Rage and Revenge Murders in California profiles some of state’s most infamous murder cases. The edition photographically transports you to actual murder sites along with images related to the case and perpetrator(s).

The images and accompanying profiles offer a descriptive account and follow-up aftermath providing an important understanding into the far-reaching effects of each crime. Convicted killers and their confirmed victims are identified. For criminals still living, their current incarceration location is provided. A directory of precise crime site locations is included.

The captured snapshots portray visual testimonies of extinguished lives removed by acts of violence. Crime scenes often revert back into unremarkable landscape or unassuming buildings over the ensuing years and decades. Several have altered little since their moment of infamy. Many are passed daily by pedestrian and vehicular traffic unaware of a location’s unique significance.

California has been the site for many notorious homicides. The following are portrayed in this edition:

Artie and Jim Mitchell: Contemporary Cain and Abel
Playboy playmate Dorothy Stratten’s killing and perpetrator suicide
Ewell Family Killings: Delayed gratification thwarts a near perfect killing
John Morency: As the adulation ceased, the poisoning was administered
