Cary Stayner

(born August 13, 1961) Stayner is an American serial killer currently on death row for the 1999 murders of four women in Yosemite, California. Stayner's victims were Carole Sund, her daughter Julie, Argentine exchange student Silvina Pelosso and park employee Joie Armstrong.

Stayner claimed after his arrest that he had fantasized about murdering women since the age of seven. Stayner's family life was fairly traumatic; his younger brother, Steven, was kidnapped by child molester Kenneth Parnell in 1972 and held captive for more than seven years before escaping and being reunited with his family. Stayner would later say he felt neglected as his parents grieved over the loss of Steven.

Although he confessed to all four murders, Cary pleaded not guilty by reason of insanity. His lawyers cited a family history of sexual abuse and mental illness, manifesting itself not only in the murders but also in Stayner's admitted pedophilia (he at one point requested child pornography in return for his confession) and obsessive-compulsive disorder. He was nevertheless found sane and convicted of four counts of first degree murder by a jury in 2001. In 2002, during the penalty phase of his trial, he was sentenced to death.
