Two convicted sex offenders have been indicted by a grand jury on murder and rape charges in the killing of four women in Orange County, California, in late 2013 and early 2014. The victims had a history of prostitution.

One of the suspects told police in an interrogation that there was a fifth victim, but she has never been identified or found.
