Ray posed as an undercover police officer and approached Cynthia Vigil in a parking lot.
Neither her husband, nor police, believed her story.
Her husband believed she had been cheating on him the night she was attacked.
Thinking he had killed her, Ray dumped her on the side of the road near Caballo.
She was later treated for her injuries at a local clinic.
He died of a heart attack about one year after his convictions in two cases (the second of which resulted in a plea deal).
