Zac Efron spends day in Clermont County Jail … as serial killer Ted Bundy

Actor Zac Efron spent the day in the Clermont County Jail on Thursday.

Efron, who’s playing serial killer Ted Bundy in an upcoming film, was spotted in the county Thursday afternoon.

Vintage police cruisers and film crews surrounded the jail for the filming of “Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil and Vile,” Sheriff Robert Leahy said.

The film has been shooting throughout southern Ohio and Northern Kentucky this week.

In recent days, the actor has been spotted in parts of Northern Kentucky. Portions of Newport, Latonia and Fort Thomas turned into movie sets this week.

The movie is expected to continue shooting through sometime in February, but it is not clear exactly when filming will be completely wrapped.

The prosecutor of Washington’s most populous county is calling for the repeal of the state’s death penalty. King County Prosecutor Dan Satterberg plans to testify Monday in favor of a proposal to replace capital punishment with life without the possibility of parole. 


Satterberg has previously called for a statewide referendum on the death penalty, but that idea has not gained traction. So now he’s urging lawmakers to pass a repeal measure this year.

“I’ve come to the conclusion that our criminal justice system would actually be stronger without the death penalty,” Satterberg said.

Satterberg, a Republican, said as a prosecutor he’s struggled to administer the death penalty and has come to believe it’s unnecessary.

“It’s unnecessary for public safety, it’s not a deterrent and frankly we don’t do it very well,” he said.

Satterberg noted that most counties in Washington can’t afford to prosecute a death penalty case.

Orange County DA Makes Sweetheart Deal Returning Serial Killer to the Streets

Inside a surreal Orange County courtroom today, 37-year-old serial killer Oscar Moriel turned to prosecutor James Laird, smiled and quietly mouthed, “Thank you.” Laird replied with a reciprocal, warm happy face to the man who admits he murdered at least six people and tried to kill a seventh. District Attorney Tony Rackauckas’ high-ranking staffer undoubtedly earned Moriel’s appreciation. Instead of spending the rest of his life locked in a prison cell, the remorseless killer incredibly will be walking the streets again in less than four years.

That’s the sweetheart deal Laird formally made this morning as reward for Moriel betraying his Delhi criminal street gang as well as the Mexican Mafia, and turning into a paid confidential jailhouse informant who aided federal and state law-enforcement officials in winning convictions against mob bosses.
