Daily Creepout: Richard Ramirez’ Thumb Cuffs

In the spring of 1984, serial killer Richard Ramirez broke into the home of senior couple Harold and Jean Wu. Ramirez, nicknamed ‘Night Stalker,’ shot Mr. Wu, 66, in the head and then got to work on Mrs. Wu. He beat her, asking where they kept their money. When the distressed Mrs. Wu didn’t give him the answer he wanted, he bound her hands behind her back with these thumb cuffs and searched her house.
