Olga Rutterschmidt and Helen Golay appeared to be kindly old women spending their last days helping the less fortunate. They stopped by the Sunday lunch for the homeless at Hollywood Presbyterian Church. Olga and Helen were looking for victims.
Olga and Helen came from different worlds. Olga lived in a well-worn Sycamore Avenue apartment building. Helen owned rental properties on the westside and lived in one of her own buildings on Ocean Park Boulevard.
Olga and Helen preyed on homeless men, befriending them, and obtaining insurance policies for them. Afterwards, they'd kill the men, making it appear like hit and run accidents. They were arrested by the LAPD on May 18, 2006. On April 16, 2008, they were convicted and sentenced to life in prison without the possibility of parole.
