How DNA from family members helped solve the 'Golden State Killer' case

The Golden State Killer is suspected of committing dozens and dozens of crimes in Sacramento County in the late 1970s True crime writer credited for renewing interest in Golden State Killer case

Margaret says her attack happened in her bedroom at 2 a.m., 41 years ago, and the perpetrator used the same M.O.as other East Area Rapist and Golden State Killer attacks.

Emmy Award victor Oswalt earlier shared his thoughts in a video on Instagram about the arrest, which McNamara had been digging into from 2013 until her death.

"Okay, flying to NY from Chicago", he announced on his Instagram on Wednesday (April 25).

DeAngelo was arrested at his suburban Sacramento home and investigators have alleged he is also the so-called Golden State Killer responsible for 12 murders and dozens of rapes from 1976 to 1986 throughout California.

Patton Oswalt is speaking out in the stunning arrest in the Golden State Killer case-and his late wife Michelle McNamara's interest in it.

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.

The woman, an amateur genealogist, cooperated, but ultimately investigators determined none of her relatives were viable suspects, she said.

"You did it, Michelle", Oswalt said in an Instagram video.

On an emergency episode of My Favourite Murder, Jensen said that he was told about the impending press conference late at night after spending the evening with Gone Girl author Gillian Flynn, and spent the next day speaking with MacNamara's ex-husband, comedian Patton Oswalt, feeling like the arrest wasn't reality. The girls, who were about 8 or 9 years old at the time, were supervised by DeAngelo's daughter.


DeAngelo's suspected of being the sadistic attacker who killed 13 people and raped almost 50 women during the 1970s and '80s.

Skrine said McNamara always believed DNA evidence would capture the killer. He's been called the Visalia Ransacker, the Original Nightstalker and the Golden State Killer. Just hours before he said that, suspect Joseph James DeAngelo, 72, was arrested in California on a warrant stemming from two of the murders.

Sacramento County Sheriff Scott Jones referred to the genetic materials as "discarded DNA", however authorities on the time refused to offer specifics about the way it was collected or matched to the suspect. It was the same technology that would lead investigators to former Auburn Police Officer Joseph DeAngelo.

A genealogical website that police used to track down a man they believe is the Golden State Killer says it had no idea its service was involved in the hunt for one of California's most elusive serial killers.

DeAngelo is scheduled to make his first court appearance in Sacramento on Friday, facing two counts of murder.

McNamara began researching for the book years before she began formally working on it in 2013. I don't know what made him that way, but you've got to think Bonnie dumped him, he's not happy about that, he still had feelings for her, who knows?

The East Area Rapist has devastated families throughout the state and in 1981 he claimed the lives of a Santa Barbara woman and her boyfriend.

"[DeAngelo] had become interesting to me to a point where I felt I needed to go see where he lived", Holes said.
