Books and Videos about the Green River Killer

Updated on March 5, 2011

He looked to be a normal man....

Gary Ridgway is a serial killer who killed women in Washington State, USA, near the Seattle and Tacoma area. He killed mostly runaways and prostitutes during the 1980s.

At least 50 women asked him if he was the Green River killer. His reply: "Do I look like the Green River killer?"

But Gary Ridgway was the Green River Killer. He probably killed 60 or 70 girls in total. In court he said, "I killed so many women I have a hard time keeping them straight."

He lived a double life. Don't miss the book by his wife, which is featured below!

      I just saw this movie the other day. I think that other serial killers ie: Robert pickton may have used his methods. Very sad that there can be that type of inhumanity in people.
