Richard Ramirez (AKA The Night Stalker, AKA the man who had the single most profoundly negative impact on the life of your SFist editor when he was just a wee lad during the summer of 1985) is a suspect in a 1984 San Francisco homicide, according to CBS 5. "Police said a DNA match identified Ramirez as the suspect."

Ramirez was known for torturing, raping and murdering people in their beds, eventually being convicted of 13 murders that took place between 1984 and 1985 in Southern California. (Your editor might or might not have slept with knife under his pillow two years after his capture.)

A 3 pm press conference will reveal the (gory) details.
