2001: Gary Ridgway, aka The Green River Killer, is arrested in Renton, Wash., for the murders of four women whose cases were linked to him through DNA evidence. Ridgway murdered numerous women and girls, most of whom were also alleged prostitutes, in Washington state during the 1980s and 1990s, earning his nickname when the first five victims were found in the Green River. In November 2003, he would plead guilty to 48 counts of aggravated first-degree murder as part of a plea bargain that would spare him execution in exchange for his cooperation in locating the remains of his victims and providing other details.
