HERALD Thursdoy, Dec. 18, 1956 3 The Friendly Store SAN DIEGO, Calif. (AP) "Some crimes are so revolting there is only one penalty — the death penalty," said Superior .Judge John A. Hewicker. "I've never lieard anything like this case — and I hope I won't again," be added. Before him stood Harvey Glatman, 31, a Los Angeles television repairman who had confessed luring three young women into re- mote areas to take photographs, then raping and slowly strangling them. "The torment and ttie suffering those girls underwent," said Hewicker, "must have been horrible. I will impose the death penalty as the only proper judgment." 'What I Wanted' Glatman later told reporters: "It was about what I wanted." In a tape recorded confession presented at the trial, Glatman sfiid his motive for dating the women was sexual. He said he would not have killed them had they cooperated. He raped them and killed them so they wouldn't tell police. Glatman's photos of his victims —showing them bound and gagged before death — were entered as evidence and released to newsmen.
