American thief and rapist who did so well with his burglaries that he was able to buy a Cessna 172, a seaplane, two homes, and a Hughes helicopter with his plunder.
After growing up in Reading, MA and graduating high school in 1965, he went on the road several years with a carnival. In the '70s he took a course in locksmithing and settled in Fort Lauderdale, FL where he began to steal and live the high life of a successful cat burglar. In 1/1979 he stole jewels worth more than $1 million from a Fort Lauderdale area home with three accomplices; he was traced and picked up seven weeks later.
He was suspected of more than 60 rapes of women from 1969-78 and was known as the "gentle rapist" because he used vaginal lubricant and a condom. At times he chided his rape victims for being seductive and wearing revealing attire. He also was said to wear a cape while committing the rapes. While in jail he wrote a boastful autobiography entitled "Why They Call Me Super thief."
Pictures show a man of moderate build with a pock-marked face and icy blue eyes.
