Review: Vampire: The Richard Chase Murders by Kevin Sullivan

In the 1970s, Richard Chase's murders terrorized Sacramento.  They were brutal, gruesome and random.  The only thing they had in common was a VERY small geographic region.  

Mr. Chase was clearly delusional and drank the blood of some of his victims (hence the moniker of 'Vampire'). 

 The most interesting question I found while reading the book, is how clearly the definition of mental illness versus LEGAL insanity played out in his case.  It was well researched and presented and a very interesting read.
