The Golden State Killer

 

For over 40 years, a rapist and murderer called the Golden State Killer had never been apprehended.  But as of April 25th, authorities now have a suspect in custody, 72 year old Joseph Deangelo of Citrus Heights, California.  This is his mugshot alongside one of the many composite sketches drawn of him over the years.


As promised, here is a link to the truly terrifying phone call that police recorded of the East Area Rapist.  He is saying, “Gonna kill you. Gonna kill you. Bitch. Bitch. Whore” Stacy is even too scared to listen to this insanity, so you have been warned!


There are no photographs of the couple we discussed, Brad and Sylvia Garnett, who survived and got the best of the East Area Rapist.  But this comprehensive website has a detailed account of what they endured: http://www.coldcase-earons.com/48.php


Stacy didn’t do her normal in-depth research for this one, because it’s just too big of a case.  But if you want to listen to a podcast that does fantastic in-depth coverage of each and every crime committed by this monster, you’re going to want to checkout Casefile.  Here is a link to the first in a 5 episode series.
