6. East Area Rapist/Original Night Stalker
“Have you heard of the EAR/ONS (East Area Rapist/Original Night Stalker)? The most prolific offender possibly in history. During the mid 70s-80s, he raped at least 50 times, in California, doing fucked up shit like breaking into houses and unloading the guns, so when the victims attempted to defend themselves, their guns only went click click with impotent failure. He liked to attack couples, and then would escape police by vaulting over fences, or jumping from rooftop to rooftop while shooting.
He graduated to serial killing as time went on, and was only connected to the killings via DNA in the early 2000s. No one seems to know who this guy is, and more shockingly, most people have never heard of him. Probably the most fascinating unidentified criminal I am aware of. There is an online community dedicating to solving this case, so if you know anything, or have interesting resources, please get involved! If he is still alive, he would only be in his mid 50s, or early 60s, most likely.” — PermanentBrunch
