Golden State Killer may have Finally been Caught
After 44 years, the mystery surrounding the identity of the Golden State Killer may have finally been solved. A week ago, a DNA match helped Sacramento investigators pinpoint the Golden State Killer, also known as the East Area Rapist. The Golden State Killer is suspected of 12 murders and at least 51 rapes from 1974 through mid-1986 in California. Detectives focused on Joseph James DeAngelo, a 72-year-old retiree and former police officer who lives in Citrus Heights. DeAngelo is being held without bail in the Sacramento County Main Jail and is scheduled to make his first court appearance this afternoon.
