Product Information

Robert Benjamin Smith was convicted of the 1966 Arizona beauty salon massacre where he shot and killed four women and a child. Smith, 18, walked into the Rose-Mar Beauty College in Mesa and fired a shot into a mirror - he then ordered five women and two children to lie in a circle so they looked like the spokes of a wheel - their heads at the center, their feet on the perimeter. One of the women begged him to leave because 40 beauty school students were expected to arrive shortly. Smith replied, "Sorry, I don't have that many bullets." then systematically shot each victim twice in the back of their heads - after the murders he sat quietly and waited for police to arrive. When police asked him why he did it, he replied: "I wanted to get known, to get myself a name". Four women and a 3-year-old girl were killed. Smith was sentenced to death for the five murders but the sentence has since been commuted to life without parole.
