    They?re covering it right now on HLN. His neighbor said he?s lived there for many years, and that he has three daughters. I find it particularly heinous that a man with three daughters could do things that he?s been accused of. How disturbing that some of you live close to this guy.
    So when he was caught shoplifting, he supposedly took a can of dog repellent and a hammer?! FOR HIS RAPE & KILL KIT? Geez.
    Btw HLN is rebroadcasting their series Unmasking A Killer tonight. We just watched the entire series lady month. I wonder if that led to his arrest? One of the guests on tv just said that DeAngelo?s DNA is NOT in the system, but he was arrested because of a DNA match. That seems to point to the inference that one of his male relative?s DNA IS in the system, and that the authorities followed this man to seize his DNA, and that?s how they caught him. One guy said they?ve been following him for six days, so they were likely waiting for him to throw out a drink cup or a cigarette butt or something like that.

    I was telling my husband earlier about the cold cases that have been solved here lately (Buck Skin girl, this case, Lauria Bible/Ashley Freeman). I think all the old criminals that were never caught should be looking over there shoulders-someone is coming for them. The new genetic tests and databases are giving away secrets at a super fast rate. I have some concerns about privacy and insurability after those tests are done, but the result of solving these cases is nothing but wonderful.

    ETA: I would love to see a pic of this guy from the time period in question.

    I just don't know what I would do if this were my dad. I would be second guessing every interaction we've ever had. I wonder if it's possible to solve the zodiac murders...Lyle Stevik, there are so many cases.

    That's the most tragic thing about this. It's amazing news, but it's sad that she's not here to see this. I truly believe that not only is she the reason this happened, but that this case didn't do her any favors and had a hand in why she died.

    My God- Berm! I mean, I?ve seen shows & read articles about this guy, but seeing the long lists you posted... it blows my mind. Looking at your timeline... for much of the time, he must have been in a continuous violent crime cycle. They know he stalked people, observed their habits & schedules, and probably entered some of their homes prior to the day he actually committed the rapes/murders. So he must?ve gone directly from committing rape and, at times, murders, to hunting for his next victims.
    A continuous violent crime cycle.
    DAMN he was one busy son of a bitch. And each one of those names on the timeline you posted reflects the pain & despair that that bastard delivered to each victim, to their loved ones, coworkers, neighbors... the enormous ripple effect that crimes like these cause. I?m so glad he will finally be held accountable.

    I wish I could copy & paste some of this stuff, but my phone won?t let me! From looking at a screenshot of an old newspaper article on this particular sub Reddit (link below), it appears that funds were allocated for DeAngelo- working at the time as a POLICE OFFICER, and another cop, TO INVESTIGATE A STRING OF BURGLARIES going on at the time (this was BEFORE the rapes started), but authorities now believe HE WAS THE BURGLAR, referred to The Visalia Ransacker. Did I read that correctly? He was investigating his own crimes? Omfg!
    Btw there are some photos here, and one side-by-side of a composite drawing to a photo of him at the time is nearly spot on.
    Wow.

    It's so incredible that one person can get away with so much, but it makes more sense when you realize he could hide in plain sight and was well integrated in society. A "normal" guy, or a normal cop anyway.

    I'm interested to hear what his family has to say, if anything.

    Still curious to know why he stopped. Getting too old? Maybe when he started a family he decided to stop?

    It's scary to see all the street names, growing up in the area. It just makes it creepy and I will always think of it when at those intersections I drive almost daily.

    No one suspected because he just blended right in. Didn't live in a shitty part of town - nice house, neighborhood, etc. Just the older man next door. *shudder*

    A little bit about his family...
    https://www.usatoday.com/story/news/...ler/553070002/
    Former police officer Joseph James DeAngelo was arrested by Sacramento police Wednesday as the suspected Golden State Killer, accused of a series of rapes and murders that terrorized California communities in the 1970s and 1980s.

    The break came after FBI and California officials in 2016 renewed their investigation and offered a $50,000 reward for an arrest and conviction. A task force was set up to crack one of the state's coldest cases.

    "For over 40 years, countless victims have waited for justice," Sacramento County District Attorney Anne Marie Schubert said at the news conference Wednesday. "We found the needle in the haystack and it was right here in Sacramento. The answer was always going to be in the DNA."

    A court hearing was set for Friday. Here is what we know now:
    Who is this guy?

    DeAngelo was born in Bath, N.Y., but graduated from Folsom High School in suburban Sacramento in June 1964. He enlisted in the Navy during the Vietnam War, returning home a decorated vet to earn an associate's degree in police science from Sierra College and a bachelor's degree in criminal justice at Sacramento State, the The Sacramento Bee reported. He married in 1973 and later divorced.
    What is he accused of?

    DeAngelo was charged with eight counts of murder in three California counties. But authorities are trying to link him to 12 murders, 45 rapes and the ransacking of more than 100 area homes. Two murders and most of the sex assaults occurred in the three years he was an Auburn police officer outside Sacramento.
    When and where was he a police officer?

    DeAngelo worked as a police officer for two California departments in the 1970s, first in Exeter and then Auburn. Some of the crimes were committed while he was an officer. Auburn police department fired DeAngelo in 1979 after he was arrested for stealing a hammer and a can of dog repellant from a store.

    More: Golden State Killer: Ex-cop Joseph James DeAngelo arrested

    More: Patton Oswalt and the Golden State Killer suspect
    What do we know about his life since?

    The picture is not complete, but DeAngelo had been living in the Sacramento suburb of Citrus Heights with a daughter and granddaughter. He retired last year after working 27 years at a distribution center for Save Mart grocery stores, the chain confirmed. Neighbors said he built remote-controlled model airplanes and spent time working on his house and lawn.
    Did he threaten his victims?

    In May 1977, as the frequent attacks gained national attention, the rapist told a victim he would kill two people if his attack reached the media. Less than a year later, after several more assaults, Brian and Katie Maggiore were fatally shot in Rancho Cordova on Feb. 2, 1978, while walking their dog.
    What evidence led police to him?

    Authorities began revisiting the case in 2016, around the time of the 40th anniversary of the first known attack. New DNA techniques and more complete DNA databases recently allowed investigators to tie the various cases together and lead them to their suspect. He was then under surveillance for six days as police studied his movements to see how he might react if confronted, Sacramento county Sheriff Scott Jones.

    I have read that too, but everything I have read still makes me think they took an initial interest in him because of some type of tip or familial DNA. There seems to be a lot of speculation in comments on articles that one of the daughters tipped LE off.

    I really want to know also what led police to him specifically. I keep seeing a vague "tip" so I have a feeling we won't know for a while.

    I have a close friend who belongs to a group on Facebook. She sent me a screenshot where someone claiming to be a friend of the family says that the daughter found something (evidence? trophies?) linking him to the rapes/murders and turned him in as well as supplying her own DNA for testing. Obviously, this is hearsay...but who knows.

    (Also...long time no see. I also came back from the dead here just to see this thread.)

    Folks on Reddit were saying it was familial DNA that led to him. People were saying one of his kids was arrested a few years ago, and when their DNA was put in the state database, there was a familial match with the GSK. That's when LE started investigating him and got something out of his trash to test for a match.

    I can't remember if that was from a legit source or not, because I've been taking care of a sick child who has been spewing vomit all over my house, and I'm tired.

    After glancing again at r/unresolvedmysteries, I see that some people say they found the familial DNA through 23 & Me or a similar database rather than the state criminal database. I dunno.
