Summary

On 23 January 1978, David Wallin returned to an unlit home. His pregnant wife, Teresa (22), was nowhere to be seen. The radio was still playing, and there were some peculiar stains on the carpet. Wallin nervously followed the stains to his bedroom and encountered a scene so chilling that it would haunt him for the rest of his life. Teresa had been sexually assaulted and mutilated. She was also missing body parts and large volumes of blood.

Four days later, the Sacramento Police Department were called to a home approximately a mile away from the Wallin residence. They were not prepared for the horror that awaited them. Daniel Meredith (56) and Jason Miroth (six) were shot multiple times. Evelyn Miroth (38) was disfigured, disemboweled, and abused like Teresa. She was also missing body parts and large quantities of blood. David Ferreira (two), who Evelyn was babysitting, was nowhere to be seen and likely in the hands of the deranged mass murderer.

It was official. Sacramento had a bloodthirsty serial killer in their midst. The FBI and the local police were under no doubt that he would kill again and that his crimes would continue to escalate if not apprehended immediately. 

Vampire Killer is a gripping account of Richard Chase and one of the most gruesome true crime stories in California’s history. Ryan Green’s riveting narrative draws the listener into the real-life horror experienced by the victims and has all the elements of a classic thriller.

Caution: This book contains descriptive accounts of abuse and violence. If you are especially sensitive to this material, it might be advisable not to listen to it.

Very Gruesome

I hadn't heard of Richard Chase before I listened to this book. Ryan Green has really brought out the details of his crimes and you will need a strong stomach to listen to the narrator as he reads the life story of this bloodthirsty killer.
