Bonin, known as the Freeway Killer, was convicted of 14 murders in 1982, and was likely responsible for even more. He earned his nickname due to the fact that Bonin’s victims were found scattered alongside freeways in Southern California. During his trial, the prosecutor referred to Bonin as “the most arch-evil person who ever existed”. Bonin’s last meal included two large pizzas, three pints of ice cream, and Coca-Cola.
