Serial Killer - Randy Kraft - The Scorecard Killer
Randolph Steven "Randy" Kraft (born March 19, 1945) is an American serial killer known as the "Scorecard Killer" and the "Freeway Killer" who committed the rape, torture, mutilation and murder of a minimum of 16 young men in a series of killings spanning between 1972 and 1983, the majority of which had been committed in California. Kraft is also believed to have committed the rape and murder of up to 51 further boys and young men. He was convicted in May 1989 of murdering 16 victims and is currently incarcerated upon death row at San Quentin State Prison in Marin County, California. Kraft became known as the "Scorecard Killer" because upon his arrest, investigators discovered a coded list depicting cryptic references to his victims, and the "Freeway Killer" because many of his victims' bodies were discovered beside or close to freeways.
