Police did not explain why they focused on 72-year-old Joseph James DeAngelo, a former police officer and retiree living in Citrus Heights, California, report the Los Angeles Times, the Sacramento Bee and the New York Times.

Another neighbor, Robin Brown, noticed the police tape at DeAngelo's home but figured he was getting his driveway repaved.

Much has been written about the Golden State Killer - he's been the subject of numerous books, a hit TV show on HLN that began airing earlier this year, and hundreds of articles - but few know the case better than Holes.

The match led to Joseph James DeAngelo, who was sacked in 1979 from the police department in Auburn, northeast of Sacramento.

DeAngelo also worked as a police officer in the small Central Valley of Exeter from 1973 to 1976.

"The answer was always going to be in the DNA", she said. "We found the needle in the haystack and it was here in Sacramento".

According to the Sacramento County district attorney Anne Marie Schubert, is probably "one of the most popular and undiscovered until recently, cases of serial murder in modern history".

"We played cards at the house, had family nights", he said.

"The haunting question of who committed these bad crimes has been put to rest", Orange County DA Tony Rackauckas said at the press conference. Alsip eventually was released for lack of evidence, and in the mid-1990s, advanced DNA evidence tied the murders to the Golden State Killer.

Most chilling, investigators believe the US navy vet murdered three times while he was a police officer in the Sacramento suburb of Auburn, Calif.

At the press conference with police, Harrington said he had been lobbying to bring DNA testing to the forefront of forensic science in California for years. "We are working with the Sacramento County District Attorney's Office on their investigation".

Cops continue to search Joseph James DeAngelo's suburban Sacramento home.

DeAngelo had reportedly lived in the home for two decades, and his last alleged crime took place in 1986.

Police have caught the "Golden State Killer", a man allegedly responsible for the murders of at least 12 people and 50 rapes during the 1970s and 80s.

Brian and Katie Maggiore were fatally shot in Rancho Cordova on February 2, 1978 while walking their dog.

Between June 1976 and January 1978, when DeAngelo worked in Auburn, at least 28 rapes in the Sacramento area were linked to the East Area Rapist.

Two months later, an attacker started terrorizing Santa Barbara County, California - more than 300 miles south of Sacramento. Merciless raped three ladies and is the prime suspect within the abduction and homicide of a fourth lady, in response to The Australian. Mr.

"We have no information the person was linked to Australia", Ms Schubert said.

Authorities made a decision to publicize the case in advance of the 40th anniversary of his first known assault in Sacramento County.

Armed with a gun, the masked attacker terrorised communities by breaking into homes while single women or couples were sleeping. Then the rapist would bind the woman and re-bind the man. Then, he came back to rape her, she told HLN's Michaela Pereira.

"Thousands of nightmares and thousands of sleepless nights by everybody", she told CBS News. "He would just disappear". I'm mad that he is the East Area Rapist, the Original Night Stalker and the Golden State Killer.

Also on the Federal Bureau of Investigation website are interviews with local police who investigated the Sacramento area rapes.

Jane Carson-Sandler said: I have just been overjoyed, ecstatic.

"I was absolutely flabbergasted", said Ron Osborn, DeAngelo's brother-in-law. But it was a man wearing a ski mask over his face and carrying a knife.

Before assaulting her, he moved her son from her side, but she doesn't know where. Even years later, she recalled in the recorded interview, she often felt "the tinglies, like someone's watching you". "Either he had some trauma or had something that caused that".

"He seemed like a nice guy, it's just mindblowing", said Tim Muriset. I didn't want someone else to tell him.

DeAngelo is also suspected of being the Visalia Ransacker, who burglarized more than 100 homes and killed College of the Sequoia journalism professor Claude Snelling.
