DECAPITATION. DEATH. DESTRUCTION.
A deadly game of depravity and destruction, including two decapitations. Three key players. Two of those players dead. Only one remains.
In Los Angeles, California, a series of murders occurred during the Summer of 1980, which left an indelible mark on countless individuals. This string of brutal and bloody crimes would make the already famous Sunset Boulevard, AKA The Sunset Strip infamous, and a place forever synonymous with the word EVIL.
This true story blends statements to law enforcement and trial testimony with personal accounts from those who experienced the events first-hand. The psychology behind these violent crimes is explored, along with a look at the psychological state and possible motives of the individuals.
Doug Clark – Convicted of 6 murders
Carol Bundy – Convicted of 2 murders including Jack Murray
Jack Murray – Murder victim (as well as the murderer?)
The story surrounding these three lethal lovers has made it a favorite of the media, which relishes in its shock value. The overweight nurse with thick glasses, who should have nurtured lives rather than take them, who stunned police when she gloated, “It’s fun to kill.” Two lotharios with a penchant for wearing women’s undergarments and sadomasochism.
They fed off each others’ twisted desires and savagery. Fantasies gave way to nightmares, and anyone unfortunate enough to cross their path became a potential victim. Intense California heat bathed Sunset Boulevard with the stench of garbage and fear— a smell that emanated relentlessly. It was the smell made by Death stalking the street in the form of The Sunset Strip Slayers.
