This auction is for a pop up card crafted by of one of California's "Toolbox Killers" Lawrence Sigmund Bittaker (9/27/1940 - 12/13/2019). 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 Norris would testify against 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 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. Bittaker died on 12/19/2019 of natural causes. He was 79.
ITEM DESCRIPTION: The hand made pop up card measures 10"×11.5" when closed, dated 2013, and is signed on the reverse, "L. S. Bittaker." "Come visit scenic California! Climb the rugged mountains; Fish the reivers; Ride the surf and... FEED THE SHARKS!" The color on the shark is actually "airbrushed" by Bittaker, paint blown through a pen barrel, or something to that effect. The card is in pristine condition. This will make a handsome addition to your collection of worldly possessions! Message me with any questions you might have. Thanks for having a look-see.
