Former cop, 72, arrested in decades-old "Golden State Killer" case

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

According to Nine News, if it was a couple living at the home, he would tie up the man before attacking the woman.

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. He then ransacked the house, taking souvenirs, notably coins and jewelry before fleeing on foot or bicycle.

Sacramento County District Attorney Anne Marie Schubert mentioned Domingo by name Wednesday during the press conference announcing DeAngelo's arrest.

Wardlow also said she never let the attack define her. "It was right here in Sacramento".

DeAngelo was repsonsible for this home invasion shown in this undated photo, Federal Bureau of Investigation officials said.

"He was very surprised by that", Jones said.

"It's very possible he was committing the crimes during the time he was employed as a peace officer", he said.

He was arrested Tuesday evening, and authorities are filing or preparing to file 12 murder charges against DeAngelo in Sacramento, Orange, Santa Barbara and Ventura counties.

DeAngelo served as a police officer in Exeter, California, from 1973 to 1976 and in Auburn, California, from 1976 to 1979, when he was sacked for shoplifting a hammer and a can of dog repellent, Jones said. DeAngelo was sacked from the Auburn force in 1979, Jones said, after being accused of shoplifting a hammer and dog repellant from a store.

He transferred to the force in Auburn in the Sierra foothills near where he grew up outside Sacramento.

Yankees Promote Prospect Gleyber Torres
Infielder-outfielder Jace Peterson was designated for assignment, and infielder Tyler Wade was optioned to Scranton/Wilkes-Barre. Torres is the Yankees' No. 1 overall prospect and the top shortstop prospect in all of baseball, according to MLB Pipeline.

But few details were released about the suspect, a Navy vet who was an officer in the police departments of two small California cities, Exeter and Auburn, during the 1970s.

The Sacramento County Sheriff's Department could not immediately be reached for comment. He was convicted of the theft and fined $100. He is linked to more than 175 crimes in all between 1976 and 1986.

Joseph James DeAngelo, 72, the alleged Golden State Killer, was arrested Wednesday. "We just have nothing at this point".

Alameda County District Attorney Nancy O'Malley was a college student volunteering at a rape crisis center and "sat with survivors who had been assaulted by this guy".

This case, which involved one of one of the most prolific and elusive serial killers in modern American history, had remained an object of intense focus for many.

The lead Orange County homicide detective is now retired.

That crime was followed by rapes in the Northern California area, including Stockton, Modesto, Davis, and the East Bay.

Bruce Harrington bravely spoke out as brother to a victim.

News of DeAngelo's arrest marked a sudden development in what had been one of the most notorious unsolved crime sprees in USA history, one that stretched over a decade and terrorized scores of people across California. Schubert had recently received an email from Domingo saying, "This case will be solved because of sheer persistence". I'm not even sure why I'm drawn to the genre; I guess I'm just constantly enraged that so many people-especially women-suffer violence at the hands of perpetrators who are never brought to justice, and are then left to cope with the emotional and/or physical aftermath for the rest of their lives. "And to find out he lives right around the corner?"

"I'm a rational man, but I can't help but feel this transcends coincidence", collaborator Paul Haynes wrote on Twitter.
