Has The Golden State Killer been Caught? Details not heard before.

If you’re like a lot of people, you’re dying (no pun intended) to learn more about The Golden State Killer.  I blogged last week just after Joseph Angelo was arrested as a prime suspect. I noted some of the basic info about The Golden State Killer that law enforcers released after his arrest.

Since that time, there have been many articles and TV newscasts adding more details about The Golden State Killer case. But, one of the most interesting sources of info of late is an article about a re-broadcast of  a “48 hours” program shown a year ago. The article is not just about The Golden State Killer, but about many of the key players who kept the case alive after 40 years of frustrating and fruitless investigations.

One of the key players was writer Michelle McNamara who doggedly pursued info on the case, publishing both before and after her sudden death at age 46. Her husband, comedian Patton Oswalt, helped posthumously publish her manuscript as I’ll Be Gone in the Dark. McNamara’s death, BTW, was not the result of foul play. She died as the result of taking a variety of prescribed drugs on top of an undiagnosed heart problem.

Once you read the article—or watch the 48 Hours piece—see if you think Joseph DeAngelo is The Golden State Killer. Is the “frail” man wheeled into court the one who committed at least 50 rapes and 12 murders across the state of California? Or is his defense attorney just playing the “Old Man” card.  That didn’t work last week for “blind and aging” Bill Cosby in his second trial.


Again, with new details under your belt, do you think Joseph DeAngelo’s the guy who terrorized California for decades?
