders were committed without apparent motive. The deadly duo would be driving around and would spot a stranded motorist and decide on the spur of the moment to kill them. Others, however, were rape slayings. It would be one of these, the 1985 murder of 16-year-old Chevelle Yvonne Wheeler, that would bring the killers to justice.

Chevelle (or Chevy, as she was known) disappeared after she was seen getting into a red pickup outside her high school on October 16, 1985. Shermantine owned just such a truck and he was immediately as suspect, especially after hair and blood was discovered inside a cabin owned by his parents. However, he denied any involvement in the disappearance and the police lacked the evidence to charge him.

Fifteen years on and DNA technology had advanced enough for police to match the evidence to Chevy Wheeler. Brought in for questioning, Shermantine continued to deny his involvement, while Herzog quickly cracked under pressure and admitted to several murders. He insisted, however, that Shermantine had done the killing and that he had only been along for the ride.

Shermantine would eventually be charged with four murders and sentenced to death. Herzog would face three charges, resulting in a prison term of 78 years. The sentenced was later reduced on appeal and he was released on parole in September 2010. Shortly after his release, he hung himself in his trailer.

After Herzog’s death, Wesley Shermantine led police to the bodies of Chevy Wheeler and another female victim, Cyndi Vanderheiden. He insisted, however, that Herzog had committed the murders.

Serial Killers: Martin Dumolland

Born: 1810 

Number of victims:  6+   

Date of murders: 1855 - 1861

Method of murder: Strangulation   

Location: France  

One of the earliest documented serial killers in the modern record, Martin Dumollard’s murderous activities preceded those of Jack the Ripper by three decades. But Dumollard was the polar opposite of ‘Saucy Jack,’ a lumbering country bumpkin who lured French servant girls to Montluel, a small town about twelve miles from Lyon. There he strangled them and robbed them of their meager possession, reportedly also drinking their blood. 

Dumollard’s murderous activities first came to the attention of the authorities in February 1855, when hunters discovered the naked corpse of a young woman in the woods near Montaverne in northeastern France. She was later identified as Marie Baday, a local servant girl. An inquiry was launched but the effort was cursory at best. The death of a peasant did not warrant much attention in those days. 

Over the next six years, the police recorded the disappearances of several young women from the same area. However, there was no clue as to the identity of the killer until the night of May 26, 1861, when an intended victim escaped Dumollard’s clutches. The woman, named Marie Pichon, reported the incident the next day and police inquiries led to the door of Martin and Marie Dumollard.

Under interrogation, Dumollard provided incoherent answers and denied any wrongdoing. His wife, however, was more forthcoming, leading the police to several makeshift gravesites in the woods. A search of the Dumollard homestead also turned up a wealth of incriminating evidence, including bloodstained items of clothing.

Martin Dumollard went on trial at the assizes of Ain, on January 29, 1862, charged with six counts of murder. Found guilty, he was sentenced to death, that sentence carried out by guillotine before a crowd of thousands on March 8, 1862. His wife Marie was convicted as an accomplice and sentenced to 20 years at hard labor.

Serial Killers: Paul Dennis Reid

Born: November 12, 1957

Number of victims: 7

Date of murders: February - April 1997

Method of murder: Shooting / Stabbing  


Paul Dennis Reid had come Nashville with dreams of a country music career. But like so many hopefuls before him those dreams had come to nothing. Before long he found himself working as a dishwasher at a Shoney's restaurant in Donelson. Still, at least it was a job. On February 15, 1997, he lost even that. In a fit of temper, he threw a plate at another employee and was fired. Seething, Reid went home and spent the night drinking and plotting his revenge. Eventually, he’d decided what to do. 

The following morning, Reid showed up at a Captain D's restaurant. It was still closed but Reid was allowed in by employee Steve Hampton after he said that he was there to apply for a job. Once inside, he took Hampton and another employee, 16-year-old Sarah Jackson, hostage. He then robbed the restaurant before taking Hampton and Jackson to the cooler, where he shot them execution-style.

Over the next two months, the city of Nashville was plagued by an assassin dubbed “The Fast Food Killer” in the media. On March 23, 1997, McDonald's employees, Ronald Santiago, 27, Robert A. Sewell Jr., 23, and Andrea Brown, 17, were shot to death by a man who entered the restaurant just before closing time and took them hostage. Another employee, 17-year-old Jose Alfredo Ramirez Gonzalez was stabbed 17 times but survived to identify Reid as his attacker.

A month later, Angela Holmes, 21, and Michelle Mace, 16, were kidnapped during a robbery at a Baskin-Robbins ice cream store in Clarksville, about 50 miles northwest of Nashville. The women were driven to Dunbar Cave State Natural Area where Reid slashed their throats and dumped their bodies.

But the net was fast closing on Paul Dennis Reid. Jose Gonzalez had provided a description to police and they also had a fingerprint, lifted from a movie rental card that was in found in Steve Hampton's wallet, which Reid had carelessly discarded along a road. 

On June 25, 1997, Reid went to the home of the Shoney's manager who fired him and tried to force his way in. Unsuccessful, he eventually left, not knowing that his intended victim had videotaped the entire incident. The tape was released to the media and Reid was arrested later that same day. 

Tried and found guilty of the ‘Fast Food Murders,’ Reid received three death sentences. He currently awaits execution.

Serial Killers: Linwood and James Briley

Number of victims: 12   

Date of murders: 1979 

Method of murder: Shooting / Stabbing / Bludgeoning     

Location: Richmond, Virginia

A pair of deadly siblings, Linwood and James "J.B." Briley, (together with younger brother Anthony Briley and another young accomplice, Duncan Meekins) were responsible for the worst killing spree in Richmond, Virginia’s history.

Growing up in a stable home, the brothers showed the first inkling of the carnage to come in 1971, when 16-year-old Linwood shot and killed an elderly neighbor. That saw him sent to reform school where he was soon joined by J.B., arrested for firing a gun at a police officer. 

The spree that would catapult the Brileys to infamy began several years later, on March 12, 1979, when the Brileys robbed and assaulted William and Virginia Bucher in their home. They then tied the couple up and set the house on fire before fleeing. Fortunately, the Buchers managed to escape.

But that was just the beginning. On March 21, Michael McDuffie, was robbed and killed in his home. On April 9, 76-year-old Mary Gowen was raped, robbed, and shot. On July 4, 17-year-old Christopher Philips was beaten to death after the gang accused him of trying to steal Linwood’s car. On September 14, popular local musician John "Johnny G." Gallaher was abducted from a nightclub, driven to the James River and shot in the head. 

And still the carnage continued. On September 30, 62-year-old Mary Wilfong was gang raped and murdered. Five days later, on October 5, 79-year-old Blanche Page and her 59-year-old boarder, Charles Garner, were stabbed and beaten to death. On October 19, Harvey Wilkerson, his pregnant wife and five-year-old son, were murdered in their home. Wilkerson had been an acquaintance of the Brileys. 

Arrested soon after, the Brileys gave nothing up to the police. However, their accomplice Duncan Meekins struck a deal with prosecutors and agreed to testify against them. It led to multiple convictions and the death penalty for both Linwood and J.B.

Linwood Briley was put to death in Virginia's electric chair on October 12, 1984. James Briley was executed by the same method on April 18 of the following year.
