California’s Most Wanted Serial Killer, Former Police Officer Joseph James DeAngelo Arrested After 40 Years
A former police officer who terrorised California residents during the 1970s and 80s has been finally arrested.
The suspect, 72-year-old Joseph James DeAngelo was arrested following DNA evidence about 2 months after the Golden Gate Killer gained renewed attention in a best selling book.
According to a Police Sheriff in Sacramento, new information extracted from the “I’ll Be Gone in the Dark” book helped in apprehending the suspect.
DeAngelo was tied to 120 burglaries, 12 murder and 45 rapes.
The crime happened in 10 Californian cities about 40 years ago.
The suspect was named Original Night Stalker and East Area Rapist by investigators who were unlucky in their quest to apprehend him.
