Michael Bruce Ross

(July 26, 1959 – May 13, 2005)

Was an American serial killer, also known as "The Roadside Strangler".

In 2005, at the age of 45, he was executed by the state of Connecticut for four murders he committed, he eventually confessed to eight during the time frame of his killings. It was the first execution in Connecticut since 1960.


Born on a chicken farm in Putnam, Connecticut, on July 26, 1959, Ross was the oldest of four children. His young life was horrific as his mentally unstable mother beat all four of her children without reprieve.

It has been said that a young Ross was sexually abused by a teenage uncle who later committed suicide. In spite of his troubled youth, Ross excelled in school and eventually studied at Cornell University. As a sophomore at Cornell, Ross found trouble when he began stalking female students on campus.

As a senior, he committed his first rape and murder. Over the next three years, he would rape and murder eight women. Called 'The Roadside Strangler' (because of where the bodies of his victims were dumped), Ross was finally caught when after the last murder, witnesses claimed that the victim was last seen getting into a blue Toyota. Police investigators eventually got to Ross, who owned a car matching that description, and during the interrogation, Ross kept dropping subtle hints that he was their man. Once in custody he confessed to all eight murders.

He was put to death by lethal injection on May 13, 2005.

This underwear shirt was worn under his prison sweater on Deathrow before his execution in 2005 by the State of Connecticut. This was sent to his fiance Susan Powers after Michael's execution by prison staff just like Michael asked. She kept it all this time and recently parted with it. We can clearly see dark sweat marks left on the shirt from that day...

handwritten and signed by his ex-fiance Susan Powers.

These drawings are of some of the 58 men who were executed in the United States of America between October 2006 and June 2008

Uh, I don't know. Um...I don't know what to say.
This system is broken.

Tell Bobby Mr.Bear will be dancing for them
I love you. I love you. That is it. Goodbye.
I'm going to be with my mommy
You have every right to hate me

I hope that you get what you want and it makes you feel better
I did not know the man but for a few second before I shot him
Remember what I told you, Brad.
Take care of that, little monster, for me.
