Does anyone know any details about Gerald Stano? Gerald Stano confessed to murdering 41 girls in the 1970's through the early 80's. He was executed in 1998 for the murder of a 17 year old hitchhiker. Many of his victims are still unknown. He admitted to killing teenagers, hitchhikers, and prostitutes in Pennsylvania, New Jersey, and Florida. I believe he lived in all three states during his life. I was wondering what areas of each state he was connected to and what time frames.
