On May 14, 1983, two police officers pulled over Randy Kraft for drunk driving. Once they looked in his car, they found an unconscious body with blood on the seat. Unfortunately, this was only the start of what would become the story of one of the most notorious freeway killers.
On November 29, 1989, serial killer Randy Kraft was sentenced to die in San Quentin’s gas chamber. Kraft, a prosperous data processing consultant by day, preyed on teenage boys by night, leaving them dead and mutilated. Convicted of 16 murders, the true count may be closer to 67.
Michael Sean O’Fallon, a 17-year-old Colorado native, hoped to “see the world” after high school. He hitchhiked to British Columbia in June 1980 and made it back to Oregon before his luck ran out. His naked corpse was found along I-5, 10 miles from Salem, on July 17, 1980. O’Fallon was hog-tied with shoelaces, a cord knotted around his scrotum. Despite near-fatal levels of alcohol and Valium in his blood, death had been caused by strangulation.
