The American Serial Killer Guidebook

Apr 24 2022 • 46 mins

Angel Leoncio Recendiz aka The Railroad Killer who, throughout the 90s, brutally and I mean brutally raped and murdered 16 people but is suspected of killing as many as 23 or more. He was known as The Railroad Killer because of his penchant for riding the rails around the United States choosing his victims simply based on how close to the railroad tracks their homes were.

For almost 13 years he traveled the country choosing victims at random raping, murdering, and then robbing innocent men and women before either jumping back on the train or stealing their vehicle and dumping it in San Antonio Texas before sneaking back across the border into Mexico until his next murderous expedition into the US. After a short stint on the FBI’s 10 Most Wanted list, Resendiz turned himself in to Texas authorities before being convicted of murder and sentenced to death. In 2006, Resendiz paid his debt to society with his life by lethal injection in the Huntsville Unit in Huntsville Texas.
