Serial killer turns self in while holding severed breast in plastic bag

November 4, 1998
Eureka, California
Wayne Adam Ford turns himself in to police while holding a woman’s severed breast sealed in a Ziploc bag

Ford presented the severed breast to authorities and confessed to the sexual assault and murder of 4 women, 2 of whom were also mutilated. Although Ford confessed to 4 murders, the similarities between the confessed victims and other unsolved murders in the area were similar enough to lead police to suspect him in those murders as well. Ford was found guilty and sentenced to death in 2006. He is currently awaiting his execution.
