  • Sandy Betts says:

    I would like to know what the proof is that this is the killer of Victoria Bell ? I was one of the last people who saw her alive and saw the man whom I believe killed her, he followed her out from the restaurant I worked at in Oakland Ca. April 3d 1988 Easter Sunday.

  • Brian Combs says:

    Well, he was definitely convicted of Victoria’s death. Most articles about Choyce mention this. Here’s one. There is also a series of articles in the forums of John Douglas’ site.

    As for the evidence of her, I don’t have a transcript of the trial, so I can’t really speak to that, but apparently, he plead guilty to her murder.

    Hope that helps!

    • Sandy Betts says:

      That helps yes and no, because I know that there have been many people confessing to crimes that they had nothing to do with. Especially if they are told that they might get a lighter sentence.I wonder what the odds are that one serial killer follows a woman out of a restaurant and another serial killer sees her and kills her ? I do thank you for your information and links to more information on her murder just the same.

  • Kate mills says:

    I am seeking information into the death of LaWanda Beck.
    Can you please help me?

  • Chenequa Beck says:

    If you did can you please send an email or just simply reply?? Thank you.

  • sandy betts says:

    Chenequa, Are you asking me if I knew LaWanda ? I didn’t sorry, but I am interested in all victims of serial killers. A.A. Male’s mostly kill people in their same race.

  • Chenequa Beck says:

    Oh okay. Sorry to bother you. I just wanted to know more about her. Thought maybe you were a friend of hers or something. But I can help you with information on this case. What did you want to know?

  • Crystal Bell says:

    I am the daughter of Victoria Bell. My name’s Crystal, she was married to my Late father Bert Bell when she died. I’m now 29yrs old. I’m looking to get all of the info that I can get on this Case. I stood trial for it, but I was pretty young and didnt understand what was going on. Please help. She also had a young son, my brother JoJo, I havent seen him since she died, I was only 2. I’m trying to locate him. Can anyone help me? Thank you.

  • Sandy betts says:

    Dear Crystal, I will do my best to help you find your brother Jo Jo. If you would like to contact me , you can find me at web site.I am very sorry for the loss of you mother and father. I tried to locate you father, when I found that he had past away, also too young.
    I think I know the area where Jo Jo could be living, my guess is where your father was when he died.

    Is Jo jo a nickname for John or Joseph ?

  • Jaervn says:

    First, to anyone who was affected by Choyce’s brutality has my deepest empathy. Second, it was DNA evidence.
    In the autobiography of his ex-wife, “Conquering Darkness,” she refers to evidence from the court cases. Wm. J. Choyce was first convicted of two rapes and was incarcerated for those crimes when he was linked by DNA to four cold cases: three rape/murders and another rape. The sixth rape victim testified. Total convictions: All the charges associated with three rape and three rape/murder cases. Unfortunately, as a serial offenders, there is a possibility Choyce committed other rapes and murders.

    So it is now 2016…is this man still alive on death row?
