    CA - ANDREW URDIALES - charged in five Calif. murders, 1986-95

    Several cold cases solved!! I did a search for the perp and all the victims here on WS. Didn't find anything, but I have erred in the past, so mods feel free to merge if there is already a thread.

    SANTA ANA, Calif. - A convicted triple murderer was charged Wednesday with the killings of five Southern California women in cases dating back to the mid-1980s.

    Orange County prosecutors accused Andrew Urdiales, 45, of murders in Orange, Riverside and San Diego counties. He was convicted in Illinois in 2002 of killing two women and in 2004 for a third murder.
    snip...

    In Southern California, Urdiales will be tried in the murders of 23-year-old Robbin Brandley, who was stabbed 41 times while leaving a jazz piano concert in 1986; 29-year-old Julie McGhee, 31-year-old Maryann Wells, and 20-year-old Tammie Erwin, all of whom were shot; and Denise Maney, 32, who was tied up, sexually assaulted and stabbed to death. snip...

    Sounds like a SK and a good thing he was caught when he was. Psycho.

    He has killed at least 8 women - I agree Chicago - they stopped a SK. I wonder just how many he did kill. After all, he IS 45 yrs. old...He probably has been killing for 20 years...

    For more than 20 years!! The other cases were in the 80's! This guy was off my radar, never heard of him. Glad we have DNA and cold case detectives willing to put the pieces together.

    That is a good question Boyz Mum, however I get the impression that this guy would have been eager to gain notoriety for every act of evil during the confession stage. He seems to relish his status as a serial killer. However, he does appear to not to want to die himself so perhaps he is keeping some crimes under his breath to use as exchange for a sentence commutation to life or something. Can that happen after the sentencing phase?
    Who knows, this guys appears to be as heartless as they come, so he very well could have committed more murders than what he has been accused of. We shall see what investigators come up with.
    One final thought, Chicago is very close to Milwaukee, and they are trying to solve a number of killings I believe of prostitutes, perhaps there could be a link, but I'm fuzzy on the details of those killings...

    Never mind on the Milwaukee idea. It looks like he was arrested well before some of the crimes here occurred and the suspect in this case has never been arrested for a felony.

    What I've read, said he was a marine. Does LE cover the places where a person in such a position have traveled?

    Maybe he is a person who would reveal everything once caught, but I would have reservations believing anything out of his mouth. I wonder if their were other rapes he committed before he started killing?

    They would have worked with NCIS to connect the dots they have on this filth. He only got an honorable discharge because he wasn't caught sooner. He's just another POS that was able to benefit from DNA and ballistic technologies playing catch-up during his spree.

    I saw this on 48 Hours last night. My goodness, what a sadistic moron Andrew Urdiales is!!!! Poor Jennifer Asberson for what she went thru, but thank God she lived and survived even if it meant being in a mental institution for four years out of fear for her life. Urdiales is presently on Illinois Death Row.

    IMO This man killed many more women. He has nothing to loose to talk now but with a life without parole he might begin to talk for privileges. Many of them do. I guess time will tell.
