William Bonin

An examination of not only the notorious murders committed by William Bonin, but the role the media played in the case.  Written by J.J. Maloney who, as a reporter for the Orange County Register, first coined the term "Freeway Killer".

He didn't have a name so we called him the Freeway Killer.

He was a murky presence, cruising up and down the freeways of Orange County and neighboring counties, stalking the dimmed tinsel byways of Hollywood, picking up those sad youngsters who came there in search of a dream and found a nightmare instead.

The police would later find the nude bodies sprawled behind filling stations, or in dumpsters -- cast off the way a child discards a doll that has served its purpose.
