Former California policeman arrested 'Golden State' serial killer case

The notorious "Golden State Killer", believed to have terrorized California with a stunning series of 45 rapes and 12 murders starting in the 1970s, may finally be in police custody after eluding arrest for decades, the Sacramento Bee reported.

On Wednesday came news that authorities in Sacramento had made an arrest in the decades-long cold case involving a predator who is believed to have committed 12 murders and up to 50 rapes in 10 counties throughout California in the late 1970s.

Records of the Golden State Killer's attacks show that his last crime in the Bay Area occurred in Danville on July 5, 1979, when a masked man broke into a home on Sycamore Court.

The arrest is reportedly connected to two separate double murders: Brian and Kate Maggiore, who were shot while walking their dog in 1978 near the Sacramento County area where the East End Rapist was active; and Lyman and Charlene Smith, who were shot to death in their home in Ventura County after the suspected serial rapist moved further south in the state and began regularly killing his victims.

DeAngelo was arrested on suspicion of committing four killings in Sacramento and Ventura counties, authorities said.

Additional reporting from Newsy affiliate CNN.

DeAngelo, who has adult children, was a police officer in Exeter in central California from 1973 to 1976, officials said.

District Attorney's spokeswoman Shelly Osorio says a news conference will be held Wednesday afternoon in Sacramento to make "a major announcement".

The case has been featured in documentaries, podcasts and the best-selling book "I'll Be Gone in the Dark: One Woman's Obsessive Search for the Golden State Killer, by Michelle McNamara".

"I was not terribly interested in true crime".

At March's sales pace, it would take 3.6 months to exhaust the current inventory, up from 3.4 months in February. The median existing home price was $250,400 in March, up 5.8% from the level of $236,600 seen in March 2017.

Carson-Sandler became the first recorded rape victim on June 18, 1976. That serial criminal was tied to burglaries and one killing. The Golden State Killer. In 2016, the Federal Bureau of Investigation joined California officials in their renewed hunt for the suspect, and $50,000 reward was announced for his arrest and conviction.

In 1999, Orange County sheriff's homicide detectives were able to use DNA to link the Irvine slaying of Keith and Patrice Harrington to nine other slayings in in Orange, Ventura and Santa Barbara counties.

"I have just been overjoyed, ecstatic".

Almost all of the rapes and homicides between 1976 and 1978 occurred in the Sacramento region, followed by rapes in the San Francisco Bay Area and later homicides in Southern California.

She said the case forever altered a time of innocence in the community. "It's just so nice to have closure and to know he's in jail".

Kevin Tapia, now 36, said when he was a teenager, DeAngelo falsely accused him of throwing things over their shared fence, prompting a heated exchange between DeAngelo and Tapia's father.

But internal blockages, combined with the medications Adderall, Xanax and the pain medication Fentanyl took her life in April 2016 and her unfinished book was left in the hands of her husband, comedian Patton Oswalt, to complete. He said DeAngelo could often be heard cursing in frustration in his backyard.

"He's not like an overly creepy person, but he definitely, you know, kept to himself and kind of was. a little different", Tapia told HLN.

Oswalt, best known to television audiences from the hit CBS sitcom "King of Queens", said in a video posted on social media on Wednesday, "I think you got him, Michelle".
