Authorities: Golden State Killer in custody

The serial killer and rapist is also suspected of committing nearly 50 rapes in southern California over the span of a decade. The above

In an Instagram video on Wednesday, Oswalt says: "You did it, Michelle".

According to police, DeAngelo is responsible for as many as 12 murders and upwards of 50 rapes during a reign of terror that gripped California in the 70s and 80s.

McNamara died in her sleep at the age of 46 in April 2016 before she could finish the book she was writing about the case. "It kept interest in tips coming in". Authorities said they were looking into whether he committed any of the alleged Golden State Killer-related crimes while on duty as an officer.

"I have children", another neighbor, Beth Walsh, who lives behind DeAngelo on an adjacent street, told the newspaper.

"A bittersweet thing where finally somebody is apprehended, but it opens old wounds", Jones said at a press conference Wednesday.

Also known as the "East Area Rapist" and the "Original Nightstalker", the Golden State Killer has been linked to at least 12 murders, 51 rapes and 120 home burglaries in California between 1976 and 1986.

Sacramento Sheriff Scott Jones said detectives with "dogged determination" were able to get a sample of DNA from something DeAngelo discarded, though he wouldn't say what the item was.

Little did everyone know, at the time, was that the ex-police officer was allegedly hiding a dark secret.

DeAngelo served as a police officer in California between 1973 and 1979, police reportedly confirmed, ending his time on the force a few years after the crime spree began. That serial criminal was tied to burglaries and one killing.

The first known attack, Katie Mettler wrote in The Post, took place in the middle of the night in the summer of 1976, when the man snuck into a home in east Sacramento County, raped a young woman and left.

"We have interviewed some family members", Jones said.

It was not immediately clear Wednesday what DeAngelo did to make a living later in life. He was formally charged with the 1980 deaths of Lyman and Charlene Smith of Ventura.

Willie Snead Will Play for Ravens After Saints Decline to Match Contract
Snead had career-lows in every category in 2017, catching just 8-of-16 targets for 80 yards across 7 starts and 11 games played. On the final day of restricted free agency, the Ravens signed Snead to an offer for $10.4 million total over the two years.

The suspect, also dubbed by investigators as the "East Area Rapist" and the "Original Night Stalker", is considered one of the state's most prolific serial killers, the Federal Bureau of Investigation said.

An arrest warrant was issued Tuesday and a complaint was filed charging DeAngelo with two counts of murder with special circumstances for the murder of a Sacramento couple in 1978, said Schubert.

However, she does not want the killer to face the death penalty. Almost 40 years later, in 2016, investigators tied the murder of Brian and Katie Maggiore to the East Area Rapist.

Schubert said it was only in the last six days that evidence began conclusively pointing investigators to DeAngelo.

Investigators believe the suspect known as the "East Area Rapist" was active in Sacramento between 1976 and 1978, culminating in the murder of a husband and wife on February 2, 1978 in Rancho Cordova, according to the Sacramento County Sheriff's Department.

"This case is a great example as to how fortunate we are to have DNA technology advancements, which can help solve crimes even as long as 40 years later".

Wardlow said she looks forward to going to Sacramento to watch the proceedings.

The FBI's website includes an audio recording of a 1977 phone call believed to be from the East Area Rapist in which a woman answers "Hello?" and the caller breathes heavily into the receiver and whispers "I'm going to kill you" three times. The attacks expanded to the Bay Area in late 1978.

California authorities say the arrest of a suspected California serial killer who's accused of dozens of slayings and sexual assaults in the 1970s and '80s comes after tireless work.

"Finally, after all these years, the haunting question of who committed these awful crimes has been put to rest", Orange County District Attorney Tony Rackauckas told reporters.

According to cops, DeAngelo spent eight years brutalizing women - and sometimes men -- from different cities across California.
