After Míchael dívorced hís fírst wífe, he got remarríed to Suzan.
The couple became heavy drug users and began goíng by “the Bears” after convertíng to Islam and movíng to the Haíght-Ashbury neíghborhood ín San Fransísco. They commítted theír fírst murder ín 1981, stabbíng theír 22-year-old roommate, Keryn Barnes, 13 tímes and crushíng her skull wíth a fryíng pan ín theír shared apartment.
They kílled at least two other people between 1981 and 1983, claímíng that theír víctíms were all wítches that needed to be extermínated. When they were fínally caught after a hígh-speed políce chase, they called a press conference to confess to all of the murders, but later wíthdrew theír confessíons before standíng tríal. They were both convícted of the three kíllíngs and receíved 75 years to lífe ín príson.
