'Golden State Killer,' Suspected Of Terrorizing California For Years, Arrested

The Golden State Killer is suspected of committing dozens and dozens of crimes in Sacramento County in the late 1970s

Between 1976 and 1986, the serial offender who became known as the East Area Rapist or Golden State Killer terrorized California by committing at least 50 rapes and 12 murders, as well as over 100 residential burglaries.

While most consumers would submit DNA to a commercial company such as Ancestry.com and 23andMe to create a genetic profile, the Federal Bureau of Investigation did so for investigators, Holes told The New York Times.

Oswalt on Wednesday said he was not surprised his late wife was being denied some credit from authorities.

The company whose genetic website was used by investigators who misidentified an OR man as a possible suspect in the so-called Golden State Killer case says it was never contacted by law enforcement.

"Obviously, you didn't want the East Area Rapist on the team", Phillips said. When she died in 2016, her husband comedian Patton Oswald saw to it that the book was published.

"It kept interest and tips coming in", he said.

Sacaramento County Sheriff Scott Jones told reporters that DeAngelo seemed surprised when he was arrested this week without incident.

But on Thursday, Steve Grippi, chief deputy district attorney for Sacramento County, said detectives narrowed their search by using genetic information available through commercial genealogy websites furnishing personal family histories to consumers who send DNA samples in for analysis.

In March 2017, an Oregon City police officer, working with the California investigators, obtained a court order directing the nursing home resident, a 73-year-old man, to provide a DNA sample.

How much did Michelle McNamara's recent book about the Golden State Killer - "I'll be Gone in the Dark" - have to do with the arrest of Joseph James DeAngelo?

Over the years, when news of the "Golden State Killer" would pop up, Dave said he closed himself off to it.

However, DNA evidence has allegedly tied the identity of the Californian serial killer to a 72-year-old former police officer named Joseph James DeAngelo.

The Visalia suspect used sophisticated "pry tools" to gain entrance to locked homes, just as DeAngelo is alleged to have used in the other crimes, Salazar said. In October, attacks that McNamara looked at began in Orange County and continued for two more years.

Oswalt, who has since remarried, said McNamara developed anxiety and sleep issues, which she treated with a mix of prescription drugs, including Xanax. On Wednesday afternoon, Oswalt watched with a breathless online community of true-crime enthusiasts as authorities in Sacramento, California, announced the arrest of a man believed to be the so-called Golden State Killer, who has eluded justice for decades. "Think you got him, Michelle.!"

Appearing in court in a wheelchair Friday, DeAngelo, 72, was arraigned on murder charges.

"I just yelled at her, 'Why don't you just stay out of my life?' And I hung up the phone and I peddled off on my bicycle and I thought I had the last word", Debbi Domingo said.

Grounds for making the arrest reside in scientific advancements - DNA - that have had the effect of making even the coldest case warm if that potential magic bullet is recovered at the crime scene.
