Dayton Leroy Rogers was born on September 30, 1953 in Oregon.

It is believed that Rogers’s murder series began in 1983, but due to the decomposition of the bodies, there is no exact date. His victims were all women between the ages of 20 to 35. They were known prostitutes and drug addicts. It is believed that when Rogers would pick up the women to engage in sexual intercourse he would bind and torture them. Most of the victims were stabbed to death, but some may have also died from blood loss. A few of the victims had their feet removed while they were still alive.

In August of 1987, Rogers was arrested for the murder of Jennifer Smith. While awaiting trial, the remains of seven women were discovered in the Molalla Forest. The bodies of the victims all showed similar kinds of abuse, wounds, nudity and mutilation. Rogers was sentenced to life in prison for the murder of Jennifer Smith. On June 7, 1989 he was found guilty for murdering all the women in Molalla Forest and was sentenced to death. However, in 2000 the Oregon Supreme Court overturned his death sentence. Rogers is currently awaiting his sentence for the crime he committed.
