Richard D. McGann
21 Years Old

September 1, 1962 to May 7, 1984

Richard McGann, of San Pablo, California, enjoyed camping, fishing and oil painting. He loved to work on mechanical objects.

Richard loved and trusted everyone.


Richard McGann, 21, of San Pablo, California, gave two men a ride from Reno, Nevada, to Sacramento, California. The men had planned the murder. One, Ricky Lee Egberto, didn't like Richard because he had dated Egberto's ex-girlfriend while Egberto was in prison in Los Angeles. The two men left Richard for dead and returned to Reno to shower. It was then that they discovered one of them had lost their wallet. They returned to the crime scene and saw that Richard was still alive. They ten cut his throat and stabbed him a total of 53 times.

Ricky Lee Egberto pleaded guilty to murder and was sentenced to 40 years. Kraig Canfield pleaded guilty to voluntary manslaughter and was sentenced to 12 years in prison. He served five years and nine months, broke parole three times and was rearrested in 1995 in Utah for sodomizing a minor. He was sentenced to five years to life in prison for that crime. He is still in prison.

Ricky Lee Egberto is in prison in Nevada for another murder committed the same week as Richard's. He was given two life sentences without parole. In the event that he would be paroled, Egberto will then serve his sentence in California for Richard's murder.
