‘Without Redemption’ Charts Psychological Evolution of Freeway Killer Bill Bonin, Reveals Master Manipulator at Work
 

Los Angeles, CA—Many books and articles have tried to explain the evolution of notorious serial killer Bill Bonin's personality, but all have fallen short compared to the new bio of the infamous Freeway Killer, Without Redemption: Creation & Deeds of Freeway Killer Bill Bonin, His Five Accomplices & How One Who Escaped Justice. Using a treasure trove of long hidden investigative documents, co-authors Vonda Pelto, Ph.D., who had numerous sessions with Bonin at LA Men's Central Jail, and Michael B. Butler were able to carefully chart Bonin's slow, steady progression from abused child to sexual predator and thence to brutal serial killer.  

Assigned to meet with and monitor the emotional health of serial killers and murderers in LA Men's Central Jail, Pelto had sessions with Bonin before, during and after his trial in late 1981. Those sessions, transcripts from years in mental hospitals and Bonin's own writings bring the reader inside the mind of the complex yet simple Bill Bonin.

Without Redemption identifies the psychological turning points during Bonin's descent, showing when and where certain events and decisions took place which impacted so many innocent lives. It also sheds light on how an abused high school dropout cleverly manipulated lawyers, judges, doctors, social workers, friends, family, probation officers, government bureaucrats, detectives and journalists.

The most detailed historical biography ever written about Bonin solves two murder mysteries and unlocks how one day of crossroads and coincidences, in the midst of the murder spree, proved a crucial day in the Bill Bonin story. Learn about the complex story of what happened after Bonin's final arrest, when so much was in flux and so many moving parts were swirling about. Archived investigative documents, collected from a variety of sources, brings to light a number of surprising, shocking, sad and even funny events from those ten tumultuous months from June 1980 to March 1981.
