Arthur Shawcross

From Wikipedia:  

"On May 7, 1972, Shawcross sexually assaulted and murdered 10-year-old Jack Owen Blake after luring the boy into some woods in Watertown. On September 2, 1972, he raped and killed eight-year-old Karen Ann Hill, who was visiting Watertown with her mother for the Labor Day weekend.

Arrested for these crimes, Shawcross confessed to both murders. Under a plea bargain deal, he revealed the location of Blake's body. Shawcross then pled guilty to killing Hill on a charge of manslaughter and the Blake murder charges were dropped. Shawcross was found guilty and sentenced to 25 years imprisonment.

Shawcross served 14½ years in state prison before he was released on parole in April 1987."

He then went on the become a serial killer murdering 12 prostitutes over a 21 months span dating from March 1988 to December 1989.
