Police discovered Kraft kept a cryptic coded "scorecard" of 61 of his victims. However, one
of his possible accomplices (police believe there may have been several) is reported to have said
the list contained only the "more memorable" murders and the true total was more like 100. Victims: 16 confirmed, suspected of 51 - 100. Sentence: Sentenced to death... currently on Death Row in San Quentin jail.
Unbelievably, there were 2 other "Freeway Killers" around about this time:
1. Patrick Kearney killed 35+ young men on Californian freeways from
1965-1977... was given 21 life sentences.
2. William Bonin also killed up to 36 young men and boys (often hitch-hiking
Californian freeways) from 1979-1980. Apart from the usual torture, mutilation, etc, his favorite
trick was an ice-pick in the ear... Bonin was executed in 1996 by lethal injection.

Where: Carolina, U.S.A. When: 1953 - 1982. How: This 5' 4" killer made up for his lack of height with violence to
earn the title of "The Meanest Man in America".

highways confessing to "eighty to ninety Coastal Kills".
Other "Serious Murders" were executions carried out for personal reasons, usually by shooting.

(like his 15 year old niece and her 17 year old girlfriend that he'd tried to sexually assault), or
victims he was hired as a "hit-man" to kill.

dismembered and placed into a vat of acid. Iqbal kept a diary of the murders, with victims names and
ages, as well as bundles of shoes and clothing, and photographs of the victims. Victims: Confessed to 100. Sentence: Iqbal was initially sentenced to "be strangled in front of the parents whose
children you killed. your body will be cut into 100 pieces and put in acid, the same way you killed
This sentence was quickly declared by the Council of Islamic Ideology to contravene Islamic teaching.
