This auction is for a letter from one of California's "Toolbox Killers" Lawrence Sigmund Bittaker (9/27/1940 - 12/13/2019). Lawrence Bittaker, also known was Pliers, with accomplice Roy Lewis Norris, committed a series of abductions, rapes, and torture murders from June 24, 1979 to October 31, 1979, killing five teenage girls. The moniker of The Toolbox Killers came due to the vast majority of the items used to torture and murder their victims were pulled from a toolbox, kept in the van the two used to commit their crimes. The duo would be apprehended separately on November 20, 1979. In the plea arrangement Roy Norris would testify against Lawrence Bittaker in order to escape the death penalty and receive a 45 years to life prison sentence. During his trial, a homemade tape recording the two made of a woman being brutalized and raped was played for the jury. The victim would be identified as the fifth and final victim of both Bittaker and Norris. The jury found Lawrence Bittaker guilty of all five murders, five counts of kidnapping, conspiracy to commit murder, and multiple counts of rape, forcible oral copulation, and forcible sodomy. On 3/24/1981 he was sentenced to death. Roy Norris died of natural causes on 2/24/2020. Lawrence Bittaker died of natural causes on 12/19/2019. He was 79.
