Ricardo Leyva "Richard" Muñoz Ramírez (February 28 or 29, 1960 – June 7, 2013) was an American serial killer, rapist, and burglar. His highly publicized home invasion crime spree terrorized the residents of the greater Los Angeles area, and later the residents of the San Francisco area, from June, 1984 until August, 1985. Prior to his capture, Ramirez was dubbed the "Night Stalker" by the news media.
