  • The killer is also suspected of committing 120 home burglaries across Sacramento County. Police believe they found ski masks worn by the Golden State Killer in this undated

He noted, however, that because McNamara was the one to rename the serial criminal as "The Golden State Killer" (the murderer was previously known as the East Area Rapist), he felt that her work had been vindicated. He was known to stalk his prey for weeks ahead of time, lurking outside in the bushes and sometimes even letting himself into their homes prior to the attack to prepare the scene by unloading guns and unlocking windows.

Police at the time suspected they were chasing a fellow cop or armed services member because he was so methodical and meticulous, said Wendell Phillips, a former Sacramento deputy who joined the hunt for the rapist who terrorized the suburbs east of the state capital.

The police did not say what led them to surveil DeAngelo as a potential suspect this year, but coverage of the arrest is pointing to a true crime book released this past February.

When questioned about the book's impact on the investigation, Sacramento County Sheriff Scott Jones said that I'll be Gone in the Dark did not factor into the arrest.

Michelle McNamara was on a mission to capture the Golden State Killer - and after her sudden death in 2016, husband Patton Oswalt has been celebrating her achievements from beyond the grave. NPR reports that DeAngelo and his wife eventually divorced, and that DeAngelo was living with Misha and his grandaughter Zasia when he was arrested on Tuesday, April 24th.

The well-informed 13-year-old watched and read the news, and she knew who was raping her.

Texas Couple Charged With Enslaving African Girl
After years of physical and emotional abuse and suppression, the girl was finally able to escape, leading to the couple's arrest. The Toures are also accused of confiscating the girl's official documentation and keeping her in the USA until her visa expired.

After decades of false leads and dead ends, what finally appears to have nailed him is GEDmatch-an online genetic database that allows users to display DNA information publicly, as reported by the Mercury News.

"For years I have been talking to her spirit and just saying, 'We're gonna get him, mom".

Privacy laws aren't strong enough to keep police from accessing ancestry sites, which have fewer protections than regulated databanks of convicts' DNA, said Steve Mercer, chief attorney for the forensic division of the Maryland Office of the Public Defender.

After DeAngelo's first daughter Misha Louise DeAngelo was born in 1981, the killings, rapes, and robberies ceased for five years.

Defense attorney Kathleen Bliss chastised Constand for "cavorting around with a married man old enough to be her grandfather". Cosby, who had been silent throughout the trial, shouted back. " I want to see a serial rapist convicted ", Thomas said.

The suspect was also "involved in the rape and murder of several individuals, including couples, in Southern California", who were tied up in the same manner as the Sacramento-area victims and whose homes were plundered in a similar way, according to the Federal Bureau of Investigation.

Huddle told The Associated Press it is "still just going insane in my mind".

The news of DeAngelo's arrest, however, came too late for McNamara.

"She was such a victim's advocate and wanted cases that hadn't been publicized much", she said.

Scientists developed a way to identify rapists and others through DNA fingerprinting in 1986, the same year as DeAngelo's last alleged murder.

The Golden State Killer brutally rapes and murders Cruz in her parents' Irvine home while they were vacationing in Mexico, according to the Orange County Register. "It's an emotional roller-coaster right now", she told the AP. She does not want to confront DeAngelo in person and has moved on with her life.
