Fred Willis murdered a 25-year-old stripper and call girl named Bonnie Ann Woods on December 21, 1984, in Las Vegas, Nevada. Woods was found nude and strangled to death in a motel room.

The following year, Willis pleaded no contest to a charge of second-degree murder and was sentenced to life in prison with the possibility of parole. Willis was described as "a very good, cooperative inmate," and was released from prison in 1995, having served a little over ten years of his life sentence.

Two years later, Zabrina Seaborn, 24, a stripper and call girl from Long Beach, California, was found semi-nude and strangled with her own dress strap, her body dumped in a Las Vegas alley.

Police turned up little evidence until the reciewed videotape showing Seaborn at a gambling table the night before she died with a "burly man". Police disseminated photos taken from the poor quality tape to the public; several people contacted them and identified the man in the photo as Fred Willis.

Police were able to develop enough physical evidence to tie Willis to the crime and he was arrested in October 1987.

Both the Woods and Seaborn murders seem to have been sexually motivated.

In return for the prosecution's dropping rape charges in the Seaborn case, Willis was again allowed to plead guilty to murder. This time he was sentenced to life in prison without the possibility of parole.
