You might not remember the name of serial killer Michael Gargiulo – also known as the ‘Hollywood Ripper,’ for his California knifings, ‘The Boy Next Door Killer,’ because he lived so close to his victims, and the ‘Chiller Killer,’ for using his job as an air conditioning repair man to gain his victims’ trust – but I bet you remember that case where actor Ashton Kutcher’s date was murdered or recall Ashton testifying at the killer’s trial a few years ago. Today, we’ll go beyond the celebrity aspect of this case to examine how Mike Gargiulo got away with murder for 15 years, even after his DNA turned up on one of his victim’s fingernails, starting with the woman who survived him and finally put him in handcuffs.
