Leonard Lake and Charles Ng turned a remote property in northern California into a killing field in the mid-1980s.

“It’s impossible to know how many victims paid with their lives,” filmmaker Todd Howe told “Manifesto of a Serial Killer,” a three-part special streaming now on The two ex-Marines’ sex-torture killing spree came to an end in June 1985, when Ng was arrested near San Francisco for shoplifting, a crime he committed throughout his life.
When Lake tried to pay for the vise Ng had stolen, Lake was arrested for having an illegal gun silencer in his car — a stolen vehicle that belonged to a man named Paul Cosner, who’d gone missing months earlier, according to court records.

Ng managed to escape authorities when Lake was arrested. While in custody, though, Lake swallowed a cyanide capsule that had been sewn into his clothes. He died a few days later, according to court records.
By that time, police had found the Wilseyville property, along with the remains of men, women, and infants killed by Lake and Ng. Detectives also found Lake’s written and videotaped diaries detailing his plans to abduct young women and hold them captive in a cell they custom-built for that sinister purpose.
