After a woman who Brudos attempted to abduct identified him, the police obtained a search warrant where they found a mountain of evidence such as pictures of the victims and rope that was found on the victims. He pleaded guilty to three counts of murder an received three consecutive life sentences with the possibility of parole. He latter died in prison of natural causes


Brudos is a Lust-Oriented Hedonist. First, but probably the least important proof of this is he is know as the Lust Killer, and all of his killing were to satisfy his deviant sexual pleasures, he was also a noted necrophiliac which all fits into the Lust-Oriented Hedonist typology.
