East Area Rapist/Golden State Killer search: Possible arrest made, according to report

Local law enforcement announced in a noon press conference that DeAngelo was arrested after being tied to the crimes by DNA.

The booking photo for Joseph James DeAngelo, the suspected Golden State Killer, was released by the Sacramento County Sheriff's Department on April 25, 2018. In a statement, the Auburn Police Department confirmed his employment and termination and voiced its commitment to supporting prosecution.

Even with such distance between Sacramento and Southern California, detectives in the north who heard about the Original Night Stalker believed he was the same perpetrator as the East Area Rapist.

"No one thinks they live next door to a serial killer", Tapia said.

DeAngelo is also accused of four murders in the city of Goleta, and approximately 51 rapes and several other murders throughout California.

But there are many more victims.

"All too often we forget to talk about the victims and today we at least brought the first step towards closure for those victims of these horrendous crimes", Jones said.

Later than same month, according to Auburn Journal archives, DeAngelo went on trial for the shoplifting case and was convicted by a jury on October 31, the website Heavy.com said.

More state murder charges are expected, from Orange, Ventura, Contra Costa and Alameda counties.

DeAngelo, who has adult children, was a police officer in Exeter in central California from 1973 to 1976, officials said.

Brian Maggiore (r.) and his wife, Katie, were on an evening walk with their dog in their Rancho Cordova neighborhood in California when they were chased down and murdered by the serial killer in 1978.

Sacramento County district attorney's spokeswoman Shelly Orio declined to comment before the news conference.

On Wednesday came news that authorities in Sacramento had made an arrest in the decades-long cold case involving a predator who is believed to have committed 12 murders and up to 50 rapes in 10 counties throughout California in the late 1970s. "The answer was and always was going to be in the DNA", she said.

Carson-Sandler was attacked by the Golden State Killer in her Citrus Heights home on October 5, 1976. "The subject has eluded investigators for over 40 years and the victims and their families deserve justice", a Sacramento official said two years ago.

Jones on Wednesday could not confirm whether DeAngelo committed any of the crimes while on the job, but did not rule it out.

According to online inmate records, DeAngelo was booked into the Sacramento County Main Jail at 2:29 a.m. Wednesday on two counts of murder for a warrant out of Ventura County. The FBI said the victims were tied up in the same way and had their homes ransacked in the same way as the Sacramento area victims. His victims shared little in common, and his deadly escapades haunted the Golden State for almost a decade.

DeAngelo, 72, is reportedly being held without bail.

A victim of a notorious Northern California serial killer and rapist says she's overjoyed after learning that police believe they've arrested the man responsible.

The entire Sacramento area was terrorized by a masked man who continued to strike no matter the security measures taken, Carson-Sandler remembers.

Ms Carson-Sandler was attacked in her home in Citrus Heights.

In accordance with CNN, the primary recorded rape was on June 18, 1976, when the sufferer was dozing in mattress along with her three-year-old son after her husband left for work.

She says she hopes she'll have the opportunity to face her attacker in person.
