Visalia Ransacker

Pseudonym formerly used to refer to the Golden State Killer

The Visalia Ransacker is a serial prowler, voyeur, burglar, and murderer who operated in Visalia, California in the mid-1970s. He is suspected to have committed around 120 crimes. In most of his crimes, the Ransacker would break into a single-family home and tear apart the interior while stealing only small items. Within the law enforcement community, it is believed that the Ransacker's crime spree began in March 1974 and ended in late 1975, the majority of his crimes having been committed near the College of the Sequoias.
