An easygoing government stock clerk who promoted car pooling and concocted savory chili at office picnics was convicted Wednesday of murdering a dozen prostitutes in a serial killing rampage that confounded authorities for 2-1/2 years.

William L. Suff, 44, a Riverside County warehouse worker who helped deliver office furniture to the very law-enforcement task force searching for the serial killer, was found guilty of luring the prostitutes into his vehicle, strangling or stabbing them and dumping their bodies in back alleys, trash bins, orange groves and rural fields, primarily around Riverside and nearby Lake Elsinore.
