Ridgway is one of the most prolific serial killers in American history. During the 1980s and 1990s, he murdered at least 49 women.

Photographs of some of Ridgway's victims. As you can see, he did not discriminate by race. Furthermore, some of his victims were as young as 14 and 15.
During his crime spree, he specifically targeted vulnerable women. These included sex workers and teenage runaways.
Authorities believe that he is responsible for at least 71 murders. However, he was only charged with 49. During his confession, he admitted that he "lost count" of how many women he killed.
Judith Mawson was Ridgway's third wife. Judith was understandably shocked when she discovered that her husband was the notorious Green River Killer.
The pair met and danced at the White Shutters Tavern on Highway 99 in 1985. They were married three years later, in 1988.
Following their marriage, Ridgway's murder rate dropped significantly. Roughly 6% of his 71 suspected murders took place between 1988 and 2001. The remaining 94% took place between 1982 and 1987, before he married Judith.
Ridgway sold his house in 1999 after the couple purchased a new home in Auburn.
The couple divorced in 2002 after his crimes came to light.

Ridgway became a "top priority" suspect after 18-year-old Keli Kay McGinness went missing in June of 1983.
Shortly before her disappearance, the Port of Seattle Police pulled Ridgway's truck over during a traffic stop near the SeaTac Strip. At the time, it was noted a woman named Keli McGinness was in the pickup truck with him.
After McGinness disappeared, the police honed in on Ridgway as a suspect and obtained a warrant to search his house.
Unfortunately, despite scouring the property from top to bottom, investigators were unable to find any evidence to incriminate him. There were no items of clothing or jewelry or anything else that might link him to some of the victims.
