From R. Barri Flowers, award winning criminologist and internationally bestselling author of the true crime classic, The Sex Slave Murders, comes a gripping new true crime short, The Sex Slave Murders 3: The Horrific Tale of Serial Killers Leonard Lake and Charles Ng.
Leonard Lake and Charles Ng left their dark mark on society as two of America’s worst and most appalling serial killers. Between 1984 and 1985, the unlikely homicidal pair perpetrated their sex-motivated crimes at a secluded cabin and adjacent custom-made bunker of horrors in an unincorporated area in Calaveras County, California, where they brought abducted victims, sexually assaulted, tortured, and murdered, often videotaping their heinous crimes for their sick pleasure. In all, the two serial slayers are thought to have killed between twelve and twenty-five persons. Only a twist of fate brought their reign of terror to a shocking conclusion. The entire sordid tale unfolds in this absorbing short.
Bonus material includes excerpts from the bestselling true crime book, The Sex Slave Murders: The True Story of Serial Killers Gerald and Charlene Gallego, and top selling true crime shorts, The Sex Slave Murders 2: The Chilling Story of Serial Killers Fred & Rosemary West, The Amityville Massacre: The DeFeo Family’s Nightmare, and Murder of the Banker’s Daughter: The Killing of Marion Parker.
