Police say they have a break in the old ‘Golden State Killer’ case. A former police officer’s been arrested in the case from the late 1970’s which died down, but the cold case ignited again in 2016. A DNA match in the last week has tied 72 year old Joseph James DeAngelo. He was fired from the Auburn Police Department back in 1979 for stealing a can of dog replant and a hammer from a drug store. He’s so far been arrested on suspicion of committing four murders in Sacramento and Ventura counties. The killer also raped several women aging from 13 to 41 years old. He was first known as the East Area Rapist, then the Original Night Stalker for some Southern Calif. killings and the Diamond Knot Killer for a binding method on two of his victims.

The Sacramento Bee is reporting police are going to make an announcement any moment now that they’ve arrested a suspect who’d been living in the Sacramento area and was found out after lighting up the old cold case again in 2016. The Sacramento County Sheriff’s Department and District Attorney Anne Marie Schubert working the case, but hae not publicly announced who the suspect is. The paper reports Joseph Deangelo was booked into county jail Tuesday for two counts of murder but it’s not been confirmed. The newspaper reports Deangelo lived at a home in Citrus Heights where police were seen this morning. The Golden State Killer was also known as the East Area Rapist, the Original Night Stalker and the Diamond Knot Killer. Cops say the suspect killed at least a dozen people, raped as many as 45 and burglarized hundreds of homes in the Sacramento area, Central Valley, Bay Area and Southern California in the late 1970’s.
