Richard Ramirez, a serial killer awaiting execution on California’s death row at San Quentin State Prison, best known as â€˜The Night Stalkerâ€™ is now a suspect in the murder of a 9 year-old girl named Mei Leung. Richard was convicted and sentenced to death in 1989 for 13 murders committed in 1984 and 1985 in Southern California.
Mei Leung was found murdered in the basement of a residential hotel at 765 O’Farrell St., where she lived with her family, after walking home with her 8-year-old brother from a friend’s house back in 1984 (it is possibly Richard’s first murder). This cold case was taken out of shelve due to new DNA evidence that linked Richard to the crime scene.
There are no details about how Mei was killed but police will continue to investigate this murder and several other homicides that occurred in that area around the same time. Richard, who is not 49 years old, has not been charged in the Mei Leung case yet.
