THEY CALLED HIM THE RED LIGHT BANDIT “Tell Rosalie I said goodbye. It’s all right.” Caryl Chessman’s last words, on May 2, 1960, were for Rosalie Asher, a Sacramento attorney who had spent more than a decade fighting to save him from execution. Just ten minutes earlier, she’d lost one last legal battle at the California Supreme Court – and Chessman was put to death in the THEY CALLED HIM THE RED LIGHT BANDIT “Tell Rosalie I said goodbye. It’s all right.” Caryl Chessman’s last words, on May 2, 1960, were for Rosalie Asher, a Sacramento attorney who had spent more than a decade fighting to save him from execution. Just ten minutes earlier, she’d lost one last legal battle at the California Supreme Court – and Chessman was put to death in the San Quentin penitentiary gas chamber. Since 1948, nine different execution dates had been set. Stays were granted seven times, permitting new appeals at the very last minute, and on the eighth appeal, Governor Edmund G. Brown offered a reprieve. Chessman, 38 years old at the time of his death, had spent more than twenty years behind bars. Still, not five minutes before he entered the death chamber, Chessman insisted to Warden Fred Dickson that they had the wrong man – he wasn’t the “Red Light Bandit” who had kidnapped two young women in Los Angeles in January, 1948. Chessman had been convicted of 17 felonies, but the counts of kidnapping earned him a death sentence. BONDAGE MURDERS Shirley Withers and Peter Shellard looked to be a mismatched couple. Shellard was a multi-millionaire dollar real estate mogul and high-end car dealer. Shirley was an ordinary looking bookkeeper; frumpy and shy. But what they had in common was a taste for bondage and S&M... Shellard bought Shirley everything she wanted but it still wasn't enough as she would steal close to one million dollars from his estate. With her larcenous nature revealed, Shirley would retaliate against her lover by hatching a bizarre murder plot of torture, drugs and kinky shenanigans that shocked the country.
