Arrest of Golden State Killer gives relief to resident

Investigators also sought articles of clothing that might help tie the suspect to particular crimes, such as ski masks or gloves worn during the attacks, or jewelry, driver's licenses and other personal effects taken from victims, apparently as keepsakes or trophies, Belli said.

The development was first reported by the Sacramento Bee.

Now Domingo says this to her mother, "So today, of course, that message has changed, that message is, 'You know, we got him'".

He appeared in court in a wheelchair looking disheveled and wearing an orange, jail-issued jumpsuit. "I said, 'I don't care.' As soon as [I'd] start answering he'd say 'shut up, shut up, shut up'".

McNamara dedicated the last years of her life to investigating the killing spree.

"It just reinforced the fear - and it was never the same", she said. He was taken into custody outside his home in Sacramento on Tuesday and charged with six counts of murder.

In addition to Oswalt, several celebrity friends, including actors Rob Lowe and Emmy Rossum, credited Michelle McNamara's book for reviving interest in the 40-year-old case.

Investigators were able to make the arrest this week after matching crime-scene DNA with genetic material stored in an online database by a distant relative.

Throughout their tour, McNamara and Holes talked DNA, the possible "geographic profiling" of the suspect, bloodhounds, tire tracks and the skill the man sometimes demonstrated in gaining entrance to the homes - and then evading police.

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.

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




Officials initially did not disclose how their investigation led to DeAngelo, whose DNA had never previously been collected.

She researched the case for three years and published a story in Los Angeles Magazine.

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.

McNamara built such positive relationships with law enforcement officers that several of them attended her funeral in 2016 and "talked about her in a handsome way", Skrine said.

DeAngelo, a former police officer, probably would have known about the new method, experts said.

The acclaimed comedian spent much of Wednesday tweeting about his late wife's legacy and retweeting praise for her book, as well as updates on the case.

"To see this book come out and have people see the handsome writer that she was, was just awesome", Skrine said.

Prosecutors say Joseph DeAngelo carried out his most violent crimes in the months after he was sacked for shoplifting in 1979.

But, Debbi had to wait until Wednesday morning's press conference to actually learn the suspected killer's identity.

Authorities were seeking weapons and other items that could link the suspect to the crimes, Sacramento County Sheriff's Lt. Paul Belli said. VIDEO: What we know about suspected "Golden State Killer" The "Golden State Killer" terrorized the bay area from the fall of 1978 to the summer of 1979.
