Michael Gargiulo (43), who is nicknamed as “Hollywood Ripper”, has been found guilty of murdering two women, in planned attacks.
Gargiulo has been marked as “stone-cold serial killer”. To the court he said that he “took pleasure in plunging a knife into his victims over and over again, leaving them to die and be found by their loved ones.”
Gargiulo was also found guilty of attempting to kill a 26-year-old in 2008, who survived from the attack and reported against him.
22-year old teen, Ashley Ellerin was brutally murdered as she waited for her boyfriend Ashton Kutcher to pick her up for a date. Actor Ashton Kutcher also testified, since he had arranged a date with Ellerin the night she was killed.
The next day, Ms Ellerin was discovered dead by her room mate, having been stabbed dozens of times.
The second victim of Gargiulo was a 32-year-old Maria Bruno. She was killed in 2005. Ms Bruno was attacked and killed with a knife while she slept. Gargiulo lived in the same El Monte building where Maria Bruno was residing.
