Billy Glaze (Billy Richard Glaze) an American serial killer known as Butcher Knife Billy and Jesse Sitting Crow. Glaze was convicted of raping and murdering three Native American prostitutes in Minneapolis in 1986 and 1987. In 1987, Glaze was arrested for drunk driving and a violation of parole in a 1974 Texas rape conviction. Authorities found evidence in his vehicle including a bloody shirt and hair samples which were used at his trial. Later DNA testing failed to match Glaze to the crimes, instead it implicated another suspect. In 2014, Glaze filed a motion for a new trial based on the DNA findings. In 2015, Glaze died from lung cancer after spending more than twenty-five years in prison.
