Oscar Ray Bolin Jr
Oscar Ray Bolin Jr. was born around 1962. There is not a lot of information that can be found regarding his childhood or upbringing.
All of Oscar Ray Bolin Jr.’s victims were females between the ages of 17 and 26. They were raped prior to their murders. The victims were usually stabbed and bludgeoned to death. The remains of the women were found at different locations, never at the scene of the crime. Bolin forced his 13 year old brother to help him move one of the bodies.
In 1990, Bolin’s ex-wife confessed to her new husabnd that Bolin had murdered Terry Lynn Matthews. In July of 1990, Bolin was arrested for the murder of Terry Lynn Matthews. He was later charged for the murders of two other women. In each case he was found guilty of first degree murder and sentenced to death. These rulings were all reversed because the high court ruled that Bolin’s ex-wife should not have testified, as it went against Florida’s spousal privilege rules, even though they were divorced. He was found guilty and sentenced to death again. These charges were reversed, again.
In October of 2001, Bolin was in court for the seventh time regarding the same murders. By this time many witnesses had passed away, but he was again found guilty and then the ruling was overturned. The latest trial was in April of 2012, he was found guilty and sentenced to death. There is no news as to if Bolin will appeal this conviction again.
