L贸pez preyed on the kindness of the young girls.


L贸pez was eventually captured in 1980, when he tried to lure a 12-year-old girl away from a market in Ecuador.

L贸pez was sentenced to 16 years in prison. Good behavior let to him serve just 14 years.


At the time, the maximum sentence in Ecuador for murder was 16 years (they didn’t allow consecutive sentences). So, 300 murders and he only served 14 years. He was released in 1994.

L贸pez was free in Ecuador for an hour before he was arrested again. This time it was for illegal immigration. He was deported to his home country of Colombia.


In Colombia, Pedro L贸pez was eventually convicted of a 20-year-old murder. He was declared insane and spent time in a mental asylum before being declared sane and released again in 1998.

The current whereabouts of L贸pez are unknown at this time, although Interpol has called for his arrest in connection to a 2002 murder.
