The notorious Bay Area killer (but in suspected in the LA Region, too) was allegedly named today. Earning him the worst father of the century award, Guy Ward Hendrickson, who lived in Orange County (however, reports do not indicate when), died in 1993 from cancer and took his daughter with him on his killings. That's all according the said daughter Deborah Perez who stepped forward today to preempt a soon-to-be announced theory from a Sacramento investigator. Whether she's delusional herself or not, that has yet to be seen but SFist has their own theories.
