Juan Corona, one of the most active serial killers in the United States before he was convicted in 1971, died at the age of 85 on Monday. At the time of his death, he served 25 parallel sentences.
Corona, imprisoned in Corcoran, California, was sentenced to murder and buried the body of 25 California farm workers. He moved to a non-public hospital, Vicky Waters reported from the State Correctional and Rehabilitation Department, where he finally died.
Many people who were killed were usually rented by Corona. Later, their bodies were buried in shallow tombs along the Feather River north of Sacramento. He killed one of his victims with a wound on his head.
