October 22, 2002 The DC Sniper Kills His 13th and Final Victim

In one of the most bizarre true crime stories in recent history, two men – John Allen Muhammed and his teenage “son” Lee Boyd Malvo – went on a serial killing spree that spanned nearly a month and 13 victims around the Washington, DC area.

Muhammed now sits on death row in a Virginia prison.  Malvo is now serving life in prison with no chance of parole.  It’s a fascinating and tragic story of senseless violence in the name of Islam.  Although while John Muhammad was a Muslim, this violence was a result of his complete craziness and lack of a conscious – not jihadist ideology.
